Yep, it's Oxygen. I've not had a chance to check out many other themes at work, but I will.

That's good to hear. Personal preferences are indeed personal, but I've never been a fan of the Big Flat Look.  :-)  Clearlooks, etc. is just about right for me.

I've built Geany a time or two in past and will do it again if I can't
locate a suitable binary package. Seems like last time I ran into some
libraries that weren't found, but I can work through that if it happens
Thanks for the quick response.
