Description:

RGS - Root Green Square, (pun on Root Mean Square) is a smooth-ish theme which I find easy on my eyes and works well for my low-dpi low-contrast lcd, although it makes my expensive crt shine as well. First theme for public release. I decided that if I was going to share this theme, it had better be done now, else it will never be shared ever. Influences for this theme include:
- Aerials
- Rezlooks
- Clearlooks
- ClearLime
- My love-affair with green

Version 1.3 now includes a simple openbox theme

Version 1.1 and on of this theme uses the GTK+ 2.10 new niffty-ness of symbolic colours (so you can tweak the colours in the Theme Selector gui) and new clearlooks features (all of which should be in GNOME 2.18). As such it *requires* at least:
- GTK+ 2.10
- gtk-engines 2.10 (clearlooks)

Icon theme in screenshot is http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/art-pixmap-stuff+-+GNOME+2+revival?content=84548

It's a custom massive, 12MB poorly organized, pixmap icon theme which tries to preserve the gnome-2 original icon style with the new icon naming spec. I keep trying to weed out all the Tango/New GNOME I find because (flame warning) I HATE TANGO. It has NO CONTRAST and it's as if the point of the theme is TO MAKE ALL ICONS LOOK THE SAME. Most of the icons are from gperfection2, but that theme doesn't work very well now-a-days because of the introduction of the standardized icon naming spec.

Hopefully. now that gnome-2.18 is out, you should be able to tweak colours on your own :)

Aerials is close to what you request. It is what I got the black idea from, but uses blue. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aerials?content=39945

Although, I do have a blue one I'm fiddling with. Watch out for it.

nice theme!
where can I find the font "edges"?
And how to set transparency in system tray icons (like gajim and gaim)

I got the "edges" font from the artwiz-alexczapka font package (http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/) . I'm not to up-to-date on my distros (I run my own completely custom compiled system... yeah, wouldn't reccomend it) but I know ubuntu has a package for this, just search for artwiz. You might have to edit you fontconfig files as the artwiz fonts are bitmap fonts, which fontconfig hides in preference of vector fonts... or you may not have to.

As for the tray icons... I have no idea, as far as I can tell, you can't accurately (Request to developers?). Thus my "system notification area" is at the right of my bottom panel, which isn't transparent, while most every other applet is in my top panel, which is transparent. There seems to be a trend no-a-days to write tray-applets rather than actually applets, which leaves me in dismay.
