I have noticed that in the GNOME Tweak Tool there are options to change the themes of various things on your system:

enter image description here

And I have also noticed two Numix themes there:

  • Numix
  • Numix-Daily

Now I have an idea of what Numix is as I use the Numix-Circle theme for icons, however I do not know what the difference between the Numix theme, and the Numix-Daily theme is, so I was wondering if someone could explain as I do not see an obvious visual difference?

There is currently no difference. You have the PPA ppa:numix/ppa in your system and in this PPA is the package numix-gtk-theme. This package installs the Numix theme and creates a link as you can see in the output of the commands below

% cat /var/lib/dpkg/info/numix-gtk-theme.postinst 
#!/bin/bash

set -e

if [ "$1" = "configure" ]; then
    if [ ! -e "/usr/share/themes/Numix" ]; then
        ln -sf "/usr/share/themes/Numix Daily" "/usr/share/themes/Numix"
    fi
fi



exit 0
% ls -laog /usr/share/themes/

Numix = stable release (current version)

Numix-Daily = unstable release (development version)

That is meant generally - in this special case, the answer of @A.B. is valid !
