I have a corrupted Ambiance theme... the background of the top menus is grey :( i must have done some fiddling...

If i choose another theme, it seems to work fine, but I want Ambiance :D what do you think i could try?

I already tried downloading ambiance again, but same issue happens. I tried to download gnome color chooser, but it doesn't do nothing, so i guess maybe i can change something else... but where?

Here's a screenshot:

Are you using 12.04 beta? And if so..are you using Classic Gnome? Because then you smashed into a bug. If not..try reinstalling light themes (sudo apt-get remove light-themes).
