I cannot select other themes, but they seem to be installed

Postby eoinoc333 » Sun Apr 22, 2012 12:44 pm

Hey,

I seem to have a number themes installed:

Code: Select all

me@computer:~$ ls /usr/share/themes/
Adwaita          Emacs                Murrine
AgingGorilla     eOS                  New-Elements
Atlanta          Esco                 PepperMint
Aurora           Felicia              Raleigh
Aurora-Midnight  Frost                Redmond
AuroraMint       Gilouche             Shiki-Colors-Easy-Metacity
Bright           HighContrast         Shiki-Colors-Metacity
Carbon           HighContrastInverse  Shiki-Colors-Striped-Metacity
Cassandra        Industrial           Shiki-Wise
ChocoLatte       Lightning            Simple
Clearlooks       LowContrast          Spidey
ClearlooksRe     Metabox              Spidey-Left
Crux             Mint-X               Splint
Dark-Glass       Mint-X-Metal         Splint-Left
Default          Minty                ThinIce
Dopple           Mint-Z               Trans-Blues
Dopple-Left      Mint-Z-Dark          WildMint
DustBlue         Mint-Z-Mate          WinMe
Eleganse         Mist                 WoodnTux
ElementaryOS     Murrina-Blue


Problem is, only three themes are listed in the dropdown list in the Appearance application (Adwaita, HighContrast, and HighContrastInverse).

Any ideas on why I can't select the other installed themes?

Which dropdown list are you accessing when you have this problem? Is it the Window theme, the Icon theme, or the GTK+ theme? See if there is an index.theme file in each of the folders of the themes that are not showing up. If not, try copying one from another theme folder that does show up.
Main: Intel Core i7 920 D0 @ 4.0 GHz | Asus P6X58D Premium | 12 GB Mushkin Redline PC3-12800 7-8-7-24 | EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti | Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64 / OS X 10.7.3
Portables: Toshiba Portege R200 | Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 32 / Dell Mini 9 | OS X 10.6.7

Which desktop, which release?
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
