    This bug is actually related to the Nvidia Driver. To get it fixed without logging out, press Alt+F2, then enter this in the dialog box:
    Code:
    killall -9 gnome-settings-daemon && gnome-settings-daemon
    Ironically, this bug only appears on "fast" systems. At least there's good news there, right?

    Hi, i was having a similar problem, i couldn't change for any new icon set i had installed prior to system installation, but i could change between the ones that come with 10.10. Them i tried the above command and now i can't even change to the ones i could...Anyone have any idea on this. Ah and yes i have a Nvidia GFX card.

    Try running the two parts of the command individually. So, in the Alt+F2 dialog, run:

    Code:
    killall -9 gnome-settings-daemon
    Then open it back up and run:

    Code:
    gnome-settings-daemon
    Did that help?

    Can you try the same thing from the Terminal? Send any output here so we can have a look.
