Themes Problem


I'm trying to install a new theme in Debian 3.1. If I for example download this theme
gnome-look.org xxx xxx xxx (not allowed to post url)

And starts Program,Desktop Settings,Themes and select Install Theme. Then I select browse and the downloaded file and Install. I would then expect the theme to appear in the listbox but it does not. I have noticed that the theme is stored in MyUserDirectory/.themes. I have also tried restarting and installing with the root user but no luck.

Not all themes are designed to show up in the main window of Theme Preferences (Applications > Desktop Preferences > Theme). Click on the 'Theme Details' button and scroll down the Controls and Window Borders tabs to see if it appears in those modules.

Thanks for your reply but I have tried a few with the same result and I think they look like complete themes. If you have a specific theme that you know works post a link and I will try it.
