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/
