Description:

A Redmond Win9x clone

-To install: extract Redmond97.tar.gz into your themes directory.

-Note: The following applets should be used for xfce4 panel to look correct with the frame hack:
Notification Area followed by Orage Panel Clock. Right click on the notification tray and select properties. Uncheck "show frame". (GTK2 or GTK3 panel)
GTK3 only: System tray followed by orage clock or xfce4 clock applet.


Now with updated IE style Firefox themes.
-To use the Firefox theme (IE_classic_firefox.tar.gz):
1. Create a directory named chrome inside of your Firefox profile directory (eg ~/.mozilla/firefox/user.default/chrome
2. Choose and extract the desired Firefox theme into the chrome directoy.

Known issues:
-The Firefox themes are currently colored for the default Redmond color scheme.
I'm currently designing a script that applies the selected GTK3 color scheme to the Firefox theme and installs it.
-There is a slight gap between the notification tray and orage clock tray frames. (Does not affect gtk3 xfce4 clock)
-If you don't uncheck the "show frame" option for the notification tray the borders will be misaligned.
-LibreOffice: Scrollbar arrows do not match theme scrollbar arrows. I'm still actively troubleshooting this.
-LibreOffice: Some combobox text covers the combo button, currently working on some workarounds as LibreOffice ignores padding.

Well done!
The color is also less greenish than the original and more pleasing IMO.

That's the plan. Just applying some finishing touches before I release the script, it should be released soon.

I love the theme builder, I already made themes based on some of the main color of some popular distro logos. "Debian Red" "Arch Blue" and "Ubuntu Orange".

Awesome glad to hear it's working good. Would love to see some screenshots, if you want I could include some of your custom distro themes with the official theme package.

Here's a few Screenshots of each theme:

Arch Blue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n9605ojun7cy548/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-20-16.png?dl=0

Debian Red: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i91blibd7wkvun0/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-20-51.png?dl=0

Ubuntu Orange: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k5f7u2iabkmjbcg/Screenshot_2019-08-06_15-21-39.png?dl=0

And when windows are deselected they have a bit of a darker color to the decorations, like in the pictures. When they are selected the colors are a bit brighter.

Please, please keep updating this. I've been searching for a Windows theme for a while. Do you think you could do something similar to Windows 98 or 2000?

I was looking into creating the Win98 / Win2000 style titlebar with the gradient colors however left to right color gradients in xfce4wm doesn't seem possible at the moment. I'm currently looking into supporting IceWM also as it is already possible with that WM.

MATE supports gradients in the title bar, so I'd highly recommend trying that out, though they already have a theme with that. Downside of MATE is that the panel renders with no borders unless you do some CSS trickery that I don't understand. Only theme I've seen retain borders in the panel for MATE is Chicago95.
