When trying to install a new icon theme, nothing happens. Using lxappearance in LXDE with a new clean install of Ubuntu 16.04.6.
- click install new theme
- choose archive (tar.gz or tar.bz2 are the only recognized types)
- choose tar.gz file & click open
- dialogue box pops up so quick I can't see what it says or if it says anything at all
- nothing changes, no new theme appears in list
Also I have chosen the "onyx" window border theme (I assumed this was the system theme as well); however, when I change the task bar to "system theme". it just goes white.
What the heck is going on? I just want my new install to look like my previous one but everything is different this time around.
