    KthemeManager 0.4 Install help

    k we all have found out now that KDE 3.2 (for some reason we have yet to find) has FORGOT to put in a Theme Manager for Mandrake, i was looking for a theme manager and this is the one i found,

    i downloaded, untared ./configure make and make install

    EVERY THING, either there was a complication some where with no output because i saw no error or im just plain dumb

    i cant find the path to the run command lol
    ive searched high and low in my /usr/bin
    and ive updated my box like 6 times and ls *theme* find *theme* find *ktheme*
    (you get the picture?)
    does ne one have KThemeManager 0.4, so they can give me the path, cuz i lost it some how,

    if not some one give me instructions on how top find and uninstall it so i can recompile it to see if there was any errors ive missed

    Generally .tar.gz, etc files should have an INSTALL and/or README file which will provide relevant information about installation and usage.

    According to the INSTALL file that is in the package i have just downloaded from

    Installation Names

    By default, `make install' will install the package's files in
    `/usr/local/kde/lib', etc. You can specify an
    installation prefix other than `/usr/local/kde' by giving `configure'
    the option `--prefix=PATH'.

    You can specify separate installation prefixes for
    architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files. If you
    give `configure' the option `--exec-prefix=PATH', the package will use
    PATH as the prefix for installing programs and libraries.
    Documentation and other data files will still use the regular prefix.

    If the package supports it, you can cause programs to be installed
    with an extra prefix or suffix on their names by giving `configure' the
    option `--program-prefix=PREFIX' or `--program-suffix=SUFFIX
    The important bit has been bolded. you need to look in /usr/local/kde/bin for whatever you need to execute.

    I did try a ./configure to find out what the binary would be called, but i dont have the required libaries and dont really want to install them.

    If you do find out the binary name please post
