gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme 'Adwaita'

It seems that gnome-shell now inherits things from metacity settings (it
used to be separate) and thus it's getting oxygen theme by default.

You can override it via the above command, but I think we need to do
some integration testing with oxygen theme to prevent this happening.
