How to - install 'other' themes (e16)
August 06, 2007 06:47PM
I had a few challenges (and not all resolved) - with installing a theme from freshmeat... (or other than repos - which I've had problems with some not finding sounds...)

I've only tested this on e16...

basically - it's like this:

download the tar/.tar.gz file of your choice

create (as root) - a folder for the theme in

as root - extract the files into that folder


for the aqua theme - if you want to remove the apple icon and etc at the top (the ones on right show in full screen) -
go to
and rename the files apple.png and rightbutton.png

Thanks for the howto

Also, Elive has themes (for e17 too) added directly on the repository:

apt-cache search e16 theme

how do you change the theme using the terminal? im not very good in a terminal

and why aren't those themes in the theme selector in the config panel?

EDIT: whoops i figured it out - i didn't realize that i hadn't actually downloaded any of those themes, i just got them from synaptic and they're in the theme selecter

wonderful :p

Ok I have followed the above instructions, but the theme does not appear under the Elive panel, what am I doing wrong?
