    Emerald which has no official support only supplies window decoration for the window border and panels. For icons , GTK themes, more emerald themes see the link. Installation instructions can be found on the forum and the web. http://gnome-look.org/?xsection=home

    Though I tried emerald back on 9.10 I never modified the theme files if that is what you are referring to . I can't seem to access the Wiki page which is outdated.

    Look for GTK3.x themes and Icon themes at gnome-look.org

    For GTK3.x themes, extract the theme folder from the download and move it to /usr/share/themes
    For icon themes, extract the theme folder from the download and move it to /usr/share/icons
    Use one of the config. tools like MyUnity (for 12.04) or Unsettings, or Ubuntu Tweak to select the new theme(s).
    Log out and back in may be necessary.
