How do i install a custom theme (not directly from Obsidian)

I try to install a custom theme to obsidian. When I copy paste the “obsidian.css” file into the theme folder the theme show up buggy. There are more files in the folder I downloaded but when I just put the folder in the themes folder the theme does not appeal in the appearance settings to choose. Can anyone help?

The theme needs two essential files: manifest.json and theme.css

In .obsidian/themes you should have a folder with the theme name and the above two files. That should do it.

Don’t know the specific theme in your screenshot but don’t see those files.
