Unable to select a theme in XFCE4


Hi

I've downloaded a theme for my XFCE4 desktop (xfwm 4.4).

As per instructions I've placed it under ~/.themes.

I cannot see the theme either in "Change GTK theme" or within "User Settings" from the xfce panel main menu.

Here is my theme directory.

Code:
bash-3.1$ ls -Rail .themes/LiNsta-Black-Plastic/
.themes/LiNsta-Black-Plastic/:
total 12
2878153 drwxrwxrwx 3 daz daz 4096 Oct 27 09:41 .

bash-3.1$
There also appears to be a whole raft of themes in /usr/share/themes, many of which I cannot see either when in the GUI theme selection windows.

Any ideas.
