Don't vote BAD without telling us why you think the theme is bad. It really discourages themers like us, and quite a few themers have left GNOME-Look because of this.

NEW COOL GRASS THEME OUT.
The Cool Grass theme was created on request because of this comment: http://comments.deviantart.com/1/133539162/1168300233. Good things happen when you comment.


The Cool Suite of themes is a new set of themes I am writing as an experiment. I wanted a clean, light theme that was simple and elegant.

This theme includes a nice, compact Metacity theme designed to get rid of those ugly padded borders usually seen in most Metacity themes. (I'd like to give a shout out to the author of the X-Colors Lite Metacity and Clearlooks Compact Metacity themes)

On the colors and design: Highlighting text and selected items rarely get any love from themers (AFAIK), so I set out to see what would happen if I tried to make it look a little nicer. This is it.

Each color has been carefully chosen to make the theme look great in light and dark conditions, on all widgets, and on selected items and text.

This theme is speedy. Try it out and leave me a comment/favorite/etc. I thrive on feedback so let me know if you want new colorschemes, designs, or anything else.

NOTE: The JPEG screenshots (the PNG was over 300kb) doesn't really do the theme justice. You have to try it out.

It seems in your preview that there is an icon in action button (e.g Cancel button), but there are none after I try the theme. Is there any way I could do it?

Sure. In the gtkrc file (~/.themes/Cool Breeze/gtk-2.0/gtkrc), delete or comment out the line that says "gtk-button-images = 0". I believe it's Line 9.
