I want to install a theme and I am having no luck.
I downloaded a theme and then I did

gzip -d filename.tar.gz


tar xvf filename.tar

it made two directories backgrounds and styles and also a file with an lsm extension.

not sure how to procede.

need help please

well I am using gnome, but the problem is that when I unziped and untared this file it created many files and other directories. The question is "what is the type or file extension that I am looking for?" What file do I select when I browse from my theme manager?
