View Full Version : [gnome] Themes Won't Install (Gnome 2.28)

December 8th, 2009, 04:20 AM
I'm having the weirdest issue with installing themes. I download any tar.gz file and try to install it with the "Appearance Preferences" menu and it won't show up as an available theme.

The files show up in my /.themes folder and most (if not all) of the theme's look will be applied as a "custom" theme.

I can't find any info on this. I've got a clean install of Karmic and I went ahead and tried installing all the gtk2-engine* files I could to see if that was the issue. (It was not.)

I also installed the Emerald theme manager with no success there, either. The themes install, but won't apply.

Some of them aren't full themes.
In appearances click on customize and you'll see them under controls.
