so I’m really new but I have changed the theme in Ubuntu before, I am struggling with manjaro though:
at first I wanted to use the catppuccin theme (can’t use links in my posts?) and installed it via the AUR. figured it doesn’t work because it needs Gnome 43 and manjaro stable is running on 42.5?
then I tried the everforest gnome shell theme (to be found on gnome-looks, can’t post links)
but with all the files in /.themes I still can’t change the theme via gnome tweaks. Am I doing something wrong or does the second theme require gnome 43, too?
side question: why are the gnome-extensions separated from gnome-tweaks? I remember that in ubuntu the extensions were listed in tweaks, too.
Hi, the everforest theme states it works with gnome 42, so you should be good. I found it pretty and just try it via the everforest-gtk-theme-git aur package.
To your side question: gnome changed the default handling of extensions in the newer releases, but for the theme I simply switched drop-downs in tweaks/appearance for it to work. edit: after install, logout/in again for the drop-down to appear.
