I'm Andrea Cimitan (aka Cimi), a gnome themer from Italy. :)
Probably you had known my name in gnomelook.org, there I'm Cimi86, and
I've created a lot of themes like Murrine GTK2 Cairo Engine
http://cimi.netsons.org/pages/murrine.php) and Candido Themes.
I was thinking about a new proposal for Fedora Core GTK look.
Do you know that Ubuntu has "Ubuntulooks" as default theme engine, so I
thought "Why Fedora couldn't have Murrine?".
Feedbacks on gnomelook.org and polls on Ubuntu Forums hilight that
Murrine is the favourite Engine of Linux Desktop users.
That's why I'm proposing to you.
Murrine is a new-conception GTK2 Cairo engine, it was a fork of
Clearlooks code with a lot of improvements and bugfixes: its best
feature is surely the "options" through which the users can easily
change the look of all the themes (There's a GUI here:
The engine is completely without bugs (it features support from gnome
devs like benzea that helped me in the bugfix process) and it is is
incredibly fast, nearly 50% faster than Clearlooks-Cairo and more
if you compare it to Ubuntulooks.
I think fedora could _at least_ add murrine to a repository, and then I
can provide a fantastic color scheme for the fedora desktop.
This is my proposale, I'm absolutely available to support you and to
start a good discussion on it.
I'm sure you will take care of these ideas so we can start a
constructive thread to support or against it.

I was wondering if anyone is having any cursor problems when running FC6 with
two monitors. I have a Dell machine with an ATI Radeon dual port card that is
having some strange issues when I move the mouse cursor across to the screen
The cursor doesn't change when it is on the second screen, for example if I
move it quickly from screen one to screen two and on screen one I was using a
text editor the cursor on screen two will be a text editor's cursor and will
never become a pointer nor any other type of cursor. If I move it over some
part of a window where we would expect the cursor to change it won't change.
I am at this moment using a driver provided by ATI but I have used the radeon
driver that comes with FC6 and I have the exact same problem. I also tried
using "SWcursor On" in my xorg.conf, this fixes the problem but creates
another one. When I move the mouse cursor anywhere on any screen it leaves a
trace of dirty on the screen as if I was moving a square and so my screen
becomes full of squares.
I am running xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.fc6 and kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.
My xorg config is simple and I am running xinerama.
If anyone is having the same issue and would like to discuss this or if you
even know that could be causing this problem, I would very much like to talk
