I want to make some changes in the shell theme. I found out that there is a gnome-shell.css file in the theme folder. Can I make some changes here? Do I have to compile it or how do I make it work?
The changes I want to make are some size changes in the grid of the Appicons in the App launcher.
Some googling showed me that there is a css class named icon-grid. I changed the size of it in the css file but nothing happened. Even after a restart. What am I doing wrong?
Because you have the source of it in the link … you do not use the precompiled one that you install via AUR. Is much easier to identify everything via the sass/scss files, you edit those and then compile it as per instructions.
