[SOLVED] Removing the WhiteSur theme

Hi all! Recently I was interested in the WhiteSur-Light topic from Xfce-Look.org
I downloaded the archive of this theme, went to settings-appearance and added this theme.
Having used this theme, I decided to download another one, but from the official repository, and I managed to do it. But now I don't understand how to delete the WhiteSur theme.
I wrote the command sudo apt remove WhiteSur-light, but it gave me an error, then I decided to look at the correct name of this theme. I wrote the command apt search theme | less but didn’t find this topic there.
This theme is also not in the Usr/share/themes/ location.
Perhaps the theme is in the .themes folder
I checked using the command sudo find / -iname "*WhiteSur-Light*"
gives the location .themes/WhiteSur-Light
I wrote the command sudo rm -rf WhiteSur-light, but still nothing. The theme does not disappear in the settings - appearance

Re: [SOLVED] Removing the WhiteSur theme

Try the command like so

rm -rf ~/.themes/WhiteSur-Light

EDIT: dont use sudo, no need.

Nope, the topic never went away sad
I just pasted the command and no messages appeared in the terminal after that, and the topic was never deleted

When I started the terminal I entered the su command and entered the root password.
After that I always tried to remove whitesur, but nothing worked..
After writing your command, nothing changed either, but after re-entering the terminal and entering your command again, the WhiteSur theme was deleted
It turns out that the problem was that I wrote the "su" command, huh ..

No need to use SU (super user) when working in your home directory.

Here is a good article on the use of the super user account, which should be used wisely.

ps: can you now please also help me remove the WhiteSur icons ^^"?

Same process, this time maybe the icons are in /home/<your user>/.icons so let us know the output of below command first before we remove any files.

ls -al ~/.icons
