I am on Mint 17.1
I'm trying to customise my own theme. I have found a theme I like which is Black-n-Blue-GTK but I want to change some of the colours and other features as well. I copied the Black-n-Blue-GTK folder and renamed it My-Theme and then edited index theme so that it showed up in Themes, no problem. I can switch to My-Theme and it obviously looks exactly like Black-n-Blue-GTK.
So, Im trying to edit metacity-theme-1.xml, but no matter how small a change I make, once I click save the theme will no longer load. If I restore metacity-theme-1.xml back to the original, it then works perfectly again.
I tried editing the metacity-theme-1.xml file of other themes and the same thing happens.
I tried following the instructions in the first reply here:
I changed nbg_color in settings.ini but absolutely nothing happens
What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
