Description : Emerald is a window decorator that allows for a wide variety
of new looks to be added to application windows. Emerald project is a window
decorator that provides the borders to your windows normally provided by Marco
(MATE). It is not required for Compiz to operate, however it allows for
decorations to be edited or even created from scratch. For now, there are plenty
of existing Emerald themes that can be downloaded and used first. Using Compiz
and Emerald together can produce some genuinely stunning-looking desktop
environments, although it is still possible to install and use them separately.
Emerald manager allows you to add themes easily by import option, first you need
to download themes then import via Emerald Manager. I added theme pack to PPA
which contains approx 35 themes and two other theme sets Avalon-Dark-Light,
Hoverglass that looks really great if used with matching Gtk themes. The themes
are very useful for accessibility for low-visual impaired people, so that they
can use Compiz and MATE with Orca and a typical layout.
Given the purpose of the package, pkg-a11y could handle it. Any co-maintainer
and sponsor is 9elcome.
