In an attempt to ease the navigation between the many windows on my desktop, I would like to give each one of them a different title color. Is this possible?

I have 12.04 with Unity.

But I suspect it isn't possible because there just one window manager running. – user25656 Dec 31 '12 at 12:33

It is not currently possible without programming compiz or a compiz plugin.

compiz plugin seems like a good option - what exactly do you mean? – Erel Segal-Halevi Jan 11 '13 at 7:30
A plugin to compiz which changes colours of windows and/or decorations. – Martin Owens -doctormo- Jan 12 '13 at 3:47
And how can I find and install such a plugin? – Erel Segal-Halevi Jan 12 '13 at 17:13
It would need to be developed (created) before you could find it or install it. – Martin Owens -doctormo- Jan 16 '13 at 17:44
