Description:

Wave GTK theme is inspired with google wave interface, and this is my take to bring it to GTK. Theme needs pixbuf engine, so make sure you have that installed.Theme comes with two different Metacity theme, default one on screenshot1, and rounded on screenshot2.

Please try the theme before you decide to vote, and I would appreciate constructive criticism , comments and suggestions.

Enjoy

In this realese version changes are as follows: Metacity theme from 3rd screenhot now is default Metacity theme,to give you guys better experience.Also Inactive window now has different color for easier recognition of active and inactive windows, if text in inactive window is not redable enough, I can change it.Two extra Meatcity theme are in tarball and renamed to WaveClassic, and WaveRounded.Next of the changes are scrollbars, they still have tin style,( I like scrollbars unobtrusive and there when you need them).Now they are more visible with blue color.

Hello, very nice theme but I'm looking for these funds and can not find. I think it would be easier to ask the link to them or if you can upload one server. Thank

Nice job, although I think your Metacity or Emerald theme would make more sense if the minimize icon was bottom-aligned with the other two buttons instead of top-aligned. In other words, I think that line should be horizontally aligned with the bottom and not the top of the maximize and close buttons. But then again, this may be just perfect as it is for someone who prefers to have their tasklist on top, who knows? But I personally prefer to have a single panel at the bottom, and so that's what I'd do if it were me. Just sayin'...

Theme are inspired with google wave interface, hence metacity minimize button aligned at the top, i can add one more metacity with minimize button aligned at the bottom, but not before tomorrow.

Very well established gtk style. Your work is very good. Now is my basic style of the desktop. Very good in small details. Have my long applause.

This is a wonderful theme, but I'm having issues with the GTK theme. Whenever I add the theme (even after commenting out the areas perscribed to be commented out if you don't want a themed panel or fooling around with the panel files) and change the panel background, I get the Applications/Places/System, Banshee, and logout icons all having the default panel background instead of the one I want to use.

I'm not adept at theming per say... anything I can do? It's the one thing keeping me from using this theme.

Try changing the color of your panel to much the background, rather then loading panel background.

How do you mean?

The thing is that I want a very different panel background and really the bright one doesn't suit me.

To accommodate your request, I have to change code for the menubar in gtkrc. Downside of this change that fonts will stay black when selecting items in menu, instead of changing color to white.Before release i was thinking about this, and decided, not to do that, also theme should reflect google wave interface, so light color panel is good option.
I am sorry for the inconvenience that my decision may cause you.

This is great. Do you think you could make a vesion with normal scrollbars, though? I can't seem to do it myself, meh. :/

Can you show me picture of what exactly, you would like to have as normal scrollbars, and I can include it in the next theme update.

I was thinking of something like the progress bars. I'm not much of a themer, but I think it'd add a nice touch.

It is a cool peace of software, that you can skin, and uses very little of panel space.

the theme is very nice, but when you have a large screen with a lot of windows open it's hard to see which one is on the first plan because de bars are the same color, you should have the frontmost windows highlighted in some way, maybe by taking out the color of the backgroud windows bars.

Thanks so much for adding the version of wave buttons i asked for! :D

I'd love to know where you got the clock theme from? It's spot on! I tried making one myself but couldn't find the right hands for it (i still uploaded it here though).

And that panel is GORGEOUS...
