Angry KDE 3 Themes

I downloaded some themes from and they won't install. I go to Control Panel -> Look and Feel -> Themes -> Add and I select the theme tarball. It says there is no .themerc file. So I unpack it, and there is an "" file. So I run it, and it says it installs, but it still isnt there. So, I look around the folders, and find some .themerc files. I go back to the Themes program, go to Add, and go to the unpacked .themerc. But it doesnt show!

when you unpack the tarball, there should be specific installation instructions for that theme.....

Debian Woody 3.01
KDE 3.0.5a
Linux 2.4.18-686

I am having the exact same problem as JoeLinux and cannot find help anywhere. After upgrading to KDE3 from KDE2 the theme manager won't install or change themes. When I try selecting a theme an error appears that says "Theme does not contain a .theme nor a .themerc file". The themes all do in fact contain .themerc files. I've downloaded some themes other than the preinstalled ones to see of they work any better and I get the same error (even when I follow the installation instructions correctly). I've looked at various config files to see if there is something improperly configured, but I haven't found anything so far. This is not a big deal, but I would like to have the ability to configure KDE to the fullest extent (which is one reason I use it). Thanks for any help.
