Hi harishpathangay

Perhaps you could first tell us where you get the theme from. Then we can work out how to install it for you.

Icon sets can easily be installed via the Peppermint Settings Panel and then Customize Look and Feel. Click the Icon Theme tab then click on the +install and then go and find the tar.gz file you downloaded.

Main Themes are done differently.

Hi
The more technical members will need a link to the files you downloaded. If you can supply that... and the details about the trusty .deb file. The more detailed information you can provide the better.

All will help them to decide is it feasible. It maybe that until the person who designed the theme updates it, you won't be able to use it in P7.

hi,
it was downloaded from gnome-look.org.
the links are not working right now. but it did work a year before.
I downloaded those files and installed it in my PM 6 machine.
But now I have reinstalled PM 7 on that machine and find that those downloaded files are not working.
