Devuan purpy Theme for TDE

This is a short HowTo for installing a Devuan purpy style theme for TDE. Who does not know TDE: https://trinitydesktop.org - no dependencies on GTK/systemd/cruft-you-do-not-like.

These are the steps needed to get a TDE desktop, that mostly looks like the default GUI:

Project on git.devuan.org: https://git.devuan.org/samhain/TDE-theme


Create the needed icons:

As devuan GTK theme is based on mate-icon-theme and
clearlooks-phenix-purpy-theme and the GTK iconsets do not match the TDE icon
sets, we need to create a matching TDE icon set yourself or download it here: https://git.devuan.org/samhain/TDE-them … uan.tar.xz

# aptitude install clearlooks-phenix-purpy-theme mate-icon-theme desktop-base
# aptitude install imagemagick librsvg2-bin

Now let's create the mixed iconset:

# cd /opt/trinity/share/icons/
# cp -a crystalsvg devuan
# cd devuan
# cp -a /usr/share/icons/mate/[0-9]* .
# cp /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/emblems/emblem-devuan.png 128x128/apps/kmenu.png
# rm scalable/apps/kmenu.svgz
# cp /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/emblems/emblem-devuan.svg scalable/apps/kmenu.svg
# gzip scalable/apps/kmenu.svg 
# mv scalable/apps/kmenu.svg.gz scalable/apps/kmenu.svgz
# for i in [0-9]*; do convert /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/emblems/emblem-devuan.svg -resize ${i%/} $i/apps/kmenu.png; done
# for i in $(find . -iname folder-documents.png); do cp $i $(dirname $i)/folder_wordprocessing.png; done
# echo << XXX
[Icon Theme]
Name=Crystal MATE
Comment=Mixed Icon Theme for DEVUAN
XXX
# cat ../crystalsvg/index.theme | grep --invert-match -e ^Comment -e ^Name -e '\[Icon Theme\]' >> index.theme

You can set the matching GTK theme with "lxappearance", if you want GTK stuff themed simillar.

And you'll need my TDE theme package from here: https://git.devuan.org/samhain/TDE-them … Devuan.kth

Install the theme in TDE:
kcontrol, "Appearence & Themes", "Theme Manager", "Install new Theme" --> select the file "Devuan.kth"

Enjoy :-)

Re: Devuan purpy Theme for TDE

Devuan+TDE user here. My system(s) originate from (Devuan-) debootstrap.

I have clearlooks-phenix-purpy-theme and mate-icon-theme installed but /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/emblems is empty. Am I missing a package?

Re: Devuan purpy Theme for TDE

It's in "desktop-base". I've added it to the list op packages needed.

Re: Devuan purpy Theme for TDE

I was missing "desktop-base". Also there was a small error in your code box (take out the "fi; "):

# for i in [0-9]*; do convert /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/emblems/emblem-devuan.svg -resize ${i%/} $i/apps/kmenu.png; fi; done

All working now, thanks samhain.
