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.

(i still wonder why i post here)

- go to freshmeat.net
- search for wmtheme
- click on the first project & download it
- go to a console
- untar & unzip wmtheme
- read the README file

now you are ready to install easily themes on every wm.
