#2 Go back to 0.5 Gui Look


I would like to request the old Gui Look back. The new
one doesn't look right anymore. It doesn't change with
my styles and color-schemes anymore because of the
new look :-(.

I would at least ask to have an option if anything so I can
turn that look off.. personally its ugly... Im not much of
one for bright colors and crystal looks.. bleh!! ;-)

Anyways, I love the metabar and have found it seriously
usefull in things I personally do. Sadly, I had to go back
to 0.5 and loose out on the new cool added stuff
because the new gui look is just awfull.

    I don't know exactly what you mean with 'It doesn't change with
    my styles and color-schemes'.
    Of course the look is style independent, but follows
    color-schemes (at least it does on my computer ;)
    So if you don't have a crystal looking desktop with let's
    say a dark color scheme metabar should be dark, too. Only
    the arrows are still in crystal style but I will change them
    to follow the current icon set to give metabar a more
    consistent look.

    The reason for choosing this look was of course my own
    decision and there a also a lot of people liking the new
    style. Furthermore I chose it for space reasons. The old
    style wasted to much of it.
    But I'm thinking of a further redesign that uses the
    current widget sytle to do some nice drawings and still
    saving space.

    For 0.7 you can expect a new design ... again :)
    It is my favourite of all 3 styles (the old, the current and
    the new)
    It has the buttons of the old style but not its ugly
    frameborders. And it has some nice fading lines as
    separators. I have attached a ppreview image.
