After upgrading to 19.04 I've noticed that some dialog windows are still white even while using a dark theme (Adwaita-dark in my case).

Power Off window

Is there any way to make these windows dark like the rest of the theme?

  • Ddi you enable global dark theme? – Dr_Bunsen Jun 20 '19 at 7:51
  • Yes, but it didn't work. – Dima Kadanov Jun 20 '19 at 13:33

The dialog you are seeing is themed according to your current Gnome Shell theme, not according to the current application theme.

By default, the gnome shell theme is dark, black. That you have a white dialog tells me you have a custom Gnome Shell theme active. You will need to change that to a dark theme.

Because you appear to have a custom Gnome Shell theme, I suppose you know how to set and change a Gnome Shell theme.

  • Hm, but I've never changed it from default, never even tried setting any custom theme. So, as you say, by default it should be dark/black, and yet it's not. – Dima Kadanov Jun 20 '19 at 6:10
  • Never tried to set any custom theme? Then you should be using the Yaru theme, the default theme of Ubuntu 19.04. In previous versions, Ambiance was the default theme. Anyway, the answer stands: the color of that dialog is determined by the Gnome Shell theme. – vanadium Jun 20 '19 at 7:12
  • I meant I never tried to set any custom shell theme, the option for that is locked out by default anyway. Thanks for drawing my attention to the whole shell theme thing though. I guess I'd just find the one that matches Adwaita-dark now. – Dima Kadanov Jun 20 '19 at 14:22
  • Could you post a screenshot of the "Appearance" tab of Gnome Tweaks? This will indicate how the current shell theming is set. – vanadium Jun 21 '19 at 7:38
  • Sure, here it is – Dima Kadanov Jun 21 '19 at 19:17
