    Run the following code in a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager emerald
    An "Emerald Theme Manager" entry should come up under the System->Preferences menu, and you can install and manage multiple themes from there.

    You have to enable the effects. To do this, go to System->Preferences->Appearances. Open the "Effects" tab, and set it to "Custom". After that, reopen "Emerald Theme Manager" and try to reapply the theme.

    Also, play around with "Advanced Desktop effects settings" to get some real cool things going on (Desktop cube and the like).

    Did you use the manager to import the theme? It won't show up until you do that.

    Actually on some setups the themes activate when you click them in the Emewrald Theme MAnager, but on others you need to run "emerald --replace" to reload Emerald before the theme is activated.. This far I haven't found out the reason for this..

    So, try running "emerald --replace" after selecting the theme you want.
