Question How can I change theme in debian sweezy ( Black window panels desired )

Kubuntu had a tool in system utilities to personalize even the most specific thing of KDE UI.

Debian seems not to have. Do I have to download an entire new theme to replace ?

I would like Black or dark-gray window panels instead for these white-almost. To be easier for the eyes.

How can I change theme in Debian Wheezy ?
You can also easily install KDE 4 :

# apt-get install kdm kde-standard
.. And then say yes to the 'kdm' login window, when asked.

Next time at login, you can select "KDE ..." in the "Login Menu".
