If you are experiencing shell coredump indicating st_theme_get_custom_stylesheets, try with !536.

I got crashes with wayland and adapta gtk+shell theme with this off.

@FuelFlo Great to hear, thanks for testing!

@Terence thx!

Well it doesn't seem to happen anymore with the update you pushed, including 786, 923, 1126, 1164 and 1192.

...while it definitely also happened with the original arch mutter and gnome-shell package.

@FuelFlo try the new update I just pushed just in case.

If you can reproduce with the official arch package as well (make sure you also revert to mutter and not mutter-performance), then it needs to be reported upstream.

@Terence, I'm having the same problem as @hpstg, but on wayland. Even using std. gnome-shell and deactivating all extensions still leads to having frozen program windows, either after screen lock or sby, but also if a window has been in the background for some time.

@hpstg Thanks for your report and update, I synced to 3.32.2 which includes which might fix what you describe.

When in an session, locking the screen, or the screen going to sleep, will "lock" any sort of interaction with application windows, while the shell itself can be clicked.

Reverting back to gnome-shell fixed it.

EDIT: It didn't fix it, it seems to be a more general issue. I will try to isolate the moment it happens exactly and paste the journal.

@Terence Thanks :)

@chrisjbillington right, right, I made the patch and the associated dependency optional.

gjs-git fails its check() presently. Also, do we really want to pull in an actual -git package as a dependency of this one? This package has curated patches added to it, whereas a -git package is bringing in patches from the next release indiscriminately, exposing users to likely more breakage compared to curated patches. I think I'd rather just not include the upstream patches that can't be backported without pulling in a -git package.
