Hi,

Inside the ../Skin dir you can do 2 things:

1) create a directory called default and copy the content from the Blue theme into the newly created default directory.

or

2) create a directory called Blue (with content of Blue theme) and point default towards it by creating a link: ln -s Blue default

After option 2 a listing from ../Skin will look like this:
Code:
Skin $ ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Dec 23  2006 Blue
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    4 Jun  2 22:24 default -> Blue
Hope this helps.
