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

 Awesome!

This is probably the best theme I've found for Emerald and GTK, a seamless blending of the two! It looks like it was designed by a graphic designer, clean useful and stylish to boot. Nothing is cluttered or hard to find.

Thank you!

This GTK/Metacity theme is best combined in Emerald with solidLINE Emerald theme.

Very slick look.

 Intrepid broke it

What engine(s) does it use? Under Intrepid it states that the theme will not display properly as the Gtk engine is not installed. It does seem lighter and less defined than in Hardy.

Having the exact same problem. Would really appreciate a solution to this since I changed from KDE to Gnome in order to make this theme work properly.

Same warning here also. So far I've only noticed it to affect Synaptic which swaps to what looks like Raleigh. Error message looks like it's meant to say which engine is missing, but there's nothing between the quotes.

Synaptic looks like that because it is run as root and the change in theme alerts you to that fact (the same thing happens when you gksudo nautilus). This is not a problem with this theme.

Thanks for the reply. It would make sense that that's the problem, but it's not consistent with the activity when I'm running other themes. Using Clearlooks for example, Synaptic uses the same GTK theme as everything else. The only noticable difference running, say, a gksudo nautilus is that the icons revert to standard gnome. Does the Clearlooks theme specifies itself as the root theme as well while EB just omits this and falls back on a more basic theme?

 Icons and progressbars

 
 by rollex on: Nov 30 2008
 
Score 50%

I would like to have those icons as well :) pm me if you can please, I'll appreciate. Plus, how do I get those fancy "candy"-progressbars. I would like to have them because for example deluge or gtk-based-torrentprograms now look boring with dark gray flat progressbars. Tried something like

engine "clearlooks"
{
progressbarstyle = 0 # 0 = candy bar, 1 = flat
}

but it says "Clearlooks configuration option "progressbarstyle" is not supported and will be ignored." Help me out please?

You will save my life if this works out! Your theme is more than perfect, I just need this on little thing :)
