Description:

As I’ve seen requests for a dark elegant theme, I’ve started to work on this.
I've added a flat version.
Here’s a first release of it, including the metacity theme, there are also 2 emerald themes for original and flat elegant dark (link bellow).
This theme is not global/mac menu ready, but there is now a MacMenu version of Elegant Dark (link bellow).

It's yet another mod of the great Elegant Brit by fmrbpensador (AKA What is in a name? on ubuntuforums.org) who I thank a lot for all his awesome work.

It might have some bugs, please let me know if you find some.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Hope you’ll enjoy it :)

absolutely awesome, i've been using elegant brit and i find this dark version very usable... but, there's always a "but".. in this case is the dark background in emesene and/or pidgin... the fonts are unreadable, i know i can set the color of my own fonts in white for the right contrast but the incoming message comes in black text since it usually comes from a windows box, and black over white is standard over there... did i explain myself??
i dont know if this is fixable... but its no good for me, im on a laptop and sometimes when outdoors or on a poor lightning conditions, its just impossible to read black fonts over dark background

Thanks, it is conky on the bottom right.
Here's the script : http://ayozone.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/conkyrc.txt
(you'll have to rename it to .conkyrc and you also may need to adjust cpu and network interfaces names)

You'll need these font for the icons :

Of all the themes that's derived from Elegant Brit, I think this is my most favorite one yet. Great job ayoli! :)

PS. It appears that all the pop up tool tips in OpenOffice appears as white text on white box, making them unreadable. It would be great if you could fix this bug. ;)
