Hi, xpde is not a theme its a desktop environment. After you installed it as root run ./ as user in the untared xpde folder , then copy xinitrcDEFAUT to your home directory and rename it to .xinitrc , then restart x. There a bit more to it if your using rh/fedora, but its all in the install file.

hope this helps u.
