Changing the Look and Feel in Control Center


(I'm pushing that saying...The only dumb question is the one never asked....)

I saw this dandy link to change the look of my desktop and spicer her up a bit. http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=10866
Here is the install...

How to install a theme/style


Install the Theme/Style by either extracting and compiling it, or installing an RPM.
Open the KDE-Menu and start the Control Center.
Select "Look and Feel".
Select "Style" if the package you installed was a style, or select "Theme Manager" if the package you installed was a theme.
Select your theme or style.
Click "Apply"
Have fun! :-)


So I got to the Look and Feel but I don't know if it is a Theme or Style? I tried to add it but I was looking for the name of of it but it wasn't in the list in Theme/Style.

Not sure where to go from here.

it is downloaded as a rpm so just try
rpm -ivh 10866-thinkeramik-3.0.2-1mdk.i386.rpm
and then try going to the control center and look and feel. Check and see if that does the trick. Actually, on mandrake it may be
urpmi -ivh 10866-thinkeramik-3.0.2-1mdk.i386.rpm.
not too sure about that one

try going to rpmseek or google and finding what supplies those files. they are prob devel files. and just start installing them. I don't recall mandrakes package manager but it is likely that the needed files are in there.
