Themes

  • Download a theme above and copy the zip file to your Themes Directory.

    • Open your local Prism Launcher Themes folder:

      • on Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/PrismLauncher/themes

      • on Linux: ~/.local/share/PrismLauncher/themes

      • on Flatpak: ~/.var/app/org.prismlauncher.PrismLauncher/data/PrismLauncher/themes

  • Unzip the newly downloaded theme in the themes folder.

  • Restart Prism Launcher, then open the global settings. In the Launcher section, click the User Interface tab, and under Widgets (make sure you're changing Widgets and not Icons), choose the newly added theme. Click the Close button, and enjoy your fresh new Prism Launcher.

      SPDX-FileCopyrightText: "Year" "Theme owner"
      
      SPDX-License-Identifier: "License SPDX Identifier"
      • (Note: theme.json and themeStyle.css are the files that contain your theme.)

      • Format your README.md just like this Template Readme and replace every text between a " like "This" with their respective use.

    • Add a screenshot of your theme and rename it to preview.png.

      • Then create a file named preview.png.license and add the text below, and replace "Year" and Screenshot owner" with their respective use.
