I like all of them. Specially, the planolm_round.

planolm_ista is the only one that did not go well with my gtk theme.

Great work.

It's great, and it looks great with elementary theme.

I would love to have a "flat" version with no gradient, I will probably customize it soon...

Excellent work on this theme, panana! Using Clearlooks as a base theme, and then your Plano window borders - perfect!

Sorry, I can't remember. It's possible it was Lucida Grande, but I'm not sure.

I've been using this metacity for a long time. I never grow tired of it. It looks awesome with the clearlooks-colors gtk theme. Great work.

Perhaps the gtk theme that you are using is not compatible with this.
I recommend you to use aurora egine, murrina or defaults engines.

I have all three - and like I said, the issue applies to the screenshots as well. It isn't necessarily a bug, but it is a/the reason why I don't use it thus far.

I smoothed out the appearance by adding a line to the metacity file:

<!-- Draw the gradient on the title bar (top of the window) instead of using an image, on the off chance
that using metacity's built in drawing commands is faster/more efficient.-->
<gradient type="vertical" x="1" y="1" width="width-2" height="top_height">
<color value="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/1.30"/>
<color value="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/1.05"/> <!-- THIS LINE-->
<color value="gtk:bg[NORMAL]"/>
</gradient>

Somehow, this doesn't come up on my screen as unified (neither on my machine or in your screenshots) - there is a somewhat distinct border between metacity and gtk

great work otherwise.

Thanks! I have been looking for something like this...
Aesthetically, it makes more sense to grab the gtk color theme. I'm surprised we don't see this approach more often.
