Google Chrome theme fix on Linux

(Off-topic: this is my first post in more than two years on this blog! In the meantime, I learned to speak English better and I forgot most of my Linux know-how...)

Right, so Google inadvertently fscked things up with Chrome (which, with all its downsides, is still the best browser in my opinion) – with the Chrome themes, to be more precise. Since you normally get them via the Google Store, the ones that you've already tried out are displayed as being already installed. However, if you want to use an old (installed!) theme again... you might not be able to. It's shown as installed, but there's no means to choose it. You can't uninstall it either, since it's not an app, but a – erm – theme.
