    Themes on 12.04 classic not working.

    Finally upgraded to 12.04 LTS, and I am having a bit of a problem.

    Since I don't like Unity, I use classic with effects.

    I am trying to install and try out several different themes. I've gone to http://gnome-look.org/ and found a few I liked. The zip files are in the /usr/share/themes, and /home/<username>/.themes folders, and extracted.

    When I go to appearances control, the only options are the default 4 choices. How do I get them to be shown in the drop-down so I can use them?

    You need to install a tool like Ubuntu Tweaks or MyUnity in order to apply the downloaded themes.
