    Theme does not contain themerc nor...


    I have installed Debian (woody) on my P3 700 machine like 10 times now using both my CD and using a network install (and a different video card and different configs etc etc). Everything works except themes. When trying to initalize one I get the message-

    "Theme does not contain a .themerc nor a theme file."

    I have scoured the WWW looking for an answer and all I ever see is "this was fixed with the upgrade" Well it's NOT fixed (and I assume the network install would be the newest of everything) and I have no clue how to go about it. I even went so far as to install additional themes and while they all install, none work.

    Could anyone give me a SIMPLE method of addressing this issue? I'm pretty new at this command line stuff but can manage the apt-get thing and some other simple stuff

    TIA,

    Debian is not known for cuttin edge packages, its stable. try downloading the tarball from the site and using that.

    It turned out to be a package conflict (I think).
    What I did was install cleanly leaving out most everything optional. The themes then worked OK and I added additional stuff as I needed it.
