I've downloaded some GTK themes from http://ubuntu-art.org/index.php?xcontentmode=100&PHPSESSID=180c7cef6c965351b9d18e19e3d037e9 and I can't see any instructions on how to install them. For additional information I am running Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal, have Ubuntu Tweak already installed. Thanks for any help!

Home. Was just checking out your question, If you downloaded themes from the source in your link, this will cause you more trouble as they are GTK2 themes. You need GTk3 w/GTK2 to work properly in 12.10 –  Stephen Myall Oct 23 '12 at 13:13

i guess if it is supported by your desktop you can easily run nautilus with admin rights:

  • gksu nautilus

then just go to usr/share/themes folder and unzip files you have downloaded from site. Use gnome-tweak-tool ot ubuntu tweak to chose themes or you can add webupd8theme repository by

  • sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/themes && sudo apt-get update

and install themes via synaptic package manager -just search for themes. https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/themes
