if you download it from they usually tell you how and where to install it in the README or INSTALL files, or maybe from the page you downloaded it to. unless youve installed KDE to somewhere other than the default, you should be fine for most without having to specify where to install. by default itll be under /opt/kde/

Not on all distros. /usr is used by quite a lot of distros to for KDE stuff.

Most window decorations have to be compiled from source and to make sure everything is put in the right place, you do
$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
#make install
