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.

I installed xfce4 on my distro and i have downloaded some themes from xfce-look.org, but i don't know how to install and use them. Is there a common place to copy them and make the window manager to recognize them? I used KDE before and with that it was so simple to install a new theme. Can i somehow simply install a theme with xfce4 also?
How do you mean installing globally?
You mean the xfce?
We were discussing theme installation weren't we. Sorry if I wasn't clear, if you want to install xfce themes so that they are available to everyone using your system, you put them in /usr/share/themes.
I have a sneaky suspicion that the oscillation installer put XFCE in /usr/local, so the themes may have to be installed in /usr/local/share/themes but ~/.themes should have worked fine. I will try the themes you listed and let you know how it goes.
