It severely affects packages beyond the one that causes the flaw.

I accidently changed the status of this bug to New.
Can someone please change it back to Triaged.
I'm very sorry, I was just getting to know launchpad and didn't know clicking there would change it's status.

I have also a theme problem.
After testing environment kubuntu I removed kubuntu desktop because I prefer unity .
I use applications like gwenview using KDE dependencies in ubuntu desktop unity .
I uninstalled KDE , but since I have problems in my display unity with the environment theme ambiance was certainly modified by installing KDE:
- The menu at the top right (to stop the pc or close the session)have the text black on a dark background
-The Icons that represent files in file explorer are those of kde .

Here is a link to the screenshot of my screen unity copy:

I tried to reapply the ambiance default theme with Unity Tweak Tool but it changes nothing.

Can you help me to correctly reset the ambiance theme of unity .

Confirmed for dark/black windows.

Although I suspect if we asked Design they would say "Won't Fix". But let's ask.
