Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know about that. I'm talking about configuring it. It's not so much a theme but a configurable theme engine that you can make look like anything you want. And the only way to get to it is to click the "Configure" button in KDE's theme selector.
I have the impression that for obtain what you want you should make change on the source code of the package.
But i don't think is an easy task.
Because, if i'm right, you should develop that part from yourself.
The only frontend to configure QtCurve is the one for systemsettings (previously kcontrol, in kde 3.x), so, unless you are willing to write the config files yourself (and don't ask me "how") you are out of luck. You could of course create a set of previous configs, or just use the themes that qtcurve ships by default and use them as examples (then adjust them by hand...).
The only nice "solution" is to keep systemsettings installed on your system, that of course will require kdelibs and some extra packages.
Are you installing from repositories or source? You could diff your system file structure upon install and figure out what binaries come with it (I can elaborate). Once you know the command you can run with it.
Also if you have something like synaptic installed it tells you what files are installed by packages from the properties dialog.
If you're on a debian base you can use
dpkg -L package-name | grep bin
To see the binaries possibly installed. Remove grep for possible alternate locations of binaries.
