Is there a way to use this in Beryl, most themes you can just change .cgwdtheme to .emerald, but it doesn't work for this one.

I've held off on asking this for as long as compiz themes have been showing up, hoping that I'd mess around with the thing myself and answer my own question. However . .

Side notes:
With compiz, we've got a window decorator that provides absolutely rock-solid performance with drop shadows enabled; and we've also got some new keyboard shortcuts that allow us to modify the window size without having to drag a window border. So, I absolutely cannot get over the fact that every compiz theme has a window border that's 5px+ thick.

So, my question is: are these borders all 5px thick because of a limitation of the current compiz modification methods, or am I just one of an extremely small minority of people who think thick window borders are absolutely unflattering?

and from now on borders are customizable. Use sharp version (2px).

This is Compiz limitation.
However this theme is designed to imitate original Dapper theme so boarder is needed (but should be 2px thiner).

And thx for Vote ;)

Thanks for letting me know--I'm much happier knowing it's a compiz limitation and not all of our designers' tastes.

Just as a side comment--I didn't mean to bash your theme directly: I think it's a great replacement for the Ubuntu window border. In fact, I just voted it up.

Thanks for this, its nice to have the the default look back whilst running compiz. With regards to the buttons, have you sought advice over on the compiz forums?
