[help ME! READ PLEASE!]

I want make something like this prototype (made in gimp).

The emerald isn't a big problem but I have some question about the gtkrc:

IS POSSIBLE WITH THE PIXMAP ENGINES REPEAT (AND NO STRETCH) THE BG IMAGE OF THE WINDOWS (MAYBE:bg_pixmap[normal] ="URL")??

THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!

Thanks the line is (standard [i hope]) in the menubar.rc
EXEMPLE OF MINE MENUBAR.RC WITH THE IMAGE:
##FILE MENUBAR.RC
style "menubar"
{
fg[NORMAL] = "#000000"
text[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#000000"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#000000"
text[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff"

xthickness = 2
ythickness = 1
engine "pixmap"
{
image
{
function = BOX
state = NORMAL
file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar-gray.png"
border = { 3, 3, 3, 3 }
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = BOX
state = ACTIVE
file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar-gray.png"
border = { 3, 3, 3, 3 }
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = BOX
state = INSENSITIVE
file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar-gray.png"
border = { 3, 3, 3, 3 }
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = BOX
recolorable = TRUE
state = PRELIGHT
file = "Menu-Menubar/menubar-item.png"

border = { 10, 10, 10, 10 }
stretch = TRUE
}

}
}

What I mean to say, is that it has old world "Curb Appeal"... Like from a Victorian "Painted Lady" all that's missing is the Wainscotting, Crown Moulding, and there we go... Please Please Please see this theme concept through to fruition, and don't just include an emerald theme, but please a Xfwm4 theme as well!

GREAT concept!

Ha, that's funny! I'm working on a theme like this for a while now.
I don't have much time to work on it but it will probably be finished in a few days.

My attempt was a bit different though, I used transparent buttons and control elements which was a bit tricky to do. Still have lots of things to do (progress at aroun 60%).

Here is a preview:

The idea is not new; already saw yet in some old gtk themes... I think you should add some lines for Metacity into gtkrc like this one:
code:
############### METACITY #############################

style "metacity-frame"
{
# Focused title background color
bg[SELECTED] = @bg_color

# Focused title text color
fg[SELECTED] = @fg_color

bg_pixmap[NORMAL]="Others/window.png" # the path for the image to load as window background

}

class "MetaFrames" style "metacity-frame"
class "GtkWindow" style "metacity-frame"

################## F-SPOT ##################################

You already mentioned it, it's possible with

bg_pixmap[NORMAL]="background_image.png"

Not?
