    What operating system ? Below is the description of the themes you installed.
    Themes for the MDM display manager
    If you are using Ubuntu and want to install the Gnome Shell it is in the software center. You will want to install the Gnome Tweak Tool also.

    After installation log out and in and select Gnome from the log-in list.

    The Gnome Shell should say activities in the top left corner with the default theme. If you are seeing the old style menu on the top panel you are logged into classic or it is defaulting to that desktop.

    Normally if you can run Unity 3D (Ubuntu) you can run the shell but others have had a problem being able to log into the shell. If that is the case there are threads on the forum that speak to that problem so I would look for them first.

    Posting some information about your computer and graphics card may be helpful. The following will display information about your Graphics card/chip and driver.
