Many thanks to my friend Nathan, who rewrote the entire script for me. He has a lot more patience than I do.

A sudo-script that looks like Vista and violates GPL?

How does it violate GPL? There's a Credits file contained in the tarball, with links to the original themes.

In the other themes installed in the folder .themes all have a file with the name of the theme intalled by example, the theme AERO CLONE have a file named

Aero clone next the folder with the theme, yours don have this file, for this reason don appear in the list of themes installed, and cannot be instaled manually (not in tar.gz normalized pack format)

What about us that doesn't use sudo?

Then you'll have to manually move the files yourself if you get a permissions error. Check the script for locations.

GTK theme should work properly now. I added sudo to other commands where 'permission denied' was showing up.

What is it with all these "Ubuntu only" things here? :(

There are users on this site that use other distros, you know. Please be considerate of all users.

That's the distro I run and compiled this theme on, so I know that it works for sure on it, aside from the script errors.


I didnt install this theme myself with the script, I did mine manually. I'll check over the script again and get someone to test it again to check for errors.

I run the script with sudo and have no errors, but the GTK theme don install i try manually install and make tar.gz of the package but say the format is not valid.
My experiencia, is the script don change nothing, i change manually emerald and the splash screen, gtk don work and cannot change manually.

You're breaking the law by removing credits from these other GPL themes, and you aren't even placing any of yourself.

You should be banned.

Well EXCUSE me license person.

I was working on that right when I saw your comment pop up. Tarball is uploading right now will the updates.

Drop the attitude; you deliberately removed credit from my theme before uploading, so don't tell me "you were just working on it" - it should never have been removed in the first place.

Before you go after my throat, toby, check the credits from the tarball that's up now. The icons were not pulled from your content, they were pulled from the Transformation pack.

Any discrepancies will have to be taken up with that user. If that arises, I will cite you in my credits instead of them.
