GTK2 Themes for GIMP not showing
I have just downloaded GTK2 Themes for GIMP 2.8.zip and drag and dropped those these in to the Gimp 2 Program folder/share/themes. Though I have restart Gimp even computer but when I click on Edit/Preference/Themes on the right side it only shows
Theme Folder
Default (here is folder path)
Small (here is folder path)

There are 15 themes but not showing. Is there any way to use them?
Your reply will be appreciated.
Thank you

I tried to delete this post twice but got strange messages when click Delete.
I found if I put new themes in to C: \ Users \ My Nme \ .gimp-2.8 \ themes it works fine.

RE: GTK2 Themes for GIMP not showing
I like the themes, the doom3 theme is futuristic, I'm currently using the Prudence theme, very slick.

Glad you were able to resolve your problem quickly.

I'm wondering, putting them in the \My name\.gimp-2.8\themes folder , does it preview the theme when you click on it on the list in preferences?

Hi,
Thank you for reply.
When I had put the themes inside the theme folder in Program files (Gimp2) it did not work but when I put themes inside C: \User\.gimp-2.8\themes folder working fine and yest can preview too.

Once I used Adobe Photoshop a lot, then I started Inkscape and now learning GIMP.

Thank you.
