      Hi,
      same for me, Ubuntu 7.10 on Dell Laptop. I'm using Unbuntu in french, so the message is in fr !

       
    • Folks, can you PLEASE give the name of the file you are trying to install? Coz the one you download from the download page needs to be extracted first. That is NOT the file to be installed from Appearances!

        Yes !!! You're right, I made a mistake the first time, the file to use is in the sub folder 'GTK Metacity Theme', thanks for your reply

         
    • The first question is, which file are you trying to install and thru what menu? If you can give more details, I maybe able to find the cause of the problem and help you out.

      Sorry for the late reply. Am a bit busy these dayz.
