Gnome, change theme top bar always floating

I change my theme in Gnome to vimix. the top bar looked normal. When i restarted though it was suddenly floating. It stays floating even if i change to a theme i know doesn’t have floating top bar even if i restart as well.

The top bar is dependent on the GNOME Shell theme, not the GTK theme. In Tweaks > Appearance, what Shell theme are you using?

By the way, Vimix does not have a floating top bar.


Yeah im using vimix as shell, and i guessed that vimix didn’t have floating either. I don’t know where it comes form since i dont have any theme with a floating top bar

Maybe an installed extension? What’s the output of:

gnome-extensions list --enabled

Just thought i should mention problems persist if i deactivate extensions

Please paste the output here, not a screenshot.

When pasting terminal output, highlight it and use the Preformatted text </> button, not the Quote " button.

Alternatively, add three backticks ` above and below the text:


Please edit your post accordingly.

Sorry relatively new, it is fixed now

No, it’s not. :wink: Read the instructions again.

Tip: Highlight the text, click the Quote button to remove the formatting, then click the Preformatted text button.


Damn, i’m sorry, jinxing it by saying that it should be fixed

You got it now. :+1:

As you discovered, none of those extensions would make a difference. Perhaps you have a CSS file somewhere overriding the shell theme. What did you do / install right before you noticed it other than installing Vimix? Does it still occur choosing the Default Shell theme?

I found it, remembered i installed flat remix theme as well. I don’t know why but it changes to floating bar regardless if the theme is active or not.
Fixed it by uninstalling the theme (AUR)

Thanks a lot for your help, very nice of you.

Ah, that actually makes sense. Flat Remix is a bit of a mess. Glad you got it sorted.
