I had the same problem. I had sun jdk6 installed. After sudo update-alternatives --config java sudo update-alternatives --config javac sudo update-alternatives --config javaws a restart was necessary for me. Than it worked.

I ran into a similar problem on Ubuntu 14.04. I was unable to change my theme after restarting my computer. I could hack around the issue by logging out and logging back in.
