    Change titlebar buttons on theme

    Hey, I'm using Elementary OS Luna, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04, and it looks a lot like mac os x except that the titlebar has different buttons (not the red, yellow and green ones). I love the Elementary theme, so I don't want to change that. All I want to change are the buttons. Is there a way of doing this?

    As a side note, I'm looking for the mountain lion titlebar buttons so I can do this. Don't know where to find accurate ones.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    elementary.zip This is the theme folder. What do i replace here?

    If it is possible to substitute a title bar as you can with Ubuntu there are similar themes with the Macish buttons.

    Thanks for the reply. How would I be able to just take those buttons from that theme and use them on the default one?

    I installed pantheon breify and don''t remenber the method if any for changing themes and it seems there is no public forum. As for the theme you may be able to replace the button images in the metacity-1 file . I don't know if the .xml would have to be modified

    Pantheon Tweak is not ready, but according to the link Ubuntu Tweak works changing for themes. http://www.elementaryupdate.com/2013...rys-theme.html
