install kdetheme for all users
 
Hello

How can I install a kdetheme globally (i.e. for all users)?
I've tried to put it in /usr/local/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/ but it does
nothing. Suppose I need to update a path somewhere, but ...

Any idea?

apps/something looks like a KDE data path

try /usr/local/share/apps/desktoptheme

(/usr/local/share/apps is part of the output I get from kde4-config --path
data)

Cheers,
Kevin

Hi,
I'm trying to install a plasma theme.
Your path is for kdm themes only.

Thanks for your answer, anyway.

/usr/local is not on the path from kde4-config
but I'm not sure that kde4-config is the right tool to find path of desktop
theme because kde4-config --types output doens't contain themes or styles.

Where am I suppose to add something in the path for desktop themes?

kde4-config types are the different types of location KDE apps can use for
different forms of data/files.

But those are base paths, the actual files are usually in subdirectories
decided upon by the apps.

and /usr/share/kde4/desktopthemes looks like kde-data-path/desktopthemes.

If /usr/local is not part of your search list, you could set $KDEDIRS so that
it contains /usr/local:/usr

Cheers,
Kevin

Oh yes KDEDIRS! sometimes I forget the easiest things! :-)
thanks.
