    What is the command which opens the gnome appearance window ?

    I opened terminal & typed gnome- then tab, but can't seem to find it.

    I need to install some themes.

    TIA

    Then click on the icon and browse to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps and select yast.png and you should be good to go.
    Thank you very much - also worked for me

    Okay.......Regarding the appearance window, I went to the Gnome IRC.

    They told me to install gnome-tweak-tool.

    Code:
    sudo zypper install  gnome-tweak-tool
    Installation is done. Presently working on it.

    Yesterday evening I had the same problem and fixed almost the way you have suggested except that in my case I Did it this way:
    zypper mr -p 98 GNOME:STABLE:3.0
    zypper dup
    Notice the difference between colons and underscore (which was my case).
    Don't askme why but that's what "zyyper" shows me.

    Hi
    There are only a few themes for Gnome 3, or your talking about icons, fonts etc... then just press alt+F2 and then enter gnome-tweak-tool.

    If you follow some of the blogs about manually adding then it can break things so suggest you backup before making changes.

    Hi
    Same deal using alacarte, except add;
    Code:
    Command: /usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 sw_single&
    The icon is yast-sw_single.png. If you open a terminal and run yast -l it lists all the YaST modules.

    Okay, but do they mean by this then ?

    The window manager in GNOME 3 is almost entirely feature compatible with the GNOME 2 window manager. While we plan to ship a much improved theme with GNOME 3 there is no active effort to prevent using existing GNOME 2 themes.

    Hi
    Use the Gnome tweak tool to add the icons etc. As in Gnome 3.0 themes, like these ones #GNOME-Shell on deviantART

    There is a tool, gnome-shell-extensions which adds the 'theme' feature (and others) built for Factory;

    Installed the package gnome-shell-extensions.

    But when I open gnome-tweak-tool it says "User theme extension not enabled".

    I checked the command line option for gnome-tweak-tool

    They look like this

    Code:
    user0@linux-so4e:~> gnome-shell-extension-tool --help
    Usage: gnome-shell-extension-tool [options]
    
    Options:
      -h, --help          show this help message and exit
      --create-extension  Create a new GNOME Shell extension
    How to enable user theme extension ?
