ATTENTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I could not tie the reported issue with the maximize button showing opposite what it's supposed to -- "/" is displayed when the window is not maximized and "/" is displayed when the window is already maximized -- to the theme itself. This issue has been found to disappear entirely depending on the versions of software installed, so I suspect that may be the issue. This is not how the theme was designed. I apologize for any inconvenience and recommend updating to the latest versions of all packages to help resolve this issue.

NOTES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a revision/port of the Turquoise Nights Ob theme for Openbox which can be found here:
http://box-look.org/content/show.php/?content=120386

The Default-4.6 theme included with Xubuntu was also used as a base/example for the port to Xfwm.

I liked the original Turquoise Nights Ob theme but didn't like the prelight color and had some issues using Openbox with all programs so I decided to port it to Xfwm. I used the same buttons for close, maximize, and minimize. I created a new button for the stick button. I created the background for the borders of windows from scratch. I've additionally changed the prelight color to white.

DOWNLOAD CONTENTS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The download contains two themes: Lines and Lines-Dark. Lines the original theme has a small border that's just a bit lighter than black -- this is helpful when you have two windows side-by-side. Lines-Dark has fully black edges.

COMPATIBILITY
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The .tar.gz "source" file that is available for download is compatible with Xfce, should work regardless of which distribution you use (as long as you're using the Xfwm window manager), and was tested on Xubuntu 11.04. If you have any issues installing/using this Xfwm theme, please comment and let me know and I will correct it as soon as possible. Thank you!
