[Solved] Where do you put GTK+ themes that you want to/have customised, in antiX/MX?

#1 Post by handy » Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:46 am

I have a simple tutorial on editing the gtkrc file. I'm used to these directories/files paths being in use:

~/.themes/<theme.directory>/<gtk.version.being.used>/gtkrc

e.g.

~/.themes/Aero/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Can a user copy any theme(s) from /usr/share/themes that they want to use (& edit) into ~/.themes ?

I need to know this so that I can modify my tutorial to suit antiX/MX.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks rokytnji.1, I just needed to confirm that. :)

I removed the (stupid) question about how you start them. (I was in a bit more of a fog than usual yesterday...)
