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?
Check out http://exoteric.roach.org/bg/index.html
You need to read the terms of service to get the password (seems to be generated every day).
Background shown is 'Scream' in this gallery:

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.

Easily one of the most original Emerald themes I've seen in quite some time (great description too :-P ). Looks great, keep it up.

It's a shame I accidentally lost that part of the description.

OTOH, we now have a beautiful mug of Cmdr. Riker.

Thanks for the positive encouragement!

Finally someone came up with a theme that's not blue colored, or Vista-copy.

I was beginning to think that I was in a theme-park for the 'color-blind and 'vistally-disabled. :)

The Metrosuave theme is a nice compromise that's pleasing to the eyes without being so damn boring.

It’s quite a reprieve from all the rest of the billions and billions of (Carl Sagan here) billions upon billions of ‘mind-numbing blue and insipid 'Copy-Cat Vista themes that run rampant here in the Beryl Blue-ew Universe.

Oh and if you're into the psychedelic stuff that Shpongle album in the screenshot is worth checking out! Psychedelic electronic \ trance \ ambient.

Their logo had the honor of appearing along with Tool's and the Grateful Dead's in Alex Grey's 100th birthday painting for Hoffman - can't give the band a better endorsement than that ;)

All I see in v.4 is a GTK theme but no Emerald theme. Perhaps you forgot to include it?
