I'm trying to install news themes into my desktop


Hi
How do I install new themes into my desktop? I'm using Fedora and I right clicked on the desktop, clicked on theme, then clicked on get more themes on-line. I picked out three of them, and now I have no idea on how to install them.
Thank you.

Assuming you are using Fedora 15, this might help:

Is the theme in an archive (such as .tar.gz)?

If so, extract it into ".themes" (notice the dot) in your home directory (for single-user installation), or /usr/share/themes (for system-wide installation).
