Back in March I did some hunting around here to see if I can find an Emerald theme that uses the buttons from the Elementary theme with the lucid colors, but the buttons on the Elementary elegante (lucid version) Emerald theme don't work for me. The Pint - Radiance theme by Antonio Serrano is great to go with the Radiance theme, but then I lose the OSX-look that I use Mac4Lin to get.

I ended up making a mashup Emerald theme using the colors of the Pint - Radiance theme, combined with buttons from the Mac4Lin theme as well as from Merman's great Elementary Modified theme. After showing them to Anirudh, Mac4Lin's creator, we agreed that they should be shared with everyone. We know the Menu button doesn't quite look right but it will have to do for now until I can get the buttons replaced.

There are two versions of the theme available on This one is the Mac4Lin Radiance 1.0 theme with the "traffic lights" on the left hand side.
I couldn't see how to add a second download link without hosting the file elsewhere so for the other theme you will need to get my Mac4Lin Radiance Emerald theme here:
