I was running Orchis theme on my Desktop. Since the last update the UI went really screwy. I’ve since stripped out all of the Orchis packages and custom installs and reset the Themes settings in tweaks to Adwaita but my UI is still a complete mess.
I have Orchis like part rounded buttons in the new drop down menu for power with settings in it and Nautilus is a complete mess - everything is very pale and spread out - It doesn’t honour light / dark mode whatever I do.
I’ve tried setting themes back to default and to Adwaita-maia-dark and not had any success. Any suggestions beyond a complete system rebuild would be welcome (I’m getting progressively more tempted to try a switch to KDE - Gnome is getting more frustratingly messed up with each update for me).
Here’s a link to what my Nautilus looks like: Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.
Here’s my INXI…

I’ve managed to get it looking passably OK on the Shell side by setting the Shell to “Default” - Anything else just breaks the power menu now. Things like my dialogs still look like Orchis is applied though in part (Empty Wastebasket for example)
Files/Nautilus looks a bit better now across the top, in that the contrast is slightly improved, but the spacing between folders and alignment of text is way off and I still have 2 random “darker blobs” at either side of the address bar. I’m not sure if this is something broken on my system or it’s by design. Either way it’s awful!
To keep it not looking too broken I’ve now had to make everything blue so, rather than just having the Blue highlights on the login screen, Gnome is now forcing us to use Blue icons everywhere as well.
Please tell me this is not by design…
Something is still clearly not right but I can’t see how to make it not broken.
