Unhappy Fedora 16 - how to configure window theme?

After I installed Fedora 16, I cannot find the applet that lets me configure window theme (eg, color, icon, button and other styles). Where can I find it?

You need gnome shell tweak tool. The package has similar name, so you can just install it.

The package (and command name) is "gnome-tweak-tool".

Gnome tweak tool only lets you install other peoples themes. How do we exercise our own control over the styles?

You can modify certain aspects of any installed theme as far as I know. See the attached image. Or, is this not what you meant?

Re: Fedora 16 - how to configure window theme?

MATÉ might be a bit overkill if you just want control over themes...

As far as I know, there is no tool for graphically modifying themes in GNOME3 yet, only choosing between existing themes. Themes are built from SVG, XML and CSS files (see /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme and /usr/share/themes/Adwaita for defaults), so Inkscape and a good text editor are all you really need.
