Since I installed EndeavourOS I’ve switched desktop environments a few times. I always tried to follow the arch wiki, but now that I’ve switched to gnome I found myself facing an issue. I cannot get rid of this dracula-like theme.
I tried to remove/backup any xfce4 and plasma configurations that might be interfering, as well as removed my ~/.themes folder, but it did not work and I ran out of ideas. Does anyone know how can I remove this theme and restore adwaita as the default?
That seems a bold statement. Could be, some KDE remnants are still active. So a reinstall would give you a fresh GTK based GNOME-look, unless someone (only you) can replicate everything that was installed on KDE systemwise and be really sure to have had it removed…
You could try the following command to reset your desktop settings to default:
dconf reset -f /org/gnome/
Fore more, please read through this article to see what the command above does:
The command doesn’t reset just Gnome desktop settings, but also any application that stores its settings using dconf in /org/gnome/, like Gnome Terminal, Files, Weather, Software, Rhythmbox, Disks, Evolution, Gthumb, and many others.
You could also install dconf-editor to help you see what applications stores their settings in /org/gnome.
Hello @avgdd, First you have to decide which direction you choose. Maybe I’m less knowledable then the members of inner circle here.
Do you (dare to) use Gnome Extensions?
If have not, and yes, yay -S extension-manager
and then use Extension Manager (blue) instead of Extensions (green icon).
add User Themes extension at least.
Download from https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1403328 and extract to ~.themes
It’s just an example. Then you can take back the control over your themes I hope. Edit: I’m so careless!
You could transfer (not all!) but your important files in user-home to the new user and chown them to the new user. After, delete the old user. The risk with that is, you could again copy some unwanted files resulting in the “bad look” you had before. What definitely needs to be omitted are files from standard KDE apps…
Hahaha sure, definitely. I am reluctant into moving users, as I feel like that is the kind of thing I would mess up and end up having to format my computer, so I would rather leave that as a last resource.
