May it be that it doesn't work because it is a theme for Gnome 2 but you are using Gnome 3?

Isn't there another location for those ?

Nope, they go into the same folder. But Gnome 3 is using GTK3, so that theme should also contain a GTK-3.0 directory, so I assume that it is only a GTK2-theme.

i get a GTK3 theme--->>extract tar.gz folder contents--->>put the folder in ~/.themes--->>selects the theme from gnome-tweak-tool directly
will the theme appear in gnome-tweak-tool automatically as shell themes do ?

The themes that come with the distribution should be in /usr/share/themes.

Seems to be fine.

I have not much experience with Gnome 3, but if it works as any other DE then the tweak tool should show the theme automatically.
