yes, fwiw, i had difficulties extracting all the archives of this user. i had to save them first and then extract from the file manager right click menu (extract here...).
others might have to open them with root privileges, and then make sure the files have at least read only permissions for a normal user.

Hey guys,

Every now and then I run into an issue trying to install a theme, and I usually give up. But I really want to use this theme. I have installed themes before, but occasionally, I get "xxxx is not a valid theme."

I've read a lot of threads in forums and none have solved my issue.

I'm running a fresh copy of Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty).

What I've done:
1. Tried to drag the fresh downloaded file into the Appearance window.
2. Tried to drag the inner tar file into the Appearance window.
3. I copied both tar files above into ~/.themes and /usr/share/themes/
4. I tried putting the GTK folder and the metacity-1 folder in the above two folders individually - and together.
5. I tried tarring the the metacity-1 folder and putting it in the above two locations.

What am I doing wrong? I'm very comfortable with the terminal should I need to use it. However I don't understand GTK / Metacity. Which am I running? etc..

Any input would be great. Thanks!

I really like your window borders for metacity. They are truly well designed and elegant. Thank you.

Like the theme, but I think it would be a good idea to throw in a Metacity theme too. Not everyone is using Beryl you know. ;)
