I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 with compiz on a 17" laptop with 1920x1080 display. After the installation the fonts are too small. Even if I change the fonts' size the Close/Minimize/Mazimize icons remain tiny, Is tehre any appropriate theme for high-resolution displays? How can I install it?

You can also try to use the zoom in in Nautilus. In the view menu (or press alt for the HUD if you use Unity and type zoom) select zoom in and adjust to your likes. For a more permanent solution you can do the same in the preferences menu.
