ok, i'm kind of a newbie to GNOME, i've been using KDE and i thought GNOME 2.2.2 looked really nice so i thought i would give it a try. the problem i'm having is i don't know how to install themes. i searched for it on here and i didn't find anything that really helped me, so i thought i would ask, how do you install a gtk theme?
Installing GTK 1.2 themes is just a case of clicking the "Install new theme..." button in the Theme Selector page of the Gnome Control Centre and selecting the theme file you downloaded. If this fails to make the theme appear in the list of Available themes, try using the terminal to change directory to ~/.themes and run tar to unpack your theme there. For example, for the America theme: cd ~/.themes && tar zxf /America.tar.gz Replacing with the actual path to the downloaded file. You can of course use a gui program like file-roller to unpack your themes to the directory if you want.
How do I install GTK2 Themes?
GTK2 themes can be installed using the "Theme" program available from the menu, (Applications -> Desktop Preferences -> Theme). Downloaded themes can be dragged and dropped into the main program window, and then selected in the list.
I'm use GTK1.2, I downloaded some themes for this version (freshmeant.net) , and tried to install them based on DrOzz' instructions but neither worked. I understand that the two versions are not compatible, right?
