After making DarkGlassBeauty for a dark desktop theme, I decided to make an Emerald theme for a light theme. So I made this one which i called LightSilverBeauty, a light silver glassy Emerald theme, also with lots of window border buttons: menu, shade, stick, above, minimize, maximize and close.

It goes very well with light themes, in the picture above you can see the gorgeous GnomishBeige theme with the splendid Lila_HD_Light-Grey icon theme in MATE desktop environment. Doesn't it look great? :)

You need Compiz as your window manager to install Emerald themes. How to install Emerald themes in Ubuntu 16.04 based operating systems:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:manatails/emerald
sudo apt update
sudo apt install emerald compizconfig-settings-manager

Open CCSM (compizconfig settings manager), go to Effects -> Window Decoration and replace "/usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator" with "emerald --replace &". Logout or reboot so it takes effect.

Then launch Emerald Theme Manager from your menu and import your downloaded theme.

Beryl and Emerald are theme decorators used under Compiz to provide window themes.

Themes can also be used with KDE Plasma via Smaragd:
