I’m running Gnome 40 in classic mode on Fedora 34. I use a number of extensions to get the look/feel of older versions of the interface and generally it works well for me. A recent update changed the colors of several of the UI elements making them a lot harder to read and I can’t figure out where the colors are controlled. I’ve scrounged around in Tweaktool and dconf editor to no avail.
The two in particular that I’m having trouble with are:
The workspace names that pop up when you hover over the workspace switcher on the right side of the bottom bar.
The large speaker icon that pops up in the center of the screen when you adjust the volume.
Both of these appear as white text on a light-gray background and are very difficult to read. (I’ve taken screenshots to demonstrate, but this forum doesn’t seem to allow attachments).
Give us some system info inxi -Fzx
List out extensions also gnome-extensions show
Make a gnome-extensions reset
+1, the simplest way to check if it is a theme related issue is to create a new user and see if the issues persist. If they do not under these “vanilla” configurations/conditions, it’s an issue with the user-specific theme configuration.
Note: ‘gnome-extensions reset’ requires providing a UUID for each extension so that wasn’t practical to do. I have recently removed and reinstalled all the extensions though and that hasn’t helped this situation.
I’ll upload screenshots in a separate reply due to new user limits.
You have lots of extensions so it is really hard to understand which one get out of sync or having inconsistency.
Try with 1 that create a new user.
And switch to that and see if that user also have those issues or not. And be sure your system is uptodate
Edit- you can add user with useradd commend or go to settings and user option and add user and add a user and switch to it
Else sudo useradd name
Yes, I’ve tried both Adwaita and Adwaita Dark themes. Neither one seems to affect the appearance of these popups, and although I’ve got a few other pre-installed themes they also don’t affect the shading. The only time I’ve seen these popups change color is when selecting between standard Gnome and Gnome Classic operating modes.
