Help with MOC themes

PostPosted by Temetka » Thu Jun 29, 2017 7:58 am


I'm trying to change the default MOC theme using one of the themes from /usr/share/moc/themes (pick a file any file, doesn't atter).

I copy said file to /home/temetka/.moc/config and I get this error
Code: Select all
FATAL_ERROR: Error in config file on line 3

So let's look at my config file (remember it's one of the themes that came with MOC): black theme
Code: Select all
# Black theme by Arn <>

background            = white      black
frame               = white      black
window_title         = white      black
directory            = white      black
selected_directory      = white      black   reverse
playlist            = white      black
selected_playlist      = white      black   reverse
file               = white      black
selected_file         = white      black   reverse
marked_file            = white      black   bold
marked_selected_file   = white      black   bold,reverse
info               = white      black   underline
status               = white      black
title               = white      black   bold
state               = white      black
current_time         = white      black   bold
time_left            = white      black   bold
total_time            = white      black   bold
time_total_frames      = white      black
sound_parameters      = white      black   bold
legend               = white      black
disabled            = white      black
enabled               = white      black   bold
empty_mixer_bar         = white      black
filled_mixer_bar      = white      black   reverse
empty_time_bar         = white      black
filled_time_bar         = white      black   reverse
entry               = white      black
entry_title            = white      black
error               = white      black   bold,underline
message               = white      black
plist_time            = white      black

From the error above the line # 3 is where the actual color configuration starts. As I've stated no matter which theme I try to use, I get that error with the line # starting after the commented out lines (i.e. lines starting with #).

I google around and it seems I am the only person on the internet with this issue. What gives?
