I just downloaded a Beryl Emerald Theme from gnome-look, and I want to install it, but its a .bin file and I dont know how to do it. Can someone help me install it please. Thanks.

I'm not sure why it's in .bin format.

Firstly, can you link me to the file you downloaded?

Secondly, try opening the .bin file with file-roller (or Archive Manager; same thing) and if you don't get an error message, extract it to ~ .emerald/themes.

Alternatively, open up emerald-theme-manager, click the, "Import", button and choose the downloaded .bin.
