I was aksing whether they are KDE styles, icons or window decorations. Most KDE styles and window decorations can be installed by doin ./configure, make & make install. KDE icon themes are installed using kcontrol.

XPDE is a seperate Desktop Environment from KDE (sort of like XFCE) and you need to build it using the instructions on the developers website. The other theme you downloaded requires that you run the shell scripts in the archive in order to install the various themes.
