    if you want nice themes for gnome you can visit http://gnome-look.org/

    1. create a hidden folder call .themes to place all new themes (if you don't have one)

    #mkdir /root/.themes

    2. Download the theme you like and extract folder

    #tar -xvf <location of tarball file>
    (if file is not a .tar file but a .zip file then you might need to use "unzip" or "gunzip" command)

    3. Copy the theme folder extracted and place it in the .themes folder
    #cp -rf <location of theme> /root/.themes/

    4. Open gnome-tweak-tool using the command in a terminal

    #gnome-tweak-tool

    and you will see kali linux's themes and the theme you download!

    NOTE: ONLY DOWNLOAD GTK3 THEMES since kali ships with gnome 3XXX.
