Can anyone point out how I can go about changing the colours of the Shutdown menu and the Time/Calendar dropdowns within the gnome desktop, accessed from the top bar. Not sure what you'd officially call these, please see images as to what I'm referring to.

enter image description here

Ideally I'm looking to change the background colour of these menus, highlighted in yellow, and also change the accented blue colour, highlighted in green.

  • Hate to comment on my own thread to revive this, but anyone got any ideas on this? Can't seem to fine anything on it to help out. – Klicker May 11 '17 at 21:24
  • Hi! You need to change the gnome-shell theme css file for this. There are no easy way to get around this – Anwar May 14 '17 at 13:26

For the volume bar i can modify it with this :

-slider-active-background-color: rgb(180,208,81);

I looked for to change the color of the active day too (like in your example) in the gnome calendar but i can't find it.

I find a way to change the focus background color on the other days but not the active and the same day number after or before (in your example the 6 may is in blue, but if you change months, like June, the 6th June will be in blue too) and i want to change the background color too.

I want to change the color of the size the windows gonna have when you split it (like in the picture), if anyone knows this please share.

size focus windows color

  • i found for the last one, it's : .tile-preview { background-color: rgba(180, 208, 81, 0.5); border: 1px solid rgb(180,208,81); } but the calendar active day background still unknown – dj0dj0 Jun 1 '17 at 11:45
