Some things look a load better than Divergence, but I am not fond of the panels; they look a bit too concave :)

Hope I'm not being too picky ^^

It's a great theme overall! What's the base of this one?

I'd also like to add that it's good to see that you tailor your themes for buttons on the left side of metacity.

I used to move them to the left long before Ubuntu did and have trouble finding good themes to match.

Thanks :D
and no, not being too picky! Constructive critique is always helpful.

Yeah I'm just used to the buttons on the left. It makes more sense to me to have the window controls near the menus. Plus the metacity is just the equinox-ambient metacity. I'm going to make an Emerald theme which fits a little tighter; metacity coding from scratch is a real pain that I can't be bothered with at the moment -- Emerald is just easier to work with.

The panel is just a solid colour at the moment. I'm kind of torn on the panels. If I use a pixmap, it means the panel cant be customised by the user with a custom image. There is an image in .zip to use as a custom panel (its made for 1280px wide screens but can easily be modified in gimp).

Its 100% Murrine engine. No pixmaps or other engines. I use Divergence-II as a base, which I wrote from scratch. I plan to make all the colours configurable. At the moment, the selected menu items take the tooltip colours. But I also want to make the menubar and menu colours configurable to use the "Input Boxes" colour, and instead set the input boxes to simply be a lighter shade of the "Window" colour.
