Description:

Blended is a simple theme designed to blend in with the menu bar to create a smooth appearance.

The theme was designed with the Clearlooks GTK2 theme in mind, but works well with other themes that have plain menu bars.

Inculdes 4 theme variations:

Blended ( Top corners rounded)
BlendedDoubleRound (Top and bottom corners rounded)
BlendedSmall (Smaller window butons)
BlendedSmallDoubleRound

--------------NOTE--------------
If you want all 4 variations make sure they are all coppied to your themes folder as at least for me installing through theme preferences only installs the last theme.

I would like a version of BlendedSmall where the top corners aren't squared.

Then you'll have all possible variations covered and everybody can shut up :-)

Wonderful theme, been using this for quite some time and it never gets old!

Hello.
First let me tell me how much I love this theme it is by far my favorite. I just have one question. How would I get rid of the box the encloses the buttons? I would like the buttons to be flush with border. No dark box around them.

i know i'm going to repeat what was said earlier, but would it be possible to make a version, where the buttons don't have the background (only a dark symbol showing which button it is)? i know this was useful when you had to distinguish the active from inactive window, but right now, Ubuntu for example, makes the titlebar transparent in the inactive window, so there's no use for that anymore.

and this would make it even more "Blended" ;)

also, is there any way do "disable" the button on the left side of the titlebar so that the program icon would be visible (like in standard Human theme, for example)?

anyway, this theme is very good and i'm going to stick with it for a looong time.

Isnt this compleately stolen from the Darkwood theme?

Darkwood was submitted on Aug 24 2007, while Blended have been around since Jul 3 2005, I think it is more likely that Darkwood creator includes Blended as a part of his theme, not the other way around.

I think if you look into Darkwood's metacity theme folder, you'll see that it is, in fact, Blended. :)

Now my favorite metacity theme. Looks great with Aurora GTK theme. Good job!

Would it be possible to make the maximize,minimize,unmaximze and menu buttons black when windows are in focus. At the moment, it's hard for me to distinguish between focused and unfocused windows.

Also will it be possible to change the colors of icons on the buttons when the mouse is over them.

For example the close (X) icon could turn red, the minimize (_) icon yellow and the unmaximize icon green when the mouse it over them.

Just some thoughts I feel can improve usability. Thanks for your good work.

I would love this theme to have a "borderless" variant like the "Simple-Slim" theme.

Combining the two highest rated themes in one would just be perfect!

I don't like it personally (like say I would prefer one flowers to others), but the idea and its implementation is excellent! I have been trying to find the best matched GTK engine and icon set for this - my choice was Clearlooks (GTK theme) and Snowish. It needs more work to make the complete set (GTK theme/icons/ default colours and fonts) and then I think it must be included in distros.

Great work!

Could you do a version without recessed buttons for the focused window? I don't like the way it looks like they're pressed. Also, it would be good if you differentiated between the middle buttons when maximized and normal.
