First of all, great work on Murrine.

I'm running Ubuntu Edgy and Murrine 0.13. I'm not sure if it's Edgy or the most recent version of Murrine that's causing it, but no matter which style I use, or how I configure the theme, the buttons and menu items refuse to use rounded edges.

Thanks. - Oct 02 2006

You're very welcome. I've never themed Gnome before, but I used CSS to theme the website that I've been working on - and it's the same basic idea. You can see my work in progress at - please let me know what YOU think of my theming and graphic abilities.

Greetings from beautiful British Columbia, Canada! - Jun 28 2006

Almond just gets better and better.

I noticed that with the borders now set to 4 pixels, the shaded title bar shifts in size when the window is "rolled-up".

The fix is to set the left and right border for the shaded windows to the same width as the standard window.


distance name="left_width" value="4"
distance name="right_width" value="4"
distance name="bottom_height" value="0"

Great work, Simzer! - Jun 27 2006

Thanks for the quick reply. I usually go with a border-size of 5 pixels. As an alternative to the icons included with the Sloth theme, the icons packaged with any of the Candido themes are also in keeping with the idea of simplicity with a touch of flair.

Cheers! - Jun 23 2006

Edit for clarification: The one pixel shifting problems is only apparent on dark backgrounds. On light backgrounds it looks pixel-perfect. - Jun 21 2006

First of all, this is my favorite metacity theme. I especialy like the gradient in the menu bar - it gives it added dimension. I do edit the xml file to increase the border width as I have a hard time grabbing tiny borders. This is easy enough to fix, though, so may not require a wide-border version.
What I would love, however, is an alternate set of icons. I have always loved the icons on this otherwise very dated theme:

Much more sophisticated than underscore, box, X.

Any chance of that happening?

One last note: because of the shading, the close (x) button appears to be shifted one pixel to the left of the right border.

Keep up the great work, and thanks. - Jun 21 2006
