This seems to be a problem with GTK themes not based on the Unico engine. It happens also with Numix or Arc for example.

It's important to notice that a lot of themes are affected by this because a lot are based on adwaita and similar themes!

Both arc and numix themes are also affected.

Just checked with cinnamon 3.0 and that works just fine. So it's 100% a unity/compiz issue.

A fix is already been proposed.

I just tested in Xenial. It fixed this and other bugs (#1553165, #1575527, #1574689, #1574689).

After adding proposed, this: sudo apt-get install unity/xenial-proposed, is still not working. Am I missing something?

Khurshid Alam (khurshid-alam) wrote :

@joakimkoed Don't try install like that. Instead, add proposed repository and run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity". Its working fine here: http://i.imgur.com/DmN3zRA.gif
