View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems with Desktop Effects with GTK Theme

February 21st, 2011, 01:48 AM
Okay, so, I downloaded and installed GNOME Elegant theme, and I'm really enjoying it, but I found a snag. I had previously been using Emerald/Compiz as my theme and window decorator, and I had to revert back to Metacity to enable the window controls for Elegant. Because I'm using Metacity, I can't seem to enable any desktop effects (Wobbly Windows, etc) without reverting back to my previous Emerald theme. Does anybody know a work-around?

To use the Metacity theme (window decoration) after you enabled the desktop effects/Compiz, press Alt+F2 and enter:

gtk-window-decorator --replaceGreetings.
