Install GTK Theme issue (SOLVED)
« on: July 14, 2016, 01:57:36 am »
Hi,
     I am trying to install the Delorean theme as per the example in the user guide, I have downloaded & extracted the files but the option does not show in the
Customise Look and Feel box.
I wonder if I have missed something - I can see the folders & files in the ~.themes folder that I created.
I was going to insert an image to show this but not sure how to do it.

regards

Hornet

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -a ~/.themesand
Code: [Select]
ls -a ~/.themes/Delorean-Dark-3.18

Hi Hornet_03, could you please remember to encapsulate terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  It preserves the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  This time, I've done it for you - many thanks  ;).

Okay you've got the DeLorean-Dark-3.18 directory in the wrong place .. move it UP a directory, so it's in the same directory as you've currently got DeLorean-Dark-3.18-master

You can either do this with this command:
Code: [Select]
mv ~/.themes/DeLorean-Dark-3.18-master/DeLorean-Dark-3.18 ~/.themes/DeLorean-Dark-3.18or you can do it graphically in the file manager.

Thanks for your assistance guys - I can see the theme now.

I'm a bit confused with the post from AndyInMokum - I am new to using the forum, could you explain what I should be doing when I paste terminal outputs.

Apologies

Once you've pasted the terminal output into the forum editor .. highlight it all and click the # button above the forum editor box.

this will ensure the text displays in a code box in the forum therefore keeping the correct formatting.

Experiment until you figure it out .. and use the preview button before posting to check you got it right ;)
