Ubuntu :: Shows Themes Only In ~/.themes Folder

Aug 25, 2010

Since of late "Appearance preference" behaves awkwardly . Normaly It is supposed to show themes in /usr/share/themes right? but now it shows themes only in ~/.themes folder. I don't know what affected the change. how do I configure it as to show themes in /usr/share/themes/,?

Also whatever theme I use , Controls would stay same(Classic controls). They wouldn't be update to those of the Theme used.

Ubuntu :: Chane ONLY Icon Themes, Not Panel Themes?

Aug 6, 2010

I would like to install a new icon theme without effecting my currently selected panel theme, as i think the Ambience panel theme looks really nice and unified but im not too keen on the Ubuntu-Mono icons.Is this easily possible, without going into my icon folders and replacing all the instances of one style for another?Are there any applications for gnome icon theming like OS X's Candybar?Im sure others must desire to change only the icons and perhaps it is really easy and this is why i couldnt dig anythin up on google, that or im a useless googler.

Ubuntu :: Use Different GDM Login Themes In 11.04?

Jul 4, 2011

But I am becoming very annoyed by the fact that I cannot customize/change my Login window in Ubuntu 11.04.

It's not soo much the fact that I can't get it to look the way I want.. But the fact that the options arent even available/ won't even work anymore.

(Brilliant idea whoever thought of removing it!)

I am not asking how to change the login screen background (wallpaper) I already know how to do that, and have it changed to what I want.

I need to do one of 2 things, (or both)

1. Change the login theme to something nicer. (like you used to be able to do with GDM2setup). ~The actual login window/box is what I want to change.


2. Change the current (plain, boxy, white) login window so that it is transparent.

I've seriously been looking around for at least a week on and off, and there is no solution for 11.04 users that I can find.

I keep seeing all over the place. "How to change Ubuntu 11.04 login screen/theme" etc, Yet all those sites are useless, as all they mention is "Ubuntu Tweak" to change the background and "ubuntu logo"..

As stated, I already know this , and how to do it.. So Ubuntu tweak is not what I need here.

How freaking difficult does it have to be to customize something soo simple? I thought this was LINUX. You know, where you can customize all of your stuff, the way you want it? Not have to be stuck with things the way the developers thought it "should be".

There is this "new app" called SLiM" that can supposedly do this, But it breaks everyones system on 11.04, So that idea is shot.

Ubuntu :: How To Change Themes And Graphics

May 24, 2010

I've been having a lot of fun customizing the plymouth splash.I know how to change themes and I know how to set my graphic.I've read all of the posts regarding plymouth and I have some simple questions.

-what is the RGB value of the current purply background?
-can I change the background color?
-how does one go about making a plymouth module? (.so file)

In my customizations I have been able to swap the logo but not the background, I would like to change the background color to black, barring that I would like to change the background of my image to match the current purple/lavender/magenta whatever color is there now.And I have a sneaking suspicion that the bg color is set in the .so file

Ubuntu :: Old Revisions Of KDE Oxygen Themes Available

Jun 9, 2010

I was wondering if old revisions of KDE's oxygen theme are available. Specifically I am looking for the theme that shipped with KDE 4.1 (Kubuntu 8.10), and more particularly I am interested in the kicker theme. I attached a screenshot to show you what I mean. I virtualized Kubuntu 8.10 and grabbed all the themes from /usr/share/kde(4?)/aps/desktopthemes/ and transfered them to my main install, which is using kde 4.4.3, but themes where light colored (i.e. the kicker was light gray and didn't look anything like they did in KDE 4.1).

I don't think it is a compatibility issue because I compared the 4.1 themes with the 4.4 themes and they had the same directory structure and config file format (and the Elegance theme looked the same). So in short, does anyone know where I can download the Oxygen theme from KDE 4.1, or if there is something that I am doing wrong making the old version light colored on KDE 4.4?

Ubuntu :: Can't Uninstall Themes Completely ?

Jun 21, 2010

I use Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope). I recently installed four themes, Mac4Lin, Tigris, Raptor Slickness remix and SlicknesS. I dragged them into the Appearance Preferences window to install them (in the Themes tab). I didn't like the themes and uninstalled them. But, while I was customising the original theme (Human), I saw that window controls and borders of the theme were not uninstalled (1st attachment). Also, if I want to reinstall the themes, I get an error (2nd attachment). I have checked if any folders named after these themes were there in "/usr/share/themes", but didn't find any. How am I to uninstall these themes completely?

Ubuntu :: GTK Engines Won't Recognize Their Themes

Sep 7, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 64 bits in my laptop because its kernel version is the only one that will recognize my fan, so upgrading to another version of Ubuntu is not a solution to this problem:So far everything has been working correctly except the capability of some GTK engines to recognize themes: they look like Windows 95 (I'm guessing they take the Raleigh GTK theme because they don't recognize the one I installed).

I've installed, uninstalled and reinstalled several times the Murrine, Equinox, Aurora and Pixbuf GTK engines, without luck. I've installed them from Synaptics (adding the source for some of them) or downloading them from gnome-look, but the problem persists.They both use Equinox, Aurora and Murrine. I'm guessing the problem is with the Murrine engine, because the "New Wave" theme that comes installed by default with Ubuntu doesn't look right either, and it uses that engine.I don't know what else to do, I disabled the Compiz effects but the problem is still there.
