Final notes

  • plugin uses the already built theme changer tool
  • you can still open the terminal version by calling "omv-theme"
  • if you uninstall the omv-tool the plugin will not work any more
  • you can do updates on the fly by just pressing the update button
  • code is available on github, if you want to fork and create your own be my guest
  • if you want new features make a request, preferably with specifics in mind
  • if you built a theme and want it included in this tool just submit it to me
  • if something breaks I take no responsibility, but I will try my best to fix the problem
You can’t perform that action at this time.
