I have Debian Wheezy 7.2 x64 with gnome3 Desktop and gnome shell UI
How can you change the theme for Metacity window manager in Debian Wheezy ?
By the way the key apps > metacity > general is not found in gconf editor
With some digging I was able to answer my question but due to reputation I have to add it here :
Just copy the theme folder to /usr/share/themes and you will find the theme in
I've Gnome Shell 3.8.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 and gnome-tweak-tool but I can't change the title bar (I think that it's metacity-1 that does it) with any theme. I can change icons, everything else on the window and the shell theme.
Any ideia? I've tried many theme's from gnome-look.org and I've verified if it has the metacity-1 folder.

If you are boring with your current Gnome Theme, you should try this nice dark theme for Gnome. Its called Dark-Linux 0.6 theme. This theme is applied to any Linux distro as long as Gnome is used as default desktop manager. Want to try this Dark-Linux 0.6 on your Linux?
I run oneiric with fluxbox as the window manager, and gnome-terminal appears to disregard gtk theme. The theme support does work in other gtk applications (for example, in gthumb and in firefox), but changing the theme makes no difference for gnome-terminal. I have oneiric, and I use lxappearance to change the theme. Am I wrong in assuming that gnome-terminal is a gtk application?
