Description:

Staring down all the time at my aluminium keyboard of my Imac I can not help noticing that it is a brilliant - yet simple- design.

As a gnome-desktopthemer I decided to try to make a GTK and Emerald theme based on this keyboard....

It is something refreshingly new to look at. So give it a try!
Please try before you rate. Comments are welcome...

In the AluChrystalpack (untar it twice !!!) you will find an GTK-theme, an emerald theme and the desktopbackground. There is no metacity theme included.
To install:

After you have extracted the downloaded file twice (yes twice!) you will have a file. Within that file you have the AluChrystalGTKtheme.targz. Drag and drop that into the system/preferences/appearance -window. Then select the theme.
The emerald theme needs to be 'imported' by the emerald-theme manager (use synaptic to install this application if you do not have it yet.)

Corrected some errors like 'Missing GTK-engine' in Ubuntu Intrepid

I can install this theme just fine on my Intrepid install, but when I run emerald from the command line I get this set of errors:

/home/ian/.themes/AluChrystalGTKTheme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:465: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "Buttons/button-default.png"
/home/ian/.themes/AluChrystalGTKTheme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:470: Background image options specified without filename
/home/ian/.themes/AluChrystalGTKTheme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:1905: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "Buttons/button-default.png"
/home/ian/.themes/AluChrystalGTKTheme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:1908: Background image options specified without filename

The theme is enabled, but as soon as I close the terminal with the error message all of the emerald supplied pieces of the window decoration disappear (they don't revert to something else--they're just gone!). Is something missing here? Or am I misunderstanding something? I've never used emerald before.

Thanks

Really nice work!

Is there any way to change the default application text colour from gray to black? The gray probably fits the theme better but gives me a bit of eye strain in open office.

Thanks!

Hi there.

Problem: I'm half way to finish my installation: everything looks OK, except the top bars... I got a warning saying
the gtk+ library is not installed. I installed a lot of libs (Pango, glib,...)
but I just couldn't manage the J2000 (libjasper) - looks like everything is OK but configure gives me the same error...

Any ideas ?

There was an error in the GTKRC-file that produced the said error. This is solved now with version 2.0
