    Need help with Metacity/GTK2 or someone to colaborate with

    I have designed a proposed theme mockup for Intrepid, and I need some help making it a reality; I have never designed a Metacity or GTK theme before.

    If someone could point me to some good guides, specifically I do need guides relating to using the colour selections in the Appearance panel (as my theme's colours are to be defined off of this). I've had a little look at Metacity themeing, and this guide: http://developer.gnome.org/doc/tutor...ty-themes.html

    I also need guides on GTK Engines, I am completely lost here for this one.

    If anyone things this is a serious mountain to climb, and has the experience to step in and collaborate in making the theme engine with me, then I would greatly appreciate this.

    For reference, this is the theme mockup I created.

    im far from the worlds greatest themer, ive made a couple of metacity and GTK themes tho, metacity themes are relatively easy to produce, im afraid ive got no idea on makeing a GTk engine though

    for the metacity your looking at pixmaps, check out the attached GT4 metacity theme and look at the metacity-theme-1.xml file, then try changing the the png's
