I like this theme, except I'm not quite happy with the sliders and scrollbars.
How would I make the slider handles bigger? Does Aurora also support clearlooks or oxygen like arrows?

Thank you!
You may enlarge them by setting the values of:
And you may notice that handles will appear on those sliders/scrollbars.
As for arrows, however, they cannot be changed, unless you don't use aurora for the scrollbars.

Does the engine support kind of alternative styles for sliders and scrollbars? Like circle sliders for example? Can handles be turned on or off like in Murrine? How can the scrollbar background be controlled? Although I like Murrine themes, Aurora seems to be something I like most. Except the absence of documentation. I'm new to gtkrc files though. I decided to ask you because you seem to know what you're doing.

Nope, handles only. And you cannot turn it on or off except exploiting those so called "bugs" - just like the way I did.

As for the scrollbar bg, you may change the colors of bg[NORMAL], bg[ACTIVE] and bg[PRELIGHT].

 Is this it?

Is this really the best GTK 2.x on Gnome?
I love the Aurora engine but this theme
is mediocre at best.

I suspect this user is not playing fair.

Then find it out.
It might not be the best here, but I will never cheat, it's meaningless.
And to be honest, the voting system is not good enough, although the admin did something, such as only the registered users are allowed to vote.
Anyway, it's free, free to use, free to comment, free to vote. If you don't like it, vote it down, and leave a suggestion if you like.
