To change anything related to kicker's (the panel) looks, right click on an empty space on kicker -> configure panel -> appearance.

I am not sure I get what you mean. Most KDE themes do not cause any changes in your kicker unless the theme is specifically designed to do so. You can configure your kicker seperately so that it inherits colors from the theme you are using or from images that match your theme. You can also set it up for transparency. To get an idea of what I mean take a look at my KDE screenshot.

i've seen your screenshots, and i know what you mean. the problem is that the colours change, but the style remains the same. i mean..setting a theme make the kicker changing colour but not the aspect. i hope you understand what i mean..my english is bad! thanks for the help!

English is not my first language as well. What I am trying to put across to you is that changing the kde theme does not necessarily mean that kicker will change as well. It depends on the theme itself and most themes that I have seen do not affect kicker at all. In most cases you have to theme cooker by using a background image that suites your KDE style as well as tinker with transparency and color settings.

Thats ok. If you need some kicker backgrounds, go to kde-look.org.
