[Bug 1046895] Re: changing theme won't change metacity theme
Ignore that, I can reproduce this bug on up-to-date quantal with Unity.
The control-center correctly sets the theme in gsettings, but it seems
that Compiz is still looking for gconf value
(/apps/metacity/general/theme), and changing it makes compiz change the
** Changed in: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
Status: Incomplete => Confirmed
** Package changed: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu) => compiz (Ubuntu)
** Summary changed:
- changing theme won't change metacity theme
+ Compiz should use gsettings for decorator theme
** Description changed:
- Changing the standard theme from Ambiance to Radiance does not affect
- the gconf key "/apps/metacity/general/theme". It is still "Ambiance"
- while other parts (GTK+ stuff and so on) changed to "Radiance".
+ Steps to reproduce:
+ - Run Ubuntu quantal with Unity
+ - Open the System Settings, go to "Appearance" panel
+ - Set theme to "Radiance"
+ Expected: window decorations should change to use "Radiance" style
+ (light one).
+ Got instead: the Gtk theme is updated, but window decorations are still
+ using "Ambiance" style.
+ How to fix: Compiz should read the decorator theme from GSettings
+ (org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences:theme), not from gconf.
