Hmmm, I was having similar problems... well, I fixed when using the rpm version. I know, I don't like it this way either, but hey, It worked

is it a `theme' or `appearance'? i downloaded a theme and found out it wasn't a theme, but an appearance. try extracting the file under /usr/share/sawfish/x.x.x/themes/ and if that doesn't work, at the ./configure like do:

./configure --prefix=/usr/share/sawfish/x.x.x/themes/
make
make install


hope that helps!

It's been awhile since I installed the liquid theme but I remember I had the same problem under RedHat...it has to do with the fact that the install puts the files in the standard KDE directory structure which RedHat (at least 7.3) does not use. I solved this by looking at where the install put the files and then compared it with where my other themes were. All I had to do was symlink (or copy) the liquid files into the correct directories and it worked!

i figured it out finally... the ./configure was putting files in the wrong place, so i did ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 instead of just ./configure. thank you for the link though.
