Installing new luci theme

Hi there,

I just successfully installed OpenWrt on my new shiny GL-B1300, working so far quite well. I wanted to install a new theme I have added sources to opkg but I got error:

Collected errors:
 * opkg_conf_parse_file: /etc/opkg/customfeeds.conf:4: Ignoring invalid line: `src-git luci'

I thought that I know how to make it but clearly no, I ma new anyway.

Any suggestion about what could be wrong?

That syntax doesn't look correct for OpenWrt, it's definitely not in the Wiki...yea, the whole line definitely appears invalid...

Why aren't you installing the themes from the official repository (already pre-configured in the image)?[Name_pkg-dependencies*~]=theme

opkg update
opkg install luci-theme-xxxxxxxxx

To be honest I do not know, I just though that it is side project not main one. source is from github.

Thank you for pointing this out. BTW which is better in your opinion? I know this is subjective.


'source is from github' is a little ambiguous and of little help to anyone trying to assist you.

you need to describe what exactly "it" is?

I have no idea what you're talking about (I'm still lost at why you're trying to put the [mirror of the] code repository into the router's package updater) it's really difficult to answer you...cause it sounds like you're asking me if I prefer a working vs. erroneous/non-working method.

Well, since you've been shown how to install officially packaged themes in OpenWrt...and you're not being clear on what you're doing (nor why you're doing it - or if you tried installing after being shown). I hope all works out for you...or you decide to elaborate more for the thread.

Sorry for a mess, I just read:

And copy that source to opkg customfeeds.conf

I am a noob so made some mistake my bad.

Apology again.
