I am very restrained about introducing a workaroung for any package in the PKGBUILD. However since the project is way outdated and the maintainer has asked for someone to obtain the project [1], it might be best to implement a proper workaround at the source.

elegance-color-prefs doesn't appear to work with Gnome Shell 3.16. As a work around, copy the 3.14 theme files to a new 3.16 folder:

# cp -R /usr/share/elegance-colors/templates/gs-3.14/ /usr/share/elegance-colors/templates/gs-3.16

Hey @rasmusx, great package! I wrote a small update for it to sets the version to the date+revision being revision installed rather than the date the package was last updated. The built package looks like: gnome-shell-themes-elegance-colors-git-20140330.r224.06d2408-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.

New syntax PKGBUILD with automatic pkgver() function

pkgdesc="A chameleon theme for Gnome Shell which can change colors according to the current GTK theme, current wallpaper (uses imagemagick to get color) or a user defined color."
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('gtk3' 'gnome-shell>=3.6' 'glib2' 'imagemagick')

pkgver() {
cd elegance-colors
echo $(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)

build() {
cd elegance-colors

package() {
cd elegance-colors
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install

I just have to delete the elegance-colors.ini fine in home/.config folder. Now it works

kba712 commented on 2013-06-18 12:03

The theme works but can't configure with the configuration tool. It does not start

Diengo, does the build fail or the theme just wont work?

Also did you run 'elegance colors' after install and set theme to elegance colors with gnome tweak tool?

Diego commented on 2013-06-02 21:14
