I'm having this little problem in all themes I install - the background color of all the window menu items is light-gray instead of the dark I expected.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 and using gnome-config-tool to configure them. I've installed all themes in the .themes folder in my home.

Using Cinnamon and Ubuntu 12.10

How can I solve it?

Are you installing them with sudo? Maybe you'll have to open gnome-config-tool to change light-gray to dark. –  Yamaneko Nov 13 '12 at 2:53
I found out that the problem is with the GNOME version. Mine is 3.6 and the themes doesn't have compatibility with this version. Thank you anyway! –  wlcosta Nov 14 '12 at 1:03
Add it as an answer. You'll be able to accept after two days :) –  Yamaneko Nov 14 '12 at 1:07
