MX Twek themes dont show up

#1

Post by yoshi » Mon May 13, 2019 10:42 am

Hallo,
Notl all .tweak files from /usr/share/mx-tweak-data and ~/.local/share/mx-tweak-data
show up in mx-tweak

content of /usr/share/mx-tweak-data

Code: Select all

-rw-r--r--   1 root root   294 Dec  9 00:07 arc-dark-ark-dark-ePapirus.tweak
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   298 Dec  9 00:07 greybird-arc-dark-papirus.tweak
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 18845 Nov 23  2017 mx-dark.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 22275 Nov 23  2017 mx_light.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 20823 Nov 25  2017 mx-light.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  1124 May  9 01:14 mx.tweak.template
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   296 May 12 20:16 mytest.tweak
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 20302 Nov 23  2017 nichi-horiz.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  1120 Nov 23  2017 nichi-horiz.tweak
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root  4096 Feb  6 12:59 nichi_theme
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 19367 Nov 23  2017 nichi-vert.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  1122 Nov 23  2017 nichi-vert.tweak
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 22050 Nov 23  2017 numix.jpg
-rw-r--r--   1 root root   296 Nov 23  2017 numix-themes.tweak

But only mx-* and nichi-* can be chosen from in MX-tweak

What I found is, that there is an additional information about themes which are shown in the console output when starting mx-tweak
Namely that is the "theme info hash value" for the show theme - that output does not exist for the Numix theme or any of the .tweak in the .local folder

Code: Select all

$ mx-tweak

At the bottom you can choose the themes.

This is handy trying out different themes. OCS store and ocs-url

Code: Select all

apt install ocs-url

I watched the video "Make your own Theme Set for MX-Tweak" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De7Ty9Oztx8)
by runwiththedolphins.
But he can choose his own themes and I cant - I try to find out why it doesnt work -
thats why its in the bug section :)

If a theme component is missing then the themes setting in mx tweak will not list them. At this time the theme set tool only looks in /usr for themes, not in the home folder. So that might be a factor.

thx for your hints (and your effort for this distribution) dolphin_oracle

as explained in the first post all the files are in /usr and most of them (except one)
are part of the standard installation MX- 18.1
wouldn't have expected them to be 'faulty'

Code: Select all

$ ls /usr/share/mx-tweak-data/
total 164
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   294 Dec  9  2018 arc-dark-ark-dark-ePapirus.tweak

I would have to check if all the Numix-themes stuff is pre-installed. I don't rememeber. There could be some problem.

As to your own file, you would have to post it for me to evaluate.

the numix-icon-theme package is likely not installed. if you install it, the Numix options should appear in mx-tweak.

you can place your own .tweak files in ~/.local/share/mx-tweak-data and they will be picked up as well.

make sure to give them their own name in the "Name" field in the tweak file. That's what shows up in the menu. spaces are allowed.
