Hey! Welcome to the homepage for the Vox Populi Emerald theme project. Here you can download the latest official variants of the theme as well as older versions of the theme - that is if I ever release a version past 1.5. The Vox Populi project is the matured and reworked result of my 'UbuntuFrost' themes.
Please feel free to vote the theme up or down and leave comments; I likely will not view or respond to the comments swiftly but rest assured they will be read at some point. Enjoy!
In order to get the blur effect that is shown in the example pictues you will need to enable the 'blur windows' plugin in ccsm(CompizConfigSettingsManager) and set the 'blur filter' to whichever settings you prefer or whichever settings work best on your system. I currently set my 'blur filter' to use a 'gaussian' blur and set the 'gaussian radius' to 13.
The following link is a preview pic that shows my Emerald settings. Do as you wish of course but I also recommend trying these settings to make the theme look & feel better:
