GTK2 Themes in GNOME 3


GNOME 3 GTK3 theme specifications point that themes (user-specific) should be installed under ~/.local/share/themes.
That won't work for GTK2, and GTK2 themes are required to be installed in ~/.themes

This is a known bug in bugzilla.gnome (cant find #) and GTK2 themes should be accessible under ~/.local/share/themes also. 

Installing a theme (GTK2 & GTK3) both in ~./.themes and ~./local/share/themes makes Tweak Tool to show themes twice.

In my opinion this is also a security regression since users should use root access for installing themes (!!) under ~/usr/share/themes.
When "users", add several scripts and programs that install themes.

This bug is over a year, and I know GTK2 is not actively developed, but there are still many GTK2 apps.

Any solutions for installing GTK (2&3) themes under GNOME3, without root privileges?

Thank you
