    after reading the links, I am still not sure how to install the themes (specifically GnomeArch). I have extracted the zip archive and put file in /usr/share/themes, but it does not show up in gnome-tweak-tools. what should i do?

    Themes 1-2-3 all dark and very samey.
    4 = ruined by red bits
    5 = nice, but just looks the same as the theme I’m already using, that Linux Mint ripped off.
