Description:

This is the App for Opendesktop with easy "Apply" functionality and content management features.
It allows you to download, install and apply most themes like desktop themes, icon themes, wallpapers, or mouse cursors for various desktop environments using the "Install"-button instead of the "Download"-button.
Currently supported are these desktop environments: KDE Plasma, Gnome, XFCE, Mate, Cinnamon, Budgie, LXQt, Elementary and Enlightenment.
It should work on all distros like Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Suse or Redhat and many more by using an AppImage file to install.


# Installation with AppImageLauncher

If you have never installed any AppImage before, please download this newly released tool to make any AppImage run and install easily on your Linux OS:
https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1228228/

Please see if AppImageLauncher offers native packages for your distro, if not, you may just request it in the issue section.

After installing AppImageLauncher tool above, you can simply download the Opendesktop AppImage and make it executable, then Double-Click on it.

The AppImageLauncher will ask to Run or Install Opendesktop App on your computer.


# Manual Installation

To properly install the AppImage:
1. Download the package
2. Open a terminal
3. Go to the directory where the file has been downloaded
3. Execute the following commands by replacing *filename* with the actual downloaded filename:

$ chmod +x *filename*.AppImage
$ ./*filename*.AppImage --install

Proper installation is recommended to register the app in the desktop menu and make it check for updates.

Absolute junk, I cannot believe that in 2018 with one click install people are still using the command prompt gibberish, no wonder people go back to linux

$ chmod +x *filename*.AppImage
$ ./*filename*.AppImage --install

So after these 2 commands, which one is the command to execute this app? Thanks

Is there a way to turn off the confirmation when using the "Install" buttons next to the package names and descriptions?

too much duplicated functionality, which is already provided by the website itself. No genuinely new extra functions. What is the point of this ?

I have several themes installed but the "Installed" tab is empty. Nor can I keep track of installed themes that have been updated if I don't do it manually.

This seems to be an app where you simply do the exact same thing which you already can do in firefox.

So why not rather use firefox, which has better Zoom-Options?

building the app from github works fine here.

maybe true ? but if this is the case, what about all the other things ? prime Example: GUI Software, why not just use it via command line or website ?

Hi g99, you can't browse your downloaded stuff and "apply" things though from Firefox?

Hi Nolan, the file should be in .local/bin/ after installation.

The website doesn't load properly, links simply don't show and I have to reload several times for them to appear and when I click a link it simply doesn't open and shows 'internal error'.
