well go to rpmfind.net and get the packages you need... i.e. kde, openssl and a bunch of others

at the bash prompt do
`updatedb´
and then run a ´locate´ command
follwed by parts of the filenames in the missings deps list.
if it comes up with any file even slightly resembling the files in your list,
then you already have these files, and I´m assuming you have these files because you you´re trying to install a kde theme, so youmust have kde already.

so I suggest you do a classic ´rpm -i --nodeps your-file.rpm´
followed by ´ldconfig´ and you should be sorted.

Well yeah, that's what Daperp was saying. So follow his instructions, and you should be ok. It looks like maybe you are installing in a GUI? If so use a package manager like kpackage. Open up your terminal (the icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like an old fashioned monochrom monitor) and type 'kpackage' and wait. After a moment kpackage should start. Now click the icon that looks like a folder being opened and locate the .rpm file you downloaded.

Select it. Now kpackage will open a new screen with the name of the package you are installing. UNCHECK the box that says 'check dependencies' and then click install. If you run into more problems, let me know.

The part he is referring to where he says a 'classic rpm...' that means where you type kpackage, type 'rpm -i --nodeps <filename>.rpm' (replace <filename> with your filename). Then when it's finished, type 'ldconfig' at the same prompt.

Do NOT type the ' marks, those are just to separate input from my sentences.

What version of KDE are you using? Maybe your KDE is too old? Just a thought...

get into console mode (dont be frightened it wont bite you!)
and run ´updatedb´
(type it and push enter)
when it´s done (it takes a while)
type
´locate libkdeui | grep so´
if it comes up with a file with a name similar to the file
it´s complaining about but with a different number at the end,
then you need to symlink the file you file you found (if it´s newer)
to the file the theme is missing.
symlink as follows:
´ln -s /location/of/found-file /location/of/file-missing´
replacing the dir names and filenames with the appropraiate names.

If you dont understand this or it doesnt work you need to search freshmeat for for ´libkdeui´or something along those lines.

Peace

Edit: BTW, did you run ldconfig as instructed? this is one of the fundamental essentials and basics you need to know and learn in order to properly install new software on linux
