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

I've never really felt the need to post a comment to a gnome-look theme. However, this theme just forced me to register.

Awesome job! It looks very sleek and clean, and that's the way I like it, keep up the good work, it's honestly the best theme I've ever come across (well it's the most fitting theme for me, I'm sure that there will be others who will not share this opinion), and most of all very original!

I'll be looking forward to your next work...

hi,

thanks for a wonderful theme. I really like it and use it as my default XFCE theme currently.

There are just a few minor issues i am experiencing with it, none of which are bad enough to make me switch back though..

Before I used Fawn by Lyrae which was perfect too but i like these colors better. However What I preferred about Fawn was that unselected windows had no window decorations whatsoever thus giving a more minimal look, is that something you can do too?

The other thing i noticed is that in Evolution selected mails that don't have focus in the list are unreadable white on light grey and of course the unreadable XFCE clock.

thanks so far though,
stefan.

Hello there!... I'm trying to work on the Evolution bug, but meanwhile, just let me know, that feature you mentioned about Fawn is actually related to Emerald, right? Just to make things clear. Thanks for the compliments! Enjoy!

hi,

thanks for picking this up so quickly. what I was referring to regarding Fawn is not regarding emerald but rather just the regular (gtk) themeing. it is visible in this screenshot:

http://gnome-look.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=58426&file1=58426-1.jpg&file2=&file3=&name=Fawn

and this is the theme (also by Lyrae incidently):

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Fawn?content=58426

what you can see in the screenshot is that the inactive windows have no decorations at all, i really like this behaviour.

thanks,
stefan

One last thing - I've noticed that the text on the xfce4 weather applets is unreadable - white on white it appears.

Great job! Theme looks simply and pretty clear. Now all, that we need is Wallpaper, fully completting the theme =)

hi,

thanks for the new version. now at least the firefox3 menu's are readable again. I will test it at work against OOo to see if that works too. I do think that the blue color is slightly out of tone with the rest of the theme however, dont know what it should be instead yet but I don't see blues like this elsewhere in your theme. will think upon that one.

thanks,
stefan

i did notice however that at least in Firefox3 the new blue menu's get replaced by a white-on-white menu / tab when selected thus rendering them unreadable.

hi,

i just tested the OOo fix. For me it still doesnt work even in the new version. It is sort of changed, by default I don't see the menu's but when I hover over them they turn white with blue text in them.

imho it would look best if the FF3 / OOo menu's appear the same as other applications, i mean white on grey, maybe that helps.

for me version 1.1.8 fixed both ooffice and ff.

even though i agree with at least some of the scepticism concerning the blue color i'm quite happy with the fix. thanks a lot for the great theme!

Thanks for commenting, and sorry for the lack of replies here in the comment box. I've been feeling quite tired in the mental sense, but I'll catch it up.

As for the polemic blue colour, that was my only choice, with the poor knowledge I have for now. Thanks to OOO and FF's odd structure (and who said FF3 was more GTK-compliant? Gee... I'd rather have it built on QT if XUL is such a pain), in order to fix the unreadable menus I had to affect other parts of the theme. And since I could not keep the dark blue-nearly black of the menu text that existed before, since it made the menus on OOO unreadable, and because to put the latter on a white colour would turn all the other menus unreadable, I had to come to a midway solution: a lighter blue. First I tried to use the same light blue of the prelight buttons of the panel. It turned out to be too clear over a white background. Then I darkened that colour in several ways, and the one that I found today seems to be the best by far. In my way to see it, gray would definitely off tone with the rest of the colour's scheme. I could definitely do whatever I wanted with my theme and my ideas if the programs didn't restrain me. It is frustrating indeed.

Thanks again for your concern and care about Elegant Brit. Even if I don't answer, all of you who write comments can be sure that I'm reading you and taking note of all your opinions, bugs and suggestions. It means a lot to me that you even bother writing and giving your contribution to this project. Thanks a lot. Tight hugs. I hope you're all enjoying Elegant Brit.

I actually quite like the blue - while it certainly isn't optimal it is a pretty good half-way house, and it falls in well with the rest of the aesthetic. At least I can read my OO menus again! Thanks for such a wicked job
