    window color automatically changed

    I do know what happened but when I started my computer today, I was surprised to find that the window top bar (which has close, minimize etc.) changed colour.



    I do not know how I can change it back to the original default colour (brown). I changed the theme but it did nothing to change this. I am totally surprised and I would appreciate any help.

    in the top menu: system--> preferences--> appearance

    then you can select one of the default theme options, or to simply change the colours you can click the "customize" button and then go to the "colors" tab

    I tried that but there is no option to change the color of the active window title bar. I could change the color of other things such as window area, text box etc.

    I believe it's called hilighted item or object or something to that effect.

    That looks like the default Emerald theme to me.

    Re: window color automatically changed

    Oh..yes...I have emerald installed. I thought it was needed for having Compiz work properly. Is this correct?

    Emerald has been on my system for a while but this change of color happened only today.

    So I reckon I have to change this option within emerald.

    you actually don't need emerald for compiz to function properly, many of us just prefer it. i'm not sure how to make it not run with compiz though if you'd like that i'm sure someone here can help you. if you would just like to change the colour of your emeral theme you can do so by going to

    system --> prefferences --> emerald theme manager

    and then just click edit themes to be given options for colors and such
