From the names they do not look like Gimp themes, where did you get them?

You can put themes in /usr/share/gimp/2.0/themes/ (your right side clip) but it is not the best place

Put your themes in your home folder (aka gimp profile) ~/.gimp-2.8/themes (your left side clip)

Attached some themes that work here in PClinuxOS / Gimp 2.8.10 unzip into /.gimp-2.8/themes See if they work and we can take it from there.


.zip  themes.zip (Size: 630.02 KB / Downloads: 97)

Remember that in linux the style of any application takes its look from the overall linux theme the Gimp theme only modifies icons/sliders etc.

ahh. http://thegimp.ca/category/gimp-themes/

These are windoze Gimp themes, some use a 'theme engine' which linux ignores, others are a bit more universal but tend to only partially work.

example in a Bodhi linux notebook

edit: a bit of a look-around comes up with

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/36057148/GTK2 Themes for GIMP 2.8.zip

many of the ones you have but in original 'linux' format

dark theme if dark is your thing.
