Adding new themes to Zorin 15 (Beta)

In order to add new themes, you will need to install 'gnome-tweaks' (formerly gnome-tweak-tool), either via command line, or via Synaptic Package Manager, which you will have to install either via command line (Terminal) or via the Software channel:

I recently found a couple of GTK3 themes on gnome-look.org - my current theme is 'Midnight-GnomeShell-Blue':

In the top image you will see a 'none' button with a folder icon - you click on this and browse to your download folder. Gnome-Shell-Themes have to be in .zip format in order to install on Zorin 15 (Beta) so if there is a theme that you like and it is in .tar.xz, simply extract the tarball, then right-click the extracted folder, select compress, and select .zip format - now you can install your new theme. ;) :D
