The latest version of the theme is here:

After you download the file "VistaBut.tar.gz.txt", you should rename it, removing the extension "txt".

Very nicely done. Love the theme! If I might make a couple of suggestions:

1 - The active window in the window list has the slightly darker shading on top and the other windows have this at the bottom. The active one doesnt really stand out that well. A different colour shading, perhaps?

2 - The window border is a bit too ... white. Windows tend to blend a bit too well into each other. Maybe a bit more colour at the edge or something?

On the previews, active windows have color on their min/max/close buttons, but when I install the theme I only see colors on rollover. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks! Gorgeous look.

I like the theme and would like to use it, but the File > Edit > View .. buttons are too dark, what can I do to make the text brighter? (running Edgy)

Report

For to install this theme in the Ubuntu Edgy, it's necessary before to install the package "gtk2-engines-pixbuf” (sudo aptitude install gtk2-engines-pixbuf). This same recommendation is valid for all the themes based on engine "pixmap". (“vide” http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288105).

This is a nice theme!
To get it to look normal you have to
install the Qtpixmap engine.
Search for pixmap engine.

I installed the packages gtk2-engines-qtpixmap and gtk-engines-pixmap. It not yet functions in my Ubuntu Edy.

I not yet obtained to install the “Vista But” in the Ubuntu Edgy. The package “gtk2-engines” already was installed in the system and I still installed the package “gtk-engines-pixmap”. Exactly thus, the theme does not function. It was my theme preferred in the Dapper…

Installed it on Edgy, but I get the default ugly non-themed gnome when choosing it. Do I need some engine installed?

why the close button in metacity theme is different to the one in xfvm4? I love the xfvm4's one. Why don't you use the same close button on both theme?
