I've never tried installing a theme in GIMP.
I've seen it mentioned in the "Settings" window, but I've never stumbled upon any GIMP themes during my Internet travels.
How would I go about getting and installing that theme (or others)?
I meant even when it couldn't be in the cache.
I suspect GIMP must update some sort of DB of plugins, fonts, etc. whenever it notices a new one.

Horace, you are a genius. How did you do that. I am a Gimp user, but not at that level.
We all know that our linux OSes get that easily (gtk is part of the system look).
Then one particular someone got a theme installer for Windows 32bit (many thanks!) GIMPER.NET - The GIMP Community • View topic - Gimp Themes v1.0 for Windows
And that works on the 32bit version of GIMP. If you use that, all good, you're done.
Here all themes for win32: GTK+ for Windows Runtime Environment - Browse /GTK+ Themes Package/2009-09-07 at SourceForge.net
The home base of gtk themes: Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop - GNOME-Look.org
But the 64bit GIMP, that I use, doesn't use 32bit themes and has exclusively 64bit plugins only and alongside the preinstalled themes I had to build the Aurora one using mingw64 for Windows. I then had aurora.dll as 64bit and still needed to use the theme installer found on Gimper to get all files (theme specs, colors, settings) to use with my 64bit aurora.dll. Unfortunately I don't have the other great themes ported to 64 just Aurora, but this one was easy to build. Still Aurora theme has about 3 of 4 versions: light, silver, midnight... all nice.
Maybe I'll try to build the others but couldn't find the source code... and personally all I needed was Aurora (I like it and since I'm not too good at building... it worked directly and I was lucky because the code was for linux).
If you guys are interested, I'll provide the dll, but there's some stuff to setup first so I'll better get the whole GIMP I use, already themed, to SkyDrive.
Thanks for the interest.
