- Square corners or rounded corners
- Border width
- Colorized or non colorized borders
- Interior outline

- Title text with or without shadow
- Controls style: simple, dark frame or clear frame
- Buttons size and gap
- Button menu with arrow or application icon

I really wanted to download, but I kept getting errors about the link. Finally went directly to sourceforge and got this message after searching.

The sourceforge.net website is temporarily in static offline mode.
Only a very limited set of project pages are available until the main website returns to service.

I'll have to remember to come back and try again sometime.

The issue I have is that at each of the bottom corners, there seems to be an extra pixel that creates some uglyness when the window border is dark and rounded. I'll upload a pic later. It's not too major--only one pixel, but it looks kind of funny

Great theme! Is there any way to round just the top corners for this theme and not all four corners? If there is not a way to do it in the configuration app, is there at least a way to hack it by hand? Keep up the good work. It would be amazing if this them had a glossy look to it like the Royale theme for Windows XP Media Center.

One of the best looking metacity themes I have seen that perfectly compliments Clearlooks.

My only gripe is that the pressed button colour doesn't seem to be taken from the current GTK theme and so is always yellow unless you specify your own colours for everything including the pressed buttons colour.

Would it be possible to create an option whereby the pressed button colour is taken directly from the GTK theme and makes one of the GTK theme colours either darker or lighter for the pressed button colours?

Thanks

I really like the clearbox-look theme, but I would like the application icon to be on the left menu button, instead of an arrow.

Is there anyway you could edit it somehow?

I love this theme and I'm a sf.net nut. I'd be thrilled if you'd make the following text go away from your project page.:

"This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map."

If you get my drift. ;-)

Thanks.

Very nice. Could you remove padding from control buttons so that they take all are - with no dead pixels on edges?

just like metabox does

speaking of buttons, aren't they too close to each other? I'm not a fitts law zealot but I think a little more space between the buttons would be more friendly.

I think that the size and separation of the controls is the suitable one. If you want a greater separation you can change it easy. Edit the metacity-theme-1.xml file and change the value of aspect_ratio in line 20 to 1,0 or 1.1.
Thanks for the commentaries.

distance name="right_titlebar_edge" value="0"/
