Fedora :: Mouse Theme / Only Some Symbols Change / Other Stay Standard Theme
Feb 21, 2011
I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?
Im trying to use a downloaded theme (from [URL]) om my FVWM window manager, but the theme depends on various programs that isn`t in the Fedora repository. Namely habak, trayer and rox-filer (the last one is optional though). Is there any way to download these programs and install them independantly?
I'm running Fedora 11 x86_64 (GNOME) and I'm having a problem installing ANY themes from http://art.gnome.org. Any time I try to install a theme I get an error that it's "appears to not be a valid theme" When I first click the install button and navigate to my theme packages, I don't see the [dot] theme file, which is a red-flag. I change to "All files" and I tend to see an "index.theme". Is this the correct file?
How you can change you're gdm gtk3 theme with fedora 15. Prerequisite: gnome-tweak-tool and a terminal (gnome-terminal) Open gnome-terminal:
Code: su - ( insert password) Now we are root and the first step is to install gnome-tweak-tool if you already did this skip this. Install gnome-tweak-tool
Code: yum install gnome-tweak-tool Now we make the gdm user available to make changes:
Code: # xhost +SI:localuser:gdm If you did this right you get this message:
Code: localuser:gdm being added to access control list Next we will fire up gnome-tweak-tool
Code: # sudo -u gdm gnome-tweak-tool
This will start gnome-tweak-tool as the user gdm (sudo -u username will start the application as designated user). Now we can change the interface gtk+theme, icon theme and cursor theme to whatever you like. Don't forget to change windows current theme to what you want.
How to change gdm login background: Code: # sudo -u gdm gnome-control-center Here you can change the background
And when you're done exit the gnome-tweak-tool or gnome-control-center and type: Code: # exit (ps the # sign is the sign you're running the command as ROOT don't copy it!!
I overwrote this laptop from an Ubuntu installation to Fedora 15 (Gnome 3 doesn't work, in fallback mode) and unfortunately the theme is messed up. Using Gnome-Tweak tool I cannot change the shell theme, instead I get the message Quote:Could not list shell extensionsAny way to bypass or clear out so it returns to default?---------- Post added at 10:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:12 PM ----------After reboot I had kernel crashes and the system would not boot up anymore. So I re-installed over the previous one, and modified the .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2 and .gnome2_private before connecting my /home directory to the folder
How can I change the login theme in Fedora 10. I googled for so long but I am not able to get an answer for Fedora 10. And unlike Fedora 8 there is no option in System -> Administration -> Login Window . This option is no there in Fedora 10 . is it some missing components or do I need to install additional package.
I was looking up how to change my login screen to something pretty cool, and I kept seeing GDM pop up. So i have been looking all over my machine to find it, and found a bunch of GDM stuff, but have no idea how to set it up? How can I change my login screen theme??
I am trying to change plymouth theme. but when I try to change it using plymouth-set-default-themeI am getting this/usr/lib64/plymouth/script.so does not existGoogle did not have much to say either. I am using F14 KDE spin.y plymouth version is .8.4-0.20100823.7
For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.
The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.
I backed up .themes from /home, but on trying to install them (files don't show as theme packages) it says "There was an error installing the selected file, index.theme doesn't appear to be a valid theme". Did I backup the right thing?
i am using opensuse 11.4 and i reinstalled it 4 days before.i have changed the cursor theme,login theme etc.after the reinstall i forgot how to change them.so please tell me how to change cursor theme,login theme,boot splash?
I enjoy using vim from lxterminal with the black background, as well as awesome with its dark theme. I configured xfe manually to be darkish, and i use darklooks as a GTK theme to suit it as well. I could say all my desktop looks pretty dark, which my eyes thank me for. I also use redshift.But problems come along when surfing the web. Most web pages (including this one) have very bright styles. They are not the problem themselves, but switching from my windows hurts my eyes since it's a quick change to a much brighter screen.What would you do, either:
1. Use everything with a brighter background and putting the screen brightness a bit lower. (changing the GTK theme to clearlooks, using lxterminal with a white background, etc.)
2. Use some color theme with uzbl so that pages would look much darker. (like when you set manually the text and background colors in Firefox/Iceweasel)
I would myself go with the second one if most pages wouldn't look that bad when modified that way. For example, many pages use non-transparent images with white backgrounds on white pages, so if you change the background to black not only it looks horrible but it too is a mess.
I installed a theme in emerald, and it didn't do anything, like, it had no effect on my windows or anything. So i did some searching and the only thing i could find was to run "emerald --replace" in the terminal, and it worked, but if I exit out of the terminal, it reverts back to the old theme.How do I keep emerald's theme, even after I exit the terminal?
I was ubuntu 10.10 user and i installed macubuntu theme there but recently i upgraded my ubuntu to 11.04 and now the macubuntu theme is still exist. But i don want to make it avail anymore. how can i remove the theme from ubuntu 11.04 to use default theme of 11.04?
I was playing with some gtk2 themes and , unaware of the consequences, i manually changed folder icons from folder properties for some of the folders (desktop, document, music, etc) in my home directory. The problem now is that these folder icons do not change when i change the icon theme. how can i bring it back to normal?
When I try to change my mouse cursor theme through gnome-appearance-properties, my cursor only changes to the selected themes in only certain situations, but is the default most of the time. Due to some vision problems, it is hard for me to see the default cursor, and would prefer a size 24 DMZ-Black theme for the pointer.
I've been searching for some solutions, and it looks like Compiz has taken over some duties regarding the mouse cursor and how it looks. That's fine, I love Compiz, I use the screen magnifier and zoom all the time - so turning Compiz off is not an option.
Most solutions I've found call for changing the mouse theme in compiz. However, most of those posts are at least 2 years old, and my current version of ccsm doesn't have an option to change the mouse theme. I found 'cursor_size' and 'cursor_theme' in gconf-editor (apps > compiz > general > allscreens > options), but making those keys match those found in (desktop > gnome > peripherals > mouse) has brought me no success.
I'm using Lucid Lynx with all updated packages, upgraded from Karmic.
I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04, and was doing some visual tweaking. One of the things I was doing was changing my mouse. I was having trouble so I played trying to get it to work. I've since found what the problem was here;But when I was trying to fix it, I installed bunch of other themes and tried them as well.When I did this I lost the theme that I wanted from the pointer menu. Thinking that maybe there was a limit to the number of X-11 mouse themes allowed I deleted all the ones that I had installed, and tried to install the theme I wanted again.
The issue seems to be that I can't install this theme again. The error window says "Failed. Can't move directory over directory". I assume that the computer made a copy of the file somewhere. I just can't find where. I tried the home directory and ctrl + h but I can't see anything there.
When i install a mouse theme via appearance settings it only works in firefox and other applications.The theme does not work on my desktop and other various places.I have viewed other threads regarding this error and the only fix would be to change the mouse theme in ccsm but fore some odd reason i do not have the option to change mouse themes in ccsm, i have looked everyware in ccsm and i can not find anyware to change the mouse theme?
