I'm starting with Ubuntu. I've just upgraded from 11.10 to 12.04 release, I had Raleigh as window theme, it has changed since then and I can't find Raleigh in the list (in Tweak). How to have it back?

In the File System directory I find /usr/share/theme/raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Can I use that, and how ?

is there a folder /usr/share/themes/Raleigh ? If you install myunity, run and choose themes, is Raleigh listed? – fossfreedom Apr 27 '12 at 18:03
There is a folder there called Raleigh. I think there are some more problems with the themes in /usr/share/themes. The one I'm interested in, LowContrast, doesn't work at all the way it used to. I tried it with Ubuntu Tweak and with Gnome Tweak Tools. – user25656 Apr 27 '12 at 18:11
The folder in usr does exist but I got an invalid code error when I tried to import it in the theme list. I installed MyUnity and found Raleigh listed. I'm using it now, but it looks different now than it was before upgrading. It seems more complicated to choose any Theme now, may be because I'm using both Tweak and MyUnity ? Thanks anyway for your answer. – Etty May 5 '12 at 11:52
