System: Kernel: 4.8.0-53-generic x86_64 (64 bit)
Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 Distro: Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya
Machine: HP EliteBook Folio 9470m
Graphics: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
Resolution: 1600x900@60.06hz
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Ivybridge Mobile
GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.0.7
I've followed instructions to the best of my ability and I can't see the new theme in the Appearance menu.

I downloaded Arc-Simple-Dark-10.zip from https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1194403/

Extracted and placed it in the themes directory.

So now I have this directory tree:
/home/folium/.local/share/themes/Arc-Simple-Dark-10/xfwm4/

Am I doing something wrong or is my system broke?


I'm really pleased with Linux Mint but it's stunning how difficult switching themes can be.

This works for me:
/usr/share/themes/Arc-Simple-Dark-10/

Use /usr/share/themes/Arc-Simple-Dark-10/ or /home/folium/.local/share/themes/Arc-Simple-Dark-10/

Same for me, I tried to follow the manual to the letter but no change in my theme. does anyone have an idea about this little problem or is it my system that is starting to derail? what could I do?

Hi dkrbnd.

For me, in the case of Arc-Simple-Dark-10, that is a Window Manager theme that can be set in Menu > Settings > Window Manager > Style tab

The stuff you can change in Menu > Settings > Appearance are GTK themes under the Style tab, and icon themes under the Icons tab.

Hope that helps.
