    When I execute it as a terminal file, it gives me this message:

  • Can type these commands before running the script and try:

    mkdir ~/.themes
    mkdir ~/.icons

    <run mac4lin="" install="" script="">

    I seem to not be able to use the theme. I have tried to run the .sh and it
    appears like it worked - however I still can not find how to switch to the
    theme?

    thanks

    @infra_red_dude 11.10 I believe? I went and downloaded the other item (gnome
    tweak tools) and I seem to have an issue with that as well. sigh.

     
  • Apparently GNOME3 disabled changing themes and this is the only way. I don't
    use Ubuntu 11.10 so I can't say for sure if there is another way to enable
    themes.

    What is the issue that you see in Tweak tool?
