Ubuntu – Top bar margin is displayed wrong after update to 20.04

20.04gnomeiconstop-bar

After updating to 20.04, my top bar is displayed wrong. The icons seem to have correct size, but the bar itself seems to be too thin. Using maximized windows, e.g. hitting the close-button actually hits top bar icons. I'm using ubuntu 20.04 with gnome version 3.36.2
As theme I use Adapta (applications) and Adwaita (icons), but changing it does not make any difference. Only when choose a different display scaling to other than 100% (like e.g. 125%) lets the error disappear. Changing scaling back to 100% also means wrong top bar scaling again.
How do I get this solved?

  • I had the same problem after updating from 18.04. Changing the GNOME Shell theme solved the problem. You will need to install:

    • GNOME Tweak Tool

    sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

    Then just download any gnome shell theme (Arc Theme worked for me) and choose it in the tweak tool. Hope this helps.
