As you may (or may not) know yet, xfwm4 4.4 supports a wide range of
image formats, including SVG as long as the underlying gdk-pixbuf loader
supports it (ie you have librsvg installed).
It took me a long time but I finally came out with some SVG theme for xfwm4.
You can grab it here:
- Theme: http://www.foo-projects.org/~olivier/themes/Xfwm4-Kokodi-4.tar.bz2
Now the question is, should I switch to this for default 4.4 theme?
Q: What if someone doesn't have librsvg installed?
A: The theme features PNG as fallback if SVG is not supported
Q: The PNG theme doesn't look exactly the same as the SCG one
A: Yes, I know, it seems inkscape doesn't render the SVG exactly the
same as librsvg.
Q: Do you plan to convert all existing themes to SVG?
A: Definitely not! It took me a lot of work to make this theme, and I
can't do that for all existing themes...
Q: Why not converting the current default theme to SVG then?
A: See previous answer.
Q: But anyway, what's wrong with current default?
A: Nothing's wrong, it looks a bit too much like Clearlooks Metacity
theme maybe, but that's not intended since the current default theme is
derived from my theme Just4fun  I released a while back in may '05.
So, opinion, anyone?
