  1. I followed the instructions, double-clicked the rmskin file and was presented with a folder listing with several other files in it, none of them executable. No new selection appears in the themes list. Did I download the wrong file or something? If this is the right file, there are no further instructions, and no clue as to how to make this a theme. Am I missing something here?
