When I open Gnome Tweak tool I get the following message in the Terminal:

(gnome-tweak-tool:3962): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:3267:48: Expected ',' in color definition

WARNING : Shell not installed or running

I have the Gnome Shell installed so I'm guessing it's not running properly. Help?

Are you running gnome-shell? Because this seems to be a problem with gnome-tweak-tool.

Check if gnome shell is running:

if pgrep gnome-shell; then echo GNOME shell is running; else echo Nope not running;fi

When I try to run gnome shell I get this message.

> (gnome-shell:4466): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:3267:48: Expected ',' in color definition

> Window manager warning: Screen 0 on display ":0" already has a window manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current window manager.

I don't exactly know what to do.

Have you made any changes to system files or installed any extensions? Please try to create a new user and see if the issue persists. The above error is in a system file, which ideally, should not be touched by users.
