Exhibit A: (Attached)

Ubuntu used to have nice button graphics. (Photo - Lucid left / Meerket right)
Now, well lets just say I don't like them. Anyone know where the image files where/are that would allow me to restore my Lucid buttons in Meerket please.

Many thanks

I don't know but I'd also like the Lucid ones back. These new ones look cheap to me!

Just found them in Lucid.

they are in usr/share/themes/Ambiance/metacity-1

Can I just copy them in to the same(?) folder in Maverick. Do I need all the files in that folder?

Try it :) What's the worst that could happen? :)
Post back the result please!

I believe from experience that this SHOULD work. I've remade the dust icons to better match a blue theme I had (instead of flashing brown).

WooHoo!! Just copy and replace the entire metacity-1 folder and it works a treat!!

Now just need to get the buttons back to the right again!!

Fatality, obviously your buttons will be in the Radiance not Ambiance folder.
Just in case any body else reading this copies the wrong one.

Looks like it changed the rest of metacity. Didn't there used to be a bar under the icons going across the whole screen?

You should only need to copy the proper images over the ones you don't like (i.e. the buttons).

Nice one Migs!

I will have to dig out a Lucid CD from somewhere and grab them.

Cheers mate

Yeah, but there are other 'button states' that didn't exist in the old one. That is why I just copied the whole folder so as to revert to the entire Lucid version.

fatality, if you PM me with an e-mail address I'll send you mine to save you digging about.

Can you post the file here? I'd also like the Lucid window dec's back.
