im running regular ubuntu 7.04 (i dont know how to make that more specific)
. im not running KDE, XFCE, or any other fancy stuff. im running Gnome.

the theme im trying to install (from is titled "orange-xmms"

it downloads as a tarball

every time i go to load it into the gnome theme thing (system > 
preferences > Theme), it tells me that the file format is invalid.

WHY is it telling me that???!!!!??!
