I trying to change the Adwaita theme in Ubuntu 12.04, I use this command to change the selection color:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-color-scheme "selected_bg_color:#f27d4e"

But how I change color of button ON/OFF and top line of tabs


I tried with many features in setting.ini in gtk-3.0:

base_color, text_color, bg_color, fg_color, tooltip_bg_color,
tooltip_fg_color, selected_fg_color, link_color, bg_color_dark, fg_color_dark

But nothing works, how can I change these colors?
