I've just done a fresh install of Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon and would like to install a theme but haven't had any luck. (I've never installed a theme before).
I have downloaded the sable theme from www.noobslab.com/2014/09/another-two-great-dark-themes-sable.html I followed the installation instructions as explained:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/themes sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sable-gtk
But I am not sure what to do next. This theme is apparently compatible with Cinnamon.
If I go to the Menu->Appearance menu, the theme does not appear. If I click "install" and browse to the
/usr/share/themes folder, the new them is there, but there is nothing to install. The folder just contains various files so I don't know how to actually activate the theme.
To be clear: I am just using this theme as an example, but have not been able to install any themes.
