Themes: KDE - GNOME desktop themes trouble.

Hello all my friendly Linux Questions . org community!

Is it possible to use the "Clearlooks" theme of Gnome, on my KDE?

I really like it, but I can't seem to use it.

If it's not possible to use the "Clearlooks" theme, then how do I reset my theme so it uses the default theme when you first installed KDE?

It's called BlueCurve but the KDE theme manager won't let me choose the file and use it.

I'm using Fedora Core 5.

Much appreciation in advance,

If you mean an actual gnome theme files, you can't do it (at least very easily). If you mean a KDE theme that looks like Clearlooks, a good place to look for themes is at There seems to be a couple different ones that come up when I did a search.

I don't know what's going on with the BlueCurve theme. Is it just that particular theme that doesn't work? One thought is to download the theme again and reinstall, maybe some file got messed up or deleted somehow?
