I'm using the gnome-flashback session (with compiz) in Ubuntu 14.04, and I mostly like the Radiance theme. However, the title bar only changes subtly between the focused window and the unfocused windows, and I'd like to have the focused window's title bar a bright colour.

I have copied the Radiance theme directory to ~/.themes/my-Radiance, and then selected this theme with gnome-tweak-tool. Then changes I make show up, but I can't see what to change to affect the title bar colour.

I have also tried the radiance-colors package available via a ppa, and I couldn't see any changes when I selected one of its themes.

Thanks for any help!


You need to edit metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml to change window decoration style.
