    Exclamation Unity window decoration??? 12.04LTS

    Today I noticed that the window decoration on my system does not have the glow effect stuff. It's just a plain color. I thought that Ubuntu 12.04LTS had something different. Like in the other picture...

    Could you describe "glow effect' better ? Terminal transparency has to be set from Edit > Profile Preferences > Backgrounds .

    The top boarder of the window is plain (1 color). In 12.04 LTS, the top boarder of the window is supposed to be 2 shades of the dark color.

    The shadow in the title bar does't appear for for me either with 3D graphics. I never noticed because I haven't used Ambiance since installation. Stranger yet is my nautilus looks different than the photo you posted, but your settings may be different.

    Do mean the way Nautilus appears or the drop shadow ? I don't about the drop shadow . If the screen shot with the shadow is of the current version of the light-themes package there is a difference. The light themes have changed since they were first released.

    I guess you could call it a drop shadow. What stuff does the light theme package do?

    The light themes package includes the ambiance and radiance themes. I was wondering if the screen shot with the shadow on the title bar was from 12.04 or an older version of Ubuntu ? If it is not from 12.04 that may explain the the difference. If it is then there could be a bug. The ambiance and radiance themes were first released with 10.04 but have been change slightly for each new release.

    I see no shadow in 2D or 3D . It may be a bug but I have no idea what to report . I doubt it is the theme but something else are systems have in common. I use a Nvidia graphics card an the Nvidia current driver. I don't use the ambiance theme but it would be nice to see it as advertised.
