How change window border color of a theme ?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to change the window border color of a theme that is installed with MX distribution

named mx-comfort-dark

I've been told

to edit

/usr/share/themes/mx-comfort-dark/gtk-3.0/dist/gtk-dark.css
/usr/share/themes/mx-comfort-dark/gtk-3.0/dist/gtk.css

I've edited the line with

@define-color wm_border_focused #0f56d9;

with the color that I wanted.. but nothing happen.

then I've been told to compile the theme with this command ->

cd /usr/share/themes/mx-comfort-dark/gtk-3.0/
glib-compile-resources gtk.resource.xml

So

  1. Is this the correct / simpler way ?
      

  2. I don't have glib-compile-resources
    and it seem not available for dw...

    apt list glib*
    
    glib-networking-common/stable,now 2.66.0-2 all [installed,automatic]
    glib-networking-services/stable,now 2.66.0-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]
    glib-networking-tests/stable 2.66.0-2 amd64
    glib-networking/stable,now 2.66.0-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]
    glibc-doc/stable 2.31-13+deb11u3 all
    glibc-source/stable 2.31-13+deb11u3 all

Thank you.

Is this theme Xfwm4-ready? What are the contents of its directory?

ls -l /usr/share/themes/mx-comfort-dark/
