To install the latest Orta 1.0, download it from DeviantArt, extract the .zip and you should find a new archive called "extractme" - extract this too and then double click the "OrtaSettingsManager.py" file. If you have an older Orta theme version installed, firstly click the "Uninstall" button, then click "Install". Once the theme has been successfully installed, you can tweak it further using OrtaSettingsManager.py (modify the tabs, scrollbars and so on) - remember to click the "Save" button when you're done and then re-apply the theme from the Appearance dialog.

As usual, inside the downloaded archive you'll also find some goodies like 2 Emerald themes, 2 AWN themes, a Chrome theme and 5 different Chrome scrollbars.
