I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Install a very comprehensive icon set and apply it. Something like adwaita-icon-theme usually has all icons. Then open the same window and see what the icons are. Then look for the icon in the iconset to get the name. Copy them into your current install.

I have this set adwaita-icon-theme-3.24.0-noarch-1.txz. I don't understand how to do it.

Jack, if you are under LXDE desktop, you should have lxappearance package installed.

Then, you should have some icon themes under /usr/share/icons (available to all users) or under /home/guest/.icons (only available to guest user in this case). There's also /home/guest/.local/share/icons which seems to be a new "trending" location for all this stuff. In short, those are the places where you put your custom icons, themes, fonts. etc.

If you get some icon theme from, i.e. --> https://dl.opendesktop.org/api/files/do ... %201.1.zip
all you have to do is to uncompress the file you just downloaded to one of those locations above, depending on your profile.

Then in lxappearance, the installed theme would be available and selectable.

One trick to achieve further integration is to make some symlinks to the root account:

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /home/guest/.fonts /root/.fonts
sudo ln -s /home/guest/.icons /root/.icons
sudo ln -s /home/guest/.themes /root/.themes
This will ensure your apps look the same whether you use your guest or your root account whenever you run them.

Finally, this procedure is equal to other desktops, the only change is the service program launched to customize your desktop.

Cheers!
