Details

Following the procedure in the manual, I created a filename.colours file in the /.rockbox/themes/ directory. I created two files for use with different themes and modified the config files that select those themes to choose the appropriate colour file. The colour file used most often was named '.colours' and the other was named "night.colours:.

When I select the config which should choose that ".colours" file, the colours do not change. If I select the other config file for "night.colours", the colours do change.

The interesting thing is that when I reboot with the config that uses ".colours" the colours do change to the correct settings.

The config.cfg file entry for filetype colours when the ".colours" file is selected looks like this:
filetype colours:

When "night.colours" is selected, it looks like this:
filetype colours: /.rockbox/themes/night.colours

Renaming the ".colours" file corrects the problem.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Wont Fix
Additional comments about closing:  always use a full filename.. never just the extension.

simple answer is dont ever name files in rockbox to just a extension... This problem will show p with .wps/.fmr/.cfg/etc.... I dont think this is a bug worth fixing

Maybe the fix could be a mention of that in the manual.

if you can find someone who can be bothered adding it.. sure... I dont think its a problem though because most people wont name the file as just the extension (windows wont even let you create that filename iirc)
