installing tar.bz2 styles for fluxbox


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
./configure
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
P.S the styles are for fluxbox and I'm on fedora core

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.
