Trouble Installing themes, XUbuntu 6.06

Hey, i've got a fully updated XUbuntu. All repositories open, all updated, all dist-upgraded. I found a theme that I thought was cool, and downloaded it (Because I didn't have it default, and couldn't find with apt-get, or Synaptic), but now I don't know how to install it. Rather, where I put all the files to be read by the "User Interface Settings".

Anyone out there have the answer to my problems?

No need to untar the theme file. Just open the theme manager, select install theme, select the theme file, and you have it.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Closed the original since the dupe
had more responses and was in the better suited forum.
