Score 71%
Description:

A silverish shiny little theme powered by the clearlooks engine featuring some extra pixart.

The theme is now meant to come as a metapackage including a gtk2 theme, a metacity theme, a gdm theme and a usplash theme.

untar the archive in your /home/user/.themes/ folder or in your /usr/share/themes/ folder as root for complete desktop integration.

You may like the tango-noir icon set or my customized shining silver icon set.

The theme includes the GTK main theme and the metacity that goes along !

You'll NO MORE have to install the murrine engine to have the theme work on your computer.

Final + GDM + usplash

Final: Rewrote the gtkrc entirely and based it completely upon the clearlooks engine.

Additionnaly, I tweaked quite a lot of things and smoothed a lot of shades.

Added better contrast for buttons and menus.

v3.1: tweaked a couple of widgets. Now the themes looks quite close to what I had in mind...

v3.0: Changed menubar and panel

Entirely redesigned the metacity theme (pixart and code) which is now based on the human metacity code.

Added new features - a couple of parameters are now powered by both the murrine and the clearlooks engine.

Slightly modified the color scale.

Corrected some minor display issues.

V2.0: New menubar, slightly darker shades on some widgets, tooltips modified.

V1.1: slicker (in my humble opinion) metacity decoration.

V1.0 original release

Well I suppose the murrine engine is only good to a point. Its main problem/asset is precisely its being graphically too 'murrine'... you get bored of it...

But it's a good thing it actually exists as it give people the opportunity to have a choice and learn from what has been achieved so far. I'm sure clearlooks/ubuntulooks/murrine will 'merge' in a way or another at some point.

The theme suggests an iconset. Are you going to release it?
