I'm using Mandrake 7.2, gnome and sawfish. I've downloaded a theme aquaos2 from into ~/.sawfish/themes (still compressed). Next i went to the Gnome Configuration Tool>Sawfish Manager>Appearance and selected AquaOS2-0.19 and clicked the OK button but nothing happens. Is something wrong?

The icons on my desktop seem to be a little big and can't be renamed by rightclicking, selecting Properties and edit the filename there. Is there anyway to change their sizes smaller without adjusting my resolution as well as changing the icon'ss name?

There is an icon which looks like a shortcut (it have the arrow on the bottom right of the icon like those found on window's shortcuts). How do i create them?

There is an icon of Netscape on my panel that came with mandrake. I've downloaded Netscape 6 and wants to change that netscape icon such that it points to the new Netscape 6. Do i change the icon's command to /usr/local/netscape/./netscape ? For the previous icon pointing to the old Netscape, its command is something like /local/netscape without the "./netscape" infront. I tried leaving out "./netscape" for the new Netscape 6 but it didn't work.
What's wrong?

In the windows and kde desktop, there is a Show Desktop button that minimise all windows but i can't find any in gnome. How can i get a button like that?

any help appreciated

For Gnome themes, you will probably find your answers here:

There are themes and instructions on how to install, including packages you'll need for the themes to function properly.
