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.

Ok so everywhere that i can find to help u install themes all say that extract them then run ./configure then make then install, but when i type ./configure it says its not a valid directory, so i tried just configure and it says not a valid command, what is going on.
After having looked at the error messages and you distribution which, is slackware I think you'll have to think of a different approach to the problem.
Presuming you clicked on "Slackware download" and downloaded the package for Slackware which would be named crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz - you'll have to do as described below:
After having downloaded the file crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz, do not extract it, save it to a directory. Now use konsole to change to the directory where you saved crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz and run the following command-->
This command will install the package for you and then after I'd assume you know how to get KDE to use crystal theme. ;-)
When you run the command installpkg, it outputs errors but, the screen scrolls so fast you'll never notice. So, after running installpkg scroll up and see if there are any error messages. Probably, you don't have the required libraries installed, I'm not sure. But, do llok for the error from installpkg and post them over here.
alright when i typed installpkg crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz, I got:
installing package crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz
crystal: Craystal is a kwin windows decoration theme
crystal: Main features are the (pseudo) transparent titlebar, buttons and
crystal: borders. its also has some little usuablility enhancements.
and hten it goes back to the command prompt, i went into Kpackage and all the files are there.
So i havent been playin with my computer for a couple days but i got that thing installed but when i go into the theme manager and try to install new theme cause it doenst appear in the list, where exactly would i find the theme file for it, any ideas?
