Do you want to do this for KDE, Gnome or another environment? What exactly do you want this theme to be - just a new wallpaper, wallpaper + icons, and so on.

To begin with: http://gnome-look.org/kb/Any+sites+o...s%3F/?kbid=574 and http://gnome-look.org/kb?PHPSESSID=d...348eb5c13601fb and http://kde-look.org/kb?filter-type=1...&filter=Search are good places to start.

Welcome to LQ.

There's no such thing as a desktop environment theme.

There are window manager themes (GNOME uses Metacity, KDE uses KWin), widget toolkit themes (GNOME uses GTK+, KDE uses Qt), and icon themes.
