    You really need to give us the theme names so that we can take a look at them and tell you how to install.

    the only way i can install these and other themes is by doing it on a console
    tar zxf x.x.theme.tar.gz
    and mv the theme to the /usr/share/theme or icons,

    I managed to install the two gtk themes using the theme manager under Desktop -> Preferences. That installs it only for a single user. The procedure you did installs the theme for all users on the system. I didn't try installing the icon theme because it was taking long to download.
