Description:

Bring that Sexiness to It.
An Emerald theme for those looking for something with that modern, alpha blended look, yet distinctly Linux.
A few minimalist sensibilities like the subtler drop shadows, clean window title font, and light borders keep it from overpowering your desktop while tasteful touches of eye candy like the glowing buttons make it a pleasure to close any offending windows ;)

Like the GTK Theme?
The GTK theme, MurrinaMetrosuave is included in the archive. You'll need the Murrine engine installed to use it.
See http://www.cimitan.com/murrine/ , or check your distribution's package repository.

Like the Icons?
Somatic icons are linked below.

Like the Background?

Other Issues
If you're trying to unify the look of your KDE and Gnome apps there is an informative article here:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uniform_look_for_QT_and_GTK_apps
If you're using KDE, it may be difficult to make Firefox look like it does in the screenshot. You may be able to make Firefox jive with your current Qt theme, however.

Changelog
0.4 Added button glows, tweaked the look of the frame a bit.




Changelog:

Because I haven't updated this in a while, I've added the PSD source file used to make the icons.

Feel free to mess around and make your own renditions of this theme. I'd appreciate some acknowledgment however!

The psd consists largely of vector layers and various non-destructive edits so you should get a lot of mileage out of it even if it's only to glean a few layer effect ideas.

The license has also changed to LGPL.

Hi,

I believe you forgot to package the emerald theme along with the gtk.

As in the preview, i am not getting those 45 degree lines that you u get on the top of firefox and other windows...
I have installed both, GTK and emerald theme...

The theme is super hot nevertheless. Loved it very much.

Thanks for the hard work. Really appreciated.

Here is the screenshot of my desktop with all the changes of ur pack..

I believe you may be missing the Murrine engine.

I've you've got Ubuntu, open up synaptic in administrative options, search for "murri" (not sure if it's 'ine or 'ina' ;)

Something relevant and self-evident should show up ;)

Otherwise, the author's website is: http://www.cimitan.com/murrine/

Yep, got it working. It was murrine. Had to restart to see changes though.

Thanks again dude.

That looks like a really awesome theme! But how do I get murrine and the gtk theme to work?
Does murrine run on KDE?

Oh, I see! After the installation, you move the file gtkrc from the archive into /usr/share/themes/Qt/gtk-2.0/, replacing the existing file.
Got it figured out! :-)

...except the only window where it applies seems to be Mozilla Thunderbird. None of the other windows show the stripes, other than in the screenshot. Is there a trick?

Not entirely sure how you go about installing GTK themes in KDE. In Ubuntu it's as simple as a drag-and-drop of the MurrinaMetrosuave.tar.gz archive into the theme selection window but that's using gnome as the desktop environment.

You've just stumbled upon one of the big annoyances of having competing desktop environments and their associated api's (GTK+ and Qt) - visual inconsistency. There isn't really a de-facto solution, but a quick google search yielded some possibilities:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/gtk-kde4?content=74689
http://gtk-qt.ecs.soton.ac.uk/screenshots.php

But these look to be aimed at making your GTK apps look like Qt apps - not installing GTK themes. In either case, your QT apps won't have the striped bars look (which is a Murrine thing).

Another option is:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=40492
Which provides a unified engine for both GTK and Qt apps. Again, won't look like the screenshot - so you'll have customize it independently to suit your tastes.

But in any case, Emerald is the same on either KDE or Gnome, so the sexy window decorations will continue to function and look the same.

Any other suggestions from KDE users?

 Some windows don't get themed

 
 by hamletv on: Jun 16 2008

My Synaptic Package Manager window and the Software Sources window don't get the GTK theme applied. If I change the theme to one of the pre-installed ones (Ubuntu 8.04) then they do get themed.

Any ideas on this?

Thats because they run as a different user (root)...Move your themes from /home/username/.themes to /usr/share/themes and all the windows would be themed.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
