So, I can't install 'Breeze for GTK' theme on Debian 9. I've downloaded the files from official git page and when I move the files on ./themes folder system no read them.

And when execute ./build_theme.sh, the next message appear:

/home/pc_home/.config/kdeglobals not found, using defaults
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "render_assets.py", line 717, in <module>
    _colors = ReadKdeGlobals(args.basecolorscheme).read_globals(args.colorscheme)
  File "render_assets.py", line 23, in __init__
    self._colors = self.read_globals(base_file_name)
  File "render_assets.py", line 26, in read_globals
    with open(filename, 'r', encoding="utf-8") as _kde:
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/color-schemes/Breeze.colors'

  • Thanks for everything @Biswapriyo. By the way, where is all that info?, because on the README file isn't. – p_ks May 22 '19 at 22:14
  • @p_ks I made that with trial and error. I run the script and it says something is missing so I install it and repeat the process. – Biswapriyo May 23 '19 at 3:09
