Looking Good – And No Hack Needed

The appearance of Nautilus, System Settings and several other GNOME 3 applications in Ubuntu 13.10 has been improved in a recent update.

A regression in Ubuntu’s default themes, present since Ubuntu 13.04, that has seen GTK+ 3 applications lack correctly coloured toolbars has finally been corrected.

Following the update toolbars are once again themed appropriately when using either of Ubuntu’s default themes.

This update was pushed to Ubuntu a mere day after we showed you how to install a set of “fixed” Ambiance/Radiance themes that fix this issue.

Getting The Fix

If you’re using Ubuntu 13.10 just run Software Updater to get the latest fixes.
