Well, it seems that I've updated smth wrong and now I can't customize the appearance of Ubuntu. Everything works and looks ok with defaults, if I choose anything else the result is like on the pictures.

    Have you tried to set one of the default themes (ambience, radiance) via Appearance settings? – xangua Sep 14 '16 at 1:31
  • @xangua Adwaita and High contrast worked well, there was no problem. I didn't try ambiance, not sure I still have it – Not Astronaut Sep 14 '16 at 6:41
  • @NotAstronaut How did you install Flatabulous? – edwinksl Sep 16 '16 at 5:44
  • @NotAstronaut I've added an answer. Check the answer and let me know if that works – Anwar Sep 19 '16 at 17:30

I believe, you're using an old incompatible theme with your updated Ubuntu.

Since, from your screenshot, you're trying to use Arc theme and Arc Flatabulous theme, I suggest to update them.

You can get the updated Arc themes and many others from Noobslab Theme PPA. Add the PPA using these commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes
sudo apt-get update

Install the themes using these commands

sudo apt-get install arc-flatabulous-theme
sudo apt-get install arc-theme
