Hello i would like to have an option to use NeXT,rxvt scrollbar styles
and a tabbar like mrxvt (Screen Shot)
I don't know if anyone other than me would be interested of this but ill give it a try by posting this.

Hi, I am not sure what is the feature you want.
1. tabbar at bottom of window? -> #define TABBAR_PLACE BOTTOM in evilvte
2. scrollbar? I do not see any scrollbar in the image.
3. running program / command in tab label? -> Try lilyterm. The feature is in the TODO list of evilvte.
4. transparent tabbar? -> I think it should be provided by window manager or composite manager.
4. (As far as I know, not all GTK+ theme / engine support true transparency.)
5. 256 colors? Blinking cursor? VTE / evilvte has supported them.

1) What i meant by a NeXT,rxvt styled scrollbar is a scrollbar that looks like either rxvt,NeXT etc - i like it better on terminals.
2) The screenshot i posted were just a suggestion if we could have a similair tabstyle, i know it maybe was not the best screenshot because of the tabbar's position. But just ignore the position and focus on the style of the tabs.

Ah, I see.
VTE depends on GTK+, so it is naturally that VTE-based terminal emulators use GTK+ as the default toolkit.
I have no idea if GTK+ can let its scrollbar behave like a rxvt one.
I have no plan to support other GUI interface other than GTK+.

I know some GTK+ themes / engines may mimic the style, but I personal do not use GTK+ themes / engines. :-P
