Hi people, I've not long installed Linux Red Hat 9 on my machine ( 4hrs 53 mins) to be exact, and I have seen a new menu I like the look of in the theme section, but I have had a look around for themes for Red Hat 9 which currently runs gnome but can not find any. Can someone please tell me a site where i can get free themes and please tell me how to install them please. Thanks in advance....
I am having difficulty installing themes in gnome. I am running redhat 9 and I downloaded 4 different themese and try to click on the install theme button and select the tar.gz file that I downloaded but it doesnt appear in the list. I can browse to my .themes folder and I see the folders in there but I cant seem to select them. Can someone please help?
I connect using kppp, in KDE. The only page I have ever managed to bring up as been google, and thats it. I checked my resolv.conf file and thats got the 2 DNS's in as they should be. It also disconnects me every 2 minutes
what do pings and traceroutes tell you? Can you ping a site or IP address for more than 2 minutes? Is kppp for a PPPoE DSL connection? If so, do you connect through a router that interfaces with your dsl modem?
