    Installing New Gnome Theme


    I recently downloaded a tarabll for Gnome theme and when I untar/unzip it, I get a directory with a bunch of .png files and one .gtkrc file. Can anyone tell me what I need to do make this work in Gnome2?

    OK, I was able to install it using the gnome theme preference but I only get the options for the "control" tab. Upon further research, I found out that the tar ball doesn't have a metacity subdirectory. It only has gtk and gtk-2.0.

    Some other tarballs have the metacity subdirectory. When it does, it give me options to choose for the "Window Border." Any ideas?
