GNOME doesn't really like the Unity theme. There are two ways to fix this. You can either switch to the default GNOME theme, or install Numix, which is sort of like a flat version of Unity. You'll need to install the GNOME Tweak Tool first. Open a terminal and run sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool. Use the GNOME theme Search for "Tweak Tool" and ...

It seems the answer is to "use the bundled version", but ivant did not state which version that was or where he installed it from. I assumed the one from the Software Center which is version 2.20.0 but I installed that and it is not using the gtk theme either.

If you are using Xubuntu, open Theme Configuration. If you have only installed Xfce from another desktop environment, then you can paste sudo apt-get install gtk-theme-config in terminal to install. Launch the application and change the top category Custom highlight colors to your preferred colors. Log out and log in again. This should fix the issue on ...

I assume you use gnome-terminal. If that isn't he case, please edit your question with the required detail. Open a gnome-terminal window. In its menu bar, open the Edit menu and select Profile Preferences. A window should pop up where you navigate to the tab Colors. You will see the terminal appearance options like in the screenshot below: You should ...

I tried this under ubuntu 14.04.

I found a "solution". By default the environment variable QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME is being set to appmenu-qt5. Exporting kde instead fixes the problem if you try to start programs via Terminal. However even adding this to .xinitrc or something else, this will just get overridden (probably by the plugin). Meaning the changes won't be permanent. ...

Reason: Happens because gtk3's client side decorations do not play well with ubuntu. Workaround: Add this to your ~/.profile export GTK_CSD=0

I assume that you installed the theme using the OpenBox Configuration Manager ("Menu → Preferences → OpenBox Configuration Manager") and then in the lxpanel settings (Right Click on Panel → Panel Settings) you set "Appearance: Background: System theme". However: the theme you configure with that OpenBox Configuration Manager is just for the window borders, ...

You can do it by replacing the parameters in nautilus.css that can be found in /usr/share/themes/(your_theme)/gtk-3.0/apps/nautilus.css you should do this as root sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/(your_theme)/gtk-3.0/apps/nautilus.css

No. At least not without manually creating a Cinnamon theme that looks like the Unity theme. Cinnamon is a fork of Gnome Shell while Unity is a desktop shell that Canonical built on top of Metacity or compatible window managers (e. g. Compiz). The two are not compatible in any way. I'm not aware of any automated conversion method.

Okay with some troubleshooting I have found how to do this however this could be dangerous. To install xfce-theme-manager on xubuntu 15.10 or later it requires editing sources. su apt-add-repository ppa:rebuntu16/other-stuff apt-get update apt-get install gksu //This allows shell applications to be ran as root gksudo thunar In the file manager ...

I am using canon mg6170. I have the same problems as you do. To be precise, I got a driver from Canon which print almost correct color. It cannot be used smoothly because bugs turn up when using rear tray and also it offer very few adjustment options. If i use guten-print driver, no bugs except printing dark color image similar to your situation. The problem ...

I solved it (atleast it seems like a fix). After typing compiz --replace, most of the Unity desktops was like it should be but some things were still strange and I would have to type this command everytime I started Ubuntu. There seems to be a problem with the copnfig so with the desktop beeing "normal" again I first typed dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ to ...

Every application installed with dpkg or apt-get has a *.list file in /var/lib/dpkg/info folder. Those files list everything associated with that application, including images. According to /var/lib/dpkg/info/steam.list, there is /usr/share/pixmaps/steam_tray_mono.png file, which is the icon you wish to change. You could take that image and replace it with ...

You could try this, and enter this from the terminal: dconf replace -f /org/compiz unity --reset-icon &disown sudo dkms-reconfigure unity and it might work fine this way.

Basically, you cannot change Steam's menu icon. You can temporarily replace it with another icon, but it will eventually get replaced with whatever Steam wants it to be, during an update. You should probably contact Steam support to complain that the Steam tray icon does not work well with light themes, and hopefully they will fix it in an update, so it ...

It seems you've accidentally installed the GNOME desktop environment. While I personally like it much more than Unity, I can see why you might hate something if it forces its way onto your computer. To get back to Unity (what you had before), you need to switch back to it. First, however, you need to make sure that lightdm (the login screen to go along with ...

It looks like you're running gnome. On the login screen select the DE icon and click Unity, if you don't get that option, do sudo apt-get install unity.

Have a look in the location: /usr/share/icons. That's where most icons are located by theme. You might need to look around a bit but think that would be the best place to look. Good luck!

A solution found in this thread. For those who're facing the same issue, you can install Unity Tweak Tool from Ubuntu Software Center. But unfortunately, it won't help much as it changes the icons only, not the overall appearance. :-(
