I have installed some kdm themes (ethais, NewEssenceFinal, oxygen, oxygen-air, MIB-Ossigeno-Kdm-Neutral-2.2) that I would like to try out and they are present in "/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/".
Changing the theme through SystemSettings>Login Screen changed nothing, logging out still defaulted to the default SUSE theme. So I tried the SysConfig editor through YAST and changed DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME to the theme I wanted, still no change after logging out. I have also changed DISPLAYMANAGER to kdm4.
Opened the "/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager" file to make sure the correct line had changed, and it was.
I deleted the SUSE theme, again made sure the theme I wanted was selected, but now it defaults to a background wallpaper and rather plain looking login screen. I don't know if this is correct but I am using the folder name of the theme I want as the string I enter into SysConfig. I have even rebooted several times just in case it was required. I have tried this through my regular account, obviously entering my root password when required, and also through the root account itself.
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?
openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 release 2.I can change the desktop theme and the splash theme, but I can not change the KDM login manager theme.First, I changed th setting /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME from suse to nothing in Yast -> /etc/sysconfig editor in order to get rid of the ugly Suse login theme.That resulted in having the traditional KDM login theme with the clock.I go to Personal Settings -> Advanced tab -> System: Login Manager (I enter the root password).In tab "General" I checked "Use themed greeter". Gui style and color scheme are set to default.In tab "Theme" I select a theme, click apply, then clikc ok.I log out and log in again. Nothing has changed. I still have the oldstyle KDM login theme.
I'm on openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.3 RC, and I'm using the kde-branding-openSUSE with KDM from the factory KDE repo, and factory community repo - everything is up-to-date.For some reason my KDM login settings screen is ALL grayed out, so I can't change the theme/settings. I know that you can change it by going to yast and editing the /etc/sysconfig thinghich I actually tried doing, and failing, which is odd because I changed it once a ltime ago to glassified, but can't manage to do now...) I don't want to use a theme, though, but actually use my current wallpaper and set the settings in the login manager to something of my preference.
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 can't change my GDM theme any more nor will I be able to in the next version of Ubuntu! I know why (the gnome developers took the feature out in the re-write of GDM). I have two questions. Why is GDM so bloated that they can't re-write all of the features? It also seems to take a lot of resources (more than the others). My second question. When, if ever, will I be able to customize my gdm theme again?
What happened to the gdm configuration screen where I could change the default gdm theme? This seems to have disappeared from ubuntu 10.04, and in my personal opinion, the white/purple default theme of the new gdm is terrible and I would like to change it. Where is the GUI for this in lucid, and why has it disappeared?
EDIT: System -> Administration -> Login Screen only allows me to change automatic logins and other features like that. The GUI I'm referring to isn't there.
I can get to System / Preference / Appearance / Theme in 10.04 but when I decide I want to use the Clearbooks theme and open it, there is no icon to click to install it. Exactly how does this work, step by step?
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
I've decided to migrate from gnome to openbox but I'm having a few issues with lxappearance in order to change the gtk theme. When I run lxappearance I get the following error (lxappearance:3812): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated And I'm unable to change any of the themes. When I do try and change the theme I get the following (lxappearance:381: Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated.
I am trying to use Emerald Theme Manager and I have downloaded a theme, imported it and it's showing there but it won't change on the desktop.licking thheme...pressing enter while its highed...nothing changes
Got a simple question about xubuntu. I installed it from ubuntu via 'xubuntu-desktop' package and all seems to be working fine. My ubuntu programs and files appear in xubuntu and run normally. However, when I change the theme, the metacity window frame remains the same. How do I change it? It's stuck with the last used ubuntu metacity theme.
Recently I noticed my system theme changed itself to a grey blocky look that I can only assume is the gnome default. I cannot change it back to anything else, like Ambiance or Dust through the appearance window.
I run Compiz and Emerald for effects and themes. Compiz effects and Emerald's window borders work fine, I have my Emerald theme but the icons, menus and buttons are all this ugly old look and I cannot change it. I have tried reloading the window manager, rebooting, switching Compiz and Emerald off and using Metacity and GTK Window Decorator, but the theme doesn't change. I can't change buttons, menus, colors or icons.
When I open System > Prefs > Appearance, I can choose a theme and oddly enough it changes the theme for the appearance window, but only the appearance window and nothing else.
I have a customized Ubuntu 10.04 TLS Desktop running. I have all the task and tool bars removed and only icons on the desktop are left.My question is how do I change the Theme without using the menus but by editing the config files instead? What config files do I edit to make the change?So far I added these 2 files:.gconf/desktop/gnome/interface/%gconf.xml
I am running 11.04 on a Dell Inspiron 1500 series laptop. I updated my computer yesterday, and now my desktop theme is different. In 10.04, changing the theme was easy, just go to appearance settings and choose. For some reason, when I go to appearance and select a theme now, the only options I get are customize and install, neither of which do anything to help me change my theme. The install button takes me to my home directory...presumably to pick a theme file. But I can't find any themes in my home directory.
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 have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my laptop. I've installed Compiz and Emerald, and I am trying use Emerald to change the themes. I open Emerald, import a theme, and select it. Nothing happens. I've searched on Google, and people have said to type "emerald --replace". This is what I get when I try it:Code:colin@TheDarkSideOfTheMoon:~$ emerald --replace Segmentation faultThen the top bar on all my windows disappears. I've reinstalled it multiple times, but it still won't cooperate
I'm pretty new to Linux's. I've been slowly learning, and I really enjoy these. I have a speech in class to persuade the class about anything of my choice. I chose to try and convince them that Linux is a much better operating system than either Mac or Windows. I got a lot of data and had a thought that if i were to get an old computer to run very fast it would definitely turn some heads. So I loaded Puppy Linux on it and I want to find a way to make it look like Windows 7 and give the power point on it, then to pull back the podium and show them that I did all of it on a HP6633C computer made for Windows 98. I thought that it would definitely bring my point across. Any advice on how to get the effect I'm looking for?
