I went to:Configure Desktop > Appearance > Icons > Get New Themesand I chose a new theme by clicking "Install." Now it shows it as installed (has "uninstall" button) but when I go to "Customize KDE Icons" it doesn't show up. I tried logging out and back in but it still won't show as a choice (but it's still "installed" somewhere).
Using OpenSuse 11.2 RC2. After playing around to install the nvidia driver, Yast lost its beautiful initial colours (light blue, as the rest of the kde desktop) and became a bit uglier (dark blue, more rudimentary, etc; I think the default "unbranded KDE"'s colour).I have the KDE theme set either for the regular user and for root. I have also installed the packages yast2-theme-openSUSE and yast2-theme-openSUSE-Oxygen installed but, how shall I choose one of them?Some webs say that there is an option in Yast under "miscellaneous" to choose Yast's theme, but I do not have it.
I am trying to install the mac os icon theme for awn....I made sure my theme download is for awn but when I go into my awn settings and select theme then install/browse to apply the theme file I downloaded nothing happens?
I'm slowly getting used to Gnome 3 and trying to give it a chance. After a few oddities (like it swallowing my Gnome Shell and Tilda invocations because I use Super in them) then I think I'm slowly getting used to it. There are still some things I miss from Compiz, but it has potential and I like some bits (the notifications and dialogs).I don't know what got upgraded, but my themes seemed to be working before yet today I've got the default Sonar rather than my darker Sonar theme with a fixed Chromium style. I've managed to change the titlebar theme, but I can't change the GTK theme or the icon theme.
Running "gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme" reports "Tango-green", but I still have the default icon theme and using Appearances only partially works.Running "gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme" reports "SonarLighter" (the menu bar is lighter to match the Uniq theme) but I'm definitely seeing Sonar.I've tried gnome-tweak-tool from someone's OBS, but various dependencies seem to be missing (first it bails with the wrong GI version, then I updated some other bits and tried again, but even after switching a dozen or more packages then it never started).
how to change this icon to match the theme. Seems to be to only application so far that has not picked up the correct icon. The quick launch icon is correct, but not the task manager icon. It seems to be picking it up from some other location before using the one in the theme file.
Under root/usr/lib/firefox there are some default icons. Also under root/usr/share/pixmaps there are a couple icons for firefox. All these match the one pictured. The icon under root/usr/share/apps is the correct one for the theme. These are the only locations that I am aware of with exception of the theme file.
Would renaming the icons under lib/firefox and share/pixmaps force it to use the themed icon?
It seems that this firefox icon is a problem with any icon theme that I use.
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 have recently installed Faenza icon theme and just began to notice the inconsistency of icon emblems being displayed by compiz.Attached image shows the emblems of Chromium, Nautilus and Comix are that of the default icons, while Empathy andCompizConfigSettingsManager displayed the custom icon correctly. The dock displays all apps' icons correctly though.The issue does not occur exclusively to Application Switcher (Alt+Tab), it also occurs with Scale (Super+W), Shift Switcher (Super+Tab).
I have d/l and am using an icon theme I got from gnome-look. I like all the icons except for a few, specifically the trash, and would like to change them but I can't figure out how. I d/l an empty and full trash icon. I looked in the /home/username/.icons/themename folder and found the two trash icons that came with the theme (they were in ~/.icons/themename/scalable/places). Changed the names of the ones I d/l and replaced those current ones with them.how to do this? I would also like to change the Menu Bar icon back to the gnome foot.
I have an application which uses 256k as blocksize. And I would like to have a filesystem which handles I/O blocksize as near as possible to this blocksize.
I can not use EXT3, because that will be to small blocks. I was getting into problem to use XFS; because that has some dependencies to the PAGESIZE in the kernel, it can not use bigger blocksizes than the PAGESIZE in the kernel.
What more opertunities do I have? Or how can I get XFS to work with bigger blocks.?
If I download and install an icon theme in 10.04, but for certain applications would prefer the "default" icon, how would I change that? I noticed that if the theme doesn't have a "custom" icon for a program, then it does use the default one.
I have the Faenza Icon Theme installed, but it seems blueman-applet could care less. The applet's icon does change to use the Bluetooth application icon, but when it is active or disabled, it uses the icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/24/status/.
Part of the problem may be that Faenza has the status icon named bluetooth-active/bluetooth-disabled instead of blueman-active/blueman disabled. However, even if I rename these in /usr/share/icons/Faenza/24/status/, nothing changes. If I copy the icons into the first location mentioned and rename them, it does work. I don't have a problem doing this, but if I ever change themes, I'll have to do it again. Anyway I can make it use the icon theme?
After I had upgraded the system to Fedora 14, the icons for pretty much everything except for programs and plain text files in gnome theme (and every other theme that shares them) became inaccessible - they are replaced by a standard icon that appears when no other is found. Other themes, that share no icon with gnome (tango, gnome-colors, etc.), work correctly. I'm using Xfce desktop.
I've deleted icon-theme.cache, but it did nothing.
I really like the new, MacOS-like icons in the taskbar. The problem is that if I change the icon theme (to something else than the themes present in ubuntu by default;e the Shiki-Wise theme) the nice icons in the taskbar are gone too. Is there a way of keeping those?
I have got my Ubuntu desktop looking exactly how I want it apart from one little thing. I would like Docky to use a different icon theme then the one I am using for gnome. See these are the icons I want to use on Gnome/Nautilus: But these are the icons I want for Docky: So what I want to end up with is this: I have had a look in gconf-editor to see if there are any settings to do this but there doesn't seem to be any, I even tried adding a stringvalue with "icon_theme" and putting in the theme I wanted to use but that didn't work. Is there anyway I can manual edit a Docky config file to tell it what icon theme to use?
I'm sure there's a really easy way to do this in the Configuration Wizard, but what I want to do is change the icon that is usually the Ubuntu icon that is now the Gnome icon (after having installed the "Slick Red" theme back to being the Ubuntu symbol. On the very top Left of the screenshot: [URL]
my folder emblems just stay grey. I don't know what it is I did that caused it but when I try to change the theme the folder emblems just stay the same (grey and simple) but it looks different on my panel.
currently using, openSuSE v11.1 kde v4.3.1.i have, bootsplash, splashy, kdm4 installed.im trying to install the 'fingerprint' theme upon boot.I have autologin enabled for kde. I've tried to install it via splashy, 'splashy_config --set-theme fingerprint' and it works when i do 'splashy --test fingerprint' but when i reboot it doesnt implement it. same old green theme.have also tried to install it through 'login manager' it says its loaded but again, reboot and same default opensuse green logos. ive been following instruction from the theme located at kde-look.org. it looks fantastic.
I'm trying to install a KDE splash screen. I go to Menu --> Config Desktop --> General --> Look and Feel --> Splash Screen --> Gte new themes. There I select and click "install" for "planet exp". All goes well except the new splash screen does not appear in the list of available splash screens.
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 am using gnome 2.X in opensuse11.4. I found that each time I log off ,the gnome theme changed automatically to the default one. When I right click the mouse in the desktop, it changed back again to my setting
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 installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.
I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.
I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.
I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.
So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.
Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!
