I notice that my shell on my lock screen wasn't the same theme was when I'm logged into my user. I was wondering if that is changeable into a dark mode or even a specific shell theme that I have downloaded.

Things I've tried to change to dark mode:

Edit the stylesheet in /usr/share/gnome-shell/modes/ubuntu.json from

{
    "parentMode": "user",
    "stylesheetName": "Yaru/gnome-shell.css",
    "themeResourceName": "theme/Yaru/gnome-shell-theme.gresource",
    "debugFlags": ["backtrace-crashes-all"],
    "enabledExtensions": ["ubuntu-dock@ubuntu.com", "ubuntu-appindicators@ubuntu.com", "desktop-icons@csoriano"]
}

to

{
    "parentMode": "user",
    "stylesheetName": "Yaru-dark/gnome-shell.css",
    "themeResourceName": "theme/Yaru/gnome-shell-theme.gresource",
    "debugFlags": ["backtrace-crashes-all"],
    "enabledExtensions": ["ubuntu-dock@ubuntu.com", "ubuntu-appindicators@ubuntu.com", "desktop-icons@csoriano"]
}

However, this didn't work.

Thanks a lot!

  • @PRATAP I tried that one out but it didn't have any effect... – Drilon Jul 3 at 19:13
  • have you configured anything on default Ubuntu 20.04 Installation? – PRATAP Jul 3 at 23:05
