    KDE Theme Manager...where'd it go?


    I want to install a prettier theme for my KDE 3.2 desktop on Mandrake 10. Unfortunately, after downloading a theme and extracting the tar, I can't find Theme Manager, so I can't install it.

    Does 3.2 not use Theme Manager? If not, how do I install my new theme?

    3.2 has a theme manager, you just need to keep looking. I know its in the kontrol panel, or kde control center of whatever the are calling it. then just apperence-->theme manager.

    K -> system -> configure your desktop

    then look-n-feel -> style

    Oh, cool! Found it! Thanks guys.

    But now, since there's no "Add..." button, how do I add my theme? Do I need to drop the theme file directly into the style folder? That seems logical, but I have no idea where the folder is. Should I just do a file search for *.ktheme files?

    I've had that problem, too. Some themes I've added (both tar.gz and rpm) just don't show up at all, although they were installed for sure. Others show up as a 'style' level option under look and feel.

    Anyone?
