A lazy work around is to remove these files and build the theme again.

@daniruiz it's fixed now, but now I see a new issue:

@zfkerr you are right :( some old .gitignore files prevented pushing some files. That's why they were missing. I've pushed the fix, tell me if it works now

zfkerr commented on 2021-11-13 10:23 (UTC) (edited on 2021-11-13 10:32 (UTC) by zfkerr)

@zfkerr it is fixed now. Remove your cache (yay -Sc) and reinstall again. Sorry

@daniruiz Still not fixed even when using the latest git clone with makepkg -sri after a your latest fix.

@daniruiz but, gnome-shell-theme.gresource always overwrite when gnome-shell update. If need custom theme for the login screen, I think need give user a script, let user do.

daniruiz commented on 2019-11-17 10:12 (UTC)

@akiirui it needs to be that way so that the whole package now installs to /usr/share/flat-remix-gnome where you can find a Makefile to generate a custom theme for the login screen, depending on the background you have set for it. So, now after installing it runs make && make install to generate the themes and properly install them. Before uninstalling the package, it also runs make uninstall to remove all installed themes

akiirui commented on 2019-11-16 20:39 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-16 20:57 (UTC) by akiirui)

make install in flat-remix-gnome.install, let some files not manage by pacman. Please revert it!

@Angelsoul Ups! the 404 is also fixed now

Angelsoul commented on 2019-09-26 08:56 (UTC)

I get 404 Http Error while trying to download this: <>

daniruiz commented on 2019-09-26 07:02 (UTC)

Thanks @thetazelaser for reporting! it's fixed now

thetazerlaser commented on 2019-09-25 15:07 (UTC)

Latest update blurs all shell text and ui elements for me

daniruiz commented on 2019-08-29 14:33 (UTC)

Thanks @florianmw ! I didn't know about it, I've just added that option disabling strip

florianmw commented on 2019-08-23 06:01 (UTC)

Can you please add following in your PKGBUILD?


Strip is set by default, but since the package has no executables stripping is not needed and it takes ages on my PC to complete.

p00f commented on 2019-07-18 18:58 (UTC)

Is there a way to change the login theme to flat remix after an update? It keeps getting reset to the default one (manjaro)

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-31 21:14 (UTC)

Where's the ubuntu patch that allows it

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-31 21:07 (UTC)

the problem was that pop theme and flat-remix is taking over " /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/assets"

daniruiz commented on 2019-05-31 07:52 (UTC)

@SolarAquarion flat-remix-gnome is actually installed inside /usr/share/themes. What may cause problems is the GDM theme, which is part of the theme and can only be installed by generating the gresource file and replacing gnome-shell's default one /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource. As GDM doesn't support themes this is the only way to install it (except for Ubuntu, which ships with a modified GDM that accepts CSS theming without recompiling the gresource file)

If you are having trouble with the theme, please contact me or via twitter dani_ruiz24, or open an issue on GitHub I'll be glad to help you ;) Anyway the easy way to fix broken gnome is just reinstalling it sudo pacman -S gnome-shell

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-05-31 03:19 (UTC)

flat-remix-gnome should really be installed to /usr/share/themes not /usr/share/gnome-shell, since it causes problems

shifuman commented on 2019-03-16 23:05 (UTC)

Hi, I had exactly the same problem as pegasusearl below. My solution was to reinstall gnome-shell after installing the theme, so I can keep the shell theme (but not the GDM one).

Since the GDM is also patched, the theme has to touch some gnome-shell resources that are shared with other themes. Reinstalling gnome-shell restores the original files.

pegasusearl commented on 2019-02-19 22:24 (UTC)

Hello, I just want to let you know.

Yesterday, when I changed the gnome shell theme to flat remix series, there is an empty gap in the top bar, I though it was that the theme is supposed to look like that. Then I changed my theme to sometheng else.

The next reboot, that gap affect every other gnome shell theme even if User Theme extension is disabled. Here is the screenshot:

Uninstalling the theme and reboot again fix the problem.

Not working for Gnome 3.30, I can't see the option in the tweaktool after installing this AUR package.

daniruiz: same comment here about using correct versioning:

AdrianPruneda commented on 2017-04-30 03:49 (UTC)

Thanks for the package, works fine!

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-12-15 00:06 (UTC)

Sorry guys I must have forgotten about that comment by @Hecsall.

Platwnas commented on 2016-12-14 16:52 (UTC)

@Hecsall I saw the error as well and I tried to fix it and failed. How did you know that "Flat Remix" is the correct fix?

Hecsall commented on 2016-12-06 23:14 (UTC)

Hi, i tried to install this package and i found an error in the PKGBUILD. In line 25 it's not "Super Flat Remix ...ecc" but just "Flat Remix" Changing it will install without errors

babel commented on 2016-02-03 19:27 (UTC)

Thanks @olliemath, you were right.

olliemath commented on 2016-01-19 20:52 (UTC)

Currently getting "ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!" To fix, change the sha512sum in PKGBUILD to (at the time of writing) 66cdf8190da77f997bcc5060f34067019f87213a0456f85d89d71776bea3d458ef4d72c35b69166c55dcf07def337f8cd3e3aee62ddeed28611d440bb9ad84a4
