Description:

I always want brand new shiny vista-like features, but I don't like change. I adapted this theme so that it integrates best in the default Human gnome desktop.

I adapted the colors, fonts, etc of the bars and buttons to fit the default Ubuntu "human" settings, and refined it to be self-consistent.

This needs to be the default in Ubuntu. I hate the colors in the Human theme but it does look good in glass. Great concept. Thank you.

I like this a lot better too, due to the red X button and the minimize/maximize buttons that turn amber when you roll your mouse over them. Quite honestly, I think that this is what the Human theme's Metacity ought to be. Except, of course, this is, of course, an emerald theme. But then again, someone could always port this look to Metacity, I suppose.

Not a fan of Vista. The look was nice. Can you add the glass Aero effect? I am just wondering. Maybe that would require Compiz.

If you refer to the reflection effect, yes it is available in compiz, and you can find reflection images packs that contain the actual aero image.

I tried it but didn't like it too much so I removed it, but it exists. I can upload a screenshot if you want.

It's weird, but I actually like it without the reflection effect. I love Aero, but the one thing about the authentic Vista Aero that I hate is that reflection effect. I wish there was a way to diable it in Vista. All I want is the nice smoked glass effect, like your theme has. :)

nooo, not those hanging-from-top vista buttons again!
But besides that, it's not bad.

Yeah, I know. I don't claim uniqueness or originality, it's more a color consistent version of yet another vista theme.

The first idea was to suggest another color setting for vista themes that would fit the brown human theme.

Now, next thing to do to improve the theme would be to replace these buttons by something decent, I agree.

Thanks anyway ^^

cool ;)
I don't know why people think vista windeco looks nice. I admit, vista mostly looks nice, but the windeco is ugly.

There is no such thing as Vista for humans.

Get this crap off of this site.

Would someone please ban this garbage.

Hey moderators! Get some common sense here!

You must be so proud of being a shitbag, aren't you?

I don't see you coming up with anything creative.

And to the OP, how did you get it so that you could see the window under the panel? I can't figure out how to do that.

I agree with SpecKtacle. How you make your panel to be real transparent instead of pseudo-transparent? It looks great :)

To make the dock transparent you need compiz (it won't work by right-click -> Properties).

In the "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" option, tab Opacity, section "Window specific settings", add a filter using "type=Dock" and give an opacity (85 for me). I use "type=Dock | type=Dropdownmenu" to have the same effect on gnome menus, and applets.

Then you can use the "Blur windows" option, set Alpha Blur on, and put "any" in the Alpha blur windows (or at least "type=Dock"). This adds blur to every transparent effect, in particular to your dock.

I'm glad you liked something in my screen shot :), even if that's not the Emerald theme.
