The same happens with Yaru-Light:

Public bug reported at Bug #1943371 “Yaru-Theme does not define colors/icons/gradients ...” : Bugs : yaru-theme package : Ubuntu
Please subscribe to it.


WOW! many thanks for doing the bugreport. :slight_smile:

Yes, Yaru-light is also affected. I've subscribed to the bug
There seems to be a patch committed to fix it (thanks for the tip @franksmcb ):

maybe , if we're lucky, we might see this back in an update :slight_smile:


As temporary solution we can build and install local version of gElemental using commands below:

sudo sed -i "s/# deb-src/deb-src/g" /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get build-dep gelemental
sudo apt-get install git dpkg-dev

cd ~/Downloads
git clone https://github.com/N0rbert/gelemental
cd gelemental
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gelemental/gelemental_2.0.0-1build1.debian.tar.xz
tar -xf gelemental_2.0.0-1build1.debian.tar.xz
rm gelemental_2.0.0-1build1.debian.tar.xz
sed -i "s/2.0.0-1build1/2.0.0-1build1colors1/g" debian/changelog
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -b
sudo apt-get install ../*elemental*colors1*.deb

I prepared a pull request https://github.com/ginggs/gelemental/pull/9
for Yaru-MATE-dark and Yaru-MATE-light themes.


Wow! Flawless! :slight_smile:
