Question KDE help

Hello,To all

Well a new Suse 9.0 user here need your help please.

i am trying to use a new icon theme doing it like this

# Open the KDE-Menu and start the Control Center
# Click on "Look and Feel" and "Icons"
# Browse to the location of the new icon theme by clicking the small folder button
# Click on "Install New Theme" to add the new icons
# Click "Apply"

"Look and Feel" is it some type of option that i can add?????

In theory, you should have (well, may have) a KDE control centre icon on your task bar. If you click that, you should (in theory) have a kde menu on the left which has a selectable "look and feel" option.

That's where you'd usually find the visual options for your desktop.

It could be labeled as "Appearance and Themes", instead of "Look and Feel".
