Change GTK3 theme in fedora 16

Hi. I'm using fedora 16 (gnome shell) 64 bit. I was wondering how to change the GTK3 theme. I saw other forum posts on this topic but no working answers. I tried creating the .themes folder and putting the themes in there and unpacking theme (I downloaded them form deviantart). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Change GTK3 theme in fedora 16

You can try putting themes into this folder:
Code:
/usr/share/themes
note: you can switch between themes in gnome-tweak-tool

Yes, gnome-tweak-tool is probably the easiest way of changing between pre-made themes. It gathers GTK+, Shell and other GNOME theme aspects into one place. If you want to modify a theme though, you'll have to get your hands dirty with XML/CSS/JavaScript.

Download your theme, place it in your home directory in a folder called ".themes", and then install Gnome-tweak-tool (see illustration) then run the tweak tool "Advanced Settings" and select your theme elements there.

You mean someone actually wants to change that fine Adwaita theme that Gnome provides?

Which reminds me. I need to finish working on the, "Berkley Bordello" theme one of these days. <....>
