I've upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 15.04 and I now have a problem with my settings. If I go on system settings, there is no problem. But if I click on any icons, I get a partially transparent windows:

Sound settings

I share here the sound setting page in front of a terminal. It's the same problem on each settings page. I've already reboot many times and all updates have been installed.

Try to delete this package gnome-settings-daemon using :

sudo apt-get remove gnome-settings-daemon

    @Braiam --- I think that the Gnome DE and Unity are mildly incompatible. I seem to remember that somewhere along the path the gnome-settings-daemon was forked for Unity --- so maybe some remnant package? (Not sure, because I run Gnome Shell).
