From xfce-look.org, at least, though I'm pretty sure it would work for the other desktops.

What worked for me is to backport & install ocs-url, then go to xfce-look, pick an item and click on it. When that item's page opens up, you'll see

Product Files (#) Changelog

Then click on the Files link, which will drop down a list of installable files. If they support the OCS-url install, there will be a big blue "Install" button on the right. Clicking that will bring up a dialog box asking for your approval for the install, clicking OK will install the theme, wallpaper, etc. in your home folder. It looks like you'll have to uninstall them manually, though.

OCS-url packages: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxE7w ... U9PQkhTTGc

It appears that opendesktop.org also now has a massive Electron application that accomplishes much the same thing, with a few more features, such as uninstall. I'll have to check that out.

I just discovered this, and it's too late to get into 16.1, but maybe we could have a metapackage update pull in ocs-url, as it's quite small.

Thanks Stevo
Did a git install works fine.

It installs fine, and has potential--but I'm not keeping it for now.
