Been working on this one for a while. I'm pleased on how it turned out. Let me know what you guys think ;)

See it in action here: [link]

Would go well with a dark gtk theme. In the screenshot I'm using a theme called "spacedust".

Some people seem to be having problems...
If the frame isnt straight or if theres a floating strip of pixels above the titlebar:
go to the edit themes tab and make sure that the "minimum titlebar height is 14. On the frame/shadows tab under frame borders top should be 4 and bottom should be 3.

What theme do i need for this gtk?
iHackr's avatar
This is emerald not GTK. You can use whatever GTK theme you want with this. I suggest the "spacedust" GTK theme. Search for it here on dA

Just go to the software center. search for emerald and install it. Open the manager (Sys>prefs>emerald theme manager) and click on "import". the just find the file you downloaded (and extracted since its in a .zip) and you're good to go.

Can you share GTK and panel theme also?
iHackr's avatar
GTK I used in the screenshot is called specedust. I found it here on dA. The panel is just a gradient its easy to DIY in GIMP.
