    I am trying to figure out why I can't get this to take effect in UnityDark. Here is what's going on: I sent the zip file to the .temes folder in created in the home folder. Then when I go to the ubuntu tweak area, and drill down to the area I saved it, it only shows all the contents that need to be installed. Please help as I really would like this theme. -Linux Inside!

    Another one well worth studying I think, for the apparent use of pixmaps. It does feel too busy and a bit oppressive to me but it's pretty clever stuff. Strange to have no 1.6 update though - it doesn't take much work.

    Navigate to 'home' folder >> Hit ctrl+h (show hidden files) >> Travel down to .themes >> Extract the zip file here. Then go to cinnamon settings (start >> preferences >> cinnamon settings) and change the theme there. You might have to restart the shell so hit alt + f2 then type r >> enter. i think that's a much better way haha just go to Nautilus --- file manager and go to USR SHARE then RIGHT CLICK Themes and hit open as admin -- put in password and MOVE /cut all you themes to Home / .themes hit CTRL H to see .(DOT) themes folder and put all your themes there then restart Cinnamon yeah this is slightly better

    TO INSTALL THEMES THERE IS AN well i was gonna say easy but SOMEWHAT easy way that requires MUCH less terminal work ok open Terminal type > sudo nau then press TAB and hit enter this is ROOT file manager so you can move folders o wait WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD THEME right click it EXTRACT IT then do the terminal and open nautilus as root just type what i said type ok when file manager opens click the small arrow under where it says bookmarks its a VERY small arrow keep clicking it till you get a silver disk now go to home / (user name here ) / Downloads or where you downloaded your theme now Right Click the extracted theme and either cut or copy it ok go click back till you get to ETC and all those weird folders again and go to USR / SHARE / THEMES and PASTE IT in there now go to Cinnamon Settings and select the theme hope this helps and if there is a better way please let me know also WHY does it have to be like this ----- this is why people don't like linux why do i have to do ALL THAT just to install a theme!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! come on i am not a programmer is there a script i can run ONE SCRIPT not 50 terminal commands to unzip a theme and have it pasted into USR SHARE THEMES becasue this is just........

    *edit, sorry, no widgets, got confused with another theme, I mean the taskbar and the background?

  9. Fluxy says:

    I seem to be having a problem with this I copied the theme directly to my .theme folder in home and it replaced my original cinnamon theme, there are now two of this theme in the theme selection area. P.s. what is the setup in the pic? The taskbar along the bottom and the widgets on the right?

    Sorry, didn't realize you didn't get \n here... During the terminal phase, new lines start at: the 1st command starts with cd and all the rest of the commands start with sudo.

    @anekretia . The steps are as follow: 1. download this file and place it into your /home directory. 2. rename the file into mytheme.zip 3. open terminal. 4. type in the following lines: cd /home/[your username] sudo mkdir ./.themes/ sudo mv mytheme.zip ./.themes/mytheme.zip sudo cd .themes sudo unzip mytheme.zip sudo rm mytheme.zip exit 5. In your menu, go to preferences->cinnamon settings 6. In this window go into the Themes tab 7. Go all the way down and you will see this theme. Select it. Done. Note* because I didn't use ~ you can do this for any user on your machine. Notes to the pros* Yes I do tend to spam sudo a bit, I only do this with system commands though :P

    I like this theme. I have been using it with a set of dark grey/black icons called Fekete and they go together quite well. However, I found the Media Player icons on the panel applet to be rather large. I don't know if this was deliberate but you can improve the look of these by taking the Media Player CSS entries in the Cinnamon theme cinnamon.css file and adding the to this themes cinnamon.css.
