Description:

This is a port of a button theme I made for the Crystal window decoration (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Crystal?content=13969) that was inspired by the Dark & Nameless emerald theme. I never truly finished the Crystal theme, but if there were enough demand I might be convinced to do so.

Emerald recommendations:
  • Use Button Fade = true

  • Use Button Fade Pulse = false

  • Button Fade Total Duration = 358

  • Button Fade Step Duration = 50

  • Changelog:

    0.3: More minor tweaks such as darker translucency. Also added an alternate version for lower resolution displays.

    0.2: Just a few minor tweaks.

    nice work, really loven this theme.
    and for all the guys who want a gtk theme of this....
    the point of emerald was to enhance the looks of the desktop windows, and it works. but the reason its not a gtk theme is gtk doesnt have a glass engine like emerald. sorry to burst your bubbles

    Hi!
    I haven't used this theme yet but it looks really great.
    Don't you plan to port this theme for XFWM?

    Hi
    Super cool your theme but the only thing is the button flashing...maybe too fast, slower should be fantastic.....
    Or is there a way to set up this parameter?
    Thanx

    The button fading and pulse settings cannot be set by the theme but I DO give you some recommendations for these settings in the description.

    Very classy, enough to withstand my regular monthly overhaul of look and feel, as it seems to go with both light and dark backgrounds.

    The title bar is a bit thick so only for hi-res screens.

    If I could just change the stick window button on the left to preform 'Always On Top' instead it would be perfect

    Thnx :)

    I set the sticky buttons to also be the Up/Above buttons in v0.3. To use it, Open you emerald settings, click on the 'edit themes' tab, click on the 'titlebar' tab bellow that, find the 'Title-bar Object Layout' option that is set to the string "Y(0):T:N(0)X(0)C" and change the 'Y' to an 'A'. You may have to reload compiz after that to get it to work properly (I did).

    Also, check out radial_thinner if you use a lower display resolution.

    One thing is though, how do i keep the border title icons always highlighted white instead of shaded out grey when the window is active/focused?

    Beau~ti~ful! This is the kind of shockingly good design that gets my attention in a hurry, then turns out to be usable even after I've tried it. ^_^

    I love how the border seems to go well with all kinds of colour schemes and backgrounds, and _love_ how the buttons are so easy to adapt to other themes.

    It would be awesome if you could make a Help button, as well.

    Thanx, I may get around to putting in some extra buttons for 0.3, but for now I'm a bit too busy with other things.
