Cannot run Gnome Tweak Tool on Budgie Desktop 10.3.1

I just installed Arch Linux with Budgie Desktop version 10.3.1. I need to change some settings such as icon and GTK theme on my desktop. Usually, I use Gnome Tweak Tool to do this but it seems not working. I can install it but it returned errors everytime I tried to launch it.

[dhani@arch-vbox]: ~>$ gnome-tweak-tool

shell._settings.bind(“disable-user-extensions”, self.titlebar_widget,

I think its kind of bug. My system runs with the following:

  • Kernel : 4.11
  • Budgie Desktop: 10.3.1
  • Gnome Shell: 3.24
