    make sure you execute the command in the folder, that contains the file libubuntulooks.so

    the command needs to be executes for each file
    like:
    $sudo cp libubuntulooks.so /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/
    $sudo cp libubuntulooks.la /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/

    but it ' tell =
    cp: cannot stat `libubuntulooks.so': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `libubuntulooks.la': No such file or directory


    i seems that the cp command does not recognize you files to be copied to engine, where did you run those commands? you must run that commands to the directory containing the files and add -p so that the permission will not change.

    you first run ls -l in the directory containing libubuntulooks.la then:

    sudo cp -rp libubuntulooks.la /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines

    then show us what you got.

    ;)

    [email protected]:~$ sudo cp -rp libubuntulooks.la /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines
    cp: cannot stat `libubuntulooks.la': No such file or directory

    i use command but can't copy like same time.
    i think because i use command wrong directory . or?
    i extract file to desktop in folder name "ubuntulooks engine"
    but when i open terminal it's like this
    [email protected]:~$
    i don't know the way correct to change directory.
    if file libuubuntulooks.la in folder it's correct or not when use command from [email protected]:~$
    if it's not correct directory how to change directory?
    tell me again :(

    To change directory, you would need the cd command (e.g. to change to a directory called "directory", type
    cd directory
    
    ). To move up one directory, type
    cd ..
    
    (that's two dots).

    You might find a graphical file browser easier to use; try typing
    konqueror
    
    at the command prompt to get one. (Then click on the little picture of a house in the toolbar to get to your home directory).
