trouble with aquaX theme (gtk)

I can not get all of the parts of the aquaX theme (aquaX GTK 2) to work. I got the theme from

I'm using gnome and the theme preferences program. I have been following the instructions shown on the freashmeat site for installing themes. The only part of the theme that gets installed is the controlls. There's no window boarders or icons.

What am I doing wrong? in many of the screen shots of the theme that I see, I see that there are beautiful window boarders etc. That's what I want.

A Gtk theme is only yhe widgets that Gtk draws. Window borders and icons are a completely seperate beast so you'll have to find thos versions of the theme as well. If it's an OSX clone (which it sounds like) there are plenty available
