    Themes missing after Nvidia-driver install

    I have just reinstalled 10.10. I used the alternate version since I had to add a fake raid Windows install. Ubuntu is on a OCZ SSD (very nice )

    Install went fine. Update went fine (a bit over 300MB of updates) and everything looked as it should.

    Then I installed the restricted Nvidia drivers for my GTX275 card and then gnome suddenly looks like the attached screenshot. I have tried to change theme and the colour of the top bar changes but that is that. No icon changes etc.

    I have updated to the latest 270.18 drivers but the problem is still the same.

    Any ideas on what to do?

    I did a sudo gconf-editor. Went into apps>nautilus>preferences, and scrolled all the way down. The next to last item should say theme. I edited the item, and remove the word default.

    At first it did not do any thing so I was about to do the a restart script they listed also but after a few reboots everything looked as it should.
