By the third day of using Fedora Silverblue, I already discovered it wasn’t as easy to customize Gnome as in Fedora Workstation, or any other distro with a Gnome Desktop Environment. No matter what desktop environment I’m running, the first thing I always do is install a dark theme, either Adwaita-Dark, Arc Dark, or Greybird Dark, and the second thing I do is install papirus icon. With Gnome, you need to install Gnome Tweaks, if it is not already installed by default. With Fedora Workstation it’s just a simple sudo dnf install gnome-tweaks papirus-icon-theme, but with Silverblue instilling these apps requires you to use rpm-ostree instead of dnf.

Once installed, I was able to customize Gnome the way I like it! I’m still installing apps on my laptop, but so far I’m linking Silverblue so much I’ve installed it on a second laptop. Before you go thinking I’ve already made up my mind, I doubt it will stay on the second laptop long since Pop os 21.04 beta was just released, and I’m very excited to check out Cosmic!
