How do you install themes in LM 14

Postby jacatone on Mon May 27, 2013 3:07 pm

I have a bunch of tar.bz themes left over from when I was using LXDE 12. Where do you drag and drop them in LM 14 with XFCE? Thanks.

I always create a folder in the home directory named .themes (it'll be a hidden folder so use ctl + H to view it) then extract all themes in there, it should show up in the theme selector then.

Where is the theme selector in LM 14 XFCE? I've unrared some themes into /usr/share/themes, but they don't seem to appear anywhere?
