Ubuntu v12.04.2 Gnome Classic - why can't I tweak colors?
I've been getting frustrated, trying to make the Gnome "Classic" look like less of an eye-sore, since I installed Ubuntu v12.04.2 LTS. Sure, it's got 3 or 4 available themes - but, they're virtually identical. The only variation seems to be that they allowed some light blue to creep in via the title bars in one or two of them. I searched & searched, but can't find any way of adjusting the colors! The default off-white is an EYE-SORE! I'd like to be able to make (at minimum) the same types of color adjustments I was able to make under Gnome v2... They call this an "upgrade"? Sure, lost features are a great upgrade, let me tell ya'. I've even scoured the Synaptics repositories, looking for utility programs to do what Gnome "Classic" has been stripped of the capability of doing. Or, is this (removing the ability to select/adjust colors) just a dodge to force people into the menu-less Unity box? Or, alternatively, is the "upgraded" linux kernel (v3.x) lacking facility for managing colors, and that's why that capability's been stripped out of the DE's?
Okay, I'm back. I feel much better now that I've vented a little. (At least I didn't swear, right? Or, fill the post with character strings along the lines of "^#$%^!@!!!".)
Seriously, folks... Can anybody tell me how to select/control which colors get used in Gnome "Classic"?
Thanks in advance.
