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

Hi,

Great Theme,
Best i've seen to date.

Could you PM a link to your icon set please?

Btw, could you a add a colored border to the gtkentry field when its selected?
Makes it harder to see with no difference when its selected and not.

Thanks.

P.S:I registered on opendesktop, just to say your theme rocks!

Hello there!

First of all, I have to say that I'm using Thunar, not Nautilus, for a file manager. So the looks are naturally different. However, if all you really want is to take away the text from the toolbar buttons of Nautilus and other GNOME apps, there is a GNOME tool, called Appearance dialog from the 2.20 version on, if I'm not wrong, where you can change that, if you click on the Interface tab. I hope I was helpful. Let me know if it worked to what you needed. Cheers!

As I said in previous comments, I can and I have been sharing the icon set through private messages here on OpenDesktop.org. So, right next I'll send you a PM explaining you how to get the icon theme. Cheers.

Hi,

if I read correctly you are using XFCE just like I am, I was wondering if you are able to use your icons under XFCE as well instead of Gnome. When I try to install the pack in /usr/share/icons I cannot see in in XFCE.

Further I have been wondering for a while how I can use those 'special' folders with seperate icons for example "Downloads", "Pictures", etc.

thanks,
stefan

I'm not sure of what is going on on your side, but it is definitely working on my side as well... How about putting it on your /$HOME/.icons folder to see if it works? I have a symlink in my /usr/share/icons folder to my home icons directory, so that the administrator applications can work with that theme as well.

And as for those different images at the corner of each folder, they're called Emblems. Just right-click on a folder, choose Properties and find an Emblems tab. Then, pick the emblem you wish for that folder.

Superb theme men! Great colors, I'm curious about the fonts you are using (title bar specially), keep up the good work. Also, could you PM a link to those icons? They look so cool... Thanks!

I'm using the Myriad fonts for almost all my desktop. Myriad Web, size 9, for the window controls, and Myriad Semibold, size 9, for the window titles. (The clock was made with Eurostile.)

I'm sending you a link to the icons right next. Cheers!

Boas.

It seems that I can't change from your theme to another one :p My menu and scroll bars don't change to the other themes. Is this a known issue? I posted a screenshot in the March Desktop Thread, where you know how to find me =)

Olá!

I saw your screenshot, and I'm definitely clueless about what is happening. It's not occurring here, and I don't know if other users have the same issue... But I'll keep track of the problem and try to know what possibly is going on, with my theme or not. Thanks for reporting. Obrigado!

 Diffrent color theme

 
 by IsKAll on: Mar 18 2008
 
Score 50%

A perfect theme has different color themes too, like lime, pink, blue (saw that one existed but not the metacity). Cant you make the gtk theme and metacity in other colors? Then this theme would be perfect! (I am already using all the elegant brit themes, gdm, gtk, metacity, but i like more dark colors combined with lime :P)

Good work!
