Description:

This is an original theme created by me from scratch, vaguely inspired by a combination of pre-OSX Macintosh and the Amiga Workbench. I've been using it for a few years now, but this is the first time i'm releasing it publically.

Recommended Metacity button layout is Close on the left and Maximize and Minimize or Shade on the right. I never made proper buttons for Menu or any of the other Metacity 2.x buttons. If this is a problem, just drop me a line. :)

Right now I'm actually doing a similar metacity project, although it will be more like a Radiance meets Platinum than going full on retro.

I'm currently struggling with adding the shade button to the metacity-theme-1.xml
If I add <button function="shade" state="normal" draw_ops="whatever"> the theme breaks. I'll try checking your code, when I have time.

ps. Of course voted good ;)

Thank you! For the shade button, for what it's worth, you have to make a metacity-theme-2.xml instead of/in addition to the metacity-theme-1.xml file. Note that you'll have to make code for all the other new buttons (pin, stick, and i think a couple others) too.
