I recently installed ubuntu tweak and a pack of icons called fs-icons-ubuntu. Soo far it worked well. But! When i costumize my theme, i can't get the normal look of ambiance theme with gray bar in the top of the windows.

I already tried a bunch of configs and i still don't get the gray in the top window.

So does anybody know what is might happening?
