GNOME update messes up dark theme

Apparently, the problem is from within the Ice SSB as when I open Google Calendar in Firefox as another tab, everything seems to display fine. For some reason, I am unable to use Ice with Vivaldi, even though it was designed to work with Vivaldi by the original developers. Because of the way Ice creates its SSBs (site-specific browsers) I have no access to an address bar in order to try an make changes in about:config, and the changes I might make from within Firefox to not carry over to the SSBs I create, even though they also use Firefox to launch.

This method helps me on all KDE distributions. I’m writing through an translator so the name of the settings can be different. Use it only when using a proprietary Nvidia driver.

OB locker and power management

Good day to you all. Thx for a great Distro! I must say, I am really enjoying Antergos. I watched the video on where the name comes from and that makes it a little bit more special.

Anyway, I’m testing Antergos on my laptop before I’ll take the plunge in reinstalling my desktop. I run OpenBox. All work great, except my Hibernation did not recover. I found this article that did the trick:
https://forum.antergos.com/topic/3172/display-is-black-after-waking-from-suspend-and-unlocking/2

This now means that I cannot use LighDM and Light-locker. So I would like to ask some advice on how I can get a locker on my standard setup, now running GDM (or any other DM for that matter).
I do not like xscreensaver at all. The logging screen looks old and one cannot change that. It’s a pity as it works well. But every time I log in and see that login screen, I cringe.

For some reason xet makes NO difference. Xset –q shows me that dpms is enabled. Xset s 5 10 is set. And nothing happens. Not sure why.

I installed gnome-screensaver. If I run gnome-screensaver and I then do a gnome-screensaver –l, my screen locks (with GDM). So that works. But I do not know how to get it automated. Screen lock after 10 min, suspend after 30, hibernate after 40.

Any advice pls?
