Dash to dock mispositioned at left full panel mode after April update

After the last major updates in Gnome tools (like gnome-shell, qgnomeplatform, gnome-calendar, and other tools), I’ve noticed that the Dash-to-dock was misplaced in Desktop. It seems that this was ‘moved’ down and there’s a space between the Dash-to-dock and top bar. Someone had this same issue?

I have two laptops with Manjaro Gnome, in both, after that updates, the Dash-to-dock presented this problem. In both I used the standard themes (Adwaita and Match).

  • gnome 40.0.0
  • gnome-shell 1:3.38.4+13+gcf9d73ed5-1
  • gnome-shell-extension-appindicator 37-1
  • gnome-shell-extension-arcmenu 8-1
  • gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock 69-4
  • gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-panel 40.r8.ge4a71fa-1
  • gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons-ng 0.15.0-1
  • gnome-shell-extensions 3.38.2-1
  • gnome-terminal 3.40.0-1
  • gnome-themes-extra 3.28-2
  • gnome-tweaks 3.34.1-1
  • gnome-wallpapers 20201020-1
  • manjaro-gnome-extension-settings 20210403-1
  • manjaro-gnome-settings 20210403-1o Gnome (40.0.0)

I cant upload a print with the problem. D:

It’s well known bug.
I’ll upload a picture of it.

Exactly! This is the problem! Thanks @Storm !

Ya, we noticed that issue also. Currently we try to pinpoint it …

We fixed the issue in matcha-gtk-theme


Other themes might already adopted to gnome-shell 40.0, which creates the gap. So list the exact themes and it’s versions, if you have the issue.

For Adwaita based themes here is the simple fix:

#dashtodockContainer.extended #dash {
  border: 0;
  margin: 0;

Mostly place it to your /usr/share/themes/$THEME/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css

Excuse me, how can I fix it for Matcha-dark-sea?
I still can’t see the dash in the dock, and the top bar changed its color to gray and the extensions moved to the side like in the screen. I also can’t see activities and Super key+A doesn’t work, neither Super key.

I get two updates today that fixed the problem to Matcha and Adwaita. Thanks, guys!
