Reza's Unified IceWM Theme

This is an IceWM window decoration/theme I made a few months back. Being my first production theme, it took me a few days to make it, but I've been using it since then.

My goal was to make a simple, useful, professional and fast desktop. The window buttons disappear on inactive windows as you don't really need them. With "focus follows mouse" enabled this creates a really uncluttered look.

Of course, this theme would be useless without the corresponding Gnome and KDE themes. For a unified look, you can use GTK (Gnome) 3000_xeno, xeno_Discrete or Sunshine GTK theme and KDE's Light Style (2nd or 3rd revision).

I think there are some settings that I may have forgotten (like the colour of the logout window in IceWM.)

Let me know what you think and I'll try to polish it some more.

for me, uncluttered is a quite flattened
desktop on anything that is not active
, everything else look quite in order

and even an active window should not bubble
up so much, it looks strange having a bump
on the top

well, that is all, hoping you still got
chance to fix it
