Hi all again just me ones more ;)

A silly question im trying to figure out how to make a theme pack for XFCE4
how would i do that the easiest way?

What i am trying to do , i have a few themes i want to make a package of
and call it for example xfce4-themes.tcz.

now how would i go about to make this work?

Any tips and tricks from tc geniuses would be greatfully accepted ::D

Sincerally

Hi ztealmax
Basically, what you want to do is set up a temporary directory structure containing the files that mimics how
it would look in a running system. For example, if the package requires a file located in:

--- Code: ---/usr/local/share/icons/Rodent/48x48/apps/xfce-printer.png
--- End code ---
you could copy it to:

--- Code: ---/tmp/xfce4-themes/usr/local/share/icons/Rodent/48x48/apps/xfce-printer.png
--- End code ---
Add any remaining paths/files under  /tmp/xfce4-themes/  that you want installed with the package.
Now create a file called:

--- Code: ---/tmp/xfce4-themes/usr/local/tce.installed/xfce4-themes
--- End code ---
If you need to perform any commands when the package is installed, add them to xfce4-themes, otherwise,
leave that file empty. Finally:

--- Code: ---sudo chown -R root:staff /tmp/xfce4-themes/usr/local/tce.installed
sudo chmod -R 775 /tmp/xfce4-themes/usr/local/tce.installed
cd /tmp
mksquashfs  xfce4-themes xfce4-themes.tcz
--- End code ---
Copy the  xfce4-themes.tcz  file to your  tce  directory and add  xfce4-themes.tcz  to your onboot.lst.
