Description of problem:
When you try to drag and drop a folder onto the theme dialogue to install, the
folder being dragged is deleted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.grab a theme tar and extract it
2.open the theme program from start here>preferences
3.drag the extracted folder into the installed theme window
Actual Results: the theme manager displays the file install dialogue, the
folder is removed from the system. Locate and find -name will not find the name
of the folder anywhere (just checking to see if it was moved and not deleted).
Expected Results: The theme should be moved/installed to the proper directory
and the theme name should show up in the installed themes window.
tried installing the Amadeus and Aqua themes obtained from
I can't duplicate the theme disappearing at all. Can you take a look in
~/.themes to see if it actually installed it? Note that the Amadeus theme isn't
a valid theme currently, as the theme format has changed.
After logging out/logging in, I feel like an idiot. The themes are now listed
and a locate and find -name both list the folders in ~/.themes. Why did it take
logging out/in to get these to show up? I have no idea. Sorry. I would still
like to know why it looked that way, but being that you can't dupe it, I know
how it is.
OK, closing for now. We'll keep an eye out for further reports.
