New theme help


Hello!

I got this new theme, but I think its the source code.
I need to be able to install this GNOME theme, do I need a special compiler or somthing?
I run Ubuntu 8.04 amd64

Can you let us know the name of the theme and a link to where you downloaded it from?

It's from http://rapidshare.de/files/38210507/MyTheme.tar.gz.html
It is supposed to make your desktop look like a Mac OS

What you need to do is extract the contents of the file e.g. by doing
Code:
tar zxvf MyTheme.tar.gz
Alternatively, you can use Ark or File-Roller to extract the file. You should then copy the directory called LeopardX to /usr/share/icons (or ~/.icons if installing for one user). Copy the directory Mac4Lin_GTK_Aqua_v0.3 to /usr/share/themes (or ~/.themes if installing for one user). The Shere_Khan_X directory should also go into /usr/share/icons or ~/.icons because it contains a cursor theme. You should then be able to use the appearance and preferences tools to change the theme.

Thanks

But now I've run into another problem, the full trash png has become corrupted, it displays perfectly in the file browser, but say it is when I try to open it in GIMP, Koluor paint, ect.
Know any one or anything that can help, or do I have or re-download it?
I don't care if it's open source or not, just virus free
P.S.- I can fully run GNOME and Compiz
