Bug Description

OS: Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric stable 32bit
Application: gnome-sushi 0.2.0-0ubuntu2

See attached image.
Sushi does not use Ambiance window decorations; rather, it appears similar to the GNOME3 default theme, Adwaita, with its thick decorations and window buttons on the right.

Probably intentional, since it’s a custom window

When you look at Gloobus (another preview application for Nautilus), there you can set the theme to current gtk-theme. I hope that this would be possible for Suhi as well.

I agree with Tobias here. I think the transparent black window is intentional; no other GNOME 3 window looks like that, even under Adwaita. Rather, I find that the issue is more that under Ambiance/Radiance the window seems to try picking up some of its theming from there and it does so poorly (see bugs 937141 and 937148 that I just filed).

Maybe the close button should be modified to look more like the close button from the current theme and sit on the correct (left) side of the window, but IMO the transparent black background should be kept for consistency across themes.

Could somebody affected try to test latest Sushi from git (use ppa:roignac/gnome-sushi) and report back here?

Client decorations can be set in 'org.gnome.sushi.client-decorations' dconf key

I just updated from the provided ppa and tested it out. Seems to be working as intended, and also looks like it'll fix Bug #880262 as well! Check my provided screenshot if you want to confirm everything looks as it's supposed to.

Looks good to me. Lets wait for the fix to settle in official repos -
then I'll change the bug status.

BTW this PPA will contain the latest unmodified code from git, so feel
free to check resolved issues and report bugs to upstream developers.
