View Full Version : Customizing Metacity-2

7th July 2004, 04:37 AM
i went through and i changed settings in metacity to customize the behavior
i started with the Metabox2 theme from art.gnome.org http://art.gnome.org/themes/metacity/226/

the places where settings are held for different themes are in xml files held in the .themes directory of your home directory (i.e. ~/.themes/) for example mine was held in /home/user/.themes/Metabox2/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml

all i did was go through and edit the values for the various tags

here is what mine looks like after being modified
metacity-theme-1.xml (http://picomp314.serveftp.net/metacity-theme-1.xml)

to apply changes you have to restart gnome
