Get themes from www.kde-look.org
The karamba program will give you an osX-like bar.

Go to kde control centre, look and feel, behaviour. You can add a Macos bar to the top.

KDE dir?
KDE Control Center -> run 'kcontrol' or look for it in menu.
SuperKaramba: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/?pa...d+SuperKaramba
KDE settings directory: [your home]/.kde or [your home]/.kde3

Ok, on this one you'll have to open up a command line and browse to this folder. Then do the following:

1. type 'cd window-decor'
2. do './configure' with --prefix=/your/kde/dir if you have to specify your kde directory.
3. next, type 'make' and there will be a bunch of things go by. This part may take some time depending on the speed of your computer overall.
4. after make is done, type 'su' and then your root password. Once you are root, type 'make install'
5. open up control center and go to 'look and feel > window decorations' where you can choose 'acqua' for your title bar.


this is a part of file how-to from theme/style pack.

im interested in.. what means the marked text ?
/your/kde/dir/

runing ./configure --prefix=/root/.kde/

In Slack, the kde dir is /opt/kde . Try it without the 'prefix' option, and look for the directory in RH if that does not work (maybe it is /usr?).

Try it with the option. If KDE is in /usr, it will be buried among the other programs and hard to see.

Qt a gui library that KDE and many other programs use. Qt usually comes with KDE, and therefore is often in the same directory.
