The way that I did it was to navigate to Computer|System
Configuration|Login Screen Setup.<br>
There I selected the Graphical Greeter tab and clicked on Install New
I then broswed to the compressed file that contained the theme I wanted
to install and clicked Install.<br>
The new theme then showed up in the list of available themes.<br>
I hope this helps<br>

Just wondering if that is really the case or if I am missing something.
I haven't tried that specifically, but it may just be something that
you normally need to do as root. Try putting "sudo" in front of the
command you're using now. It will prompt you for your password before
it does anything.
If you're trying to do it via a GUI, I don't have a clue. (man, I
never thought I'd say that). :)
