Blackbox themes help

I'v been surfing the net for good desktop themes in Mandrake 9.2 Blackbox. Off the

website freshmeat I have downloaded a few themes.

I get them uninstalled fine. Then I move them into /usr/share/blackbox/styles

Then when I right click on my desktop go to Settings - Styles the files show up their but

when I choose the theme I do not get the background picture. I do however get the menu

and stuff just not the background picture...Can anyone help??

Check what program is specified in the styles as the background-setter. It's often, say, Esetroot and, if you don't have that, you either need to modify the theme to something you do have or need to get Esetroot.

It's possible the perms on the background pix are wrong, but I doubt it.

-- Oh, incidentally - if you don't need these themes available to other users, you can install them in your home directory. Even if you do, you can copy them there. Easier to edit that way.
