Gnome Tweak Tool keeps on crashing

Hi, I installed a new theme on my Fedora 34, but after that the Gnome tweaks tool won’t start anymore. I tried to reboot and reinstall the tool, but it keeps on crashing. What can I do? Thanks in advance.

Maybe a corrupted theme which make gnome-tweaks crash, Please check this DIrectory, make a backup, and delete the directory where the theme live:

ls /usr/share/themes/



Thanks, the theme was corrupted, and Nautilus too was not opening. I deleted the folder from the terminal and now everything is working fine :blush:

Great to know :slight_smile:

Another two approaches are:

1.- use dconf-editor

sudo dnf install dconf-editor

and navigate through org → gnome → desktop → interface and change there.

2.- use gsettings

gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.interface 

For example:

org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme 'Papirus-Dark'
org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'Pop-dark'
org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme 'Default'
org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme 'Oxygen_Yellow'

A. You can reset to original values:

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme ''

B. or change the key with set to gtk-theme to Adwaita (Default one):

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Adwaita"

After run this command logout and login back or reboot.
