I think it could be related to the border thickness of the buttons.

You could use this trick, to change the clock applet font alone.

Ok. I found it. It's not related to any setting of the theme. It works alredy in every theme. Try to set a smaller font and a bigger panel.

For example:

I looked through all the gtrkrc, but I can't really find where this trick is done...
Do you know some other theme that do this? - Oct 02 2011

I'll try to figure it out in the gtkrc of Lambda Mod. I hope this is not related to some features in the newer versions of murrine. - Oct 01 2011

I was wrong with the expanders. It is possible to click them even outside the arrow icon. Making them 8 pixels size, like in Lambda-Mod, works normally.

I changed the ACTIVE colour status of the buttons. Now the selected task stands out better. Thank you, this was a good point.

Regarding the panel, maybe, I didn't understood what you mean. You can change the layout of the date applet with a trick in gconf-editor: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/10/how-to-customize-the-clock-applet-in-ubuntu/
In the Lambda-Mod screenshots, he uses a different panel, named Talika: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/finally-ubuntu-ppa-for-talika-gnome.html

You could also use a smaller font, but I prefer the classic Dejavu sans 10, for better readability.

Now I'll upload the new version with smaller arrows and more contrast on the selected buttons. ;-) - Oct 01 2011

If you download it again, you'll find the new version with GtkTreeView::expander-size = 12 ;) - Sep 30 2011

Thanks ;)

I just changed some lines in the metacity-theme-1.xml file. It was easy (Look at the original version and mine: there are very few changes). Most modern themes have that menu-titlebar unified look, which is very nice, but makes it hard to distinguish which window have the focus.

I just tried to change the GtkTreeView::expander-size from 14 pixels to 12. You are right. It looks better. But I think that smaller than this, would make it hard to click.
I don't know how to change it to the +/- icon... However, I prefer the arrows. :) - Sep 30 2011

I like it more than elementary. Now it's my theme of choice for my home and my work machine. :-)

I think it could be improved more:
- index.theme has elementary as default icon set, while it should be elementary-mono-dark
- in the nautilus tab bar, it's hard to see wich tab is in front. I think that using a white background for the front (like in the old version of elemntary) tab will solve the problem, and make it look very good
- sometimes it'hard to see which window is in front. this is a common problem in all the themes with uniform metacity-gtk colors... finding a good solution would be great. for now, making the metacity buttons of the background windows different (maybe flat and same color of the background window text? or 50% transparent?) could be a nice temporary solution. - Dec 28 2010

attento! adesso salterà fuori qualcuno a dirti "Hegel??? Per colpa sua sono morte milioni di persone sotto il regime nazista!!" :-D

neppure con Platone saresti al sicuro, a causa della sua "Repubblica"... certamente ispirazione di qualunque regime totalitario. :-P - Aug 21 2010
