Thank you for this theme.

I've got a problem with window borders, they are black and it seems there is no bottom border.

Are you using desktop effects? Unfortunately, you have to have them enabled to see the borders and shadows correctly.

Thanks, as you said enabling desktop effects solved the problem :D

Unusable with hard-coded colors.

Forgive me, but what's a hard coded color?

Do you mean the decoration or the text? Aurorae doesn't allow for the application of color schemes. It's all hard-coded.

Really great theme, thanks!!!

But please have a look at my screenshot http://i.imagebanana.com/img/r7l87zzn/Auswahl_048.png! I don't see the shadow (is it because I don't use desktop effects?!)

And how can I place the close button to the left for example?

Yes, the shadow will depend on desktop effects being enabled. For the buttons, just click on 'Configure Buttons' and you can drag them around from the dialog.

They're doing an awesome job! I really, really wish that qtcurve and aurorae were flexible enough to mirror these changes, but sadly it just can't happen with the way it is now. You'd have to be able to use pixmaps and make detailed changes to margins, amongst other things. I'll keep my eye on these changes and implement them as I'm allowed.

Do you know if those features are contemplated in the roadmap for qtcurve and aurorae? I can file two separate request to add the needed features.

Hi!
I's very difficult to find the right pixels to resize windows, can you check that?

Also an option to alter the drop shadows would be nice, I while I like some shadow bordering the windows I would like to make it a bit tiny.

Cheers,
-Martin

We're stuck with the current version for now. :) I will do an update if they add the much needed support for a window resize handle, but for now my only choice is to make the window borders bigger, which kills the beauty of the theme to me. Support for configurable shadows is broken in Aurorae, too.

In other words: it's "form over function", for now. ;)

Thanks. The theme is just a qtcurve that I modified to look like the Elementary gtk theme.

Hi. Can you release the theme you mentioned? I would like to try if it looks better than the other QtCurve elementary-style themes.
