With every theme being mostly transparent and/or flashy gradients, your theme is a refreshing change.

A bit sad, that it isn't upvoted more. - Feb 10 2012

As ugly as 84 individual pixmaps? That are only tileable, not stretchable? ;-)

<rant>
I really don't feel the people responsible for Metacity and Xfwm (and Gtk) had themers (as opposed to themeing) in mind, when they added themeing support. Why is the easy stuff (from a themers perspective) so hopelessly complicated and more interesting stuff impossible?

Metacity has better support for pixmap themes than Xfwm and pixmap themes are all Xfwm can do. You just have to know how ;-P

Anyway, great theme. The best and technically most complete Gtk pixmap theme I have seen so far. Though I find it to bright and I don't like the (excessive as usual, for GTK) spacing. And I'm not such a fan of Windows or other OSs theme ports, but I like this one. x-D

Thanks! - Aug 27 2009

Very nice and subtle use of gradients. Also like the buttons and their icons, especially the shadow effect. They scale pretty well with the font size, even at ridiculously large or small font sizes. And a very often overlooked detail, the buttons on a maximized window actually go all the way to the screen corner.

With the "Splint" sub-theme, shaded windows look good as well, I didn't really expected otherwise, as the title bar already is already design-wise separated. For the others, unfortunately, shaded windows don't look quite that polished. There are "gaps" where the window frame would normally continue. But really I'm just nitpicking here ;)

All sub-themes pick up the colors of your Gtk theme and also work pretty well with darker themes. The title text color is "hard coded" to white, so the text-with-border effect works even for those themes that have a light background, dark text color for selected elements.

I find them all to be very useable, very unobstrusive without being bland. They all fall right into the style of other Tango-ish Metacity themes, very similar to the Clearlooks variations that ship with the latest Ubuntu. The only wish I have is for a rectangular version, as I personally don't like the rather large radius used by Metacity for rounding window corners.

If I could give a rating, it would be a 8/10. Nice work, thank you for sharing!

(Out of curiosity, which way did the evolution of these themes go, back to front or reverse?) - Mar 10 2009

In case anyone is wondering, the GTK theme is ClearLUX (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ClearLUX?content=94004) by paraboy. Very lovely dark, yet usable theme! - Feb 11 2009

Thanks, glad you like it!

I actually based this on a gtkrc created by the "Colorize GTK" option of KDE 3.5. Have been tweaking it for quite some time, though.

While I don't like XP's Luna theme as a whole, I do like the gentle, yet distinct colors of it. I find them easy on the eyes and non-distractive, perfect for a work desktop. - Feb 09 2009
Thank you, glad you like it. :-)

I also made a left-handed version of BeSimple, BeSimple-Leftish: http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php?content=99085

Thanks for your comment!

Unfortunately, my graphics card's driver isn't stable enough to run compiz (Nvidia Legacy, old GeForce 2 Ti), so I won't be making an Emerald theme of that window decoration :-(

Thank you!

Drop me a comment and let me know what you made from this, in case I miss the submission. ;-)

Oh, and love your signature! :-D
