How to Install Cinnamon Themes

After installing Cinnamon on my Fedora Linux, we can optionally install additional Cinnamon themes. Cinnamon developer and its community provide many themes available for download. You can check new Cinnamon themes here. This tutorial will show you how to download and install Cinnamon theme on Fedora. Before you go any further, make sure you already install Cinnamon on Fedora.

Steps to install Cinnamon theme

1. Download Cinnamon theme. You can browse and download Cinnamon themes. Download it as zipped or any other compressed file.

2. Move the extracted folder to /home/username/.themes. You can create this .themes directory if it does not exist. For example:

mv Jelly_Bean_2.3 /home/dhani/.themes

3. Now apply the new theme. Open Cinnamon settings via Menu >> Appearance >> Cinnamon Settings
