Description:

This is a emerald version of my slickness theme,
it fits with all of the slickness themes
except golden.

The fonr it uses is artwiz snap, get it here:
http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/

to install:
go to emerald theme manager and click import
scroll to the SlicknesS.emerald file.

If you have problems let me know, this emerald
stuff is like astrophysics to me so it
is more than possible something went wrong,
but anyway , it works for me

I found that in the latest version the title bar is semi-transparent which is very cool. Don't know if it is a new feature or I didn't notice before?

Thank you very much all of you for your kind comments!! :)

Very appreciated!

The iconset is this one:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/black-white+2+Style?content=72619

as for the transparency effect you see in the
screenshot, it is the "major" change to this version,
also , in the screenshot I have the alpha blur effect
activated.

Thanks for suggesting different gradient, tho
I must say that that is the one thing I have been
able to be kinda happy with for more than a day
or so :)

It is not meant to be 3-dimensional, for this hole
slickness project I have is to make a black and
white clear but still kinda "slick" environment
to work in :)

My next theme might be more 3 dimensional tho,
At the moment my d**n laptop (which I absolutely
love to work on) is f***ed (It wont recognize the
d**n power cable) , honestly , next time I will
buy me a macbook (when I have the money :D)!!!

Thanks again guys!

That's VERY nice.

One of my reservations was that this theme package looked "flat", but the transparency goes a long way in aiding that.

Maybe work on a gradient for it to give it a three-dimensional look? Look at the Darklight emerald theme for a good example.

I like this seem very much, it is nearly perfect -- the best dark theme I have ever seen...

A question about this emerald theme: how can I make the window border semi-transparent, like the aero effect (your sample image is like that).

I can use alt+scroll, but that will make window content transparent, which is not what I want.

Thank you!

The whole window in the screenshot is slightly transparent... look closely. There is a plugin for Compiz that enables you to set transparency for certain windows.

I'm sure you mean the second screenshot
which is an old one of the first version :)

The first screenshot is the updated one.

As for the metacity I don't know if it is
capable of such a thing but I can try!

I wish you would also update your metacity windows border so that the button would also be side by side.

Looks good to me.

You can discard my comment in the other thread about changing the appearance of the thing, it looks GREAT when the Emerald theme is on top.

None, I just ported the theme to emerald,
ofc just by using emerald you get some
new features.

Tell me what features you want and I try to
add them :)

btw, yes, that is just the wallpaper.
