I downloaded the theme tarball to my Desktop and unpacked it. The tarball is matrix_green-1.2.x.tar.gz.
I unzipped and untarred it to the desktop. gunzip < matrix_green-1.2.x.tar.gz | tar xvf -
I got a folder "Matrix_Green" with a subfolder "gtk" and a text file within the folder "gtkrc"
I then went to System - > Preferences -> Theme. I do not see a "Customize" button but I do see "Install Theme" and "Theme Details". I choose "Install Theme" and then go to the folder "Matrix_Green" on the Desktop and then click "Open". Clicking "Open" takes me to the subfolder "gtk". I click "open" again and then I see the "gtkrc" file. I click "open" on this file and I get the message:
"The file format is invalid."
I have tried dragging the main folder of the theme, as well the specific gtkrc file into the original window pane and I receive the same file format invalid message.
Do you know what file format I should be looking for? I am running a current version of Gnome since I am running Fedora Core 6, so I do not think it is a compatibility issue.
