How to enable dark theme in Gnome 3


In my opinion, the dark theme in Gnome3 looks neat, just AWESOME, here is how Gnome Music looks on my arch linux after enabling the dark theme. it justs looks cool. For you to do the same for gnome applications you need to install “gnome-tweak-tool“.

To install “gnome-tweak-tool” on ubuntu, open your terminal and do:

  • sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

If you are on arch linux, do:

  • sudo pacman -S gnome-tweak-tool


through gnome-shell or alt+f2 run gnome-tweak-tool, then go to “themes” section on the left, then switch “Enable dark theme for all applications” to be ON. Then you are ready to go, try to run gnome-terminal or any other app. Have Fun 🙂
