What doesn't work? I am not seeing the description of your attempt to fix the issue.

SGS posted a photo from google. This advice is great because I wouldn't think of it...

The tutorials are not working (UBUNTU) and are not solving the problem. If that were the case, I wouldn't be writing here.

Neither this:

This issue affects every version of Garuda Gnome (current.iso)

So please do not paste the photo to search on Google because I did.

Pasting a photo of search results is not a troubleshooting aid. I think SGS was just pointing out that a quick search for this issue yielded a lot of results for people who have documented troubleshooting the same issue.

If someone on the forum knows exactly how to fix your issue I am sure they will chime in. In the meanwhile, try combing through some of those search results and see if you can find the answer on your own.

I see you opened one link so far--good job, sorry it didn't help you. Don't give up.

What makes you say that? Just because it is affecting your install doesn't mean other people are experiencing the same thing. Keep in mind, a lot of people are running Gnome who have not been adding and deleting themes and related packages like you have been. :man_shrugging:



I tried fresh install, and same issue.

Nope, it is not g00gle :slight_smile:

Post these:

ls /usr/share/pixmaps | grep -i text
ls /etc | grep -i release
grep "^LOGO=" /etc/os-release

In short...

  • Find the value of LOGO in file /etc/os-release
  • Create (if not exists) two files with names

... obviously one is for light themes and the other for dark themes (background is dark).

I hope it works. I have no idea!!!


I just installed this on the metal to take a look and I can confirm that the logo is a broken icon for some reason.

Following Petsam's hint, I found these files:

ls /usr/share/pixmaps/ | grep -i text
.rw-r--r-- 4.5k root  6 Dec  2021  archlinux-logo-text-dark.svg
.rw-r--r-- 4.6k root  6 Dec  2021  archlinux-logo-text.svg
.rw-r--r-- 8.0k root  2 Apr 13:35  gnome-logo-text-dark.svg
.rw-r--r-- 8.0k root  2 Apr 13:35  gnome-logo-text.svg

And this clue:

grep "^LOGO=" /etc/os-release

Copy the Gnome logo:

sudo cp /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-text.svg /usr/share/pixmaps/garudalinux-text.svg
sudo cp /usr/share/pixmaps/gnome-logo-text-dark.svg /usr/share/pixmaps/garudalinux-text-dark.svg


Nice one Petsam, works like a charm. :blush:



Thanks, working now.

sudo nano -w /usr/lib/os-release
