GNOME Theme Fix

Garuda team,

I have a small feature request about the theming of your GNOME distribution. Whenever I use the search feature, I am unable to tell visually which item is selected. I have not modified my theme from the default prodided.

See attached YouTube video issue reproduction.

If it could be patched so it is possible to visually tell which item is selected, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so much for all your work on this project! This is a great distro on so many levels!

Here's my specs for good measure

We recently switched GNOME to not use any theming by default (among the reasons being such issues). Theme issues should be reported at the projects GitHub:
