They have post the reason why on
I have no problem using the linked theme(s). In the archive there is a folder called "Open_me", and it's its contents which must be placed directly in "~./themes", so that it's "~./themes/Dark_Void" instead of "~./themes/Open_me/Dark_Void".
The general structure has to be "~/.themes/Foo/cinnamon" with "cinnamon" containing a file called "cinnamon.css". Same applies to "usr/share/themes".
the same of David H. problem.
