    cinnamon makeup

    http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/

    you can install themes from above either by install ppa or by extracting themes in home


    Extract the downloaded folder and move the two subfolders "Baldr" and "Loki" into either /usr/share/themes/ (as root) or ~/.themes/


    http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/themes/view/38

    i prefer extracting themes in home :)

    for example theme Nightlife 2.2

    1st open home folder in view show hidden files and folder there create a folder .themes

    now extract Nightlife 2.2 (BDHQ-FHRP-G68X)

    extract folder you get a folder name BDHQ-FHRP-G68X

    inside it you see many nightlife folders(themes) nightlife mint nightlife flex........etc

    now cut these folders and paste them in

    home/.themes (hidden folder that you created above)

    from cinnamon setting change theme according your need :))
