Add a new theme?

Postby DapperMe17 on Wed Oct 01, 2008 10:45 pm

Hello,

I recently downloaded three seperate gtk2 themes from the Mint-art webpage.

I unpacked them all, then moved them to the /usr/share/themes folder.

However, none of the three appear anywhere in the "User Interface" list, or in the "Window Manger" list.

What's up?

If you have the link or a name I can find out what's wrong.

Ok sorry for the wait, must have gotten sidetracked.
All three GTK themes worked here.
I right click extract here and copied and pasted the folder in /usr/share/themes/
They all showed up in User Interface like the were suppose to.

/usr/share/themes/Carbonfibre/gtk-2.0

Had to extract another file inside and the theme forgot to use green for the window color.
Had a metacity theme in it so that won't work.
/usr/share/themes/Deepgreen/gtk-2.0
