Thank you

Can you provide more details about where you got the theme from, and how you installed it?

i installed Oh my fish and then tried to install one of the theme from the available theme and it was not successful. Then I tried to install Dracula from Dark theme for Fish and 271+ apps — Dracula, it does show that its installed but the terminal looks same.

I was able to get it to work from that link you posted.

I downloaded that .zip, extracted it, and moved to ~/.config/fish/config.d/ like it says.

mv ~/.config/fish/config.d/

Reload fish:

exec fish

Here is my terminal side-by-side with their example screenshot:


Yes I did the same. Still it is not working . I tried to share image here but it seems that it is not allowed for new users.

New users cannot share images in forum

That's to prevent spam bots from taking over.

Please paste the contents of your fish/config.d directory.

ls -la ~/.config/fish/config.d/
drwxr-xr-x    - lepton 17 Jul 19:27  .
drwxr-xr-x    - lepton 17 Jul 19:27  ..

do i need to change permission of

No, the permission looks fine. You do not have :thinking:

I'm not sure what is or does; I'm wondering if it might be interfering with your new file. Can you try to move it out of the directory for now to test? You could just stick it in your home folder, or any other folder you like.

mv ~/

Reload fish:

exec fish

omf is oh my fish. It helps you install plugins or themes in fish. you have similar installer for zsh called oh my zsh. Nevertheless, no matter which method I use, the terminal looks same.

Is it necessary to restart the terminal/konsole to see the change?

Problem solved. It was color-scheme problem from Kde. Sorry for the troubles and thank you for your time and effort. Apologies for the not following the guidelines. I will try to do comply for next post on wards.

Hmm, this does not sound right. The template you have linked is a theme for Fish, not for KDE or Konsole.

What did you end up changing that gave you the desired result?
