LighthouseBlue GTK2 Engine 2.7.5-eq3

The original LighthouseBlue GTK+ engine
LighthouseBlue GTK2 Engine is the original GTK+ engine that was removed in the 2.8.x releases of gtk-engines.

Developer comments

I took a GIT snapshot of the tree right before the engine was removed, made a few modifications, and stripped the tarball down to the barebones, so it won't clobber your more up-to-date GTK engines when you install it

Modifications include:
-- slightly modified etching at the edges of menubars and toolbars, to make windows that have a toolbar but no menubar look a lot better (to me, anyhow)
-- Added a visible resize grip (look inspired by Mac OS9)
-- Fixed a crash with newer versions of the GIMP.

Unfortunately, since this theme uses GDK and not Cairo for drawing, it won't work with upcoming 3.x GTK releases. Help in updating this would be welcome!
