MX themes [solved]

#1 Post by colin_b » Tue Jul 10, 2018 6:52 pm

I downloaded the Adapta Gtk Theme last night. I mixed it up with the Numix icon theme. I love it :happy:

Here's a screenshot:

When I downloaded the theme from the repo my instinct was to look in the themes in MX Tweak when it had downloaded. The theme wasn't there, so I dug around to find where to set it up.

Would it be possible to add themes downloaded from the repo to the MX Tweak theme list? It would save digging around after downloading them.

tweak isn't meant to be a general theme switcher. tweak's list is a set of pre-generated sets of themes, which include window manager, gtk, and icon themes. I did a video on making your own set definition here:

any downloaded themes in ~/.local/share/themes and /usr/share/themes should show up in "Appearance" and "Window Manager Settings" though, (accessible from the menu, Xfce Settings, and mx-tweak)

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

It was just a thought I had while I was tinkering.

Thanks for the info.
