I am new to ubuntu and I am trying to install theme for PhpStorm. this question point out the folder ~/.WebIde50/config/colors but I am unable to find ~/.Webide50 folder.

  • Can you be more precise and tell us what you did until know to search for this folder ? (Commands at console, Actions in GUI, ...)

  • What commands did you use ? A simple ls or trying to access it with nautilus won't show anything as files which names are preceeded by a . are hidden in Unix. Try ls -a ~ instead, or try directly cd ~/.Webide50.

  • In my system it is ~/.WebIde60 folder. Check whether that folder exists.

  • I have tried cd ~/.Webide50 and it didn't work. I also tried ls -a ~ in home dir but no folder with this worked. I have searched in ubuntu 14.04 my computer but it seems nothing is working. How can I change theme then? Jun 18, 2014 at 9:55

ls -a ~

There should be ".WebIde70" directory in there. You should next download some-theme.xml from http://www.phpstorm-themes.com/ to your Downloads folder.

cp ~/Downloads/some-theme.xml ~/.WebIde70/config/colors

When you open PhpStorm next time you should go to File->Settings->IDE Settings-> Editor->Colors & Fonts and change the theme from the drop down menu.

If you have PhpStorm8:

cp ~/Downloads/some-theme.xml ~/.WebIde80/config/colors

Have you tried using the locate command?

locate <foldername>
