xfce themes

This might sound silly, but how the heck do you install new xfce themes?

I downloaded one, stuck it in ~/.themes, and went to User Interface in the settings, and i can't see it. I also stuck it in /usr/share/xfce4/eyes/themes, same luck..

EDIT: I'm particularely talking about this one

you can have a look at

XFCE themes are managed through the xfskin program. After you've downloaded a theme, type "xfskin &", navigate to the "file --> add" menu item, point the file selector to the tarball, and click "install". xfskin can also be used to create and delete themes.
