As i saw everybody welcomed the drop of the gradient menubars they didnt
look so professional IMO.. but if you stick to them, of course you can
the code for metacity is:
<gradient type="vertical" x="0" y="0" width="width+9" height="height+1">
<color value="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/0.28" />
<color value="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/0.26" />
<color value="shade/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/0.25" />
you may wanna change the "<color value="shade/gtk:bg[SELECTED]/0.5"/>"
line and increase the shade since this is for my different selected
color which is: #FFBD61.
and i still suggest to drop the gradient menubar. :)
