I was having problems where all the icons in the applications menu were crammed next to each other. I fixed it by changing

.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}
to
.icon-grid {
spacing: 36px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 118px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 118px;
}

That's because it's not 3.4 compatible.

I installed it by overwriting the "/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme" but my windows did not change. How do i do that?

Hey, I'm wondering, how did you get the Faenza icons installed in Fedora? I've been trying to get them installed in Fedora, but no luck.

Install the GNOME Tweak Tool and install the icons to ~/.icons.

these instructions confuse me.
I seem to have gotten one installed (the ambiance one) per your instructions..
But can't get Gaia or viper to function or show up.

Can you elaborate on why we have to rename them to something ( "theme") that we've already named others with "theme"?
It conflicts.

Can you possibly write some instructions with gnome shell newbs in mind?

would be much appreciated. :bow:
