I just downloaded the the ClearConsoleTheme.zip. Looks awesome BTW, great job Florian. But Im having trouble installing it. I tried to place the extracted folder in the /home directory, per the included instructions, using cyberduck but I keep getting a permissions error. Am I putting it in the wrong place? I installed the “MyMenu” font in the /home folder earlier because I changed the emulation station Menu and that worked fine. Thanks for any help and all your guys hard work it really is great.sewersurferParticipant04/30/2014 at 22:50Post count: 17
So how do I install a new theme? I wasn´t able to find a detailed “how to”… Any help on that would be greatly appreciated.
And does this have the potential to ruin my existing boxart and gamelists? I put a little work into setting up all boxart and game titles for my NES, SNES, Genesis games and don´t want to loose that.

Firstly it’s a good idea to backup your RetroPie image if you have spent a lot of time configuring it. Use win32diskimager: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/files/latest/download (be careful with this, search for a tutorial if not sure)
Changing themes will not affect your boxart or gamelists as they are located in the relevant ROM folders.
All ES themes are located in /home/pi/.emulationstation
If you navigate to that folder you will see corresponding folders for all of the emulators. You need to delete the old emulator theme folder and replace with the new one and reboot.

I tried that, but it didn´t pick up the correct artwork. The Emulators are mainly plain white or black or half blue, half white (Atari 2600) now, but not the artwork they should be according to the ClearConsoleThemeV1.1.
I replaced all folders in the ./emulationstation folder with the new ones from clear console theme.
Anything else I need to do??trimmtrabbParticipant05/03/2014 at 19:51Post count: 480
How are you transferring the files over?sewersurferParticipant05/04/2014 at 08:27Post count: 17
Just as you suggusted I used filezilla (sftp).
