how to install theme in ubuntu 2.30..?


KDE - Dec 15 2011
answered
Question:when am tring to copy theme folder to usr/share/theme.. it doesnt copying.. .
seeing error that "no permission"..
what i have to do..??
please help me.. . .





Answer:"/usr" and all it's subfolders are writeable only for the administrator (root). So if you really want to copy something there you have to "sudo cp -R <whatever> <whereever>" (No clue about ubuntu...maybe there is also something like "run filemanager as root" or "copy files as root" in the desktop environment also.)

And now the big but....why?

If you copy the theme files to "/usr/share/themes" you may be able to load the theme as every user...but for that be be useful you need to have several users first all wanting that theme. The disadvantage of copy the files there is that you are responsible for them yourself...meaning no package manager for easy uninstall if you messed something up. But for themes it's really not needed at all to install them globaly. You can just install the theme in your home directory in "~/.kde4/share/apps/desktoptheme" ("~" is your home folder, ".kde4" is the hidden config folder of KDE and if "desktoptheme" doesn't exist just create it). This should work fine and doesn't need any root privileges.
