The recent update is regarding the PKGBUILD, I've found a little misconception in the installation directory.

thanks 51v4n !
but i do get a full configurated gnome installtion, bluetooth is working and themes are set. Before i can set everything also under i3-gnome, now i get only networkmanager-tray-icon working the rest is not aviable or have no effect under i3-gnome session.

make sure if you have installed bluez:


and get up and running those units through systemctl:
sudo systemctl enable bluez.service && sudo systemctl start bluez.service

gnome-bluetooth as well:

for appereance make sure to make your customizations under GNOME DE, because it's more about the DE than the Window Manager.

Another Utility to consider it's gtk-chtheme:

For me, now i can login to i3-gnome session but appereance and devices like bluetooth is not aviable over gnome-tweak-tool or gnome-control-center.

Fixed!, now works again, thanks to @killajoe to let us know about the issue and @Snowmobil for his suggestion on GitHub.
Now it should work for everyone.

Update: just added the epoch as suggested by @ItachiSan, thanks for the suggestions!

@ItachiSan ok, got it, thanks!, currently on it, i'm doing other tasks, be patient.

ItachiSan commented on 2017-09-11 12:01

I think you might add the epoch, as the previous version was 5.1 and now it is 2.1.

hello @Hi-Angel
Sorry for the misconceptions, the deal with i3-gnome is that you're still using GNOME as a 'backend thing', you don't get the panels and visual stuff from GNOME but you're using GNOME stuff like the audio manager in this case if you plug-in your headphones you don't have to load an external app for manage that stuff, also you're using way lot better GTK+ integration so you don't have to do hardconfigs to maintain a good looking feel for most of the software that uses GTK (firefox and so on), and in addition you're using the i3 that you know as a window manager instead of the window manager of GNOME (metacity {wayland} or whatever GNOME uses now).
hope this help you.
