A new Theme Chooser screen was introduced in mythfrontend in the v0.24 release of MythTV. This screen allows the user to choose a new theme from an available list of locally installed themes and themes which can be downloaded from the official themes.mythtv.org repository.
How to get your theme to the official download site
In order to be distributed via the official themes download site, a theme must meet certain criteria:
- Feature Complete. At a minimum, the following list of screens must be themed so that they do not fall back to the default theme windows. Also, these screens should not just be cut-and-pasted from the defaults in order to pass the completeness test. We are investigating writing a script to show a themes "completeness" so that this information can be provided to users in the Theme Chooser screen.
