View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unity- when maximized, close, minimize and max buttons are invisible

the title says it all. Its not that they disappear, as they are still clickable, and in the same order. They are merely invisible it seems. It started a couple of weeks ago, I didnt make any system changes, except maybe updates, so idk how the heck this happened!?

Do the buttons appear when the windows aren't maximized? Try, in terminal
unity --reset

At first glance, I would say you are using Adwaita as your theme. This doesn't work so hot with Unity, because the fallback buttons are black.

Try using Radience if you want a lighter theme.
