KDE 3.2 themes

Where can I find KDE 3.2 themes?

How do I install these themes, I don't see the Theme manager in the control center.

As a fellow newbie who's just done this...

There are good how-to instructions on, but a lot of the files and apps that people have uploaded are not necessarily set up to be newbie-friendly, some of the README instructions have just left me more confused. I've had many that I can't get to work for unknown reasons, and others that worked flawlessly. There has been a lot of folder shuffling and path tweaking to do in some cases.

There are plenty there that I've had first time success with though, fun stuff!

A lot of wonderful themes there, plus icons, wallpapers, sounds, everything to make your KDE ultra-cool!

Most themes are extremely easy to install. Some come as a package for your distro. If you find one you like on, search the name of the theme and you will very likely find a package for your distro. On most others all you do is type (in a terminal):
./configure (may be config, may not have a configure shell script)
make install
And you set the style from the control center.

KDE 3.2 doesn't have a theme manager, I believe 3.3 will. 3.1 did, and they should have kept it!!!
