Installing a new theme for Suse 9.2

I'm trying to install a new theme for KDE on Suse 9.2 and have not had much success. I went through the process of .configure, make, make install and it seemed to be working just fine. Terminal was telling me that everything got configured correctly and then I could install. So I went ahead and installed the theme with no problems. The theme installed into my home directory.

So in Suse 9.2 i went to the Control Center to load the new theme. I went to the home directory with the theme installed and was not able to find any files that Suse recognized as a theme file. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll give you guys the link to the theme I downloaded.

I'm not sure why it didn't work and give more coffee and sleep i might be able to but for the theme you want go here:

Pack Man Baghira

it's an RPM made for SuSE works great in 9.1 and is listed as working in 9.2. I love this theme and with the RPM just download it click on it and install through YaST.

After searching around on my computer, I realized I made a mistake. I was looking at the Theme Manager for a theme but there are only themes there if you save one there. Being that I didn't save a theme there, I had no theme to look at. What happens is after I compiled and installed the theme, it gave me options for the Baghira theme in the Window Decorations, the button setup and all that. So when I compiled, the theme was installed I just looked for them at the wrong place.
