Installing Themes on Gnome3


GNOME - Sep 17 2011
answered
Question:Very new to Gnome3, I have been running Ubuntu 11.04, and just upgraded. Just downloaded a theme "marples_black" and not quite full sure how to install it. Somebody mentioned right clicking on the desktop, but that doesn't do anything at all, not even a sub-menu pops up at right click.

Let me make this clear.. this is a NEW install of Gnome3, the only thing i have done was install "gnome-tweak-tool". mnd you that doesnt show up when i search my apps for it, so i dont exactly know where it is.. but when i follow the steps to install it, i get the message saying its in there.

Are there any packages i need to get first? if so what are the command lines? assuming I have done nothing yet to the fresh install, what steps exactly do i take to install a theme?

Much thanks

Answer:I'm not using gnome3, but i've read that you should put theme in /usr/share/themes or ~/.themes .

Later you can change it in gnome-tweak-tool .

Hope that it will help you :)

Run the command "gksu nautilus", from there go to your /usr/share/themes directory, and move your extracted theme files into there. Note that your file permissions for that file may also have to be changed in order for you to be able to use the theme. I had to run a "chmod 777 ..." for I to be able to use the theme. However, if you're able to use that file just fine, then simply ignore my file permission advice.:D

Do be careful when using chmod 777, if you're unsure what you're doing, I suggest that you don't use it! A system can really get screwed up if that command isn't used properly. When I said I used that command, I meant to say that I used it on the folder that contains my theme, not the "theme" folder just to clarify.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
