Ubuntu – Radiance theme customization in Ubuntu: edit Window decorator and all!


As you can see in the snapshot below I've made quite a few changes in the Radiance theme, from dusty brown to silver, Alice Blue tool-tip background, among other changes (by editing some files in /usr/share/themes/Radiance/*). But I couldn't manage to change the window decorator colour. How can I change that (preferably by editing the configuration files)?



Almost all fixed but the Chromium Web Browser's tab bar! Ideas?!

(But still unable to fix the colour of tab-bar of the Chromium browser.)

Altogether I've made changes in the files:




/usr/share/themes/Radiance/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml, and


Here's a snapshot of my custom colour palette which includes most of the changes that I made in the colour values in the files mentioned above:

This is what my Ubuntu desktop with the modified Radiance theme looks like:


Edit: "...all fixed but the Chromium Web Browser's tab bar!" [solved]

To modify ChromeGtkFrame (which I referred to as Chromium Web Browser's tab bar) colour changes had to be made in the /usr/share/themes/Radiance/gtk-2.0/apps/chromium.rc file; where I used the colour value #e2e2e2. Here's what Chromium window now looks like:
