Oh, "Lipstik", a nice theme.
I installled it on my mandrke 10.1, KDE 3.2 (I think) system. These are the notes I made at the time:

make KDE pretty:
Tried the Lipstick rpm for mandrake from, but it did not work.
So I installed from source (which did!):

Get "Lipstick" style from
It's a .tar.gz file. Open it in konq, and drag the folder lipstick1.1 to /home/tg. Choose "Copy Here"
Open a terminal and cd to /home/tg/lipstick1.1
Do the following

$ ./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$ make
$ su
# make install

Now you find the style lipstick under K-System-Config-Config your desktop-Look 'n' feel-Style. Apply it.

We need nice nuvola icons. Go to Find the Nuvola icons. Download the file nuvola-1.0.tar.gz to your home directory. K-System-Configure-Configure Desktop-look n Feel-Icons-Install New Theme. It asks where from. Click the open folder to the right of the text entry area. Navigate to /home/tg. Choose Nuvola. It installs. Choose Nuvola icons. Now you can delete the nuvola.tar.gz file you downloaded.


Hope this helps.
