oh, don't get me wrong. i really like the ardour colour scheme. i'm just
playing around really. i think the clearlooks engine looks a little dated,
but it is certainly not something that worries me or puts me off. i was more
thinking of people who like their custom system theme to perhaps have an
option where ardour matches as close as possible. the main things that stuck
out were the faders (although i still think they need something to look a
little more interesting, but that is just me, not something i think that
should be pursued).

keep up the great work

home desktop applications. i'm sorry if thats not to your taste. i wouldpropose to you that its a different class of application that does notbenefit from the rather monochromatic approach that works well for
different classes of applications."just a flashing record button" is a long, long way from the necessitieslist. how can you tell when a region is selected? what is the differencebetween solo and solo-safe status? how to tell that a region gain line
is active or not? etc. etc. etc. its true that we overuse colors rightnow, and that needs to change.note that you can use the theme manager (Windows -> Theme Manager) toswitch to the "light" theme, which is much closer to the typical
graytone themes of most default toolkit themes.if people write more themes, and they are good, we'll be happy toinclude them with ardour.
