Description:

A Murrine theme that started with the fabulous Conte Murrine idea, converted to blue, simplified, and made more compact for anyone who's either on a smallish screen or just likes a minimal theme. Stays out of the way and looks nice while it does it. The Widget Factory preview doesn't get it across too well, so look at the 2nd.

No Metacity, but there's an Openbox and an Emerald. The icons in the screenshot are Simple, the font is Liberation Sans.

I don't know about licenses, I guess you can just do whatever you want with it?

Thanks! That quote actually is part of my conky, it's a script that pulls quotes from tinybuddha.com and then plops them on the desk. I'm not too familiar with Tolle, sadly.

Thanks! There are a few more things I'd like to do, but I'm not positive they can be done solely with the Murrine engine.

Plus I probably need to learn how to make a metacity theme so the GNOME folk aren't left high and dry.

to be honest, at first glance, it doesn't seem too amazing... but then I noticed the slim scroll bars which really look good and give this theme a bit of uniqueness.

good job, and keep it up!

Yeah the widget-factory screen doesn't do it justice, especially in thumbnail form. It's just a simple theme that doesn't do anything fancy. Stays out of your way and looks smooth.

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks!

I'm no GTK expert so I'm not sure how much I can mess with the geometry, but if there's any way to improve it let me know.
