Really nice theme ! Did not appear in my theme manager. Took me a while to work out I had to use "customise" and select the controls.

That's the wrongest way to hold a katana that I've ever seen. She managed to destroy what little leverage you still get while holding it backwards. But I like the way you put this together, and the idea behind it. I tend to think of oriental things in general as soothing and unobtrustive. I just think it should be lighter, because you have it at an akward half-brightness where things are harder to see.

Thanks Sam,

Many blurry eyed nights on this one.

Also, thanks for the heads up and the fix for the gimp ruler problem.

Confounds me why gtk3 does not use pixmap -pixbuf engine.
Without pixmap there is no art involved other than color book art.

Well, at least we have choice with Linux,
Just spent a few days drilling down removing gtk3 dependencies.
Had to completely remove all my gnome apps.
Yeah, openbox does not care what I run, it runs what I tell it.
Replaced gnome apps with xfce, lxde, kde and independents.
Had to rerun qt config a couple of times to flush the gtk3 settings out of my kde apps and vlc player.

Am now back with completely updated Arch and looking
good with gtk2 once again.

And all is right in my little world ;)

I pity you lol thats a lot of work to keep your desktop working the way you want it too.
No problem on the fix for gimpers, I might add some code to the gtk for some of the other prgrams that mess up the toolbar abit like libre office, I had to split the image in half then put the top on the bottom and the bottom on top because it centers it when you put stretch = false, its an easy fix for non stretchers but some programs just don't measure it the same all the way around for the toolbars this way, I'll go through all the programs I have and make a list and see if I can fix them to look better and see if I can grab the gtk2 bits for them.I'll post one with fixes for these when I get time to crawl through them all and make fixes so you can get it also if you like. Thats if you use non stretchers, if you don't then it's really no issue.
Ya I'm not looking forward to gtk3 either, still haven't looked into it much but I do like the fact it's using css now, I'm using lmde from mint and thanks to clem and the gang they stuck with the gtk2 so far, well until debian decides otherwise I guess, I'll start digging into gtk3 to see what it's limits are soon I guess, not looking forward to it.
