I installed Gnome 3 using Ricotz's PPA. Then all windows using sudo and gksu is looking like its running under windows 98. System Specs:

Intel Core 2 duo

Nvidia 6200

Ubuntu 11.04

I also installed the Adwance theme.

  • I don't see GNOME3 in any of ricotz's PPAs, can you edit your question to be more specific as to which PPA you're using? Jun 4, 2011 at 12:44

The answer to this is to fix the gtk2 theme to do that:

  • Click activities

  • Type in appearance

  • Click the first result

and in themes, select Ambiance instead of Adwance

Now this should be fixed
