Corrupted GTK theme for Ubuntu Tweak

Asked by Swarnendu Biswas on 2012-02-08

I am facing a problem related to corrupted gtk theme with Ubuntu Tweak. My default theme is Ambiance under Unity. It works fine for most applications like Chrome, Firefox, Nautilus, etc. However, for applications such as Gnome tweak tool, Ubuntu Tweak, etc. the gtk theme is completely black and dark. That is the background window color, making viewing the window text very difficult.

This is happening with Gnome shell also. I have tried resetting gnome and Unity settings, reinstalling light themes, but it didn't work.

This is a link containng a screenshot that I posted in

Also, note that I am not facing this issue with other themes such as Adwaita.

This is a bug of the development light-themes of Ubuntu 12.04.

So I can't control the behavior, please wait for the theme fix from the upstream Ubuntu.
