    Graphics change despite no updates

    Hi,

    For some odd reason my theme changed for no reason. I didn't change any settings nor did I update anything. This is what it looks like now:



    How can i revert it back to the original (I use the New Wave theme) and does anyone know the cause?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. I tried that before. It doesn't reset it. And nah, I didn't play with any settings. Normal shut down.

    Turn on the next day and it's changed

    You can entertain... I really enjoyed that statement LOL.

    To the OP:

    Why can't you reset it? Are there any themes listed in the Themes Tab or is it empty? What happens when you click on any of those?

    Re: Graphics change despite no updates

    are you losing or missing the controls max/min/close etc?
    I have a similar problem that happens. when I hit printscreen I lose the window controls and the window borders. It also happens at other random times. I have changed the memory and the mobo same problem.
    Don't want to hijack your thread but if it's the same/similar problem it may have the same root cause.

    Thanks for replies!

    Nah nothing at all.

    Are there any themes listed in the Themes Tab or is it empty?
    Yes, all the themes are there. Initially when i turned on everything was with the weird theme. Then i clicked New Wave again and it got the borders working, but not nautilus' theme.

    Just checked it again. And on the third restart it's back to normal. Did nothing at all last time either. Very very weird. No changes whatsoever, and this is the third restart since i first noticed the problem, so on the first two nothing changed. Very, very weird , but seemingly back to normal
