Wish you were here:

View Point:

New to themes? create a folder, in your home directory ~/.themes
for example mine is /home/justus/.themes
the dot before themes means it is hidden and linked to /usr/share/themes
Can not find it? go to your file menubar, click View, click Show Hidden
Now, download your chosen theme, right click the downloaded file,
chose extract here, grab the extracted file and drop in your .themes folder.
Then open up your favorite appearance manager and select the newly installed
There are other ways to install themes but this is the best way!
It allows you to control or change parts of the theme without
going to root and possibly doing some harm to your file system.

You may also consider creating a folder called ~/.icons
where you can place downloaded icon themes and mouse cursor themes

And another folder callled ~/.fonts
where you can place downloaded fonts

Doesn't it have a window border in Gnome 2 or the theme didn't installed well on my PC? It would be nice to export that window border from screenshots to Gnome 2.

there is no metacity theme included.
I do not have metacity installed and no way to
test it.

My hat comes off to all metacity themers,

and you will see what I mean.

I can point you to a metacity customizer website
that looks promising. It lets you pick various
options, including colors,borders,etc. to make
your own metacity theme.

If you make a theme you are happy with, please
share it with us.

The Xfce window manager theme (xfwm) is the
window border shown in the screenshots.
It is a port of Iceberg icewm theme, created by
Stefan Mairhofer (modified by AlienX)
further modified by me to fit xfwm parameters with some additional
changes to coincide with Sea2Sky theme.

You can get the colors and button look from
the xfwm4 folder. Gimp and gcolor2 may also be
a help.

thanks for comment, vote and fan.

I hope this helps
