On a side note, one thing I always thought really sensible is
that they always use a different Window Decoration than the
Oxygen one. The Oxygen one looks fine until you use Firefox,
Thunderbird or a few other apps; then the lack of gradient on
the background makes the decoration look very ugly... part of
why I'm quite fond of QtCurve. Though setting QtCurve as
default is generally regarded as not an option since it does
not perform as efficiently as Oxygen.

Prefer to fix this on the Firefox side:


For my self the "oxygen-gtk" gtk-theme does a satisfying job, but
uses more cpu-cycles than acceptable on a mobile (netbook/laptop).

If power consumption is the main decider, "Oxygen-Molecule" does
the job, but doesn't look as nice as "oxygen-gtk".

I haven't tested / used QtCurve since 11.2 came out (Versions
qtcurve-kde4-0.67.6-3.2 / qtcurve-gtk2-0.68.0-2.2).

Has it gotten better since in terms of cpu-cycles? It was something
of a cpu-hog / power-drain then.

And what about the shadows-disaster in some of the newer versions,
has that been cleared yet? Or at least made a option to disable?

If I look at for QtCurve
I see:
qtcurve-gtk2-1.2.0-1.10 / qtcurve-kde4-1.2.0-1.13 (OSS_11.3)

qtcurve-gtk2-1.8.1-3.1 / qtcurve-kde4-1.8.4-3.1 (OSS_11.4)

qtcurve-gtk2-1.8.9-36.7 and qtcurve-gtk2-1.2.0-17.1 (GNOME:Apps/Factory)

qtcurve-kde4-1.8.7-3.3 (KDE:Release:47/Factory)

Huh? what version to use? What do you use ?

Seeking clarity, Yamaban.
