How to change the color themes in gnome 3? Anyone? (Note using 11.10)

  • Hi, I may not understand question properly. However if you are looking for theme tab -- then install gnome-tweak-tool and try it. – wisemonkey Oct 1 '11 at 0:30
  • You have to edit the theme itself, look at /home/user/.themes/ if you have installed any GTK3 themes FOR the Gnome Shell themes look here askubuntu.com/questions/62495/… – Uri Herrera Oct 1 '11 at 1:33
  • Also since I have the Kubuntu-desktop installed, I just went to K-desktop settings and changed the color theme there while I had gnome3 running – user140115 Mar 14 '13 at 1:34
  • Is the GNOME 3 project so new, that they cannot safely include a few themes in their settings panel without the need for installing additional software? – Lonnie Best Apr 22 at 14:08

You have to directly edit the theme. The themes are located under /usr/share/themes. For the Adwaita theme, the colors are declared in the gtk.css file.

  • So the gnome theme is written in traditional css? or is it an altered version? – leech Nov 7 '12 at 15:25
  • Is there a way to preview the changes? – Calmarius Jan 31 '13 at 22:48
  • @Calmarius No, you just have to edit and then try it out. – bntser Feb 1 '13 at 4:10

A simpler way:

sudo apt-get install gnome-colors gnome-tweak-tool

Then, run the command in the terminal:

gnome-tweak-tool

Then go to theme/icon theme.

The new way:

sudo apt-get install gnome-colors gnome-tweak-tool

Then, run the command in the terminal:

gnome-tweaks

Then go to theme/icon theme.

  • Wow, I did this an the Yaru-Dark theme is awesome! – Lonnie Best Apr 22 at 15:06
