(With COMPIZ) To change the window border theme open up

gconf-editor, (If not installed, it in the repos) then go to

apps >> metacity >> general >> theme (change to theme you choose) ... :wink:

Ubuntu is making a switch to dconf... So maybe using dconf editor to change the key mentioned abobe will work. If you don't have dconf editor, install the package "dconf-tools" using Synaptic.

Try ubuntu tweak, it has a theme changer which should work.

Mate has its own conf editor.

Code: Select all

mate-conf-editor

Perhaps this will work with Mate 14.
