Oh, Im sorry. I guess I didnt make it very clear what my problem was.
I found the grkellm/themes folder(it was hidden, but I got to it), and I
copied the tarball to the folder. Then I opened the folder and
extracted it. It then just created a folder in the themes folder(named
gkrellmskins) but when I try to open any of the themes, they are still
tar files. So I extract them using the app manager, but they dont show
up in the gkrellm manager. It shows the skins folder, but says there
are no skins to choose from. Does this help clarify the problem?
Thanks again for the help,
