How to install a theme using Git

Added by Jaime Stuardo over 7 years ago

Hello...

I'm trying to install a new theme. Accoring to installation instructions, i have to run this command:

git clone git://github.com/rajkrish/libernix-redmine-ecoyellow.git

The fact is that i don't have a git command.

By searching in Internet, I have found the page http://xdissent.com/2010/05/04/github-clone-with-redmine/ that explains how to install a plugin using script/plugin command that comes with Redmine.

When I run it, using verbose parameter, I got an error:


desytecc@desytec.com [~/www/tools/projects]# script/plugin install git://github.com/rajkrish/libernix-redmine-ecoyellow.git -v
plugin: version unknown
desytecc@desytec.com [~/www/tools/projects]#

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Jaime

I'm not aware of that script nor have I bothered to install any new themes, but I'm sure it doesn't take a git repository URL.

If you don't have git installed, what you should do is:

As the name implies it installs plugins, not themes, and uses git internally if provided a git-type URL. The suggestion of the parent to download the theme as a package seems sound.

thanks, I copied the theme source manually and it worked.
