I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 (updated) and gnome-classic (I missed it :3) I've tried setting my icon theme, GTK theme, and window theme in gnome-tweak-tool, as well as Ubuntu Tweak, gconf-editor, and dconf-editor. Even though it shows my selections are selected, the icons and themes stay the same.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated!

Update:

I've tested things out on gnome-shell and Unity, and I have full control over icons and such in those environments, but still no control in gnome-classic. I would really like to figure this out.

Update 2:

It seems that after uninstalling Unity that I have full control over everything. Any explanation (since Unity or some part of it seemed to be the cause) would be really nice.

I seem to be able to do this using the latest (v0.6) of ubuntu-tweak. What have you tried? –  fossfreedom Dec 24 '11 at 18:31
    
When I hadn't uninstalled unity, I had tried using ubuntu-tweak as well. It did nothing. –  Shibumi Dec 25 '11 at 2:15
    
are you sure that the icon theme installed correctly or you have the right directory? –  ccrama Feb 9 '12 at 13:00

You should probably post Update 2 as an answer below and accept it so we know there's a solution to this. If a better solution comes along later, then you can switched the accepted status to that one instead. Thanks! –  WarriorIng64 Mar 27 '12 at 5:07

OP Fixed it by himself:

Any answers on how it happened will be voted up
