I've upgraded Ubuntu to 11.04 and replaced unity with gnome shell. Now the controls and window decorations look like if there was "no theme".

I have an ATI HD 3470 and I don't use proprietary drivers (fglrx).

What should I do to get the nice default gnome shell theme?

Try this, it worked for me:

sudo apt-get purge gnome-accessibility-themes

sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-standard

Then open the Gnome Tweak tool listed above and select Adwaita

  • That's it! Works perfectly! Hope @grawity will excuse me for changing the accepted answer to this as this really helped. Thank you. – František Žiačik Apr 29 '11 at 21:54
