Maybe what ur trying is not theme, just splash screen and background wallpaper. Same happened with me.

You'll need to edit /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc file and


And one more option will be commented, to enable theme. Uncomment it and allow to use theme. That's how you install theme.

Actually the real theme, whole theme will have .kth file and Theme Manager will detect and install that theme. So be sure what you've got is theme.
