other zorin themes?

Postby pcfan5 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:37 pm

Hello ! I would like to ask if there are other zorin themes for zorin lite version? I would like a dark theme made with grey instead of black, which hurts my eyes, but don't know where to search of if there is an official channel for doing so. :?:

OK, because Zorin Lite does not follow xfce conventions of using a '.themes' folder I could not install that theme. This is what I have done to my xfce desktop DE as opposed to my default Zorin Lite one:

As a complete amateur, may I suggest that you try: Settings/ Zorin Appearance/ Theme
You may find what you want there.

No i'm afraid you won't. To get an extensive list of themes you will need to install xfce 4.4 which is what I did. I watched an interesting review o f Lite on You Tube yesterday and an interesting point raised in it is the fact that the menu theme never changes to match the theme in use which does stick out like a sore thumb. It's turning into the new 'indicator-3' bug of Zorin 9. I've been looking at Tara (LM19) and it looks pretty cool.

Cool! you are genius, and we share the same taste in nordic music ;)

Please rephrase this my friend "the menu theme never changes to match the theme in use which does stick out like a sore thumb" I cannot understand. Do you mean the "appearance" manager comparing the "zorin appearence"?. What happen to LM 19 (Tara) ?

Anyway I am not sure about installing xfced4.4, is this another DE?

Ps I was about to jump into another topic where someone ask to install several DE , not adviced, howver en Zorin Lite, when you are about to log in you have this screen :

It seems there is a base of xfced, obviously, but what is this :?: ?, I didn't find differences using it.

Hi pcfan5, I get either default or xfce at boot time. Basically I searched synaptic for 'xfce' and installed all packages that were not already installed which is why I have a lot more window manager choices than the standard 'Zorin' themes. I also used solid colour for background using the color wheel to select dark grey. My point about the Zorin menu is that it does not appear to match other themes chosen. In respect of Tara there was a lot I liked. I did not want to post something incorrect as I have been looking at a lot of different OS's lately. ;) :D
