    cinnamon makeup

    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/

    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 :))
