For many themes, it's easier to untar then into ~/.themes. That way you
know it's not a permissions thing (that is what the Install Theme button
does in the control center).
What themes don't work? Read any readmes to see if they requires
engines that you do not have - ThinIce for example is a seperate package
but I'm not sure if Xenophobia is packaged at all. What the console
from where you started X to see if any error messages are produced when
switching themes - this will say if you are missing a theme engine
("cannot load libthinice.so" means ThinIce is missing).
