Black Window Issue

Postby floweringmind » Thu Oct 29, 2009 4:47 pm

I like the look and feel of Mint Linux but I find that I have trouble with the titlebars of windows when they overlap. Since they are all the same dark color, there is no way figure out what window is overlapping another window.

It would be great if you could alter the color fro windows behind other windows.

Well . . . I think you have two choices.
1) Turn on Compositing (compiz-check to see if you are able), and make the inactive windows partially transparent. (this is what I do)
2) Change to a Theme/Style that will provide the different active/inacive windows.
