Description:

This is my first Metacity theme.

I've done this theme to save space on my netbook's small screen. I hope you will like it.

It is based on the metacity theme stasz.

I didn't find any nice name so I've call it "Elegant Small Dark"...

Enjoy!

UPDATE :
New version with black border now available !

I wasn't too convince by the white border so I've made a black version. I think it looks much better. Just give it a try !

Great work, this is just what I was looking for with the white border, One small question though, can you tell me which part of ~/.themes/Elegant Small Dark WB/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml to tweak to make the title bar slighty taller.

I am seeing the titlebar buttons overlay the white border at the moment and would prefer the titlebar to have a little more height anyways.

Thanks in advance.

Wjhether or not this was the correct way, I changed a 0 to a 5 on this line:

<border name="title_border" left="0" right="0" top="5" bottom="0"/>

I think there was two occurances.

Hi Subbass,
Thanks for your comment, I'm happy you like this theme.

I didn't check the xml file because I think you've found the right value ;)

I forgot...
You can also change the title bar font size in gnome preferences to play with the size of the title bar ;)

Thanks for the reply, I did consider changing the font size as a possibility, but I am happy with that the way it is so discovering the value to adjust was the right thing for me :]

I can foresee keeping this theme for quite some time now :]
