Since you did not receive an answer to this question perhaps you would do well to try it on SuperUser? Since this has something to do with OS interaction it's possible a generic method is available. – Mr.Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 18:58

Mathematica ships with it's own Qt libraries. Consider replacing them with the system libraries, then it probabily fits nicely into the Ubuntu layout.
