    You can install gnome-tweak-tool from the Ubuntu repo by using Synaptic Pkg Mgr. You can get the theme extension and more HERE.

    Hey,

    - Open a terminal
    - Paste this:sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
    - Wait for it to install
    - You can find it in your programs and click it, or launch it from the terminal command line (sudo gnome-tweak-tool)

    Regards,
    Effenberg

    The method that worked for me is discussed in this post: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/10/offic...xtensions.html

    Basically, make sure your gnome shell is up to date (should be 3.2) and add the user-theme extension from the Webupd8 PPA.

    In the future, extensions.gnome.org should allow for easy installation of themes, but for now, the webup8 PPA has worked well for me.

    Re: 11.10 Gnome 3 themes extension

    does anyone else notice this problem, if i try to use a transparent theme then i can see the nautilus menu bar for the desktop behind gnome-shells top-bar (see attached screenshot, on the left it merges with the activities tab) , is there a way to disable the menu bar for the desktop?

    I think if you set "Have file manager handle the desktop" to NO in gnome-tweak-tool, then it goes away?

    Re: 11.10 Gnome 3 themes extension

    I got the Tron Legacy theme from Deviant Art ..... TRON THEME

    I also used the Elegant Awoken Icons .....

    I also liked it when I had it like this - with a different tron wallpaper - but dual screen ....



    Hope this helps ....
