I've been surfing around looking for a new theme for my desktop, but I'm experiencing some confusion. I can not enable desktop effects, so I'm not sure which themes will work and there seem to be a lot of categories out there. Also not having effects, there is no need for avant or emerald is there?

Thanks much
myst

I get most of my themes here > http://www.gnome-look.org/ just pick a theme you like under GTK 2.x Then download the theme tar.gz to your desktop
Open change desktop background, and choose the theme tab. Drag and drop the new theme you just downloaded into the theme window.

That's right, but you can still use Metacity themes, GTK themes (as already mentioned) and icon themes, as well as GDM themes for the login window.
