However, since I liked the old style pretty much I decided to split this version into “Mirav2” (see the screenshot). The only difference to the normal Mira are the bars, the inputbox style and the window borders (the Mirav2 Emerald/Metacity looks pretty nice with the normal Mira-gtk as well).
This time I wanted to create a darker theme with a pixmap bg. Further all control-elements (buttons, scrollbars… etc) should be transparent.
To create this overlay effect and getting it displayed correctly wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be and this may cause problems. This makes the theme pretty experimental as well… 🙂
