I installed the last updates from update manager some hours ago (I can't remember what kind of updates they were) and now the delorean dark theme 3.9 show improperly in some windows or software, for example in Banshee it doesn't show the dark color, it is with the default color from Unity instead; the window where you select the file name and the folder when saving a download, has the same situation. In addition, when I try to run gksudo nautilus in the terminal I get this messages that I think are related with the problem:

(gksudo:4344): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita", /usr/share/themes/delorean-dark-theme-3.9/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:1797: error: unexpected identifier direction', expected character}'

(gksudo:4344): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory of theme Azenis has no size field

I think the updates have changed something about codes, and now the code in which the theme is written is different from the new one.
