User Themes

I'm really liking Gnome 3 and have installed gnome-tweak-tool but still can't change shell themes. Any tip or tricks on how to change the Shell Themes?

Yeah, not everything works out of the box yet. To get it working, you need to first install the gnome-shell-extensions package, as that contains the user-theme extension.

Also if you are on Update Pack 4, the version of gnome-tweak-tool has a few known bugs and it won't detect the user-theme extension due to it having a different UUID to what it is looking for. What you would need to do is to temporarily enable the Debian Testing repository and upgrade only the gnome-tweak-tool package, then disable Testing again afterwards. Version 3.2.2-3 should work properly.
