  • only the systray is like that? you sure it isnt a graphichs driver bug? – Geo Aug 1 '14 at 14:34
  • Yes, icons on the left side or 'Alt+Tab' shows good quality, in Dash panel (using press: 'Super') as well. I'm working with AMDX64 - APU10-5800K (Integrated graphics), but in my old computer (AMD x64 single core). Ubuntu shows the same problem :S Graphic bug...? I think not. – Agustin Cisneros Aug 1 '14 at 16:18
  • The default icons for time/network/volume/etc look fine in the original so it could be something to do with the fiddling you've done with dconf? Short of suggesting doing a reinstall, can you boot your computer with a live CD/USB to see if the systray look okay (and perhaps even install a couple of the other applications to see what their icons look like). – Bernmeister Aug 2 '14 at 1:19
  • Not a solution, but: Most of the applications you mentioned use sni-qt to draw the notification indicator. Might be where the fault lies. Your Chrome notifications indicator is completely fine, btw. That's just how it looks by default. You can modify the icon, but it's quite an involved procedure. – Glutanimate Aug 2 '14 at 3:53
  • Well, first, thaks for all the answers but I think that the problem is on Ubuntu (Unity) because I'm testing now with ElementaryOS 0.2 (Luna) and the icons display so: i707.photobucket.com/albums/ww79/DNELART/5.png except Skype, all others are perfect. Ideas? except change the OS for eOS? – Agustin Cisneros Aug 2 '14 at 11:15
