Is there a port of this theme to XFCE4?

no.. I will port it when I finish it. Right now it's slow, buggy, and not nearly as nice looking as I'd like it to be. Stay tuned!

I know this theme is made to look great (and it does), but I just want to point out it is a real ressource hog currently. It is not even comparable with clearlooks or Glossy P, it brings my 2.4ghz+1gb ram computer to 1 second delay for switching tabs and workspaces... Otherwise, it is a very sweet-looking theme!

Hmm. The Pixmap theme engine is pretty limited. It's slower than others, it renders insensitive icons in a very ugly way, and it is very stifling for a designer. Easy to use but restrictive.

Anyway, WV should perform just as well or better than Glossy P. If anything, the file sizes are smaller. I get perfect performance, but I'm on a sick box. It even runs decently on my old PIII 800 though...

Try #commenting out line 26 of the gtkrc, "bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "brushed.png" and let me know if that helps.

Also I'd recommend upgrading to gnome 2.12 if you haven't already-- there is a huge performance increase.

Cheers.

Is there an easy way to hack this to use the application icon for the window menu (on the left)?

I've been a fan of the Water Vapor GTK theme. Now I have something to make Metacity look nice too.

Maybe one day there'll be an icon set as well.
