Styles for Fluxbox 0.9.x


I recently installed fluxbox 0.9.13. But none of those nice new things are working, since I have a style that isn't using these new things. Where do I download some styles that works nice?

http://themes.freshmeat.net has a ton of fluxbox styles ready to download. You could also learn the config and make your own if you have free time, it's not too difficult

Yes, but those styles are just for older version of fluxbox such as the 0.1.x series. They tend to not do anything about roundcorners, pixmaps, etc. Anyway, I made my own skin.

Did you find any other sites with styles (even if there aren't many) ? I'm interested in those too.

For those who have Gentoo, yes. But for the rest of us?

No, I just found sites with old skins, made for 0.1.x, you can find those just by doing a search with google. I even tried to search for specific skin entries but the only thing I found was guides to make your own new skins. So I did one, started out with a wallpaper from Chobits (Chii getting dressed) and here I am, with my new, nice skin.
You can find the skin on http://dreamland4.gotdns.org/~ephrac...719-195827.png

I am not done, thought I should add some pixmaps for those close/iconify/maximize buttons. I can't get them to work. I have several .xpm-files ready but they just won't change.

Code:
window.close.pixmap: ~/.fluxbox/buttons/close.xpm
That should be the correct syntax and the path is correct. Trouble, trouble..

I once had a theme that used round corners but I don't like it, it's not round-round I guess

Debian doesn't have any extra theme package except for the ones that are in the fluxbox package by default.

Yeah, I think they should add the black border to be around the corners to. Because that is missing right now, as you maybe saw on my screenshot.
