Im trying to migrate one user account over to a new one. Bit stuck with my theme/colors.
so i moved my theming folder /home/user/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/mytheme/ over to my new profile
[greg-pc greg]# ls -la /home/user/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/mytheme/
drwxr-xr-x 4 greg greg 4096 Aug 27 2018 .
drwxr-xr-x 22 greg greg 4096 Jul 2 2020 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 greg autologin 2739 Aug 17 2018 colors
drwxr-xr-x 2 greg greg 4096 Aug 27 2018 dialogs
-rw-r--r-- 1 greg autologin 494 Aug 27 2018 metadata.desktop
drwxr-xr-x 2 greg greg 4096 Aug 27 2018 widgets
I have also stuck a copy of colors into /home/user/.local/share/color-schemes/
and renamed it greg.colors.
The plasma style is listed and usable, the plasma desktop, widgets, dialogs work fine and are in the settings but it won’t list my colours(colors) in the settings or use them, i cant seem to get my personal colours to work. where are they supposed to go?
Yes i would normally just copy the entire /home/user folder over but i have my reasons for not doing that in this case.
Use PlasmaConfigSaver and then back up the saved configs, also backup (or recover from a Timeshift folder) /home/jackdinn/.local/share/color-schemes/
I actually created a separate ‘Resources’ folder on HDD, I think it still has some ancient edits I made of Cinnamon themes so I tend to throw my favourites in there (stuff like xcursor-chameleon-pearl cursor themes that get outdated in repositories
Yes, plasma widget puts a folder on your Latte/panel.
This works great if you do a half hour work creating a ‘light creamy’ theme, then another half hour on a ‘Nordish’ then a ‘Gruv’ and can switch in seconds, because you can’t save it easily as a ‘Global’ option.
You speak in a cryptic language. i thought you meant there was an app or a git script or a widget that would enable one to create backups of all theming settings and edits but iv searched the standard repos and AUR’s, iv look in widgets and searched google but i don’t see PlasmaConfigSaver anywhere.
