Description:

This is simply a version of the existing Elegant Brit theme, suitable for the Mac Menu patch. I don't use that patch in my PC, but Ayoli was very kind to send me a modded version of this theme, so that the Mac Menu users out there can also use Elegant Brit. Please report any bug you find, so that we can enhance your user experience and improve Elegant Brit.

Thank you so much, Ayoli!

NOTE: This version was designed for those whose panels are 24px high. Therefore, if your GNOME-panel has a different height, you might have to change the height of the Panel/menubar-black.png pixmap.

Furthermore, you might need to go to the GNOME-panel properties dialog and choose Panel/menubar-black.png as the background of the panel.


Ayoli also provided the screenshots here included.

As I'm sure it's been noted, the statusbar icons don't use the alpha channel if they have one, but insead get drawn with the background color of the panel and overlap the orange a slight bit.

As far as I know, both the Metacity and the Emerald themes for Elegant Brit still have white borders... Could you be more precise?

if you look at your screenshot, there is no white border around every window... instead there is a dark border.

Hello again. That screenshot, as I informed above, was offered by Ayoli, and therefore I believe that he modded the theme to introduce a dark border. But, as you will find out by downloading my theme, it has a white border, just like the screenshots I took for the original page show. I'm sorry for the misleading image, I'll try to correct that as soon as possible. I had to borrow it since I don't have the MacMenu patch installed. Sorry, once again, and thanks for paying attention to those details. I need and appreciate that. Cheers!

i think it would be more at the original theme if the red stripe would be between the decoration and the window

Oh, thanks!... My bad. I was going to object that the red-orange stripe, in the middle of the title and the menu, would break the continuity of that dark blue field both share, but I just remembered... The menu is on the top of the screen, NOT under the window title!... Oh my head!... So YES, you made a GREAT suggestion. So I'll be working on a new Metacity and Emerald version for the MacMenu users and then post it. Thanks for pointing that out, I wouldn't have thought of that otherwise. I hope you're enjoying Elegant Brit!
