REPORTED:

Few users tested this packages and they have some issues after using it. Don't use this themes packages with BackBox 4. You can always install another themes from other sources.

Thanks!

Hi, this is my little contribution to the distro  ;)
I made a collection of themes for you to enhance your Backbox.
Instructions:
I suggest you download and install " gdebi" just type in terminal: sudo apt-get install gdebi
Download and unpack the zip file from here :  http://www.mediafire.com/?uuymoa5qi4c8uzx
* If you encounter an error during unpacking, just download " rar" from software center or synaptic.
Install the packages using gdebi.

Enjoy your Backbox new look.

Example of theme :

So does backbox have any themes already made like backtrack had? Ones that you could download or widgets . I love the widgets on backtrack.

I found how to edit splash screen, maybe there is a faster way but I am a bit analogic ;p
Find an image you like and save it as .png (maybe works with .jpg too but not tryed yet).
Open a terminal and type:
"sudo cp /<your image path>/<image name>.png /lib/plymouth/themes/backbox-logo/"
 Then go to /lib/plymouth/themes/backbox-logo/ and type:
"sudo geany backbox-logo.script"
Find the line with ("backbox-logo.png") and replace it with your shiny new picture.
Save and look at it :)

Or you can just rename backbox-logo.png as backbox-old-logo.png then rename your image to backbox-logo.png and skip edit the script.
Just one thig: i got funny time cropping My new image to the right dimension, have fun !

It is not important do it right or do it wrong, it's important have fun doing it!
There's not troubles, there's just solutions!

Hi,

1. I don't see why you don't use dpkg -i nameofpackage.deb to install.
2. You get this error because gdebi need repo in your sources.list i checked and bbox have this package.

Wher's your problem ?

1. Update your system

sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get install gdebi

If this don't help, you can install from source etc....

But i'm sure that this is not BBox issue !

Ok, here is what you do :
Open terminal and type : sudo synaptic
The package manager will appear , type gdebi in the searchbar.
Download and install gdebi.
Now download the theme pack from the link i gave you and unpack the compressed file in your Home directory.
Open the folder and right clic on every Deb package in there and install it using Gdebi option.

Hope this will help   ;)

Hi man,

This is very old topic, i'm not sure that this work with last BBox version. You can install thems from xfce thems site if you wish to play with.
