Dowhat submitted December 2015 by Lucubrate
I liked Agua, Agualemon and particularly Pills themes, the colour of buttons were vivid and plain.
I also liked Kindakar, Kermic and Tux for the title manipulation.
In short my effort is a mimic of some really good Themes by the guys above. Thank you
My buttons were made by just drawing a square,ish filled with colour and then >Filters > Bumps >Relief Print used in Inkscape.
I have added a yellow area, this is so I can easily see which window is open.
If you want to install system wide, extract to /usr/share/themes/.
If you just want to try it then extract to ~/.local/share/themes /. if the themes folder is not there then install it. As you are installing into your home directory there should be no tears.
You have to logout and back in again to see your changes, if you extract to /usr/share/themes/
If you are a newbie, this is what I do.
Open a Terminal
tar -xzvf Dowhat.tar.gz
cp -r Dowhat ~/.local/share/themes/
line 1 moves to the Downloads directory from wherever you are.
line 2 extracts the file Peggy into Downloads directory.
line 3 copies the Peggy directory to ~/.local/share/themes/. Its in your local themes directory
Take a look at Dowhat. Next save so you can use again:
cp -r ~/Downloads/Dowhat.tar.gz ./
line 1 moves to home directory.
line 2 makes a store directory, call it any name you want. this will store all your bits you want to keep from Downloads.
line 3 move to new store directory.
line 4 copies Dowhat.tar.gz from Downloads to your store directory.
next clear your rubbish :
rm -r Dowhat.tar.gz Dowhat
line 1 move to Downloads
line 2 delete Peggy.tar.gz. I keep Downloads clear as possible so I dont get confused or clash with another downloaded package.
Files preceded with a dot are hidden files ie .local is hidden.
To see the .local file press >View >Show Hidden Files on the File Manager.
To see the .local file in Terminal type
to see both hidden and normal file type
Lastly goto settings and change to Dowhat. its done.
I know there is a million ways to do this, you may do it with less commands.
I remember being new myself and it takes ages to find the answer you want.
Hope you like it.
