In 12.04 I used Unity and was able to change the theme with the gnome-tweak-tool.

Since the update to 12.10 I use gnome and try to change the theme however nothing changes except the top bar which I changed in a different way.

I applied the theme with the tweak tool and I logged out and in again, I even tried it with restarting the PC and that didnt work either. I hope You can help me.



Sorry dont know how to put the picture inside -.-


I don't use the default Ubuntu "Gnome" related applications and tools. Ubuntu picks the gnome applications that work best with Unity.

I use the Gnome 3 PPA (https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3) which has the latest and greatest, but this will also make changes to other programs like Nautilus which I personally like, but others might not. Not an exact answer, but if you like running a Gnome desktop like I do. It might be nice although I've personally noticed a lot of the gnome shell extensions aren't working with 3.6 yet.

Hope this helps.
