Description:

This theme is a mod of Elegant One, by Dzakusek (which was also a mod of Black-White, by Lyrae). When I saw Glossy Fall, created by Crimesaucer, I fell in love with the colors and decided I just had to apply them to the Elegant concept. Red and blue would be my master inspirations.
After some more personal changes, I came out with what I decided to call Elegant Brit. I hope you enjoy it.

The Metacity version was based on the Alessandro theme. I built it in order to follow the layout of its Emerald equivalent, that is, the title is on the right (the buttons' position is regulated on Gconf; in this theme's logic, they'd stay in the left). If you want to change the title position to the center, please follow the instructions on the Metacity XML file. However, if you have any doubts, please don't hesitate and contact me. I'll be pleased to help. I hope you like it, and if you don't, make suggestions!

The package includes a GTK theme, a Metacity theme, a PNG icon for the main menu (if you want) and a userChrome.css (copy it to the "chrome" folders of both .mozilla and mozilla-thunderbird folders under your $HOME).

The link to the Emerald theme is below. I separated them in this new edition in order to put each element of the theme in its correct category.

I'm open and very receptive to any opinions, comments and suggestions.


TO DO:
Fix Sonata bug (white on white song title when hovered);
Fix Sunbird bug (crashing altogether with Elegant Brit enabled);
Fix NetBeans bug (unreadable menu titles).

I'll appreciate all help I can get.
I'm facing some hard situations in my personal life, thus the lack of updates. I'm still researching in order to achieve the above goals.

We have such a wonderful community.

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I've been facing some serious personal issues. I promise to keep working on the theme.

IMPORTANT:
Arialis111 created a Xfwm4 version for Elegant Brit. I'm providing below the link to his work, for those who, like me, use Xfce. All credits of this Xfwm4 version go to Arialis111, to whom I'm tremendously thankful. I'm lost for words. Vote for his version! He deserves it.

The above also applies to Envyouraudience, who created an Openbox theme to match Elegant Brit. I'm linking to his work too. Thanks a lot for improving the Elegant Brit experience for the Openbox users. And of course, all credits go for Envyouraudience himself for the work he developed.

Thanks to Lyrae as well for pointing out the solution to some bugs concerning the Shutdown/Create Launcher dialogs under GNOME, the left pane on Gedit, and the weather and clock applets on the Xfce-panel. Thanks also for the creation of the marvelous PekWM theme to go with Elegant Brit.

Also many thanks to Ayoli, for having created an Elegant Brit mod compatible with the Mac Menu patch and for allowing me to upload it and make it available to the community. I couldn't have made it all alone. I really appreciate it. Plus, he's been doing a good work helping me out with other bugs. Merci, Ayoli!

I've also been helped by several other people in order to make Elegant Brit a better project. I thank PurposeOfReason, Sousuke, El Mariachi, DasGewitter and all those who have been commenting my theme and overally everybody for helping me to solve bugs, giving me suggestions, giving me strength and support and overally working to improve Elegant Brit. This is truly a work from the community to the community. Thanks, everybody!

On the screenshots, I'm using Eikon, a personal collection of icons I found across the Web, along with some modifications I made. It has evolved a lot in the last few weeks, so there are some considerable changes. I'm sharing Eikon on a non-official basis, with all those who are interested on checking it out.

To get the most recent updates to Eikon, now on its second generation, please check this website: http://drop.io/fmrbpensador

 great work

hey, just want to let you know that I registered on openDesktop just to tell you how awesome this theme is.

the only slight problem I have is that some windows (Gimp for example) do not have the resize icons, making resizing a bit difficult (not impossible)

is this just a fault of my own? I am very new too the land of linux.

Again, thanks for the excellent look!

Hello there!

I'm very sorry for taking so long to answer. There are definitely lots of apps which do not follow GTK as well as they should (especially the Mozilla apps, which use XUL, or OpenOffice, which is Java-based, etc.), and that has been bringing some serious issues to solve, BUT I believe that what you are asking about might have more to do with the fact that the window borders of Elegant Brit are very thin. I also experience some difficulties when trying to resize the windows, so, no matter where the problem comes from (even when it's only 1 pixel large, a border is STILL a border, there should be visible handles when we hover them with the mouse), it is very likely that it is what is going on.

If I didn't understand your question, please correct me. I'll be glad to help as much as possible. Thanks for writing and expressing your support to Elegant Brit.

 selected fields

hi, just another comment on the theme.
maybe this has been discussed previously, but when i use alt+tab (window switcher) in xfce, i do not see (in the window switcher itself) a frame around the icon of the application, which is a bit annoying.
a similar thing is with dialogs, where i can't see the default option (which is, whatever happens when i just press enter).

a fix for that would be greatly appreciated.

Working on that. Thank you. Talking specifically about Alt+Tab under Xfce, I've been testing other pixmap themes I use and they also display that problem, but of course there must be someone who already found a way to do it. I'm resarching. Sorry for taking too long to answer.

Hi there! Sorry for this huge delay on answering your question. I believe the GTK version you mentioned is indeed the most recent one, but may I ask you which OpenOffice version are you using? 2.3 (the most recent stable version)? Meanwhile, the fact is that I still couldn't reproduce the bug you reported in my side. But I'll be very glad if I can help you. Thanks for your support and for reporting this bug.
