I enabled dark theme in elementary OS 5.1 using this command: "wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/veyselerden/elementaryos-dark-theme-enabler-script/master/enable-dark-theme.sh && chmod +x enable-dark-theme.sh && ./enable-dark-theme.sh" How do I revert back to the normal theme?

The script copied some setting changes into gtk config. So you just need to delete that file.

sudo rm -rf ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

The dock theme however is overridden by the script, so you need to find a suitable theme at gnome-look.org

[Plank themes here1

Extract the package to .local/share/plank/themes (hidden in your home directory)

Open the terminal type;

plank --preferences

You’ll now be greeted by this menu.

You can now pick the theme you downloaded.
