Hi,

I'm a Linux newbie and I thought installing a theme to Linux was as simple as just downloading it and then pointing to that file from the Theme Manager.

I had no luck. Could someone gove me pointers on how to install a theme?

Are themes specific to KDE or GNOME? Thanks.

Themes are specific to GNOME and KDE.
In gnome there are two types of themes: WIndow border (Window manager), Application. Make sure you have the correct type of theme for the section of the theme manager you are in. The theme ".tar.gz" files for most Metacity (GNOME window manager) themes start with "MCITY-" and most GTK ones begin with "GTK2-"

See Gnome Art and look under the GTK2 and metacity sections for themes. Just drag the "tar.gz"or "tar.bz2" file from nautilus to the correct tab on the theme manager.

In kde, just go to Kde look.

If that doen't work, thereis something wrong with the theme manager.
