2017-06-19 10:50:25 -0600 commented answer Permission denied

Created the directory and extracted the theme to the new .themes. Restarted my machine then opened Tweak Tool. The new theme doesn't show up in the drop down menu.

I ran the command and nothing happened. Screenshot

In the Q/A the solution was this "/home/user/.local/share/themes/", I do not have that themes folder inside share.

I found the hidden files, and the .themes directory is not there. Can I create by running that exact command above mkdir ~/.themes?

2017-06-19 09:33:30 -0600 commented answer Permission denied

It is only myself on the system. I cannot find the .themes directory. I went to /home/alecryncavage and couldnt find it.

If you can't tell, I am new to Fedora.

I could already use the sudo command. I was trying to right click the file and extract it to /usr/share/themes when my permission got denied.

I am trying to extract a theme to the /usr/share/themes folder when every time I try to run the process it prompts me with permission denied". It originally prompted me with a similar message but once I added my user account under the root group using visudo, that switched to "Permission denied".

I am running Fedora 25 workstation, please help.

Thank you!

I got my USB boot drive to work but I dont want to leave you unanswered.

  • I was using the latest mediawriter and on both machines it would not run after install. Even after a reboot and reinstall.

The laptop is just a Windows 10 HP laptop. Nothing crazy, I just had it sitting around. As for how I created the drive, I used the 64-bit live image direct download, then used unetbootin to create the bootable flash.

Thank you.

I am trying to install Fedora 25 on a windows 10 laptop however, I cannot get it to work. I first tried to use the Fedora workstation writer but that did not run upon download (tried on two different machines). I then tried to take the live image and convert it into a bootable flash drive. After it boot, a message would appear reading "No caching mode page found, assuming drive cache: write through" then nothing would happen. From what I read, it may be the USB drive.

Can someone help? Thank you!
