Is this Windows or Linux?

For Windows there is a FAQ entry you should read.

For linux the theme control plugin should work just fine depending
on your environment and what options are you trying to change. Things like
interface font and the like may not work in recent GNOME/etc. environments
as the environment settings will be taking priority and will need to be
changed from there.
