Further Darkened the in-focus Metacity frame to create greater contrast in the title

I only use two themes for Murrine - AquaIsh and yours. Other themes don't look good to me:)

The buttons are very elegant, not too shiny and not too dull. Nice colors!

But can you do something with title bar - someone mentioned that with some themes it's hard to read.

I'm voting up:) Thanks!

Thank You, I'm glad to hear it!

I use only metacity for the window manager and, therefore, the window title. For this theme I usually use the Murrine or MurrineRounded themes.

I've tried to create greater contrast in the in-focus metacity frame and the title text without darkening it up too much.

If this doesn't work, I may have to hack-together a custom metacity theme, as neither of those themes allow a good deal of control from the gtkrc file (they only use two of the gtk colors: bg[NORMAL] and bg[SELECTED])

Let me know if this addresses the readability issue.

To add more roundedness, I'd have to put together a custom theme, which my motivation is curently a little short on.

Cheers! and thank you again for the compliment.

Hey,

this theme is wonderful !!

i just have 2 bad points.

1. make the top corners slightly rounded
2. the text in the app bar is hard to read.. perhaps change that to a little more readable.. or a little more shadow.

for the rest it`s absolutely wonderful
good job.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll see what I can do about making the title bar text more readable.

I'm wondering which corners you're refering to, to make more round.

The titlebar :) the same bar where the text is hard to read.
