There is no README to lead me so I am stuck.I downloaded fbstyles.tar.bz2 and ran;
tar -jxvf fbstyles.tar.bz2 and it unzipped to a new file styles,so I;
cd styles as root
no file or directory Thanks for any help as I would love to learn how to install these tar.bz2 and tar.gz files,david

If these are just ordinary style files, just copy them to ~/.fluxbox/styles and you should be good to go. Just a config file and maybe some pixmaps, right? No configure/compiling necessary. (If you want them global, they go in /usr/local/share/fluxbox/styles or wherever the rest of them are.
