I just wanted to convey my thanks to you satya and the rest of the Numix team for all of your hard work . I purchased the GTK dark theme and light theme and square icon themes but for some reason the Numix light theme will not extract correctly plus the icons turn white and do not adjust to a dark color I am also using the numix circle icons but it doesn't seem to make allowances for dark icon set on the tool bar. I have also been attempting to install my newly purchased Numix theme and icon packs into Linuxmint 17 Mate 1.8 edition with no luck what so ever. Also I am new to Linux can you please give me step by step instructions as to how to extract them to the theme folder please ? I did use the PPA and noticed that it placed the GTK theme and circle icons in the correct folders. I Love your artwork . satya can you please assist me ? Kindest regards Lynette

Yeah sure. Mail us at so that I can mail you a newer version of Light theme. And we shall discuss over mail (or G+ chat if you prefer).

I have been checking my email @ and have not seen updated version of the GTK dark or light theme & square icons  which I wish to apply to my Linuxmint 17 Mate 1.8. edition and Linuxmint 17 Cinnamon edition Also I would still sincerely appreciate a step by step guide as to how to extract and install the themes properly. Satya can you please assist me? Kindest regards Lynette.
