have you confirmed that the Album Art Downloader downloads .jpg files, names
them folder.jpg, and puts them in the corresponding album folder in your
music collection (assume you have one-folder-per-album)? This setup should
usually work 'out of the box' provided you've configured the album art
downloader correctly.
If you have a different kind of folder setup for your Music folder, you may
need to tweak the filenames of the jpgs so that rockbox can find the right
image from the audio tags.

(I'm also assuming that your 'kleen3' theme already supports albumart but of
course I haven't checked that)

I just picked up a refurb Sansa E280 and installed Rockbox 3.5.1 with the
kleen3 theme.

I would like to get album art working on this. I downloaded Album Cover Art
Downloader V1.2.6 , it runs but can't seem to get the covers to display and
not sure what I am doing wrong.

My music is in folder Music, not sure if this all needs to be in root of

This is all running on Linux and so far everything seems to run ok except
getting the art to display, prob an error on my part.

I like Rockbox, it's interesting to be able to change themes, etc.

Thanks, Mike
