View Full Version : [all variants] Emerald - What the heck?

February 28th, 2009, 05:19 AM
So I apt-get installed emerald, and svn'd a supposed repository for it, as suggested by an article whose location I can no longer seem to pin down...

Anyway, said article also told me to emerald --replace, which hung when executed. After 20 minutes, I ctrl+c'd the process and borked my screen up, had to reboot.

Now, I can open the Emerald Theme Manager, import themes, and even browse them, but have no idea how to apply one of these themes.

Gimme a hand with this? Doucle- or right-clicking fails and I have a hard time trying anything other than the basic intuitives.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you apt-get install anything it comes from the repos.

Then you tell the system to use the svn repo also for the same software?

I would suggest getting rid of the svn repo and stay with the version in Synaptic (the stock repos)

Have you ever had Compiz, or the desktop effects running before trying to install Emerald?
