Description:

A simple combination of light and dark.

Includes the "Glow" metacity and XFCE window themes by fmrbpensador and ochosi respectively.

(Guys, any issues with my distributing these, please let me know, I have left any credits/copyright messages intact)

All comments and suggestions are welcome. Please try to keep them constructive (it really helps). Also, I would appreciate it if you could try it before rating. It tends to look different from the screenshots.

There is no emerald theme. I would recommend that one use gtk-window-decorator in compiz[-fusion]/beryl.
If someone is interested in creating an emerald theme, I would be happy (and grateful) to include it.

To prevent transparency in gtk-window-decorator (in a terminal):

gconftool -s /apps/gwd/metacity_theme_opacity -t float 1

Hi, very good theme. There's something which I think can be improved though:

1: Applications menu text becomes grey (mostly unreadable) when you click on it.

2: Windows on the panel becomes white when you hover the mouse over, it doesn't go very well with the stylish blue/grey color.

3: The button to view the history from the adress bar in Firefox is black/grey while everything else is white. Also including the history.

4: If you click on the clock/date applet on the panel the week and day text can be quite unreadable.

That's everything I've found :)

Thanks for the input. I'll work on it.

If you wanted to make your inactive windows not transparent, so the border still blends with the menubar, there's a key in gconf-editor you can change. The application is gwd, and the key is something with opacity in the name, IIRC. I believe it's set to like 0.75 by default, all I remember for sure is you want to change it to 1.

This should do it

gconftool -s /apps/gwd/metacity_theme_opacity -t float 1

I'm really not familiar with making emerald themes. If someones' ready to make one, I'll be happy to include it.

I use this with compiz fusion and the gtk-window-decorator. It works pretty much the same as emerald.

hey

this theme is really nice. It is one of the few themes that works well with eclipse. I suggest you make an emerald theme to go with the gtk theme.
