Ok, I just installed eos kde plasma to try on my thinkpad. still running gnome on my other computer
First thing I did was to go to global theme and I installed the nordic them to try it out.
How can I deinstall this theme? I went on get new global theme and filtered installed themes but nothing shows up. I also went into /usr/share/plasma/look-feel but only see the breeze theme. The nordic theme is definitely still in the gui settings and available to choose but no way to deinstall. Is that a known bug?
Also the nordic theme makes all icons on dolphin disappear, do I also need to install a separate icon theme? Thought global themes include all in one…
Ah ok, so I need to find a separate icon theme in addition to global theme. Thought global theme includes that but it seems not. nordic theme and breeze icons don’t like each other. That was a bit confusing to me.
Ok that worked, I had to install separately the nordic theme in global. Then I found a nordic-darker in icon themes and installed that too. Now it looks pretty decent. Not sure I want to deinstall it anymore now
Mmh… logout and also reboot, nordic is still missing from that window. I selected show only installed entries From the filter. When I search for nordic theme it also shows the install button.
Thats really weird. I recall thats why I never really messed with community themes. Sometimes they can be uninstalled sometimes they don’t. I wish they would just implement an uninstall button in the global theme window directly.
Edit: in the grand scheme of things it’s not that important. Glad they polish this DE as is.
That whole KDE install GUI thing has always been buggy right the way back thru KDE4 even. It’s still crap! The better way takes a bit longer, but if you look up the themes in the AUR and install them via cli OR go to the KDE Store then download them and place the themes/icons/whatever in the relevant folders and reboot it creates much less hassle.
Yes that was the way I learned to do it. Was just expecting this to be fixed in the gui, they did so many leaps and may be good to fix to not put off a total linux newbie. Obviously I am just a kde gui theming newbie but know linux and mostly terminal and config folders.
Btw, I though the accent color would be a small useless improvement before I tried it, I actually love it!
That being said, I was always wondering if any of you guys know, how can even someone create such beautiful window/global theming, it looks like that cannot be tweaked via gui, are themers doing that via scripting?
