You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After manually installing a theme, if one were to delete that theme and
re-install the same theme after, the following message is produced:

"Installation for theme <theme> failed. Can't move directory over

The reason for this is that the residual theme data in the ~/.themes/
folder is not deleted upon theme deletion through Gnome-appearance-
settings, and does not permit the user to install the theme again.

This affects Jaunty, but has also affected Intrepid, Hardy, and possibly
even further back as well.
