I recently installed ubuntu-gnome-flashback on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and after logging in to GNOME Flashback (Compiz), my top bar, menu, and windows look like this.

This is not the standard GNOME2 look that I'm supposed to get (which should look something like this), so I'm not sure what's going on. Moreover, I now get the same weird graphics in the top panel if I switch back to the default Unity desktop. What's going on, and how do I fix it?


In first screenshoot you are using Adwaita theme. In second screenshoot Ambiance theme is used.

Install gnome-tweak-tool, there will be option to change theme.
