Hi, no double posting in the forum . Anyway a style theme, extract the tarball then do
Code:
$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$make
#make install
If its an icon theme then you can install it from the appropriate section under "appearance & themes" in kcontrol.

I've tried downloading themes, but no luck using them. For example, http://themes.freshmeat.net/projects/alpha__/
it only contains a script and another tarball. No instruction on how to use, but no files to ./config or make. Does anyone know if theres instructions anywhere for these?
