I was having problems where all the icons in the applications menu were crammed next to each other. I fixed it by changing

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}
to
.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 118px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 118px;
}

That's because it's not 3.4 compatible.

I installed it by overwriting the "/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme" but my windows did not change. How do i do that?

Hey, I'm wondering, how did you get the Faenza icons installed in Fedora? I've been trying to get them installed in Fedora, but no luck.

Install the GNOME Tweak Tool and install the icons to ~/.icons.

these instructions confuse me.
I seem to have gotten one installed (the ambiance one) per your instructions..
But can't get Gaia or viper to function or show up.

Can you elaborate on why we have to rename them to something ( "theme") that we've already named others with "theme"?
It conflicts.

Can you possibly write some instructions with gnome shell newbs in mind?

would be much appreciated. :bow:

This is absolutley awesome.

I was looking for another theme (your orta shell theme actually) and decided to keep looking at the new themes for G-shell since I've been away for a while.

Your definitly making the best g-shell themes and they keep getting better as I go!

Keep up the great work and thanks for making desktops everywhere a little easier on the eyes! :-)

Hey, would you put some of your stuff in my group? It's only a small group.
Not sure if I have a folder for it. If not, I'll create one.

No obligation. But it's good to keep promoting Linux..
