Description:

This is a derivative of my other work, KillBang Wow! This one offers flatter, more transparent buttons and a flatter and more modern look than you see in most themes.

KillBang Wow! was also created by tweaking and pulling some themes together, most notably Mira and Aurora Black Panther. So This one is a further tweaked version of those themes.

Also note, that the metacity theme is just LxG with a brushed metal skin instead of a glossy look. I will try to replace this when i get the time. It was merely what i was working with when i was trying to create this theme. His theme is here:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/LxG-Egalite?content=92101

I removed the overused glossy buttons people are using and i tried something completely different. My buttons and active panel buttons blend in almost seamlessly to the background and a gradient makes it look like its popping up at you... but not glossy.

I hope you like it.

ignore that warning about needing another engine... i'm not sure why it pops up like that, but you don't need anything else.

thanks for the kind words.

what gtk theme engine does this require. i have it installed on my 'mint' desktop but it says the required gtk theme engine is not installed and theme will not look as intended. i think it looks sweet but if i need a different engine then i want it because i really like this theme. now i'm looking for a really good wallpaper to go with it!

i like the black brushed metal. i agree the tabs need more work. i would definitely strive to make them original (not like everyone else's). i like the tabs in 'glassy blue' the hp theme because it creates the illusion there is a light above the selected tab. maybe you could make the tab appear more reflective or something. this theme really kicks some butt. take your time and keep working on this. rated good!!

In my opinion, this is one of the very best themes I have ever seen. And I have one question for you, what do you do on the gtkrc to put the glossy images in the boxes near the tab buttons on the screenshot?
I want to learn how this work...

Thanks in advance

Nice overall theme.

1: what is that font you're using?
2: I think you'd need to change the buttons. the text on them is barely readable.
3: Same applies to check and radio buttons
