Description:

It's been a while since I uploaded on here, so I thought I would add a red emerald theme tonight. The theme was originally based on Lars' BlueNight-II (lagadesk.deviantart.com/gallery) and mk64's (mk64.deviantart.com/gallery) 'BlackBird' themes.

The buttons in the theme are different between the 'activate' and 'deactivate' states. For example, if you maximize the window, the maximize button takes on a lighter 'gold' color to make it easy to identify the 'restore' button.

You may have to adjust the 'gold' colors in the theme to have it look gold on your monitor. I have noticed that there is wide variance between how monitors display colors to just tweak it a bit if needed.

The titlebar font is Stonehenge that you can download from my deviantART page:

drankinatty.deviantart.com/gallery

*ther are a few more emerald themes there as well.

To install, either use the compiz-config-settings-manager and "import theme" or simply unzip the theme to ~/.emerald/themes (for you only) or unzip it to /usr/share/emerald/themes for system wide install.

Then just open emerald-theme-manager (sort the themes by name) and choose the theme.

Of course you must have compiz and emerald running for this to succeed.

Enjoy!

My only guess is this:

You may need to change the titlebar font or download and install the stonehenge font from my deviantart site above.

I love this color scheme (and the black and blue ones too) but I can't help but think that for some reason, the title bar font looks a bit thicker than when I use a different color scheme. It's no big deal really, but I've been wondering what the reason could be. :)

Above,

To install use the 'import' function of emerald-theme-manager not compiz config setting manager. The manual install steps are fine. Enjoy.

I forgot to mention above, the non-action buttons like help, are red in color to distinguish them. If you would prefer gold only, just open the emerald-theme-manager and choose the theme then -> edit theme-> buttons and simply replace the help button with the close button. (just select the close button from the menu button file-open dialog and you are done...
