What to Do When Emerald Theme Won't Update in Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron

My neighbor, who just installed Emerald Theme Manager under Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron Beta, encountered a bit of a problem when changing themes - the theme won't update even after restarting the system.

For Hardy Heron users out there with the same problem, here's how to solve it:

1. Goto "System" -> "Preferences" -> "Sessions"

2. Click the "Add" button located on the right

3. A dialog box will appear. Enter the following data:
Name: Emerald
Command: emerald --replace
Comment: [you can leave this entry blank]

4. Restart the computer

Also, you may notice that Emerald themes are no longer available in Ubuntu Hardy Heron's repositories. You can download additional Emerald themes here.
