installing gnome themes on arch

i've recently installed arch on my desktop and i'm currently using gnome as the DE.

I found a theme i want to use but when i've installed and set it, the scrolll bars, tabs etc are all using the default grey 2D looking stuff (is this GTK 1.x stuff?)

the theme in particular is this.

Thanks in advance

Sometimes you have to choose the border theme manually. Go to gnome theme manager and click the theme. Check that all is set to use you're theme.
