Description:

The realistic aero theme for emerald.

I recommend to use an Emerald "Blur decoration" option (Emerald Settings tab) and configure the "Blur Windows" effect to:

Blur Filter: Gaussian
Gaussian Radius: 11
Gaussian Strength: 1.0000

Without that, this theme looks as normal "aero theme" what you can find here.
To best effect, use black wallpaper.

Thanks.

hi, before all THANK YOU for this *excellent* theme, I completely love it before all 1.534.983 aero glass themes as someone said above xD

however I have this issue may be you can resolve:

while some windows have a cool shadow surrounding its frames, other -like nautilus, the Control Center panel (gnome), firefox and more- have same shadow BROKEN in the top and bottom frame, that is, the shadow goes smooth over both sides but then it suddenly dissapears after go around the corners both top and bottom ='(

are you aware of this? is there a problem with my system? I'm running Mint 7 (ubuntu based) with gnome.

I already tried at least to turn off shadow but only managed to turn off the botton bar shadow, not the windows shadow =P

tnx for any help, I would hate switching to another theme!!

For the Googlers:

The broken shadow problem is universal in Emerald. You can fix it by setting the shadow radius to a value < 11. You can set that value in Edit Themes > Frame/Shadows > Radius. Don't forget to save your settings. Hope this helps.

First have you got CompizConfig Settings Manager installed in your System→Preferences menu to control extra compiz effects? If not install it from Synaptc or from the terminal by pasting:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Now load it from the System→Prefs menu and scroll down to the Effects section, and TICK the box next to BLUR WINDOWS to enable it. Click on the name to change the settings as advised in the description above:

Blur Filter: Gaussian
Gaussian Radius: 11
Gaussian Strength: 1.0000

You can play with these as you like to make the glass more smoky etc.

NOTE: if they are not working make sure Emerald is set to blur, goto System→Prefs→Emerald and click on the Emerald Settings tab. Make sure the bottom menu Compiz Decoration BLur Type is NOT SET TO NONE. It shouldn't be but we all fiddle with settings sometimes lol.

I forgot when you are playing with Gaussian etc make sure Alpha Blur is ticked that means the transparent bits.

Finally, an aero theme with the glass-like blurring. There may be some 1,000 aero themes, but this is the only one that does the glass distortion

Actually, no Emerald theme does blurring. That's handled by a separate Compiz plugin.
