Exactly what did you copy into /etc/default/grub? I tried a couple things
and couldn't get it to work.

I did get it to work using update-alternatives. Maybe your way is easier
than this:

- Install clearlooks-phenix-darkpurpy-theme
- Make sure the following line is in /etc/default/grub


Then run:
update-alternatives --install \
/usr/share/desktop-base/grub-themes/desktop-grub-theme desktop-grub-theme \
/usr/share/desktop-base/grub/themes/darkpurpy-grub 20

Generate a new boot menu:

To change the slim theme:
update-alternatives --install \
/usr/share/slim/themes/desktop-slim-theme desktop-slim-theme \
/usr/share/slim/themes/devuan-curve-darkpurpy 20

To go back to cinnabar:
update-alternatives --config desktop-grub-theme
update-alternatives --config desktop-slim-theme

I didn't mess with the window theme or desktop background. Those are easy
to change in user settings.
