Title: themes on e280
Post by: Kryse on June 10, 2009, 12:59:19 AM
I am having a hard time getting themes to work on my sansa, I have looked and looked and I am unable to get the help that I need. I have completley cleared the drive on my sansa (needed to reorganize anyway). And installed using the rockbox automatic installer, and I used the theme installer in that program as well. However the only thing that will show up, is the default theme that comes with it. I have also attempted unzipping the file directly to the F: (my sansa), but I get the same result, just the default. I have tried completely deleting the the different things in the theme folders, and unzipping the theme that I want, but then I just get an ugly black thing with gross font :P. Anyway If you have any ideas, that would be great. I have tried the Simply Blue, Purple Haze, and Gold Rush themes.

So, you extract the archive to the root of your player, disconnect and reboot* Rockbox and then go to Settings --> Theme Settings --> Browse Themes to select the theme and the only one listed is cabbie v2

*Actually I don't know if you're using a current build or the release version.  If you're using a current build then you don't need to reboot due to native USB support.

Thank you, No where as far as I can find, does It say how to go and turn the theme on, and unfortunately I could not figure out that step. Thanks again.

maybe we should add an additional note to http://themes.rockbox.org/ how to enable a theme after installing it. Or just mention that the manual covers that, even though its obvious that anyone should read the manual if he has problems with the control of his player within rockbox.

As perfectdrug says, this is covered in the manual: http://download.rockbox.org/manual/rockbox-sansae200/rockbox-buildch9.html#x12-1440009
