And I picked the background color from your screenshot, it is #d4d4d4, the menubar is slimmer than the latest one, the scrollbar color is white... your gtkrc must be made around 05/19 according to my changelog. So I am pretty sure you have to replace it.

But your screenshot shows that the scrollbar is white rather than blue, so I guess the gtkrc is not the latest one.
Please rm this file and replace it with the latest gtkrc, change your theme to anything else via Appearance Preference and then change it back.

I was wondering, why is the animation from right to left, instead of left to right, such as for file transfert?

I guess it should have something to do with the source. You may contact ECHM for more information.

Great theme, my default for office&home desktops, only one issue, the "New" button in Evolution shows weird for me...
Keep up the good work!

Oh, I found this, you need a little hack to fix it.
Just add:

widget_class "*Panel*GtkToggleButton*" style "panelbuttons"

style "clearlooks-evo-new-button-workaround"
{
engine "clearlooks"
{
toolbarstyle = 0
}
}
widget_class "EShellWindow.GtkVBox.BonoboDock.BonoboDockBand.BonoboDockItem*" style "clearlooks-evo-new-button-workaround"

to the bottom of your gtkrc.

I'll update my archive soon.

Sorry, the line:
widget_class "*Panel*GtkToggleButton*" style "panelbuttons"
is not needed.

So glad you like it!
As for evolution, I removed related codes since I never use it, so I guess it might be an issue for some people.
I will fix that in my next release.

May I ask does this New button seem not on the same toolbar/same background like other buttons?
If that's the case, I'm afraid it won't be fixed unless I use other gtk-engine which is the last thing I'd like to do. I'm so sorry.

Can you make us a righty version of the border included and tell us font, style and size used please? I'd like to have look just the same here.

The border? Do you mean emerald theme or dock? If you mean dock/gnome-panel, I can upload it later. The font I choose is DejaVu Sans Mono-11.

I was speaking about the Emerald theme !! :)

OK, I see. The thing is, you just need to choose this Eternal Mod theme enclosed in my pkg in your Emerald Theme Manager, then change the title font to DejaVu Sans Mono-11, and that's it.

Thank yo for telling me the font used and sized! :) I was also asking if the button layout for the border/emerald could be like Windows ??

Paste the following string to the layout box:
U:IT:N(7)X(7)C:Normal Layout

Good luck:)

It's easy to change button layout via Emerald Theme Manager->Title Bar->layout->Normal Layout.
