Ever since I upgraded to 13.10 the icons in the Unity panel appears in Gnome's default theme instead of Unity.

Here's a screenshot:

Both the unity tweak tool and the gnome tweak tools show that the selected icon theme is Ubuntu-mono-dark.

Executing setsid unity fixes the icons for the current session, but after logging in again the icons go back to the Gnome default theme.

If memory doesn't fails me, the name of the Icon theme isn't Ubuntu-mono-dark but Humanity.

I do have an icon theme named humanity, but switching to it doesn't seem to resolve the problem – darwish Nov 2 '13 at 15:57
