Well, yeah!

They were Gnome Shell Themes (GST), GTK2 & GTK3. Only the GST worked. The others I removed. I didn't know which worked, which didn't. But now I know GST works... Next, icons...lol

I asked so I could download and examine them and see if I could find what was not working.
Not many Gnome Shell Themes work. It seems low priority to some to make. I made one recently and I still have not tweaked all the bugs out of it.
More of the Desktop Themes work than the GST. You can check your gtk Version by terminaling:
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy libgtk-3-0

Then see if the theme you are looking at downloading is compatible with that version.

This really is one of the reasons I am still hung up on XFCE 4.12. With XFCE 4.12 (Not 4.14) it is still heavily using gtk2 and everything works.

Hi JeffK969,

Hope you don't mind me pointing out that Xfce is not a distribution, it's a desktop environment that is lightweight in a similar way to LXDE (but NOT the same). One of my few favourite distro's are non-PAE ones for older kit, specifically AntiX-17 and also the Community led stable versions of SolydX. ;) :D
