I fixed the issue that caused that error, it will be released with the next update. However, I'm not 100% sure it will fix your crashes... were you getting those errors when gnome-panel started up or when it was actually crashing?

Now this is a GOOD aqua-like theme. Not another Mac-weird, this one is very fresh.

Could you make XFCE window borders?

Keep it up.

What font are you using for the title bar in the second screenshot?

It's called Zekton Bold, and I don't recall where I acquired it.

Thanks for making it a little less OS-X like. It looks much more unique.

This Theme is incredible. I have been looking for a theme that would top the clearlooks-graphite and this IS IT (sorry lockheed ;) ).

Attention to detail, soft transitions and borders, gnome-panel, drop down boxes, and overall feel is breathtaking.

Incredible work and keep developing this! Although the current color theme is almost perfect in every way and easy on the eyes I can't imagine what other color variations you coculd come up with. It would be hard to improve upon perfection...

I would like to comment a few more things:

http://elysium.dnsalias.net/web/nautilus.png

- The navigation icons in nautilus appear as low quality images and a little washed out

- The unclickable buttons (circled in the picture above) don't have the same soft and smooth look that seems to be part of the themes personality (gray dots look ugly), but that's just my personal impression.

- The path buttons in nautilus (circled below the navigation button in the image above) Does NOT show a clear indication of which button is selected. If you look carefuly you will see that the selected button is darker gray and not glossy but has bold font, the unselected button has a glossy skin but the font is not bold. The visual cues seem to be contradicting each other regarding which button is really selected

Thank you for the feedback & criticism-- the more people criticize, the better I can make the theme...

I just fixed one of those three issues, with the active path button in nautilus. I just darkened the border around the button, I think that gives a better indication that it is the "active" button.

Regarding the other two issues, I will fix them in time. I'm not yet sure how to fix the dead buttons with the dots, but I'll look into it. I had kind of intended the fuzziness on the stock (toolbar) buttons, as the theme is supposed to have an airy, easy on the eyes, (while also hi-tech and practical) feel to it. I'm sure I can improve the icons, however-- I suppose blurriness isn't easy on the eyes at all. :-/ I could easily just sharpen them, but I think I'd prefer to just redesign all the icons... so that will have to wait until version 0.5.

Thanks again.

can this be ported to gtk 1.x in any way (I see you have the gimp opened in one of those screenshots -doesn't that use gtk1?).
Its's one of the best themes I have seen.

Gimp has been using GTK2 for some time now. Maybe when I'm done with this theme I will port it to GTK1, but don't hold your breath.

Metacity: MoreIndustrial
Icons: Crystal Clear

They should both be on this site somewhere...

Thanks, I've found it at art.gnome.org and changed it a bit so that the maximize and minimize buttons correspond to their function and also changed it so that the bottoms are corners and not rounded.

Replace ~/.themes/Water Vapor/gtk-2.0/gtkrc with the file above - to fix white/black font-color on tabs.

NOTE: DO NOT APPLY this patch as of version 0.2! It will b0rk the theme in a major way.

I appreciate the patch toby, but next time would you mind just using diff and sending the patch to me? it's just more tidy that way. thanks.

Sorry about that, you're right..
It seems you fixed it anyway, so I'm just going to pull my copy down.
