Description:

This theme is a small attempt to make one good (convenient) desktop instead of thousands beauty but... ugh,.. useless (sic! :( ) themes.
So I added colours to one of standard FC theme - Nodoka. It simply makes window buttons much MORE VISIBLE. Something alike was made in http://fedora-art.org/content/show.php/Saturglass?content=106292 and, for XFCE by me at http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/MicrodeckC?content=137469

Thus I present NodokaC.

I build it for myself using standard metacity xml. New button colours are given inside metacity-theme-1.xml in web-#HHHHHH format. Feel free to look in metacity-theme-1.xml and change it if you like. Search-and-replace should help you change it in every place where needed. Other colours are tuned via gtk-theme as usual.

Install:
Download file and unpack into ~/.themes folder. Archive contains also files from original Nodoka theme for convenience. Select theme NodokaC for metacity using standard measures of distro (smth. like gnome-appearance-properties->Modify->Window->Select from the list).
Effect is immediate (for my F10).

I happen to like this metacity theme very much. If you're using Scientific Linux 6 Alpha 3 then as you know using Emerald is not an option so this theme is your next best choice. I like the color choice as well. Nice effort. Congratulations.

I'm glad, that my publication was useful and saved you some work and time of life ;) I'm using Scientific Linux v.5.x, so I don't meet your mentioned problem.
And you may wish to look at my other work of this kind - for XFCE: http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/MicrodeckC?content=137469. Since it's a bitmap-based theme it could be usefull, too.
