Thank you for your reply.
I am trying to confirm the version of Gnome I am using. Installed RH9 and then did the yum update. Just trying to see which version I am at.
I am aware of the theme manager-my problem is getting the downloaded theme in the list. I think i am making this harder than what it is.
Here is what I do:
1. Download theme in tar.gz format to a home/downloads folder
2. Gunzip theme.tar.gz to same folder
3. cd to theme folder
4. tar -xvf theme.tar
5. from there I dont know what to do. I look for the "readme"
Sorry for the newbie question--If i can get past a few simple things I think I will enjoy Linux alot more..
