Description:

Presenting Murrina Dreadful (in the obsolete sense of the word, though you're free to take it as you like ;)

Dreadful is: Flat. Retro. Gray. Its feelings are not hurt if ignored.

To make the theme more compact uncomment lines 16 and 59.

There's a fluxbox style, as well.

----------------------------------------

This theme started as a quick hack to strip the Murrina Humanity code base from the dark bug fixes and workarounds. To bug test it I threw something together loosely inspired by GNUstep and associated UIs. I was so pleased with the result, I thought I'd share. (I don't think it's bug free, yet. Tell me if you find anything.)

----------------------------------------

GTK+ based on and inspired by: DarkRoom by Kenneth Wimer & Conn O'Griofa, Shiki-Colors by perfectska04, and the GNUstep UI.
Fluxbox style based on carp by tenner.

I like this a lot. I love grey, flat, sexy themes like this one. ;D

Looks nice (apart from the toolbar handle), but the download link is taking me to a screenshot rather than the theme.

Excellent work on gray shades !

Very clean , easy on eyes.

A more compact version would be great too ( many gtk themes have huge buttons )

You can make the toolbar buttons smaller by commenting line 6. More compactness can be achieved by adding "GtkWidget::focus-padding = 0" in line 52 or thereabouts (it doesn't really matter as long as you're within the "theme-default" block).

Anything more substantial than this will considerably decrease the aesthetic appeal of the theme. But if you're feeling particularly brave you can remove all the "= theme-wide" and "= theme-wider", which will decrease widget padding.

There are a few more tricks, but I haven't experimented a lot with compactness to be able to help further.

Hope this helps.
