and big progress bar size it is program design problem, not style
if you look at third screen at top gnome-panel you can see gxmms with little progress bar size.

What is patched exactly? Coz what I see on the screen shot all can be achieved with reducing the x/ythichness and the style properties of the widgets. Besides the progress bar is still 20pixels with is really really ugly! Especially when used next to those tiny widgets...

Hi linvinus!

I can see a flag (us) in the tray on your screenshots. Is this a keyboard indicator?
Could you tell us where you got it?

Thanks!
