I installed some special programs a time ago and added several extra repositories. After trying those apps, I uninstalled them and the according repos.

For a several amount of time, I have wierd looking system windows (system settings e.g.). How can I restore the default system apps?

Udate: This is not related to the selected theme. Those themes worked well before, I think, the whole system settings app changed, but I'm not quite sure. If you can compare your for e.g. audio settings tool with mine, you will see a difference.

  • What was the program you used to change settings with? You can also try to set the Ambiance theme back with Systemsettings > Appearance. – Jacob Vlijm Mar 27 '14 at 12:44
  • I updated my question, that this is not a theme issue. – Aykut Çevik Mar 27 '14 at 12:48
  • Ok, but what was the program? – Jacob Vlijm Mar 27 '14 at 12:49
  • I have no clue, which installtion has overwritten my system apps. Is there any possibility to revert the system-settings application? – Aykut Çevik Mar 27 '14 at 12:51
  • do you remember any theme editing application? Obviously the windowbackroundcolour is pimped :) Is that the only change you notice? – Jacob Vlijm Mar 27 '14 at 12:55

There is a couple of related bugs that describe this behaviour. See e.g. here. As far as I can tell, it is a bug that comes and goes. You may try to disable scroll overlay bars as described here.

  • sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar overlay-scrollbar-gtk2:amd64 overlay-scrollbar-gtk3:amd64 Solved the problem! Thanks. – Aykut Çevik Mar 27 '14 at 14:55

I think installing "gnome-tweak-tool" then using that to change the theme to "Ambience" will fix this.

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Run gnome tweak tool from terminal by issuying the command: gnome-tweak-tool
