RedHat 9 Theme Issues

I found a post on here a couple of weeks ago about installing icons in RH9 and gnome but I can't find the post again, so I'm hoping someone here can help me.

What the problem is, is that I can't install icons from the Theme applet. It acts like it's installing the theme but it's not there.

Any suggestions?

Here's a follow up to my own post.

I looked in the .themes folder in my home folder and I see the icons I'm trying to install listed there, but it's not showing up in the theme applet. Is there a way to specify an icon theme from the command line? Or how do I make the installed icon package show up in the theme applet?

I always do it this way .......

- open a terminal
- go to the the directory of the iconfile
- as root , type " tar xvzf iconfile -C /usr/share/icons/ "
if the file is in bzip2 format , use xvjf .... " tar xvjf iconfile -C /usr/share/icons/

if u do that way, another user can use the icon theme also.

Change the destination path if u want to install a new theme ( control & window border ), for example : " tar xvzf themefile -C /usr/share/themes/ "

hope it helps !!!
