Installing themes in Gnome 2.0

I'm in Gnome 2.0. If I open the gnome-theme-manager (if, of course, it in fact opens instead of crashing) & go to Install theme, it lets me open the tar.gz file (I've got these files in /home/oeln/.themes/ - once I 'install' them the file is no longer there) I indicate & gives me the impression it's installing; but if I go then to look for it in the list of themes offered it isn't there. I've gone through this with over 10 themes, including 'gtk' themes & others (I guess I'm not even certain which themes I ought to be installing).

I'd be grateful for any info or guidance on this..

Thank you,

It has been a long time since I've installed themes in gnome, but in fact, I don't think they appears in the screen where you choose the themes. Click in "custom" instead and you may find the themes "parts" you've installed, such as icons and colors

Oh well, I'd be glad to; but I've no longer got an opening gnome-theme-manager - it only crashes & gives me 'fatal error's now..
