Thread: Recently had to restore the gnome pattern. Doesn't look quite "right" now (screenshots included)

    Default Recently had to restore the gnome pattern. Doesn't look quite "right" now (screenshots included)

    While running zypper under su, I tried to remove a specific package. For some reason, zypper interpreted that as "delete ****ing EVERYTHING", and managed to remove a few packages before I hit CTRL+C hard enough to turn my keyboard into a cloud of fine beige powder. One of these packages was the gnome shell.

    I restored the gnome pattern, and things are mostly back to normal now, with a few minor exceptions.


    As you can see, the close button is gone, and the titlebar is looking a bit funky. How can I resolve this?

    Also: in the gnome configuration options, there is an orange triangle with an exclamation point inside of it next to "shell theme". I take it that my shell theme is either broken or missing. What can I do to amend that?

    i can't answer your questions, but i looked at the image you posted and
    wish to caution you:

    programs like zypper change over time....capabilities and features
    change as well as the switches and formats used to call of the
    capabilities...

    but, while programs change zypper cheat sheet images do NOT....you
    *must* always use the correct information which _matches_ the program
    you are using..

    i am not saying this problem is caused by using an out of date
    cheat-sheet, but in all cases the user/administrator should closely
    check to make sure the instructions followed fit the program in use..

    that is, if the version noted on the pdf is not *exactly* the same as
    the version returned by the command
    Code:
    zypper -V
    then it is up
    to the user/administrator to verify the use of switches/formats..

    a real good way to always have the correct info is to reference the
    manual (man) *on* the same machine as the program....because when one
    installs a new version of a program the new/updated version of the
    manual is automatically also installed..

    so, if using an old zypper cheat sheet, you *must* always also reference
    Code:
    man zypper
    to make sure you are using the correct format
    and command line switches..

    [or, as an alternative use YaST Software Management and Online Update,
    where one is *far* less likely to murder their system with an errant
    typo! not to say that can't be done, if one clicks in YaST to delete
    gnome, it will be]

    Live long and prosper.
