The Pop GNOME Shell theme.

This is the GNOME Shell theme that goes along with the Pop GTK Theme. It's built and managed separately so that changes in one don't necessarily require building unrelated components. This also allows cleaner builds and easier maintenance.

Required Components

Pop GNOME Shell supports GNOME 3.18, 3.24, 3.26, and 3.28

  • GNOME-Shell >= 3.18.3
  • Pop GTK Theme*


  • Pop GTK Theme isn't necessarily a requirement, but it is required to select the theme in tweak tool.


Window Titles: Fira Sans SemiBold 10

Interface: Fira Sans Book 10

Documents: Roboto Slab Regular 11

Monospace: Fira Mono Regular 11


Pop is intended to be installed through your distribution package manager.

sudo apt install pop-gnome-shell-theme

It's also recommended to restart the GNOME Shell after applying the theme of your choice.

Enter the Shell's command launcher

Alt + F2

This will restart the Shell after you hit Enter
