    Angry Can't install themes

    I'm trying to install the Azure theme from GNOME Look, but there's a problem. No matter what I do, I can't get the theme to show up in the Tweak Tool. I tried installing the theme with the OCS Desktop app, downloading the file from GNOME Look and extracting it to the .themes directory (which is what OCS did anyway). I also have the problem with cursors. How can I fix this?

    Open the folder and once extracted you'll find a number of sub-folders with variations of the theme and these are folders used for installing the themes. After installed try logging out and back in and check for the new themes.

    Re: Can't install themes

    I'm guessing you're running this theme in particular:
    https://www.gnome-look.org/content/s...content=168843

    IF so double check to make sure you have the needed engine packages installed.
    Simply run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf
    There's also an install file for it.
    to run the install file
    Code:
    cd /themes/Azure-theme
    ./install.sh
    if it gives a permission denied, do
    Code:
    chmod +x install.sh
    and try the ./install.sh command again.

    If, however, this is another azure theme, then ignore all I've posted.
