Please do not double post (you essentially asked the same question in different words). – RolandiXor Nov 17 '11 at 16:14

make sure you have gnome tweak tool installed, its in the software center. if/when you do, make sure you put the unzipped/unrared/untarred theme into .themes folder in you home folder (press Ctrl + H to make them visible, as it is a hidden file) if the isn't there, just create it and name it .themes

then open gnome tweak tool (called advanced settings in the menu)

look for the theme in the theme section, select it, and then it will be applied

i hope this helps
