In my minority (probably of one), glossy 3D themes for Openbox are a no-no. I like my Openbox windows to look like thin slivers of glass — not gnobby protuberances. I leave the phony 3D effects to the other desktops.
I do, however, like the Clearlooks color scheme. So here’s the default Clearlooks theme that comes with Openbox 3.4.4, modified ever-so-slightly for a flat look, instead of raised.
All the colors are the same and all the only real changes are a theme-wide replacement of the “Raised Gradient Vertical” effect to “Flat Solid” everywhere. In fact, I just commented out the original lines, so you can easily change them back or refer to the originals, if you like.

Of course, like anything I upload to WordPress, I have to change the file extension because of the whacked out naming convention. So if you download it, clip off the .doc part and restore the .tar.bz2, and it shouldn’t give you any hassle when you decompress it.
I was going to try to make an Openbox theme file (an .obt file), but I couldn’t quite figure out the process, and I have other things I need to be doing right now, instead of decrypting the theming feature in OB 3.4.4. I’ll leave it to someone else to come up with that.
P.S.: My background is set to #3465a4, a Tango blue, with xsetroot. I’m trying to wean myself off feh and wallpaper altogether, since I don’t really ever get a chance to look at it. You know what I mean?😉
