right click on a window border and choose settings... when settings menu appears click on the scrol down box where the window style names appear there you should find Crystal GL

Computer, I have not installed themes with Yast. There is a utility in the KDE Theme manager for installing new themes. It is in the same place you went to click the "Get New Themes" link. Select "Install New Theme" and maneuver to the package you downloaded.

Please tell us if this works.
