    How to Delete Theme?

    Once you custom your own theme, how can you delete it, or is that possible to delete it?
    it is under System --> Preferences --> Theme

    Re: How to Delete Theme?

    Your custom themes are stored in the directory:

    ~/.themes

    Where ~ is your home directory path (/home/username).

    Themes are stored in their own folders under that directory, so to delete one, simply delete the folder (which is the name of the theme you want to remove).

    ensure that you don't delete a theme whist you are using it

    And what if I just want to do that?

    I've been having some problems with the Qt-curve theme for compiz. It is enabled, and now nautilus/compizfusionicon/system arrangements/themes menu crash when I start them, so I cannot revert the changes (and set, for example, the Human o Clearlooks theme).

    So I've thought about deleting the Qt-curve theme, but... is there any other solution?

    I've tried to replace compiz with kwin (kwin --replace) but it's still useless.

    Any suggestion, please?

    Thank you!

    Here's how to reset all the themes to Human. Open a terminal:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme Human
    gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme Human
    gconftool-2 -t string -s /apps/metacity/general/theme Human

    Note that on 9.10 the default icon theme is Humanity instead of Human.
