Question Is it possible to change the default Gnome Window Edge width for ALL windows???


Is there any Gnome or X-windows tweaking expert out there that knows how to change any existing Gnome 2.30.x Theme setting so that I can change the default width of ALL Window edges...

I would really like to make ALL window default edges to be at least 3 to 5 pixels to make them much easier to size with the Mouse.. The default width of 1 or 2 pixels is way to small on hi-res laptop screens.. I have a 17" screen @ 1920x1200.

While i'm at it, does any one know where these Gnome (or X) Windowing system settings get documented in completeness?

I'm already a keyboard shortcut expert and know about the default Alt+F7 and Alt+F8 to size/move windows with the arrow keys..but i still need to use the mouse in many scenarios and the narrow window edge drives me nutz!

Thanks, Heston.

Using a google site search:

Google: "theme create site:library.gnome.org/users/"

I found the info I was looking for on the official Gnome site in the Administrator documentation section:

The Intro docs URL that talks about creating your own or modifying existing theme settings
http://library.gnome.org/admin/syste...mes-15.html.en

And the detailed settings file docs
http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/unstable/index.html
