I have found it only mods /usr/share/hildon-desktop/

It edits only the /usr/share/hildon-desktop/transitions.ini file. I can change that but need some help with the expected behaviour since I don't use themes.

- Should it be configurable to choose another location or is it always that the transitions.ini if exists in the theme folder takes priority?
- Would it work if the app updates all transitions.ini files that it finds in both locations?

I'd say you shouldn't go to any special consideration for Theme Customiser yet, I'd wait until it's custom hildon-home has gone away and the necessary features are redeveloped for the CSSU (see #11990).

Thanks for the heads up.

Added a comment in the first post about the issue. At least people should be prepared for that.

Editing transitions.ini requires no special hacks that would require thinking of Theme Customizer

To OP:
I suggest you code it to follow this pattern:
- check if transitions.ini exists under /etc/hildon/theme/
=> if exists, edit that
==> else edit one under /usr/share/hildon-desktop/

That way your program will work with any enviroment. If user then chooses to switch theme which does not have custom transitions, he needs to re-run your program to get the results. Other way would be to edit transitions.ini in both locations if they exist. No need to look for non-standard folder like /opt/theme-customizer/ etc.

Does hildon-desktop look at /etc/hildon/theme/transitions.ini in preference to /usr/share/hildon-desktop/transitions.ini? I didn't think it did (haven't checked). Does Theme Customiser put a symlink in its place to the one inside the theme?

If so, the real solution is to follow any symlinks in place on /usr/share/hildon-desktop/transitions.ini, rather than looking in different locations.

hildon-desktop first looks for /etc/hildon/theme/transitions.ini and if there's no transitions.ini found, it moves on to /usr/share/hildon-desktop/transitions.ini.

Theme Customizer simply copies it's own transitions.ini into /etc/hildon/theme/transitions.ini when user chooses to use it's bundled transitions. It ofcourse first makes backup of the original file if there's one found.

Edit: and folder /etc/hildon/theme/ is just symlink that points to the root folder of user's currently active theme (ie /usr/share/themes/alpha etc).

nice app!!!!

- this app only edits transitions.ini located under /usr/share/hildon-desktop/. Thus, will fail if you have more transitions.ini files (e.g. using the theme-customizer).
and what do you think: is it posible to marge both apps in ONE, so there won't be any conflicts????
