I have Fedora 20 and have installed murrine engine, pixbuf engine and unicco engine.

And I have below questions:

  1. How to install emerald themes and compiz in Fedora 20 GNOME
  2. How to install other third-pary GTK themes? I have few GTK themes downloaded from net. But they are not appearing as they have shown it. I am having this issue with almost every GTK theme.
  3. Which extensions can beautify GNOME?

@Gaurav Dighe

su -c 'dnf -y install conky'

If you want configure easy conky, You can use "conky-manager" available in postinstallerf... If you want an gnome-side-panel, maybe exist an gnome extension

Also exist Cairo Dock

su -c 'dnf -y install cairo-dock'

1) Gnome 3 uses Mutter compositing window manager, so Compiz can't be used with gnome-shell.

2) In order to use the GTK+ themes, you only need to extract them in ~/.themes, then open gnome-tweak-tool and select them from there.

3) About extensions, please take a look at: and browse the site, it is easy to install/uninstall them from Firefox. You can also use gnome-tweak-tool to manage your extensions.
