gnome-shell-theme is not listed in gnome-tweaks, this is as upstream designed the theme.

To use shell theme you need to set the default shell theme in gnome-tweaks and select "Yaru session" in the login screen.

should be fixed now:


thanks for reporting

There is an issue with the way this package is built, either with the patch being applied, or with the x and wayland sessions being removed - leading to this bug with ugly buttons in the shell theme:

If I modify the PKGBUILD to not rm the wayland and x sessions and to not apply the patch, then the shell theme isn't able to be selected from within gnome-tweak, but the ugly buttons problem is resolved by logging into the session from GDM.

It looks like the shell theme maybe isn't designed to be used without the session, though I don't fully understand why.

@drakkan Thanks! Too bad it seems they won't fix it anytime soon!

@amoka, I think this is an upstream issue not a packaging one.

This specific issue seems already reported upstream

Issue with the current directory title color using the non-dark version "Yaru" theme.

never used pamac before, just installed and tested, it seems to work fine using this command:

pamac build yaru-gnome-shell-theme

In you output I see "Interrupt.." This generally means that the build was intentionally interrupted (using CTRL+C or similar way to send a SIGINT). I don't see obvious error in the PKGBUILD

Yaru developers are messing around with the Light/Dark theme, and moved file structure a bit, which breaks your PKGBUILD. The git commit that breaks this PKGBUILD is pull request #816 (7eebdd859a9a774d1e7beed5ebacf6c526b804dc)

Errors (I install {gnome-shell,gtk,icon} together): /usr/share/Yaru-dark/gtk-3.0/assets is both in 'yaru-gnome-shell-theme' and 'yaru-gtk-theme' /usr/share/Yaru-dark/gtk-3.0/gtk.css {error as above} /usr/share/Yaru-dark/index.theme {error as above}

Note that Yaru developers are removing the dark variant during building, and will only enable it after they think it's good. Technical details are above me, though, sadly.

EDITv2: For now, I added 'rm -r "$pkgdir/usr/share/themes/Yaru-dark" to package_yaru-gnome-shell-theme(), since it's dark-themed anyway (mostly) and it works (dark gtk theme is present too).

Please add "git" to makedepends, it is required for pulling the git sources. Without that you cannot build the Yaru packages inside a clean chroot
