Tips & Trix: Installing a new Theme - 08/24/03 03:46 AM

Yeh, I know it's pretty basic, but hey, we have newbs.

Quote:
First, untar the theme (you wont always have to do this, all depends on your distro).
tar xzvf [theme].tar.gz

Second, tell your xwin manager to use the theme.
Gnome under RH: Red Hat > Preferances > Theme > Install Theme; Now locate the theme that you downloaded and click on install.

If it doesn't show the theme that you've downloaded try using the details option.
