    Theming & Tweaks

    I am trying to get this theme installed.

    http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=148398

    I copied the content into the folder, but nothing happened.

    Also, there was a sudo apt-get install command (i forget what it is now), but that couldn't find the package.

    Anyone know how I can install this theme?

    Ubuntu 12.04, Unity.

    Also, I saw in a few different screenshots, that the people have there devices/mounted drives in nautilus on the bottom instead of the top. How do I accomplish this?

    Re: Theming & Tweaks

    The apt-get install command won't work unless you are trying to install the theme via a PPA repository which includes that theme.

    I have had that theme installed and there is more than one theme in the folder. Extract the individual themes from the parent folder before moving them to .themes of usr/share/themes.

    To use the second location which will make the themes available to all users use the following in the terminal.
    Code:
    gksudo nautilus

    I have not tried to change the order of the mounted drives and have no way of knowing what version of Nautilus was in use in the screen-shots. Nautilus features have changed in the last few versions.

    I am unable to drag and drop side pane items in 12.10 . I had done this in earlier versions of Nautilus at least with folders.
