Ubuntu: Changing window title color on Utopic



Question:

I'm using 14.10 Utopic Unicorn since today, and I can't find a way to change the title bar color (the bar containing the app's name) and the top bar, both are gray-black by default, it's - in my opinion - very sad and ugly.

Can anyone help?


Solution:1

change by using the theme configuration application (gtk-theme-config) under the Settings Manager; simply turn Custom Highlight Colors "Off" and click "Apply". Of course, if you wish, you can change the highlight color to something you like better than the default.

You can also use a custom theme. There are many of them at http://gnome-look.org/ as well as http://compiz-themes.org/ to name a couple.

Perhaps you can find one that appeals to you. Themes can be changed via Appearance in system settings.

Appearance You could also use tweak tool or Unity Tweak tool. Available in the Software center.

TweakTools

Its really easy to do that ! Just right click on the desktop and select change background image from the menu. Then a window will open up.There you will see a simple option to change themes. The name of your current theme is Radiance, Change it to Ambience to get a whitish bright new theme for your title bars.
If you want to customize it more than this, Then you might need Unity Tweak
