Description:

Yeah I know, this is waaay too retro. Anyway, for those crazy old Amiga-lovers like me, here's a faithful remake of the old WB 1.2/1.3 window look.

To make this look like the original put this into your terminal:

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "close:minimize,maximize"

And to return back to the defaults:

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

I recommend using a Topaz font you can download here:

Have fun!

At one time I owned the A1000, A500, and A2000.

I put together a quick and dirty index.theme to combine your GTK and metacity themes. It also takes care of the button arrangement so you don't have to mess with gconf.

<-- Begin index.theme -->
[Desktop Entry]
Type=X-GNOME-Metatheme
Name=Kickstart1.2
Comment=Amiga Kickstart 1.2 theme
Encoding=UTF-8

[X-GNOME-Metatheme]
GtkTheme=Kickstart1.2
MetacityTheme=Kickstart1.2
IconTheme=Humanity-Dark
CursorTheme=redglass
ButtonLayout=close:minimize,maximize
<-- End index.theme -->

Naturally, we need to replace the icon set, but the rest works beautifully.

I haven't tried the Topaz font yet only because I'm using UTF8 and its readme strongly suggests ISO-8859-1/15.

Thanks for your comment! I still own my beloved A500 bought in 1987, and still running happily!
Thanks for the trick with index.theme, I had no idea you could put button order in there. Yeah, the font looks nice, but I have no clue about that messed up codepage stuff. I tried to fix the font with fontforge, but just produced even more messed up files. Really sorry, I have no time at the moment to work on these things any more, having to care for my little son...
