fluxbox with slack 9.0

Hey. I got FluxBox installed on a slack 9.0 machine and I have a problem. I have downloaded/extracted a custom theme for it and I don't know how to activate it. The current theme is plain and boring, and I can't figure out how to change it to this theme. Please help! The docs were of no help either!

Thanks in advance for any help
