    Re: HOWTO: install new icon-themes?

    ndeed. All archives are extracted to .themes. The theme-dialog doesn't check if the package contains an icon, gtk or metacity theme.
    So if I have it installed in ~.themes and ~.icons and I don't see the iconset in the themes managers, then something is wrong?

    I am used to the kde way of seeing what I am selecting, so I may need a lesson in how to on this one.

    I installed my icon themes in Gutsy without using the shell. In System -> Preferences -> Appearance, select "Install..." in the Themes tab. Select the .tar file containing the icon theme and select Apply if you're so inclined.

    This thread was done back in 2004, when this functionality wasn't available.

    I tried following the first directions, but could not find the Computer -> Desktop Preferences place, so I kept reading and using an adaptation of elgilicious's post, I managed to get them working. I used, System -> Preferences -> Appearance, then selecting the theme that I wanted to use. Then I hit "Customize -> Icons" and presto, there was the icons that I had wanted. Hopefully this helps someone.

    [Edit]
    Download the Icon file, double click it to extract the files.
    Computer -> Home-> View -> Show Hidden Files
    Copy or move the extracted icon folder to the .icons folder
    Computer -> Desktop Preferences -> Theme -> Theme Details -> Icon Tab -> Select the Icon package just installed.
    I dont get it. under my .icons i got to apps and all icons are there but ubuntu won't use it. how do i use them. do i have to extract the folder and paste it as it is under .icons? and then go to theme and customize and go to icons and choose that folder ? thats confusing
