Ubuntu :: Changing The Window Border Color?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been struggling to change the border color of the windows on Ubuntu without actually changing the theme (e.g., Keeping the "Human" theme, but having the frame borders be a different color than orange.) I have searched Google for some help, but found nothing that works. I have gone to System > Preferences > Appearance and set the 'Selected Items' color [URL] but to no avail. Only the controls changed color, not the window borders.

Ubuntu :: Change Inactive Window Border Color?

Nov 29, 2010

I've been searching and have been unable to find a solution. My current theme is rather dark, for reading at night, etc. And with inactive windows on the screen, the border changes to white from black and makes it difficult on the eyes.

Is there a way to change this inactive color to another, such as black or dark gray?

Ubuntu :: Resize Window Border To Small?

May 13, 2010

This isn't a HUGE deal, just a little annoying. When I move the cursor to the edge of a window to resize it, i only get the resize arrow in a very small area and it takes me several tries to get it just right. Is there anyway to broaden the resize area threshold or something?

Ubuntu :: Metacity Window Border Disappeared?

May 30, 2010

I recently installed KDE on my Ubuntu setup to try kubuntu by installing the kubuntu-desktop package.I decided I didn't enjoy KDE as much as GNOME, so I went back into GNOME and uninstalled the kubuntu-desktop package via Synaptic.That didn't remove ANY of the stuff that it brought in, so I searched for the keywords "kubuntu" and "kde" and uninstalled all packages but one (libdecoration0) to get rid of all the KDE-mess.Now, after logging back in...THERE IS NO WINDOW BORDER. AT ALL.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Compiz Won't Change Window Border

Jul 3, 2010

(This started after I upgraded from Ubuntu 8 ) Everytime I enable desktop effects (system -> preferences -> appearance) compiz replaces the pretty New Wave window border with the ugly Emerald glass window border (custom border) that I used on Ubuntu 8.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Select A Window Border

Oct 30, 2010

On my system (Ubuntu 9.x -> 10.x) I have always had the problem of not being able to select the edges of a window in order to change the window size. It seems that the 'hot' zone, which defines the window border selection area, is only 1 pixel wide. I find it very difficult to position the mouse pointer over this zone. Even if I am successful (which usually takes more than 20 tries), as soon as I begin to depress the mouse button, the merest movement causes the pointer to move off the 'hot' zone - and selection fails. The only work-around I have found is to select a corner point of a window -which seems much less sensitive - and then drag the window border in either a vertical or horizontal direction, rather than diagonally. But this is counter-intuitive and unsatisfactory.

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar/window Border?

Apr 28, 2011

I just installed 11.04 and was installing everything I wanted fine till I got to installing compiz. It installed fine and ran for a few minutes before my window borders disappeared entirely (see the attached screenshot). I've since tried running metacity --replace, but this makes unity disappear, so I'm left with my open windows only.

PS; I heard that there can be issues with ATI/AMD. Alas, that is my exact setup. I am urged to install proprietary drivers, but they fail to download.

Ubuntu :: Changing Task Bar Color?

Just upgraded to Lubuntu 11.04. Holy mother of God, the default theme is an atrocity. It looks like somebody puked blue on my desktop. I changed the theme but cant figure out how to change the color of the task bar on the bottom of the screen.

(On a completely unrelated note, Firefox now thinks Im British and wants to change color to colour....weird.)

Ubuntu :: Changing The Color Depth From Whatever It Is Now To 24bit?

Dec 29, 2010

I am trying to create a media server, and I decided to try out Ubuntu, but I'm having trouble figuring this out. I have taken a suggestion that I got from another forum, but it did not work.

I'm using version 10.4 and I have to get it to at least 24 bit so I can run XBMC. I have a friend that works for red hat and he said I needed to find the restricted driver or something, but I can't find it, and he doesn't know where it might be on Ubuntu. So, does anyone know how I can change my color depth to 24bit?

Red Hat :: Changing Bash Color Prompt?

Mar 24, 2010

I was attempting to change the bash shell color prompt on my RHEL / CentOS 5 server. When I login as my user account on my server I can see my 'PS1':

[carlos@srv1 ~]$ echo $PS1
[u@h W]$

I want to change my PS1 to:

PS1='[e[1;32m][u@h W]$[e[0m] '

When I look in ~/.bashrc, I don't see my 'PS1' line so I am confused and wondering how I do this on RHEL / CentOS systems.

Ubuntu :: Changing Gtk Slider Color On Scrollbar Hover?

Sep 12, 2010

I'm using the Human-Clearlooks theme on Lucid (Gnome) with compiz/nvidia driver.

I'd like to have the scrollbar sliders a bit (only) more visible. Ideally, it would switch orange when I hover it with the mouse, and stay gray otherwise. This is because my screen is quite large, and when the slider is small I find it difficult to find its position.

1. I opened the gtkrc file and set colorize_scrollbar = TRUE in the engine "clearlooks" block. Now the scrollbar sliders are always orange. I'd really like to have them orange only on hover.

2. There is a "clearlooks-scrollbar" style. I tried adding (fg|bg|base|text)[] in it. I found that:A. fg[] is for the arrow within the top and bottom square boxes

B. bg[NORMAL] and bg[INSENSITIVE] define the color of the box containing the arrow (or if colorize_scrollbar = FALSE, the color of the whole scrollbar, including the square boxes and the slider itself)

C. bg[PRELIGHT] is the color of the box containing the arrow when hovered

D. bg[SELECTED] is the color of the slider (permanent)As it was most unsuccessful, I tried to force the murrine engine for the scrollbars only. Now with bg[PRELIGHT] = @selected_bg_color I get something fairly close to my expectations.

Only I'd like the bar to be pre-lighted not only when the mouse is over the slider, but as soon as it is over the scrollbar. Here I must say I'm at loss, and I really can't find how to do it.

how to change the slider color on scrollbar hover?

Ubuntu :: Changing Gnome-panel Text Color?

Mar 22, 2011

I have a theme that looks like this.

Unfortunately, it makes the globalmenu and clock applets disappear on my gnome-panel. My panel is set to system theme, though when I choose a solid color I can get the hidden text to show up. I want to preserve the system color so I need to change the text color somehow. Also, I don't know why it uses that bluish color when clicked on since I never defined such a color in the appearance settings.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Color Of The Panel Menu Background?

I know how to change the colors of the panels. But on the parts were the ubuntu symbol, the menus (Applications, Places, and Systems), the date and time, and the indicator applets is, they do not change at all. And pretty much the same problem on the bottom panel.
