    Installing themes in Gnome


    I've downloaded a couple of themes from freshmeat.net. In RH 9.1, I went to "Preferences > Theme". I get a list of the themes that are already install on the computer. So, I untar my Matrix theme:

    Code:
    tar -xvzf tux_matrix-0.60.0.tar.gz
    and it extracts the files to /home/tristan/themes/tux_matrix.themed/

    I go to 'Install theme...' and browse to the /home/tristan/themes/tux_matirx.themed/ I've tried selecting all the files on there as the theme file, but when I click 'OK', it doesn't install the theme. Any ideas?

    U forgot the . in front of the themes.
    The location of the gnome themes is : $HOME/.themes
    After that it should work

    Note $HOME is usualy /home/username
