Do you plan to add a metacity theme in the future, please?
This GTK theme works great in Cinnamon, but you have to find a matching metacity theme.
I currently use Mint-Y-Dark-Blue cinnamon theme with it.

Thanks!

i'm afraid any investment in metacity is a waste of time, i don't see much of a future for metacity, but i'll look into it. if you can point me to any articles relevant to the future of metacity i'd very much appreciate it, and should i see any benefit from porting the wm theme i'll try to do it. happy new year! :)

Well, using Compiz with XFCE is a case where a metacity decoration would be of good use.

ouch, i had no idea compiz uses metacity. okay, you have a strong argument, so i'll look into it.

Any options to move buttons to the left corner of the window? Have been using this config for such a long time

hmmm... for xfwm window frames it should be doable by unlocking the button positioning and then you can move them from the xfwm configuration settings (but i have to check if i can still default them to the right and maintain the lock on which buttons are available and which are hidden). on the other hand, for gtk3-csd titlebars this is one of them things that i never investigated and i don't know how it's done. i'll look into it and if it's not too tedious i'll add an option. Happy new year! :)

yeah, the scrollbar handle decoration thingie wasn't all that easy as i thought (because of these new colorization options, otherwise it would have been much easier)

Scrollbars you can hit! Thank you for bucking that trend.

In the HACKING file, could you maybe include some detail on modifying the horizontal and vertical scrollbar's width and characteristics?

several new tweaking options are on their way (several coloring options plus a scrollbar-handle-decoration-on/off switch). wide/narrow scrollbars are already possible via the 'dpi-high/low' option (this will also set the dimensions of several other controls, such as menu and drop-down list buttons' arrows, etc). do you have anything else on your mind?

Any chance you add an option to have handles on the scrollbar, please?
Thanks!

yes, it should be relatively easy, but it will have to wait a little, for now i'm working on adding highlight colors on hovered/pressed buttons (this is important not just aesthetically, it's also an accessibility thing for... my mother :) plus, i'm really busy these days and i don't have time to work on this theme right now...

Retro, mid/light grey styles that look good with the gnome-colors icon theme in an appropriate color. Thank you for the thought given to future hackability, and the useful preview screenshots! It comes with a matching Xfwm4 theme with good resize grips and Fitts's Law -compliant upper corners when you maximize the window. The window manager theme suffers from some color errors for stuff newer than Debian 10's Xfwm 4.12 due to its transition into 4.14 and gtk3, but it's generally inoffensive. Can the bottom resize grips be made L-shaped, please? There are still a few rough edges with the GTK theme where things aren't styled that should be, and some slightly broken defaults with some of the sub-themes. It's more than made up for by the massive degree of configurability, and by a really active maintainer. I'm looking forward to the next release! I'd love a plank theme that styles like the Xfce panel :)
