Giant window title bars on openSUSE 11.4 with Gnome 3
I just recently installed openSUSE 11.4 with Gnome 3, and I've been trying to get it set up in a way I like. I decided to try to download a couple window decoration themes from the Gnome theme repository. I downloaded one, installed it, and decided I didn't like the way it looked, so I switched back to Clearlooks. And now my window title bars are ridiculously large (screenshot), and I don't know how to get them back to normal.

They are the same size no matter which theme I choose.

I tried the fix that I found here:

I adjusted the given terminal commands to edit the Clearlooks xml file, but it did nothing. I then checked the other theme xml files and they all have "title_vertical_pad=0", which indicates that this is not the same problem as is addressed in the above blog post.

Any ideas?

Try gnome-tweak-tool
Try installing gnome-teak-tool and fix it with that. GNOME 3 won't let you in it's System Settings.

Ok, so I'm an idiot. I wasn't actually running gnome 3 :doh: (which I should have realized if I had been thinking at all). I actually ran the upgrade to gnome 3 and the giant window title bars were still there, but then I retried the fix I talked about in the original post and it worked like a charm.

I did install gnome tweak tool, but it doesn't seem to be terribly useful/work very well. I'll probably have to wait a while before easy access to some of the more interesting settings in Gnome 3 becomes available.
