Bug Description

The Close/Minimise/Maximise buttons present for maximised windows (in the space formerly occupied by the distro-branded BFB) are of a different design to those on non-maximised windows.

This creates inconsistency in the step of changing a window from windowed to maximised.

IMHO, ideally there would be more visual similarity between the chrome used in the two states.

Fixing this bug would be one way of fixing bug 828039.

Cont3mpo: thank you for the screenshot. It wasn't actually the bug I originally reported, but is an interesting find and we should fix that too.

(The original report was prompted by the "flat" look of the WM buttons in:

  (b) the curved look seen in Cont3mpo's screenshot

But enter in the same "range", great to know that is to be fix, is a little detail, but i'm obsessed with that kind of little things in the UI. Well, details matter in Precise.

Changed in ubuntu-themes (Ubuntu):
status: New → Triaged
