Thread: Gnome 3.18.1 trying to install theme

  1. #1

    Default Gnome 3.18.1 trying to install theme

    I like XFCE and am about to go back to it. But Gnome is new to me and I would really like
    to learn it.

    But I can't take this any more. It's been hours of work and no progress on this simple task of
    using the "tweak tool" in an effort to install a tar.gz file as a theme. I got this file from the
    gnome-look website.

    The home/myusername/.theme folder shows up in Dolphin, but not in "Files" or in the "tweak
    tool" file path when I click the little folder icon in Appearance/themes. Why is this? I have
    permissions, obviously.

    Thanks for help,

    Hi
    What theme (a link would help )?

    Some themes have per-requisites, theme-engines, some may not have been updated to work with the latest Gnome shell...

    Hi
    I'm guessing that theme is too old (2013) for the 3.18 shell release....
    have you looked at the available system gtk themes?

    If you have a) installed the gnome user theme extension
    (https://extensions.gnome.org) and b) extract the downloaded file and
    then create a zip file from it it should open, but of course it says
    invalid theme...
