First of all I think you did a great job with this theme and I hope you'll maintain it for a long time.
Second I would like to say that I think the scroll bar is a little narrow and could be (almost) as the width of the square decoration.
And about the decoration I think on the mouse hoover effect you could add a minus [ - ] a plus [ + ] and an x [ x ] for minimize, maximize/restore and close, like a mac style. Or you could add that not just for the hoover effect but the default, either way I think is a good ideea.
Just look at it, it looks great: [ - ] [ + ] [ x ]
or ... [-] [+] [x]
Or make available the decoration for both options if you think it's a good ideea, with and without hoover effect signs/indicators.
Thanks for the theme !

As an expression of thanks for this elegant theme, I would like to share my thoughts on 2 potential areas for improvement:
1) Colors of window control buttons: the colors we see when hovering could be red, amber and green (this is already there) although I'm not a fan of Mac. The fact that they are all blue until you hover on them is creative and different enough and better than Mac, I think.
2) In Nautilus (without the menu bar) the title bar and path/tool bar could perhaps be more compatible with each other. This might be mostly because of the design of Nautilus. Isn't it possible to have just a frame around the files and folders window and nothing in between the title bar, side bar and path/tool bar?

I've tried alt+f2 then r but it doesn't work. Restarting doesn't work either.

Hi. I get the following error when trying to preview your theme,

Error loading theme: Line 162 character 27: Failed to open file '/home/satya/.themes/Orion-Mint/metacity-1/close_focused_prelight.png': No such file or directory

You are missing a file close_focused_prelight.png. So the theme fails to load. Please correct that.

You had wrong file names. I just corrected them. For example you used "closed" instead of "close". I also updated the metacity and mutter themes with the one I am currently working on locally.

You will need to restart your window manager.

If you use Gnome Shell, press Alt+F2, then type 'r' and press "Enter"

If you use Unity, press Alt+F2, then type 'compiz --replace' and press "Enter"

If you use Gnome Classic, press Alt+F2, then type 'metacity --replace' and press "Enter"

I'm aware of the issue. But there is nothing I can do to fix it. See the Radiance theme also has the issue. LibreOffice is not native GTK and doesn't respect the text color there.

Yeah I think it's something LibreOffice may need to fix (Similar issue with Stock Ambiance and Netbeans IDE). I haven't been able to find a fix yet either.

BUG on scrollbar on chrome/chromium > http://www.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-05112012-100553am.php thanks

The scrollbar in Chrome/Chromium cannot be customized in the GTK theme. However website owners can customize the scrollbar. So the G+ scrollbar is customized by Google and it doesn't have anything to do with the GTK theme. For example, visit http://fedorautils.sf.net and you will get a custom scrollbar in Chrome.
