please please help help me me!!!

Im trying to install themes for fluxbox, I have to put the style files in the style directories.. Of course this sounds easy but I cant access the directory cause the parent directory(i think thats what its called) is hidden.. Its .fluxbox.. I put the themes in the right places but it still isnt showing in the style menu.... I dont know what to do or how to do anything, IF Anyone could help me I would appreciate it. Im really new to this and still learning. thanks alot.

if u have your styles in .fluxbox/styles then u just have to do this:

cp /path/to/stype /path/to/.fluxbox/styles

i know in gentoo the path to styles for fluxbox is /usr/share/commonbox/styles
not sure about a .fluxbox directory or file, im in the process of trying to even get into fluxbox right now.

also in the future, please use subjects that mean something. like:

Fluxbox styles

or something like that "help help please help" doesnt give any clue as to what the issue is and may cause some people to not even bother reading the post.
