Theming issues in snaps


I do use Jammy with latest full colored :star_struck: GS+Yaru updates.
Ubuntu wayland session, full Yaru.

I do use these snaps:

There are at least two issues here:

  • I started the session and apps with light theme then switched to dark theme, Thunderbird does not switch to dark theming (FF does)
  • Firefox (and TB) do not use Yaru but seem to still use Adwaita, at least in header bar color + icons

hi @fthx

the gtk-common-themes snap is not yet updated to include the new accented yaru-changes at the moment. My guess is that this issue is probably because of those new yaru-themes not being present in gtk-common-themes snap.


That’s it, if I use Yaru-orange so Yaru, the window actions icons are ok.

Well put together for theming issues in snaps.
Awe some job. Looking forward to seeing the dark theme
in 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish

It’s ok with latest gtk-common-themes from edge channel.
