Make sure clean_theme is installed. Another requirement is nodejs and less that should be installed on the server.

Install npm and nodejs packages

  • Modify the sources.list-file on wheezy-systems to be able to use apt-get to install nodejs.

    • nano /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main

  • Run apt-get update to reload the sources.list.

    • apt-get update

  • Install nodejs

    • apt-get -t wheezy-backports install nodejs update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/node nodejs /usr/bin/nodejs 100

  • Install curl, since the npm script uses this.

    • apt-get install curl -y

  • Install npm using wget

    • wget -O install.sh https://www.npmjs.org/install.sh --no-certificate-check sh install.sh

  • Install some dependancies using npm

    • npm install -g less less-plugin-clean-css 

Once this is done you should upload your theme unzipped with a tree as following in an addons folder:
--- static (dir)
--- views (dir)

--- __init__,py
--- __openerp__.py

After doing this, restart your server, go to settings, click update module list. You should now be able to find your theme, without an error.

Is the addons folder properly specified in your .conf file? Did you update your modules list? 

As a sidenote: this theme seems to work only for the master branch, when trying to run it on 8.0 it results in an error.
