Themes won't delete

Postby Qoheleth » Sun Sep 30, 2012 3:52 am

In workspace appearance -> themes, if I install a them and uninstall it, the option to select it still remains and can even be applied. Bug? Or does it work this way?

What version of mint, what desktop, how did you install and uninstall the themes and to where?

If my chance your using Linux Mint 13 w/ Cinnamon you just have to delete them out of the ~/.themes/ folder you could do it through nautilus or nemo or "rm" them from the command line
+Linux Mint 13 Maya Cinnamon 64Bit+|Ubuntu 12.04.1 64bit| +GA-G41MT-S2PT w/ Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @3.00Ghz 4GiB's DDR3 1066Mhz Ram 250+160Gb HDD's+ Apple PowerPC 7400 G4 400Mhz 2GiBs SDRam AGPx2 ATI Rage 128 Pro Graphics card 40+80Gb HDD's
