To uninstall this “theme” you need to do a few simple steps:

  • Go to your Home Assistant config folder and delete the folder minimalist-templates and it’s content.
  • Open your themes folder (inside your config folder) and delete the two folders minimalist-desktop and minimalist-mobile.
  • Open your configuration.yaml and search for the line that starts with button_card_templates: . After you found it, delete the whole line.
  • You’re done, the “theme” is uninstalled. But please take note, the “view” files are still there and will produce errors. So if you want to get rid of these as well, please refer to the Home Assistant documentation to read up on how to do this!

  • In the three-dot-menu in the top right corner, choose “Edit dashboard”.
  • Go back to three-dot-menu again and click “Raw configuration editor”.
  • Look for two lines, the first starts with button_card_templates: and the second one with “view:”.
  • Select the code between these two lines and delete it.
  • Delete afterwards the line button_card_templates: as well.
  • Save and close the raw-config-editor.
  • Back in the edit view delete all cards, that were based on this “theme”.
