Need help installing themes on Fedora Gnome...



  • I copied my newly download themes to /usr/share/themes, but I am having trouble getting them to apply correctly. Am I doing something wrong?



  • This is what I am trying....

    Install the theme by copying to /usr/share/themes. If necessary set the right permissions:

    sudo chmod -R 755 /usr/share/themes/THEME

    To set the theme, run the following commands:

    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "THEME"
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "THEME"
    gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.user-theme name "THEME"

    or via Gnome Tweak Tool



  • I've always done it through the GUI, using the ones provided by the GUI.

    It turns out I'm not a theme guy. I prefer the built-in Arc-Dark.



  • I usually put it under ~/.themes. You might need to log out and back in. I also just use tweak tool. Never done it with cli.
