Bug Description

[Impact]

The Cinnamon package shipped in the Ubuntu 19.04 repositories is >= Cinnamon 3.8. This version of Cinnamon only supports window border themes which are metacity-3 compliant [1].

The Bluebird theme's upstream git repository has already been updated with metacity-3 compliance [2] but this change has not made its way into the Ubuntu package.

This means that while the package is installable, the theme will not be selectable in Cinnamon's Theme application for selecting window borders (it won't even appear as an option).

[Test Case]

Install `bluebird-gtk-theme`, open the "Themes" application and click on "Window Borders"

Expected result: Bluebird window borders appear as an option, may be selected, and the window borders activate.

Actual result: Bluebird window borders are absent from the window borders selection menu.

[Regression Potential]

This doesn't modify any of the rest of the theme, but only installs metacity-3 support. In using the theme I haven't experienced any oddities.

Sorry, comment #2 should read "Attaching .debdiff for Eoan to this comment"
