Raaaah, that "Pro Linux & Anti- Windows" is making me feel sick xD.
That's JUST a THEME.
Who cares if it's a Windows theme and port to Linux ? What ? It reminds you Vista or Windows ? So every icons of Vista thingy or close to Windows must not hurt our dear Linux Desktop because that's trully a shame !! Ah ah...

That's why Linux is poor in good looking GTK themes, someone will always shout that it's a Windows-ed thing and has not its place in Linux world.

I'm currently porting it. I've already made a part of the metacity, only some buttons are missing. For the GTK, I've got a problem. Do you guys know how to put the panel & menu text in white instead of black ? I've search but didn't found it... thx :).

How far have you gotten on the metacity? and is it pixmap or metacity code?

This is code, except the icons which are currently from Clearlooks2, which I will change. Also need to do the title text, make the buttons square, and a few other adjustments.

For the panel
style "panel"
{
fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#000000"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#000000"
fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#8A857C"

text[NORMAL] = "#161616"
text[PRELIGHT] = "#000000"
text[ACTIVE] = "#000000"
text[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
text[INSENSITIVE] = "#8A857C"
}
widget "*PanelWidget*" style "panel"
widget "*PanelApplet*" style "panel"
class "*Panel*" style "panel"
widget_class "*Mail*" style "panel"
class "*notif*" style "panel"
class "*Notif*" style "panel"
class "*Tray*" style "panel"
class "*tray*" style "panel"

For the menu, you are opening a can of worms. See

updated again :D

heh, I've never used the theme. I don't have wb installed anymore and rarely go to windows, so I don't know if the screenshot is showing an active or inactive window. I just did it this way because I liked it.

Without making the titlebar bigger I couldn't make the button icons exactly the same because the screenshot shows the bottom of the button border disappearing, and I didn't like that look. I have thought about making the button border highlight a little more transparent though.

Of course, you can make your own metacity, it's just something I felt like doing. It's code and not pixmap (except the icons) so it will render much faster and all the window states work correctly.

How's the gtk coming along?

What a coincidence !! I dreamt about that theme and told myself to port it o.O.

Ah ah, thanks for the artwork :).
