Ubuntu 17.04 => There are several threads on this, but in my case nothing helped, I reinstalled unity, resetted icons, I even removed all .conf .dconf etc. stuff from $HOME, nothing helped, it still looks like this:

Working on a notebook gets virtually impossible like this with ubuntu, for every „special“ bit of configuration you are pointed to some control-center, compiz-config-manager, commandline-tools etc. just in order to get a decent workspace set up. A bit frustrating that is 🙁
Forgive me that rant, it just reflects my feelings towards unity-desktop in general.
