Download the theme from the theme store
This will contain 2 files which you need to add into your addon directory. If you installed with Bitnami then it’s in
You need to copy the 2 files into that directory. The configuration file by default does not include this directly so you need to add it.
The first line should say “addons_path.” At the end of that line add a comma (,) and then the full path to your addon directory.
addons_path = /home/ubuntu/odoo-11.0.20171118-2/apps/odoo/lib/odoo-11.0.post20171118-py3.6.egg/odoo/addons, /home/ubuntu/odoo-11.0.20171118-2/apps/odoo/data/addons/
In Odoo go to the settings page and look for “Activate the developer mode” and click that
Then go to “Browse Apps” and remove the “Apps” from the search bar and search for theme. You may need to click “Update Apps List” if it doesn’t show up automatically.
Update: 06-12-2019 Icons Missing from Menu FileNotFoundException web_responsive
When I installed web_responsive I had some of the permissions wrong for the addon directory. Once I fixed the permissions I was unable to get the icons for the menu to show up. The files were not created in the filestore and no quantity of restarts or reinstalls would resolve the issue. Ultimate I stopped the service, added the update all flag to the service, and restarted the service. Update all took a few minutes to complete. Then I removed the update all command and restarted the service
sudo systemctl stop odoo11.service /home/odoo11/odoo11-venv/bin/python3 /home/odoo11/odoo/odoo-bin -c /etc/odoo11.conf --update all sudo systemctl daemon-reload sudo systemctl start odoo11.service
Thank you for the app.
Just installed it. Much easier to navigate than standard CE interface.
One issue came up:
Selecting CRM in the left hand side bar does not seem to work correctly.
When selected, “Pipeline” opens, but any previously selected module remains active in the top menu.
Selecting CRM from icon panel brings up full CRM menu as expected.
Thanks this worked!
it´s a so fucking lazy how to… but ok. it worked
Sounds like the perfect how-to then. All the information you need, nothing you didn’t and it worked on the first try. Flawless victory
Exactly what I was looking for, thanks for posting.
I have a test site. in which I want to change backend theme. Don’t have any serer details.
How can I do it?
I did the same steps on odoo 12 but it doesn’t work
I haven’t migrated to Odoo 12 yet but the process will certainly be different. Here’s a link to the version for 12. It’s still very new so I would expect some minor issues. https://apps.odoo.com/apps/themes/12.0/openworx_backend_theme/
