This Emerald Theme intends to give an original theme, with glow and backlight, but very soft on the eye.
Color Schemes and look have been chosen to fit well with the chocolate color scheme used in Gnome in Ubuntu Edgy.
This theme is the companion to my two other Emerald Theme, EdgyKHotGlow (this one is intended for Kubuntu Edgy and Lila-colors lovers) and EdgyGHotGlow (this one is intended for brow/orange colors lovers)
Of course you can use this theme under KDE and in any GNU/Linux distro using Beryl/AIGLX.
The glow and back light effect provides a good way of focusing on the current app and giving it an original and modern look.
You have the possibility to change the buttons position in emerald theme manager (I highly prefer the buttons at left like in Mac OSX, because I think it's far better in terms of usability).
Hope you'll like it ! Enjoy and feel free to modify this theme provided that you give me credit for original work, it's GPL !
