Description:

A theme for xfwm4 originally inspired by DarkGrey:

http://www.xfce-look.org/content/show.php/DarkGrey?content=87657

I've replace the buttons with icons from the Tango and UbuntuStudio icon themes.

The border now has a little bit of gloss and picks up the GTK color to blend smoothly into the client area.

The text color of the title will not be well visible when using dark themes.

Also included in the download are the source images I made.

Ignoring boring affairs with license, it's a good idea to use Tango icons as border buttons. But same border looks bad. Try these icons on other border.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "same border". If you just don't like the border I based this on: I'm working on a new border that will also pick up the GTK color. If you want to see more colors and a visual clue to discern active and inactive borders, I probably won't do that, because I want no seams between the client area of the window and the decoration.

... but check for the licensing it as GPL.

Afaik, the tango icons are released under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license (one of the reasons, why I used the gnome iconset instead of tango as base for my seamonkey theme)

btw. GPL and CC_SA seems to be problematic anyway --> http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/tango-artists/2005-November/000045.html).

So could I release it under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, if the original theme was GPLed ?

I wonder... GPL vs. CC-SA is a tricky ground. Some say it's problematic. CC-Sa is definitely not being considered as DFSG free.

As I said, I decided to be on the safe side and and used the default gnome iconset, which is afaik LGPL and uses tango style as well... and already payed by being voted down here on xfce-look because of the term GNOME I guess *sigh*.

Another idea is to use the "old" Gnome Stock items, which were more tango-like, green arrows, blue plus... --> http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/show.php?content=84687

You could also ask the original author to relicense/dual license.

hope it helped,
