Resize window color does not match GNOME theme

Bug #159162 reported by David Prieto on 2007-10-31
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

By default, resize is set to "rectangle" mode, which draws a rectangle showing the final size of the window.

This is OK, but it does not follow the theme colour but goes for a shade of blue instead. Could it be that the rectangle showed the same colour as the selection box that appears when you press and drag the mouse in the Desktop?

Actually, I don't think using rectangle mode is ok. :) It's a regression compared to Metacity. Is there a bug about not using rectangle mode by default?

But you're right, the rectangle should follow the theme color. :)

We use the rectangle resize because when using fglrx and xserver-xgl the regular resize does something to kick the driver into software rendering for the Xgl process and then the whole desktop basically grinds to a halt.

Hi David
do you still experience this?, could you please try to reproduce under the development version of Ubuntu, Hardy Heron.

Thanks in advance

Yes, resizing a window creates a blue rectangle even though I'm using the Human theme, which is orange.

This is already assigned an importance of Wishlist. This report isn't really "incomplete" as there isn't much more info that could be provided. I'm changing the bug's status to "Confirmed" since it's a wishlist item (and I can confirm the blue rectangle under Human Theme even now in 8.10 and 9.04 Alpha1).

Can you still reproduce this using Oneiric? I get an orange resize rectangle when resizing, so maybe this has been fixed and should be set to Fix Released.
