New "Antigue" theme won't show.

Postby Jacques on Fri Jun 22, 2012 5:13 pm

Hi guys,

I unpacked this theme ... ent=128667 and dumped the folder into /usr/share/themes but it won't show up for selection in LXappearance or through "advanced settings". How come? I use the classic gnome desktop and Cinnamon.

Hope you can give me a pointer as I just switched from KDE, so I'm a bit of a Gnome newbie.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

GTK2 themes are not compatible with Cinnamon or Gnome 3. You have to use gtk3 and cinnamon themes. Also you do not need to put them in /usr/share, you can put them in ~/.themes
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
