::Linux Themes!::

I just got my cool new theme from and I copied the "theme.tar.gz" my home directory... Then I went into Preferences > Theme, there lied some default themes... Now I clicked 'Install new theme...' then found my them, and installed it. It looked like it loaded everything just fine... But them after it was done... I have no clue what to do now!? Where is my new theme? It isn't in the list of themes... I click on 'Go to theme folder' and there is my them in a folder there!? But how do I get it to show up on my computer?? It's probley something simple, but I appreciate the help...
