Metacity Theme

Submitted:  Jun 3 2007
Updated:  Jul 8 2007


This theme is a modified version of Lokha (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lokha?content=32108)

This is also my first submitted theme.

Here is the story. I like the looks of Vista's window borders, but I dont have a computer powerful enough to run Beryl or Compiz. I didnt care about transparencies or glowing stuff, I just wanted the close button to be big and easy to hit. Since every "Vista" theme for Metacity kept the buttons all the same size, I decided to try my hand at making it myself.

Here is my work. I call it Vokha (Vista+Lokha. haha...).

All I did was modify Lokha to stretch the buttons and make a few changes here and there. It still has 95% of the original Lokha code, but with some wider buttons. It also adapts with the GTK theme.

Enjoy, comment, vote!

Update: I've added a black theme and a blue theme that doesn't use GTK colors. if you want more colors, just comment! Also added a Green one, too!

*change max button when window is maximized
*no border when maximized
*something really cool (any ideas?)

feel free to give ideas!!!


*Beta Release!

*changed gradient in title bar.
*1.0 release!

*changed unfocused window (inverted gradient, no GTK colors)
*made text more readable

*added Black, and Blue.
*made icons in buttons transparent when pressed.

*Added Green theme.
*made X in close button always transparent.

*new prelight close button with light and slight transparency

*new min/max buttons with glow.
*added TODO to above description

(Vokha (All))

all I would change is the maximize button so that it changes to show whether the window is maximized or unmaximized.

i would love to, but i've never really messed with metacity before, so it might take some time.

any (simple) tutorial links would be greatly appreciated.

its not actually a dark theme. it uses the GTK colors, so if you have a dark GTK theme, it becomes dark.
