My apologies to the bad vote on this theme yesterday; I have been recently writing reviews for EL17, and when I tried the samui theme it reminded me of the endless OSX clone alikes. This is different. I would like to take back my bad vote, and say you did a great job on this.

The theme I was confused with was a Detour mimic theme for EL17 on http://www0.get-e.org/Themes/E17/

My apologies again, rock on.

i must say i started to consider if i should continue posting my themes on gnome-look due to bad comments.

thanks, not everybody will come back here to accept he was wrong so let me say thanks again.

btw, i wasn't able to find the 'mimic' theme for enlightenment :P

Yes I like it, especially the way how some of my gtk applications look.

However, there is a problem sometimes with fitting the icons into button background (eg. evolution's new button or install, details and save buttons in theme chooser). They are either to close to borders, or they are not aligned consistently etc.

It also bothers me that blue higlights are not of the same shade everywhere.

This is ruing otherwise neat and polished feeling of this theme.

Fix this and I may consider abandoning my themes, in favour of Samui :))

to be sincere i don't use evolution myself so i just missed it.

i will look closer to this but appart from a weird "new..." button i can't find any issues. can you provide images?

about the colors used, you'll see they fit well when item is selected (matching normal task button) and unselected (matching selected task button). to me looks good that way, hope people agree.

for 'theme details' i can't do anything, that's because buttons are too round. since the original theme looks like that i'm not going to change it.

still trying to solve the evolution thing, i guess the developers had clearlooks in mind while designing the interface... ^^

Nice job porting this. looks great.

@Fedorateur
where do you see aqua or brushed in this theme? Just because it is a mac port doesn't make it brushed or aqua.
