Description:

A theme inspired by the WindowMaker/GNUStep look. I made it to match my QTStep QtCurve theme, since QtCurve window decorations seem to be dead.
As aurorae doesn't have proper color scheme support, i made several color variants, and i included the 'source' version, which contains a script to generate new variants based on a KDE color scheme.

Do you think you can manage to make a Qstep theme for openbox?

i'll look into it, but from what i remember, openbox cannot be themed freely - only a limited set of gradients and boxes and such.
but if you need something more lightweight than kwin/aurorae, you could try the xfwm4 QTStep theme.

Yes, I'm already with kwin/aurorae and I like it, but I have too mane useless dependencies.
Fluxbo should support pixmap images, like xfwm4, what do you think?

I answer myself, they are the default widgets of Lxpanel.
Impressive!

Excellent theme - subtle and complete. I'm using one of the red variants and it's really nice to have the choice of several colors.

or, alternatively, just extract the files to the aurorae themes folder
on my system, that is ~/.local/share/aurorae/themes

9 Good looking, clean and solid. I prefer this kind of design over material design and over-the-top transparency design.

Its really good, thanks alot for your work.
But when you said that you work on a theme which will match that oldish look i had in my head something like this: https://pp.userapi.com/c837438/v837438170/3696d/_lknqazFY7A.jpg (it is CDE from solaris)
