Make Metacity load!

I can't get the Metacity theme manager to load. I don't know very much about themes and such, but the screenshot should be very helpful in what's going on. I'm using Fedora 8, in GNOME.

I'm trying to hit the big "Themes" button but it's not working. Is there a package that I'm missing or something? I installed everything Add/Remove programs had with Metacity in it.

I made the question 500 points because there's likely to be some back-and-forth on this.

I'm not a master in Linux desktop, but you may try:
yum install heliodor

May be then your button would work.

I was going to try this, but then I found some cookies. Oh well.
