i'm running redhat9. so i downloaded ximian desktop 2 the other day (absolutely beautiful - i recommend it). i then downloaded this package called gnome-themes-extras with some cool themes.

i think i installed them incorrectly because whenever i select a theme, i get some web browser error and none of the icons on the desktop are themed. any ideas?

IIRC gnome-themes extra installs itself in /usr/local/share/themes & /usr/local/share/icons, while the browser expects them in /usr/share/themes & /usr/share/icons. Just copy the files and you should be set
