Description Shaun Carter 2002-08-21 00:12:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.
Comment 2 Shaun Carter 2002-08-22 22:44:07 EDT
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.
