Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm experiencing weird issues with Gnome themes. Basically, when I use gnome-theme-manager and I choose a theme it... does not work. Nothing happens, nothing changes. Everything is working for pre-installed themes.
I thought there might be something with the theme I tried to install so I downloaded and tried over 50 themes. None of them works correctly.
On my second PC, I got Debian installed and everything is working correctly there, every single theme works.
Could you link to one or two of the themes that are not working so others could look at them?
Also, a word to the wise: This is a forum, not a chat. It takes some time for persons to read new posts and respond to them. It may be a while before someone who may be able to help you finds your question, decides he or she can help, and frames a response.
I know your problem is urgent to you, but three hours is not long to allow for someone to volunteer to help.
And, no, I've never had a problem with KDE or Gnome themes not working, so I would have to test some stuff, if I chose to, to try to help you.
It's up to you to motivate me to want to help you.
Tried your suggestions, without any luck. I think I've lost any hope now. I tried it with different themes, none of them works correctly. I have totally no idea what could be wrong here. When I try them on Debian, they work perfectly.
Distribution: Centos, knoppix, Fedora, Mepis, Zenwalk, Mint
I tried the themes from the link you posted and they work just follow the directions as @MTK358 shows on his images, I tried them on my CentOS, the red x marks you mentioned seeing is because you have not installed the fonts that the theme uses after installing the elementary icons those x marks dissapeared. This is the first time I have installed a theme on CentOS never even thought of it mainly changed the background before and that was it.
