OK, I managed to install a foreign wallpaper, but I can't change the theme.

The menu opens Obconf to select the openbox theme, about 14 themes are shown with the current theme highlighted, but how is a theme selected?
I've tried clicking, right clicking and doeb;e clicking. Nothing happens.
"Install a new theme" opens a file menu app (blank) from which one is apparently supposed to pick an .obt file. "locate" from a terminal window (thankfully working) shows no .obt files anywhere on the system.

"man obconf" returns nothing. "obconf --help"
Code:
tony@MSI ~ $ obconf --help
Syntax: obconf [options] [ARCHIVE.obt]

Options:
  --help                Display this help and exit
  --version             Display the version and exit
  --install ARCHIVE.obt Install the given theme archive and select it
  --archive THEME       Create a theme archive from the given theme directory
  --config-file FILE    Specify the path to the config file to use
  --tab NUMBER          Switch to tab number NUMBER on startup


So, where does one get obconf archives?

EDIT: The old lumina website had detailed instructions on how to do this by editing files. Nothing on the new lumina website.

If I remember right whatever you have selected when you close, is "installed"

Ah! Thank you, Anon-E-moose. It does indeed remeber what you left, BUT, I should have checked /var/log/messages:
Code:
ec6b24880 error 4 in libQt5Core.so.5.12.3[7feb99b44000+282000]

A bug! Which version of Lumina do you recommend?

I don't use lumina, just straight openbox, but I do use obconf with it. :)

But in looking for error 4 with qtcore, it seems that lots of things can trigger that, not necessarily because of qt itself, or lumina, could be X.
