Description:

A Redmond Win9x clone

Update: Version 1.8 and above include a fork with support for client side decorations. If you are not using a plugin to disable GTK3
client side decorations such as GTK-NOCSD or GTK3-Classic, download the Redmond97-CSD.tar.gz package. If you currently use a plugin to disable GTK client side decorations download the official Redmond97.tar.gz package which styles the CSD titlebar like a toolbar.

-To install: extract Redmond97.tar.gz (or Redmond97-CSD.tar.gz) into your themes directory.

-Note: The following applets should be used for xfce4 panel to look correct with the frame hack:
GTK2: Notification Area followed by Orage Panel Clock. Right click on the notification tray and select properties. Uncheck "show frame". (GTK2 or GTK3 panel)
GTK3: System tray followed by orage clock or xfce4 clock applet.

Metacity-1 themes have been added for MATE desktop (includes gradient titlebars).
To get gradient titlebars in Xfce4 switch to a window manager that supports metacity-1 themes as horizontal gradients are not supported in Xfwm4.
I recommend marco which is included with MATE desktop. To switch to marco after it has been installed run "marco --replace". To switch themes in Xfce4
you will need to use the gsettings command if MATE is not installed. eg: gsettings set org.mate.Marco.general theme "Redmond97" .

Now with updated IE style Firefox themes.
-To use the Firefox theme (IE_classic_firefox.tar.gz):
1. Create a directory named chrome inside of your Firefox profile directory (eg ~/.mozilla/firefox/user.default/chrome
2. Choose and extract the desired Firefox theme into the chrome directoy.

Known issues:
-The Firefox themes are currently colored for the default Redmond color scheme.
-If you don't uncheck the "show frame" option for the notification tray the borders will be misaligned.
-LibreOffice: Scrollbar arrows do not match theme scrollbar arrows. I'm still actively troubleshooting this.
-LibreOffice: Some combobox text covers the combo button, currently working on some workarounds as LibreOffice ignores padding.
Last changelog:

1.8 2 months ago

Added support for GTK3 client side decorations for those not using gtk-nocsd or GTK3-classic.
To use the version with support for CSD, download the Redmond97-CSD package.
-CSD windows include shadows to match non gtk-csd applications.
-Updated hamburger menu styles.
-Fixed combobox buttons in editor toolbars used in Evolution and Abiword.

The color is also less greenish than the original and more pleasing IMO.

That's the plan. Just applying some finishing touches before I release the script, it should be released soon.

I love the theme builder, I already made themes based on some of the main color of some popular distro logos. "Debian Red" "Arch Blue" and "Ubuntu Orange".

Awesome glad to hear it's working good. Would love to see some screenshots, if you want I could include some of your custom distro themes with the official theme package.

Here's a few Screenshots of each theme:

Arch Blue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n9605ojun7cy548/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-20-16.png?dl=0

Debian Red: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i91blibd7wkvun0/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-20-51.png?dl=0

Ubuntu Orange: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k5f7u2iabkmjbcg/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-21-39.png?dl=0

And when windows are deselected they have a bit of a darker color to the decorations, like in the pictures. When they are selected the colors are a bit brighter.

Please, please keep updating this. I've been searching for a Windows theme for a while. Do you think you could do something similar to Windows 98 or 2000?

I was looking into creating the Win98 / Win2000 style titlebar with the gradient colors however left to right color gradients in xfce4wm doesn't seem possible at the moment. I'm currently looking into supporting IceWM also as it is already possible with that WM.

MATE supports gradients in the title bar, so I'd highly recommend trying that out, though they already have a theme with that. Downside of MATE is that the panel renders with no borders unless you do some CSS trickery that I don't understand. Only theme I've seen retain borders in the panel for MATE is Chicago95.
