Looks like there's something wrong with your directories. Send me an email to, we'll try to fix this together. - 1 day ago
Sorry guys! I've missed the switches in gnome-shell again. If those switches ("do not disturb" for example) are still purple colored, please redownload your theme or the pack. I've updated all files. Sorry for this! - 1 day ago
It's not hard but it requires you to have all color codes needed for compiling.

Easiest way is to replace color codes in my (clone my git, the file is in ./src).
Take a color you want to replace, for example Aqua.
Then just replace every color code for Aqua in following lines:
188 + 189 - base colors for gtk theme
234, 235 + 236 - also base colors for gtk themes, but for their svg images.
299 - it's a gradient based on 10 color codes. Replace each code in the array. This is just needed for icons, if you don't want them, you can leave this.

Then compile the themes by entering the command "./ Aqua -all". The script will compile everything including icons.
To compile everything BUT icons just type --noicons or -n instead of --all.

The script will also show you errors if needed libraries or packages are missing. But you can also install them with apt:
"sudo apt install inkscape optipng libcanberra-gtk3-module libcanberra-gtk-module python3 python-pil x11-apps"

Hope this helps.

It's not a bug of Yaru-Aqua or Yaru-Colors itself. The Ubuntu Software app is a snap packages since 20.04 (or 19.10?). Snap applications are using their own theme resources which includes stock Yaru. Since those containers are write protected I don't have a change to add my themes at the moment (if someone knows how to create Snap packages, please let me know!!).
So, there are two soultions:
1. Change the theme of the application using GTK Inspector - this works just until logoff.
2. Remove all Snap applications, remove Snap completely from your system and use the default packages from apt. So did I and everything's fine now.

I've added this to the readme! - 2 days ago
Sorry, for the late reply...normally I'm getting an email notification but this time not...
I used the new aubergine of 20.04' Yaru as Purple. Maybe I'll add this purple in the future. I missed this comment while doing the latest update, sorry for this ... I'll try to keep it in mind! - 2 days ago
Did you install VS as snap packages from Ubuntu Software? If so, then it's a snap related bug. To "fix" this you can set Yaru as standard theme for VS Code by using GTK Inspector. This works until a reboot. Snap doesn't work with custom themes - sadly and terrible. - Jun 29 2020
Fixed! Sorry! - Jun 29 2020
the same is for "bullet-*" and "dash-*" files btw...check those, too, please. - Jun 23 2020
Okay...I missed to list two files in gtk-3.20/assets:

I removed those files on my themes to test it and the checkmarks are red for me as well.
The strange thing is, that those files aren't missing in the archives here on pling and they're also present on my repo: - Jun 23 2020
Okay, next try;
Please check if following files are present:

- Jun 23 2020
Okay, that's strange...but let me try to find the issue.
Can you try to copy the theme to ~/.themes, plase? And if this doesn't work as well, try ~/.local/share/themes? - Jun 23 2020
Are you using the latest version? I redownload Yaru-Blue on my 20.04 VM and don't have this issue. The assets for the checkboxes are also present. Which OS? - Jun 23 2020
Yaru-Purple uses Ubuntus Aubergine (the same as in 20.04s stock Yaru) - Jun 05 2020
Oh man...I'll look over it tomorrow. It may looks stupid but it's very much work and it's hard to test everything. - May 21 2020
Fixed! - May 21 2020
You're right...I've messed it up while compiling everything.........again. I'll recompile and update the files, it'll take an hour or so! Sorry! - May 21 2020
Glad to read that! I'm currently working on an update of which doesn't install it to /usr anymore. I'm also trying to figure out how to create a snap package but it's on a level way too far for me - May 20 2020
That's because Ubuntu Software is a snap package. If my information are correct, snaps don't support custom themes at the moment. But normally, it should choose Adwaita as theme if the custom theme can't be found in the /snap directory.
Did you install the theme to /usr/share? if so, please remove it manually or by running and try to install it to ~/.themes. Tell me if this works, please!

Which menu do you mean? Since stock Yaru doesn't have this, Yaru-Colors won't have this as well. But maybe it's easy to add editing the css files. - May 05 2020
This is what I meant. I don't support Metacity at the moment, and probably not in the near future, because stock Yaru doesn't support it.
Creating themes for Metacity is a bit complicated, at least when I tried it for Yaru-Colors. It's much work because you need to create png files of everything. But GTK uses mostly css to create the UI, so it's a very complex and time consuming work to create every png file Metacity needs. And I really have barely the time for a 20.04 update of Yaru-Color. Sorry for this. - May 05 2020
It'll come but I need more time because I have too much hobbies and also a bored wife - Apr 19 2020
It's fixed now, I updated all files here and also the repo (compiling script) - Dec 15 2019
Please take a look in Yaru's source:
It seems that these images are supposed to be missing. Look at lines 403-405:
# QGtkStyle (used for Qt apps) *always* assumes scrollbars have
# arrows, so configure these here. Gtk2 apps will atually ignore
# this. "

Also take a look inside of the assets.txt which is the file index for compiling the png's. There are no scrollbar-arrow-[*].png so they can't be in my theme since I'm using this as source. I don't know why they're missing, I opened an issue on Yaru's source git for this.

For now, your solution is the best for everyone who needs this, since it's just Qt related. I'll update Yaru-Colors when I've an answer from Yaru developers. - Dec 15 2019
Thanks, I'll fix this and comment again when done. It's not the install script, it seems that these images are missing when compiling the png from the source svg. - Dec 15 2019
Do they work with stock Yaru? - Dec 12 2019
Thank you. I'll try to keep it up as long as I can. Next project will be a fully colored version like "federicofavale" suggested but it'll take some time. - Dec 05 2019
Updated to 2.3.1 which fixes this issue. Please redownload the pack or your desired theme. - Dec 05 2019
Every update a new issue... I'll take a look over it and update again, soon. Thanks for the information! - Dec 05 2019
Classic is called Default now - it's part of todays 2.1 release!
- Nov 04 2019
I updated the theme! - Sep 21 2019
I'll update the theme soon including the new light theme. But I don't know if I'm able to create it for xfwm4 since I don't have any experience in theming xfce. but I'll try! - Sep 19 2019
Puh, and I thought I need to find a workaround by myself...just kidding. I'm glad, that it's working for you now and thank you for the reply.
I always put my themes in /use/share/themes. It need root privileges and most of the Linux cracks would burn me for this but I never had any issues with this. - Sep 13 2019
That sounds good. Thanks.
But if the stock yaru theme works with Double Commander but mine does not, it has to be an issue with Yaru-Colors. Maybe you and the Marwaita Dev team find the issue quickly, then I'll fix it.

If I remember correctly, Ubuntu will update the yaru theme with 19.10's release, so I'll update Yaru-Colors as well. - Sep 12 2019
Hi, thanks for the comment. I didn't work on the theme for the last months but I'll try to find out what's wrong here. I just used the original Yaru theme by Ubuntu and modified the colors, nothing else. Maybe it's just an GTK2 issue but I'm not sure about this since I don't have much knowledge about GTK themes. I'll let you know if I could fix it. - Sep 12 2019
Dark notifcations is in the works, when I've the time for it. It's time consuming but I'll release a Yaru-Colors-"Night" theme pack, but I don't know when. The idea is great and you're not the first one who mentioned this.

The colors of the close button are in the same shade as stock Yaru, but I'll take a look over it and maybe update it after the easter weekend ;) - Apr 17 2019
I used the source of Ubuntus original Yaru theme, so it doesn't support MATE, only Gnome. The Yaru-MATE theme is just a MATE styled one, not a theme for MATE.
They won't show up in MATEs theme manager, because they don't support Metacity. That's also the reason why the taskbar won't get themed.

I missed to edit the index files for the icons, apparently, I'll fix it. I didn't notice this, maybe because they're no issues with gnome.

I already found out what's wrong with MATE and Metacity and how to fix this. It's possible but it's very hard and time consuming work. Maybe I'll create Yaru-Colors for MATE later, maybe not.

I thought about a Teal theme, but forgot it, some how. Aqua is the nearest to teal, I'll add this, for sure...thanks for this.
Orange isn't available for Yaru-Colors, because it's the stock theme (also Gnome, only).
If I create MATE support, I'll add stock Yaru, too. - Apr 11 2019

Thank you very much! - Feb 03 2019
I forgot to ask for another icon: Arduino IDE including for .ino files. - Jan 25 2019
Next step: repo for updates...would be great, I don't know how much work this is. After 3 weeks I have to say: best icon pack ever! - Jan 25 2019
Great! I used the icons now a bit longer and need to say, that this is one of the best theme I've ever used on Linux! I used Flat Remix for a long time but yours is better. Very nice work! - Jan 04 2019
+ - Jan 04 2019
Great theme, something fresh and new but not as funky as others. Can you add VLC and Franz, please? - Jan 03 2019
