"change border whit trasparency."

Do you mean the grey color on the unfocused border is the transparency thing ?
I think that was not a very good choice of color. You should better use a "more white than grey" color for unfocused border...IMHO...

Great job for the other changes nevertheless !!!

What I mean is why did make the unfocus border so grey ? It is true that the colour should be different, but the white was cool, grey is a little too much IMO...

hi ciccio, your themes are awesome i really aprecciate all of your works :D

i'm now using xfwm4. althought it is very light, it is a bit more functional than metacity so i decided to use it :)

i'd love to use this theme on xfwm4, so is anyone interested on making it? i can do it but i need to have some sources to make all the buttons ;)

Hi,

I really like this theme. *very* well put togther, and I've been using the coloured theme for the last month.

one thing I changed... the window title bar and window are all the same colour. if a lot of things are open, the whole desktop is the same dull grey colour and its hard to make out individual windows quickly.

I found that I could make my desktop a lot friendlier by adding a little colour to the window title bars (there are 3 little graphics that need to be colourised (i think top_left, top_right, and top_middle.png or something like that)...
I gave them a tint of yellow and it makes it all stand out a lot better.

Its 84% and this theme is one of the best out there, if not the best!

1. Its fast! (I have tried them all)
2. Its looks modern!
3. Its not another mac clone!

Yes, I am sure he will continue to improve his themes, etc., nothing is perfect, but this is good stuff.
