I am trying to change my gnome shell themee, and I've tried dconf-editor, gconf-editor (deprecated apparently), gnome-tweak-tool, and a few others. Nothing seems to work. Thoughts?

I have it working after reboot. I think there is a broken gnome*extensions thing in yum that I accidentally installed or uninstalled.

Now it's not working again.

Gah! It's all because I installed Enthought Python Distribution and prepended the EPD directory to my PATH with

export PATH=/usr/local/EPD/bin:$PATH

in my ~/.bashrc. After changing that to:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/EPD/bin

which appends it to my path instead, gnome-tweak-tool works beautifully for me.

Fedora now has an awesome looking desktop environment!
