Theme content

Theme is basically a folder. Folder's name is the theme name.

Razor-Qt looks for theme folders in:

  • ~/.local/share/razor/themes/
  • /usr/local/share/razor/themes/
  • /usr/share/razor/themes/

To tell the truth only if a folder contains file razor-panel.qss it is considered a theme. With just this one empty file it will look ugly, believe me.

Complete theme would include these files:

  • preview.png
  • razor-appswitcher.qss
  • razor-desktop.qss
  • razor-lightdm-greeter.qss
  • razor-notificationd.qss
  • razor-panel.qss
  • razor-power.qss
  • razor-runner.qss
  • wallpaper.cfg and most probably some images.

Themes shipped with the source code contain:

  • one or more image for desktop background,
  • icons for some applications in subfolders, usually: razor-lightdm-greeter, razor-notificationd, razor-power and razor-runner.

File formats


QSS - are Qt Style Sheets files. In short words - it's Qt-flavoured CSS.

Official docs are pretty good:

#### CFG

wallpaper.cfg - is actually an INI file.

It has 'wallpapers' array on the global level. Each item has key 'file' pointing to a raster image file. Each entry corresponds to each screen. Probably SVG support will be added in the future.
