Kali Linux 2.0 (x64) system upgrade GUI fix

by on Oct.08, 2015, under Code, Posts

When Kali Linux 2.0 came out I decided to upgrade my laptop to this version through the upgrade process (which took very long keep in mind.. it may have just been quicker to just reload the OS). Upon completion of the upgrade process I noticed the desktop GUI and windows didn’t look quite right. Additionally the theme wasn’t right either. Long story short I had to install these packages to fix the issue:
