Could you work a bit on gtk2 to make it more similar? For example scrollbars or roundness (buttons have little bigger roundness in gtk).

Anyway great job ;)

It's my favorite

Metacity is very nice but empty button can be confusing for many people.
An alternative with buttons similar to radiance or elementary metacity will be welcome.

Thanks you for this work

Someone has done some work to port your work into xfce, maybe you can talk with him and include this in the official theme.

I think the metacity/mutter theme is different than the original. So I cannot include it.

Really nice theme dude!

I'm using it right now. But since the last release, Libreoffice menubar don't look like all the other app, and I was wondering if you can fix it.

Thanks for your work!

I am aware of the issue. But LibreOffice is not native GTK. And I don't know any fix for this behavior. Even the Official Radiance theme has this issue.

Nice work.

But when I saw "Orion" I got excited thinking it would be a beautiful dark theme. lol

I dunno.. "Orion" just feels like it should be a dark and vibrant theme.

Grrr!! lol

Ah, yes, you're right. I hadn't set Chrome to use the GTK theme. Thanks.
