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

 ff & thunderbird

 
 by adri on: Apr 8 2008
 
Score 50%

yeah, great job that. Congratulations. First theme ive seen that i liked right away without having to get used to it.

But i found some issues, even if you said you fixed both:
The menubars in Firefox(Iceweasel) an Thunderbird(Icedove) are all black. Normally the text has to be white, but it isnt.
However, when clicking on a menu, the menu opens as usual and i see the selected menu-title. So unfolding menus works fine, but displaying them closed isnt working all fine.

Would be great if you could check and fix that.

oh i just recognized there is one.
but i just cant get it installed, ff does not worry about this file. i put it in /opt/firefox/chrome and in /opt/firefox/defaults/profile/chrome, but it just wouldnt work.
i didnt try tb yet, but i guess its gonne be the same.

I removed iceweasel because i didnt like the name and because debian repositories arent up-to-date. So i always download the latest ff-tar and put it in /opt. This is the reason why i'm starting ff from /opt. Could this be the problem? i dont think so...

First it would like to thank you for your excellent work. I was able to set the icons you sent but the default volume icon doesn't change at all. it's totally hidden in the black panel.

Well, if the problem is that the volume icon on the GNOME-panel doesn't show up, that's because the icon effectively IS black, a monochrome icon, and therefore it isn't that visible when on the top of a dark blue panel like the Elegant Brit one. That's one of the reasons I always said that the icon set I'm assembling, even though I uploaded it to MediaFire to however wants it, isn't complete or perfect, and still needs improvements. Sorry for that.

 sunbird bug

 
 by ochosi on: Apr 9 2008
 
Score 50%

hi, just wanted to let you know that there are no problems with elegant brit and sunbird when using the newest version (0.8)

haven't been able to test 0.7 though (which is what's gonna be in hardy). maybe if someone else can verify that 0.7 works as well you can simply forget about the bug because it seems to be more on the mozilla- than on the gtk-side.

(more important to me is the application-switcher [alt-tab] that i mentioned earlier ;) )

Thanks for the update. It's a shame that so many programs seem to be stuck forever on the 0.* phase. I hope things will be more stable as Sunbird advances and finally hits the 1.0 version.

As for the Alt+Tab highlight request, I'm still researching and trying to see if pixmap themes allow it. I'd also love to see Elegant Brit with a flashing button on the panel whenever an application tries to alert us (like when a new message arrives on Pidgin), as someone else requested some pages back.

Sorry, therefore, if the theme isn't being updated that often. But I really appreciate your support. Keep writing! Cheers!

hmhm, at the moment i'm using parts of elegant brit and some murrine-theme, which enables me to have the default-button-selection-rectangle and the window-switcher working. but in the end this is only a workaround.

have you considered asking xfce-devs about the window-switcher (this seems to be a very general problem with pixmap-themes)?

anyhoo, good to know you're still around, cause i think elegant brit has been one of the most innovative and influencing themes here lately.

Here i found a fix for this font color issue. In panel.rc (.themes/Elegant Brit/gtk-2.0) the text font color should a dark color and not in white, because of the white input field. so i change this text[NORMAL] = "#333333" in line 13 to grey. Not i can read the text in the field.

@fmrbpensador: Can you make it as default?

I've noticed a bug on Firefox 3 with the "Places" window (now called Library apparently).
The menu items in this window (Organize, Views, Import and Backup) are not visible until hovered.
However, adding this code to userChrome.css seems to fix it (not thoroughly tested though) :

#placesMenu > .menu-iconic
{
color: rgb(0%,0%,0%) !important;
}
#placesMenu > .menu-iconic:hover
{
color: #6c9eab !important;
}

 Sunbird Bug

I have a feeling this is to do with pixbuf engine. I had similar problems with the Ice Orange theme
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=71554

When I use a theme that doesn't use pixbuf Sunbird works fine.
