    Theme help


    Well, recently, I had this theme problem, what I did is downloaded a theme package, that was a .zip and then moved to (the name of the file is "Nord")

    Code:
    /root/.theme/
    I had to mode this to

    Code:
    /usr/share/themes/
    I tried

    Code:
    root@bt~#: cp /root/.themes/Nord /usr/share/themes/

    But that gave me a "omitting" err0r, what is wrong? can anyone technically point out where I am going wrong?

    Also, resolve my problem with this theme, somehow, with the GUI when i copy this stuff (Nord) from the /root dir to the /usr/share/theme directory where the file should be, it doesnt (the theme) come on the theme (appearances and settings) menu? how to install a particular theme then>? I tried dragging the whole zip file to the appearances and settings, still?

    Thanks to read the thread, I hope I will learn something fro here, btw, I am a new user, this is my first day here

    tl;dr


    uname -a

    is

    Code:
    Linux bt 3.2.6 #1 SMP Fri Feb 17 10:40:05 EST 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

    Moved thread here.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Which distro are you using and which desktop environment?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    okay I did it, what was to be done is using the recursive way that is

    Code:
    cp -r /root/the_file_/ /usr/share/themes
    worked like a charm !
