New to themes?

create a folder, in your home directory ~/.themes
for example mine is /home/justus/.themes
the dot before themes means it is hidden and linked to /usr/share/themes
Can not find it? go to your file menubar, click View, click Show Hidden
Now, download your chosen theme, right click the downloaded file,
chose extract here, grab the extracted file and drop in your .themes folder.
Then open up your favorite appearance manager and select the newly installed
theme.
There are other ways to install themes but this is the best way!
It allows you to control or change parts of the theme without
going to root and possibly doing some harm to your file system.

You may also consider creating a folder called ~/.icons
where you can place downloaded icon themes and mouse cursor themes

And another folder callled ~/.fonts
where you can place downloaded fonts

I'd like to learn how to modify Xinit so that the application icons appear within the menu listings.

Thanks, again.

Thanks Derick,

That is one of the easier modifications
to make.

We have conversed before and I could answer this in fewer words, however
for others who would like to know
having no prior knowledge, I will
rehash to the basics.

1. It does not matter what desktop enviroment you are running. Please,
always unpack/unzip/untar your themes
and place them yourself in
/home/justus/.themes
of course instead of justus which is my
login name you would use your own login
name.
You will have to create this folder
in your home folder and make sure you
place the dot before themes, .themes
This gives you the rights/permissions
you need to edit/remove/rename/
This folder is automaticly linked to
/usr/share/themes where your distribution themes are located.
Also, the dot before .themes makes
it a hidden folder, so you will have
to select show hidden folders in your file managers view or make a shortcut
to it, like you see in many of my screenshots of thunar, my file manager.
So, If you do not do this step and
let your appearance manager handle installation, it will place all themes
in /usr/share/themes where in order
to make theme adjustments you would
then be required to edit as root or sudo, where a small mistake could cause major complications.

2.You need to open /home/justus/.themes/Xinit/gtk-2.0 remember to use your own login name and not justus.

Everything is controlled with/by
the gtkrc file located in the
gtk-2.0 folder.

So, you would open the gtkrc file
with your text editor.

At the top of the gtkrc file you will see this:
# Xinit
# amended by daman
# free to modify in any... way,shape or form
# when completed,please... share your work

#Remove icon images from menu, buttons, toolbar @ change to 1 to enable
gtk-menu-images = 0
gtk-button-images = 0
gtk-toolbar-style= 0

if you want icons in your menus just
enable or change the 0 to a 1.

Here I have enabled all icon images
the first is for menu, second is for
icons in button images , the third is
for the toolbar.

gtk-menu-images = 1
gtk-button-images = 1
gtk-toolbar-style= 1

3. Finally, after you make changes with
your text editor.
Save your changes.
Go to the menubar,
select File tab, and then select
the Save line. To save the changes
to the file.

Then just restart your theme or log out and now your own your way
to making your own personal theme.


of course Derick you need only enable
the first gtk-menu-images = 1

Since, I have left KDE and its massive
menu, I have not the need of icons
in my menus.
However, sometimes it is handy
and I have been working on updating
my fifyways theme and enabling the
menu icon option with those great looking retro Faenza Icons.
I think it would add to the Steampunk
look.

Downloaded your modification of Xinit; thought you'd like to know that your xfwm4 implementation works fine!!

It's always great when someone designs their theme with xfce in mind as I and others tend to choose that environment to work in.

Thanks.

Somehow, Christmas wallpaper and dark themes such as this don't mix, at least not to my eyes, anyway...

Just a little holiday cheer.
When I resubmit a theme that has
lots of changes I like to update the
screenshots.

Ha, as of this minute I have 214 wallpapers in my folder. It is highly
unusual for me to have the same wallpaper
past three days.

In this case I used the wallpaper as
a eye catch to draw interest, low
downloading and it seems to be working.
Also, It reminded me of long past holidays, with a unique look.

You can download the wallpaper here:

Essential theme for X! Thanks a lot!
How about including the XFWM theme?
I'll deeply appreciate for that. :D

Your request is done.
I spent some time on this, but I
can not see the results, an openbox user.
Hopefully, the result is satisfactory,
if not please send me a link to a screenshot.

Great!

Thanks, for letting me know.

Whoever implemented xfwm4, my hats
off to them. It was so simple and
straight forward, like a breath of
fresh air. I was so sure something
was missing and it would not work.

Glad to hear, I was fretting for naught.

Aplauso!! Barbaro!!

Efficient yet, elegant theme. Works fine in YDL 6.2 utilizing XFCE.

Elegant and yet understated. I would have liked brighter hints of blue and less gray but it is really fine as you designed it.

Thanks Derick,

Well, what can I say...
I had to restrain myself on this one.
My idea was to represent a theme,
I would like to see appear before
my eyes when booting into a
new Linux operating system.
Entering X that first time and just
praying that get a theme and not
some error code or a frozen screen.
A theme that was Zen like, with just
a little pop.

It's just the style theme I like with the sharp, clean, gray look. A nice piece of work, hope to see more.
