GNOMEShell top bar

Russel Winder
Hi,

Some time in the last 4 or 6 weeks a GNOMEShell update has changed the
behaviour of the top bar: it seems dynamic top bar is now built in, not
an extension, and I would really like to switch it off and have the
always black top bar.

I appreciate that this is not a Fedora issue per se, but that dynamic
top bar is beginning to get very irritating.

I've never heard of that, but have you checked in the Gnome tweak tool
if there's a setting for that?

Nothing in Tweak, nor that is obvious in dconf-editor. :-(

Currently the only way of getting black top-bar appears to be to have
an application window touching it.

This sounds like the new gnome-shell behavior in rawhide[1]. Are you
running rawhide?

Yes indeed I am on Rawhide – no point in a release that isn't rolling.
:-)

OK so it is intentional. In which case the writing has to switch to
dark to make the translucent bar usable. White on black is fine,
switching to white on light grey translucent, not readable. Needs to
switch to dark gray on light grey translucent to preserve readability
of the text.

I guess I should raise an issue somewhere?

Yep. Since rawhide had development versions of GNOME right now, the
place to start would probably be GNOME's bugzilla[1].
