Description:

White theme with buttons that are hidden until mouse-over.

Also my first metacity theme.

To install extract the archive into ~/.themes and use the Theme Manager to set Sunward as your window border.


Note: The borderless version just makes the borders appear to be missing. The reason for this is that with no borders, windows aren't resizable.

This is another really beautiful theme, and I think it was a great idea to add the colored window borders. even the name fits, unlike most of the theme names on here. However, the invisible close/resize buttons actually do diminish the usability. very light ones would be much better.

It look good, but it would be even better if it didn't have left-right-bottom borders(if it's possible..i never made themes myself)
or they were as thin as possible.

It's nice, but I'm not sure I like the buttons being black on hover. They seem a little too abrupt for me. Maybe if they were a silver colour or something.

Good work!

very nice and fresh.

but can you please remove the white border around the windows when they are maximised? i feel so hemmed in this border ;)

Looks nice.
But it would be even nicer if it hides the left, right and bottom border when a window is maximized. Also it would be nice if it got it's colors from gtk.

… the idea is really nice and it looks smooth.
At the moment I'm missing graphics that indicate the press-status, maybe add some?
