Work in progress... by SkiesOfAzel Work in progress... by SkiesOfAzel
So here is what i am working right now. You can see the new panel, metacity decorator and the new styles for tabs and scrollbars. I've also fixed allot of bugs and now support nautilus vanilla as well :). You will be able to easily switch between the different styles provided or select per application settings through a GUI configurator. The next update will come when said configurator is ready.

In the future i intend to add a dark panel and options for alternative or no gradients at all.

As always, comments and suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

You can find the older version here.

It's a theme for the Gnome Desktop, i don't know if it's eligible for that kind of a contest. I am glad you like it though :)

imho that dark line in the scrollbars is a bit too intense, it's drawing my attention even on the screenshot. maybe smoothen it out a bit and see how that goes? (you can keep the relief-effect)

I completely replaced them with something more minimalistic (8 pixels wide)and less distracting. I always have trouble with scrollbars as they tend to use too much space for what they do (indicate the current place inside the window).

Thank you for your input :).

I'm liking the look of this so far, but I do fear that it is already in danger of being a bit too "Elementary". Perhaps experiment with a different selection colour... a bright blue, or green, perhaps?

Also, I assume you've yet to skin the Metacity/Emerald theme? Here's something I'd love to see IRL: [link]

A possible avenue of exploration, at least...

This started as a modification of "Elementary" so it's no wonder it shares some similarities. With that said, the widgets will look very, very different, and the theme will share more with Azel or even Oxygen than Elementary. The blue color will probably stay, as i prefer the use of classic colors for familiarity, but i may experiment on the tone. Still, there will also be dark brown highlights (like the gedit tabs) but my main goal is to make it as smooth/low contrast as possible.

I have very specific plans for the metacity theme, i am hoping to produce something really special, but i am saving it for last, so it may take awhile.

Thanks for your comments and suggestions !

I had some very elaborate plans for the decorator, but when i tried them in practice i realized they would be problematic with different button placements and other special situations. I also really didn't want to include 2 different decorators to solve them like i did with Azel, so i started feeling kind o desperate :P. Then i remembered the shadow style i used for Azel and i thought what the heck, let's give it a try. The result isn't as flashy, but it's very simple, usable and easy to customize. Besides, god knows, Orta is gimmicky enough already ;).
