I'm not exactly sure, but I believe that's an Emerald theme with a name like "Capuccino." I might be wrong, I haven't used Emerald/compiz in months.

well...murrine is a gtk engine, not a theme. plus i'm looking for the theme for the window border (i.e. the close, minimize, maximize button stuff), as i stated in the original post. thanks though.

Since the image is hosted at gnome-look, I suggest you just start combing through the themes:

Here it is:

Took me a few seconds to find. Google really is your friend. There is an included metacity theme that is presumably the window manager theme used in the screenshot. :D

Whoa, how is GTK transparent in that screenshot? (I know it is not compiz, because other elements are solid)

It uses Murrine (A GTK engine)

I believe that is a Linux Mint theme called Cassandra with different borders.

I got that, but I can't get it to work... they stay solid.

EDIT: I should say I have installed Murrina configurator, but the configurator shows no themes. (I know i have several murinna themes installed)... any ideas?

I don't think Murrine modifies the window borders.

That's all done with emerald and compiz.

Murrine is more of a control themer, I think? I'm confused on it as well lol


By the way, the themes go into the .themes folder. I had to install them manually.

BTW LOW SKY, DO YOU KNOW WHAT EMERALD THEME IT IS HE'S ASKING FOR IN THE PICTURE?

Um... not what I meant.
Yes, I know about and use emerald daily. Great decorator. What I am referring to is how GTK elements are also transparent in that screenshot, like Vista.

^Yeah, the transparent controls caught my eye too.
A quote from Cimi's Murrine page on gnome-look:
The Future:
A transparent version (like Vista but faster and nicer ;) ) is under development!

So looks like we have to wait to get it.

The screenshot is originally from here:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=42755

However, I cannot figure out what specific theme it is. And as for the transparent effects, I guess it's something Cimi is working on. I didn't even know he was working on something like that. Now I can't wait!

alright. there were a couple misunderstands and some tangents in this thread, but i finally got what i wanted (the window buttons to look like the ones in my OP, i.e. the minimize, maximize and exit buttons)

steps:

1) enable compiz fusion effects (system > preferences > appearance > visual effects tab > normal)
2) install emarald theme manager (apt-get install emerald)
3) install the compiz fusion icon (apt-get install fusion-icon)
4) run the fusion icon which lets your quickly change compiz and window manager settings. right click the icon and set emerald as your window decorator.

done-- enjoy!
