I'm using the the gnome flashback session (metacity) in Ubuntu 14.04. The default theme is the ambient theme. If you set a gnome panel to not expand, the handles are looking ugly: As can be seen in this screenshot. How can I theme/change this?


1 - install ubuntu

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa 
$ sudo apt-get update 
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

2 - find & configure

Go to app search look for 'ubuntu-tweak' .
Open it then .
go to tweaks .
Then Unity .
Make it comfortable 'read then edit'
enter image description here

if that didnt workout with you try to reset unity then configure it
reset unity

$ unity-reset
$ setsid unity
