I want to center my windows title like so:

Human

Instead of having them aligned to the right:

Right

Is there a setting I can change in gconf-editor or is this something controlled by each theme?

i'm not positive but i think this is part of the (GTK, etc) theme... –  quack quixote Apr 19 '10 at 2:11
    
@quack: Thats what I was thinking also, but I figured someone who makes themes might know a setting I could change in the themes gtkrc file. –  Lucas McCoy Apr 19 '10 at 2:26

This is indeed part of the theme. It is not configurable through gconf-editor. Here is an example of how to edit a theme's XML file.

Before:

<draw_ops name="title-text-focused">
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="0" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="1" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="2" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>

   <title color="#f0f0f0" x="0" y="(height - title_height) / 2"/>

</draw_ops>

<draw_ops name="title-text-unfocused">
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="0" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="1" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="2" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>

   <title color="#808080" x="0" y="(height - title_height) / 2"/>

</draw_ops>

After:

<draw_ops name="title-text-focused">
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>

   <title color="#f0f0f0" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(height - title_height) / 2"/>

</draw_ops>

<draw_ops name="title-text-unfocused">
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>
   <title color="shade/#000000/0.8" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(((height - title_height) / 2)+1)"/>

   <title color="#808080" x="((3 `max` (width-title_width)) / 2)" y="(height - title_height) / 2"/>

</draw_ops>
