Re: GNOME theme installation

Well, I untarred the new theme to ~/.themes. It shows up as an option in metacity-setup, but when I select it, nothing happens. When I try installing a new theme right from metacity-setup, it never comes up on the themes list.

Why is this happenning?

For metacity themes:
Metacity themes should be untarred to ~/.themes for metacity 2.4.x.
from http://art.gnome.org/faq.php#8

Alternatively, try using the metacity-setup program to install the themes
(currently only in unstable).
