Hi batlinbob,

There are many helpful forum members, but it is better to use a meaningful title and to give some background such as which Puppy you are using.

Help is not always lightning quick, but it usually happens.

My regards

Themes for Gtk? JWM? OpenBox?
Gtk and OpenBox themes path is /usr/share/themes (using a dir for each one).
You should copy the theme folder into that path if its for Gtk or OpenBox.
The JWM issue its different, the path is: /root/.jwm/themes (note the "." which make it 'hide') and NO directory its used -check the installed ones-. If you put a new theme there (and if its working), you should see it on the 'JWM configuration'.

Regards.
