    gnome shell brightness, volume overlay transparency bug

    hey there,

    i'm using gnome shell on a standard 64bit quantal installation with gnome3-team ppa. the theme is faience from tiheum equinox ppa (but the problem also occurs with the standard gs-theme).

    as you can see in the screenshot, the volume overlay is not rendered correctly (same thing with brightness). i thought this is a problem with the faience-theme (or that it was maybe intended to be that way), but today i found out, that the bug occurs for every shell theme i try.

    btw. every other transparent thingy is rendered correctly.


    would be greatly appreciated if someone had any idea how to solve this.

    thanks in advance.

    Ah, strange!

    Just found out: it's got something to do with the gtk+ theme (not the shell-theme as i thought before). if i change the gtk+ theme to the adwaita default theme, those transparent overlays are rendered correctly.

    So, the problem occurs with the following gtk-themes: faience, ambiance, radiance ... (i haven't installed that many though).

    Does anybody know if those themes got any packages in common, maybe from gnome3-team or equinox repos?

    I am also having the same problem. Have to adjust the brightness every time boot up the OS. Hoping to find a solution soon..

    I've been having a look around, and it seems to be a problem with the theme code.
    It would appear that the theme developers have neglected to add a style entry for the meda-key's OSD

    I was able to mend the theme i'm currently using (zoncolor) by adding some lines to the gtk.css

    Here are the changes made to the Evolve theme to fix this issue

    I hope this helps

    this works for me. It is super dumb that keeping the set level isn't the default!
