Uninstalling Themes

Postby ChipButty on Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:06 pm

Can somebody tell me how to unistall themes in XFCE. I installed the Ambient Crunchy theme from http://xfce-look.org/content/show.php/?content=151180 and don't want to keep it. I've searched around for an answer but haven't come up with one.

Open Menu: File Manager

Click on your home folder if necessary.

In View menu: Show hidden files - Make sure it's checked.

Open the .themes folder

Trash the theme folder(s) inside.

Ha! Well now I had thought of those methods of course and that's exactly what I would do on my Mac but I'm a novice Linux user and am never quite sure about delelting things. I guess there's no dependencies with these themes anyway so it won't be an issue. Thanks guys!
