Linux nub [Solved]

Post by Reigetei » Thu Sep 02, 2010 22:58

Hi all I'm new to linux just installed Sabayon onto my laptop for the first time and I must say this is a major learning curve... I have been trying to install a icon package through the System Settings only to have it not install not once but atleast 10 times... I have found a copy of the Icon package on Deviantart and was wondering if there is anyway to install it without having to use the System Settings interface. Would love some help on this since it seems that the package has gone walkies and can't install via the system settings.

Oh yeah btw it's the Neon Icon theme by FRUiT that won't install.

I have tried installing it via the system setting addon installer (Yeah the same package is listed there) but it won't install

I should also say that I'm running Sabayon 5.3 KDE/Openbox version

Open a terminal and type

Code: Select all

locate icons
it should show you where what icon packs are installed. Icons that are available for the whole system (for all users) are usually in /usr/share/icons/ and icons that You install (which then are available only to You) should be in ~/.kde4/share/icons/ . You need to enable "show hidden files" in your file manager to see files and directories preceded with a dot ("/home/amoebios/.the-secret").

Extract the archives and copy the contents to the icons folder. Take a look at the other icon sets (of which you know are installed and working) to see how the folder structure is supposed to look or which files are needed. You can open the "index.theme" file with Leafpad (or any text editor).
