View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I install metacity themes?

I have found several MetaCity themes, but I can't install them. I have even found some from the site that the appearance preferences redirects me to, but when I try to install them from said appearance preferences, it says that it is an invalid format. ?!?

Please post the Ubuntu version or search for instructions for the version you are using. Most Metacity themes won't work on any version after 11.04 because the are for Gnome 2.xx.

If I remember some themes used to have different types of themes in the downloaded archive.
eg it may contain a metacity theme and an emerald theme.
Extract the download to see what's in it.
Then you should be able to drop the metacity them in Appearances.

A link to the theme would help to explain better.
