Hi.

Don't untar them. Just point the Icon manager to the compressed file, and KDE will do all the dirty work.

Must be a badly packaged theme, or maybe a theme for an earlier KDE version. Happens all the time.

Thanks for this threat as I have been trying for the last 3 days to get this Icon theme installed with exactly the same problems. I thought it was my inexperience.
