Description:

Blended is a simple theme designed to blend in with the menu bar to create a smooth appearance.

The theme was designed with the Clearlooks GTK2 theme in mind, but works well with other themes that have plain menu bars.

Inculdes 4 theme variations:

Blended ( Top corners rounded)
BlendedDoubleRound (Top and bottom corners rounded)
BlendedSmall (Smaller window butons)
BlendedSmallDoubleRound

--------------NOTE--------------
If you want all 4 variations make sure they are all coppied to your themes folder as at least for me installing through theme preferences only installs the last theme.

I thought I might mention other potential changes that I'm considering for this theme.

1. Differentiating the utility windows, perhaps with a smaller title/buttons

2. Changing the look of the unfocused window, I might add in a lightened button tray so that it's clear where the buttons are.

Suggestions and feedback are welcome : )

I really like this theme. i would like it better if the bottom corners were rounded exactly like the top.

The default theme will stay the way it is (rounded:top, square:bottom), however for the next update (earliest next weekend) I will add that as an option.

I wanted the window widgets to be very clean that's why they are a fixed size, but I didn't know how many people used smaller font sizes to know if it was an issue. Including a smaller variant might not be the best option but that's what I've done for now. Just nake sure that Blended_small gets installed and you're all set. I checked it out with your screenshot and it should look fine with the small variant.
