reinstalling a package
Hello, I have a question. I have removed the blackbox-0.65.0 package so I could install the 0.70.0 beta version. However, I did not like it as much, so I removed it, but now I am having trouble reinstalling the 0.65.0 package, namely, where is it? I did an slocate for it, found it in removed_packages, but it cant install from that file, it isnt a .tgz file. I originally had blackbox installed from the install cd, do I have to run the repair disk to get it back, or is it hidden away somewhere on my computer? I tried just downloading it from the blackbox site, but it is in a .tar.gz file. I ran the configure for it, then the make, but the make failed.

Thank you :)

Does anyone know any good sites for blackbox themes?

ok, I am having problems installing styles. I put the style in usr/X11R6/shared/blackbox/styles/ but it doesnt work. The background doesnt change, and the bars just turn to white blocks with no text, color, design, anything.....I have bb4win on my windows box, and I have never had this problem, only on this box(slackware).
