Ok, so I actually went ahead and downloaded the entire library of
skins(just to see what they have) and went and copied it to
the .gkrellm/themes folder...  I then just extracted the entire folder
and got a folder named gkrellm skins.  In it were just 200 more tar
files for each skin.  When I picked a skin to extract, it made a folder
for the skins name, and just had little pictures of icons in it.  When I
tried to configure the themes in gkrellm config window, it said that I
had no skin options available besides the default ones... Am I missing a
step or doing something wrong?  I even tried to make the link go to the
exact directory where the invisible skin is.  but nothing is working, I
tried closing gkrellm and starting it anew as well.....
