GSb and MAc4 lin theme


Hello,

I'm now trying gsb as Window manager.
Im running slackware 12.2 now.

I try to follow this tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/mac4lin_ma...ook_like_a_mac

I have now installed the metacity theme.
But if i want to install the icon theme I get a "can't move directory over directory" error message.

I have googled for it and google say to delete the file in the themes directory.
But there is no maclin-icon file/directory. Only mac4lin aqua file/directory.

Who knows how to solve this ?

GSB includes the Mac4Lin icon theme.

Its files are in /usr/share/icons. Normally, GNOME's theme installation dialog box will install to ~/.themes and ~/.icons. Therefore, there should be not be a conflict even if you try to install an icon theme that GSB already has. Are you running GSB as root?
