Slackware9, Gnome, roundy-cornered windows - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

My employer's Linux boxen are all RedHat machines. Default Gnome startup comes up with those roundy-cornered window decorations. At home I installed Slackware9 w/ Gnome & I can't find any roundy-cornered windows. I kinda like them, so how do I add them - they don't seem to be available with any of the themes in the Slack version of Gnome (2.2, I think).

    Those "roundy-cornered window decorations" are part of the hotly debated
    part of Redhat known as "Bluecurve" added first with Redhat 8.0. It is a
    modification of both Gnome and KDE with themes and many changes to make
    both environments have a consistent Redhat look and feel. It seems to be
    a love it or hate it issue among many users. Hence I doubt you can get
    it specifically for your Slackware. Unless someone has ported it, which
    I seriously doubt.

    You can easily find Bluecurve style themes from art.gnome.org, usually
    renamed to Wonderland -- variations like Wonderland-Okayish and such.
    Remember to get themes for all, gtk1 and gtk2, metacity and icons to mimic
    the RH environment :)

    Depends on your window manager, there are similar themes for
    icewm (TrueCurve), sawfish (Bluecurve-Prion), metacity (e.g. Variance),
    xfwm4 (e.g. curve [url]www.xfce.org/en/xfwm4_themes.html[/url]) and oroborus
    (Bluecurve Oroborus). -> [url]http://themes.freshmeat.net/[/url]

    Ok, that works. I now remember first seeing roundy cornered windows
    on a screenshot from a sawfish window-managed box. I had already
    downloaded & installed sawfish but the included themes weren't the
    roundy cornered one even tho sawmill.org has a roundy cornered
    screenshot. So, I downloaded a few more themes - roundy cornered
    brushed metal ii, that ever neat acow, & several minimalist themes, &
    now I'm havin' fun!

    Personally, I'd be happy with a hacked fvwm to include the roundy
    corners. I'm configuring & using gnome to get some experience so I
    can wean my wife away from MicroQuack.

    I'm ignorant of the issues involved in the "hot debate"...I'd
    appreciate offline email detailing them.

    Thanks to all who responded. Bob
