it's weird how this has become a relatively sane thing to want to do.
4 years ago if u said you wanted to install gnome2 (which is basically the same thing), it'd been scoffed at.
now though, i'm even making a note of this thread incase i want to do that. sounds great... if i want to try mate, i cant think of a better way.
that'd be especially cool if the crunchbang repo had some cool theme for it ready to go... ... it doesnt tho right?
^ If you mean Metacity themes, then I'd expect the answer is "no"...with a "but". (I don't know how Metacity themes work. If they use colors off of gtk2 and gtk+ themes the way xfwm themes do, there shouldn't be a problem.)
The MATE meta-package does include a bunch of themes, extra icon packs, wallpapers, controls etc. Too many really for my taste. Metacity is still there, just been re-named like most stuff, I believe it's called "Marco" now, it gets installed with everything else.
The GUI for changing everything is available by right-clicking anywhere on the desktop and choosing "Change desktop background". You can change controls and window borders, fonts, everything right there, even colors used in any theme. I'm using a special set of icons I stashed away that I like from another distro that I can't find in any repo anymore, they are called Oxy2-zen, icons from the old Oxygen theme but changed to be mostly black and gray, goes nicely with the #! colors already present.
