Description:

This is an original theme created by me from scratch, vaguely inspired by a combination of pre-OSX Macintosh and the Amiga Workbench. I've been using it for a few years now, but this is the first time i'm releasing it publically.

Recommended Metacity button layout is Close on the left and Maximize and Minimize or Shade on the right. I never made proper buttons for Menu or any of the other Metacity 2.x buttons. If this is a problem, just drop me a line. :)

0.1.1 -- Made stripes go all across untitled windows' titlebar
Gave utility windows titlebars (non-compiz only)
Tweaked colored gradient on titlebar.
Stripes won't clobber text on windows with very long titles.
Learned to hate Compiz's gtk-window-decorator.

Right now I'm actually doing a similar metacity project, although it will be more like a Radiance meets Platinum than going full on retro.

I'm currently struggling with adding the shade button to the metacity-theme-1.xml
If I add <button function="shade" state="normal" draw_ops="whatever"> the theme breaks. I'll try checking your code, when I have time.

ps. Of course voted good ;)

Thank you! For the shade button, for what it's worth, you have to make a metacity-theme-2.xml instead of/in addition to the metacity-theme-1.xml file. Note that you'll have to make code for all the other new buttons (pin, stick, and i think a couple others) too.
