Hi folks,

I have been up to a new GTK theme and Metacity, hope you like it.

This theme is fully colour-configurable, so you are encouraged to change the colours and match them with your distribution / tastes. It also works with the globalmenu applet, which I am using at the moment.

In addition, some parts can be configured editing the beginning of the gtkrc (all the instructions are provided inside the file).

So far:
- Scrollbar buttons order: default or mac style
- Scrollbars: three different styles (Murrine, Pixmap, Aurora)
- Toolbar: with or without gradient
- Menubar: with or without gradient
- Panel: normal, dark, with picture gradient or alpha gradient
- Tabs: four different styles (Murrine, Clearlooks, Clearlooks-dark Aurora)

To do:
- Gradients on the whole window
- Pixmap Tabs

The theme is fully based on Murrine SVN Engine.
If selected, it uses the pixmap engine for the scrollbars and toolbars, but this can be easily avoided and set back to the murrine engine editing the beginning of the gtkrc file.

For better results, install this theme as root (In Ubuntu, that means unpacking the archive in usr/share/themes with root privileges: for instance, you can open a terminal and type "sudo nautilus" to obtain a file manager with root privileges).

- Neil J. Patel, for making the mockup (desktopsearch2) who gave me inspiration ("Neil" --> "lieN").
- Cimi, for making the Murrine SVN engine and the Murrine Candido theme, which was my basis (I did not make this theme from green field).
- needcoffee, whose Innocent theme gave me the basis for the Metacity theme and the panel settings in the GTK theme.
- Kimik, whose Sauerstoff2 theme gave me the basis for the scrollbars

# All suggestions are more than welcome, in particular before voting bad!


## 1.2
Various changes, basically:
- new gradients
- new toolbars

## 1.01
New tabs and slight tuning of parameters

Fantastic theme, Thankyou. Just for your records, I prefer your alternative Conte Metacity with this. It looks the business!

My thanks again. Hope to see this moving up the ratings.
