Description:

Theses themes use large buttons to make them easily clickable and GTK themes colors to be adaptable on them (see screenshots).
Contain :
- NaturA-simple : clear and large buttons collored
- NaturA : clear and large buttons collored width shadows
- NaturA-classic : uniformly colored titlebar and squared buttons
- NaturAlinea : drawn outline colored around edges and button area
- Alinea : drawn outline colored around edges
- Alinea-blended : shadowed buttons area.

With dark fixed color :
- NaturA-dark-simple
- NaturAlinea-dark
- Alinea-dark

For install: System > preference > appearance > Install button. Or extract the archive and copy the folders to ~/.themes.

NB :
- for GTK themes with a dark menu-bar as "shiki-themes" uses dark fixed color version. To change the background color of "NaturAlinea-dark" and "NaturA-dark-simple" remplace all occurences of "#3C3C3C" to your menu-bar color.
- can't change buttons position without modifying the code.

I really like the basic NaturAlinea titlebar, but wanted a colored background on the titlebar of the focused window. Hence, the following mod:

~/.themes/NaturAlinea/metacity-1$ diff modified_metacity-theme-1.xml metacity-theme-1.xml
174,175c174,177
< <rectangle color="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/.9" filled="true" x="0" y="0" width="width" height="Top_border"/>
< <rectangle color="gtk:bg[NORMAL]" filled="true" x="0" y="Top_border" width="width" height="top_height - Top_border"/>
---
> <gradient type="vertical" x="0" y="1" width="width" height="22">
> <color value="#ACCD8A"/>
> <color value="#E6E6E6"/>
> </gradient>

Hello,
Thanks for your interest and for sharing.
You have to modify "titlebar_bg_f" and "titlebar_bg_max_f" item to do this.
It seems that you have changed "titlebar_bg_n" item instead,
"f" for focused and "n" for normal or unfocused windows.
Also, is better to use height="top_height" instead of a fixed value.

Thanks for the response. I hadn't noticed that my maximized windows had an uncolored titlebar.

Oh wait, this is not your fault, it depends on gtk themes when the Gtk Theme has a darker/lighter toolbar then the bg color.
Using the fixed color dark version solves this issue, but the blue/red combination on my system isn't good looking.
