Bug Description

I prefer to have the window close/minimize/maximize controls on the left, and have placed them there with Customize Look and Feel.
However, eog places its own window controls on the right (with a different Theme, as well).

I checked the Preferences, in case (as with Chromium) there were an option to "Use System Title Bar and Borders", but found none.

That has to do with the use of CSD/GtkHeaderBar that doesn't work great out of gnome-shell

Upstream Gnome bug:

seems to refer to the same bug:
"When running in Unity, eog looks out of place due to the use of the GtkHeaderBar. If we place the GtkHeaderBar where a traditional toolbar would be and use the window manager decorations it fits in better."

I added my original comment for this bug to their bug #749976, and also attached the same screenshot.
