@mpt wondered why all menus have different colors in the different places and in light and dark versions of the gtk theme.
I thought about this for a while and maybe he is right about this.
Our principles or planing towards the shell and gtk differentiation changed several times since Novemeber. When you dive into the css and try diferent things you know what the shell can render and where it’s limits are.
One way to bring all menus to at least the same colors, would be to adapt both light&dark gtk themes to the popup color of the shell. We thought about the different way around some months ago, with changing the popover color to white (Mockups/new design discussions ) but this the problem with that way is, that the shell theme can not change without manually changing it in gnome-tweaks, unlike dark and light css which can change from app to app or by using the new gnome night light feature (gnome-calendar 3.30 and gnome-builder as examples).
So since I am really bad with Gimp I simply clicked the headerbar at a position where the shell menu opens but it looks like I clicked the gtk hamburger menu:
The context menus would look “like this” but again, I clicked the next free pixel on my desktop to give an impression how this would look with gtk context menus:
Thoughts? @madsrh @c-lobrano @luxamman @didrocks @3v1n0 @mpt and everyone else?
Edit: unlike in shell, those would have a drop shadow, like the shell OSDs so “imagine” that
