Description of problem:
Some themes, such as Crux, have additional settings for things like color and
button arrangement. When selecting Crux in the theme selector, no way for the
additional settings is ever presented.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preferences->Theme->Window Border
Actual Results: No theme specific settings available.
Expected Results: Theme specific settings should be available.
We would not make a UI change like this in Red Hat specific patches, it would
need to be done on the gnome.org level - http://bugzilla.gnome.org/
However, I can't think of a way to implement this feature, short of themes
coming with some sort of compiled control panel dedicated to the theme, which
seems unlikely. A generic "Colors" tab will probably be added to the theme
control panel Details dialog at some point, but that won't be theme-specific.
BTW, window button order isn't a function of the theme with metacity, it's a
preference you can set in gconf-editor.
Closing here, you might open it on gnome.org to see if someone there can
think of a way to implement it.
