Never mind, I didn't have the pixbuf engine installed! D'oh - Nov 30 2014
Hello there,

Great theme, love it. However I've recently done a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 and applied the theme but no GTK apps are getting styled. Unity is styled fine, Chrome and Firefox are fine but everything else falls back to the, err, fallback Gnome theme. Any ideas? Checked permissions in /usr/share/themes, all looks good. What am I doing wrong? Cheers

No, fair enough, but maybe there's a way of changing the Unity menu bar drop downs/dialogues to a black sort of colour? I'm not sure, last time I made a theme was about 7 years ago for GTK2! - Aug 31 2014
Hello again,

The Unity menu bar at the top has white drop down menus which, if using a white indicator icon theme (as you would due to the bar being dark) you cannot see the icons in the menu's...

See here for screenshots - Aug 30 2014
Oops, my bad... Should have downloaded the theme first! There's already a Unity theme :P - Aug 29 2014
Hello there,

This theme looks stunning... I'm almost tempted to install Gnome 3 purely for it!

I was wondering whether a Unity theme was in the pipeline? If you could make it look anywhere near as good as the Gnome shell theme many people would rejoice I reckon :D

All the best - Aug 29 2014

Hello there,

Just a heads up if this theme is still developed (I hope so, it's great) but the style of the system tray does not work correctly in KDE 4.10

Looking forward to an Ubuntu 12.04 release :) - Feb 14 2012
Hey there,

I've been a massive fan of your icon theme for ages. However I recently installed it on Ubuntu 11.10 and the battery indicator icon seemed really large, low res and generally horrid. You may of fixed this by now but I just thought I'd see.

Keep up the good work! - Oct 11 2011

Just found another bug... well it's not really a bug, just a niggle that will make the theme better if fixed. The progress bars when updating repository information only appear when progress has reached 20%

Its only a minor problem but every little helps

Ah yes, fair enough. Metacity is a lot faster. I've found a bug with the Rhythmbox indicator applet in Ubuntu, the currently playing text is not present... possibly due to the text colour... unless its just an issue with my system.

Here's a screenshot

I love your theme, it is very very usable. Just a couple of things though... do you think you will bring back an emerald theme anytime soon? loved the last one.... Also, I much preferred the scrollbars in 0.6. The scrollbars in 0.7 seem a bit too chunky.

Keep up the good work!

I'd also agree, my side pane looks awful as well... I am using the elementary build of nautilus, however the problem is the same... Also I do like the little inset dot as a 'spacer' however it does not look good in some applications... for example the bottom right corner of Nautilus.

I do love your theme though, don't get me wrong :)

Just installed, it looks beautiful :) Just wondering though, for some reason when i open nautilus or do anything desktop related, the background is no longer transparent in conky, and it turns white :s

Any idea whats going on?

Hello there,

By raw settings do u mean the settings in the extracted .emerald file? or other settings? As for the background, it is part of the latest Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex release. You can download it from

Hello there!

I really like your theme, I use it on my desktop and laptop :) just a couple of questions, do you know how to convert the metacity window decoration theme into xfce window decorator? I ask as I run xfce4.4 on my laptop and although the gtk theme is brill its not quite the same with out the window decoration. Also, do you know how to change the text colour of the previously typed urls and searches in Firefox? as these come up with the web 2.0 ish background like the context menus however the text is black and therefore unreadable. Thanks again for the brill theme.
