    Default How to install theme in KDE?

    I never done this, used only default, but I wanted to try some themes from kde-look.org. I found one nice (Azenis_Theme) but like the rest, comes as .tar.gz file, which contains many folders with images and gz files etc etc.

    However, when I go to personal settings -> themes -> install new theme, it never show any "Theme files" in given directory.
    What "theme files" filter in dialog filters out? How do I install theme on easy way, and not by copying bunch of files into bunch of directories?

    Hello,

    I think you shouldn't extract them, and it will show the compressed folder.
    Select the compress flder and it should be fine?
    It's the way it orks under gnome, at least, I didn't test it with gnome.

    Bye

    well, this is a problem. Install Theme button opens dialog, which has filter for "Theme files" and shows no files. Actually "theme files" are not gz files and I cannot select anything.
    Gnome is different story, this is question for KDE 3.5.x
    Thanks

    The is a how-to on KDE-Look.org:
    Howto KDE-Look.org.
    IMHO the simplest way would be installing it from rpm package. You can found some in the Community repo:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop.
    Good luck.

    not so much help. Theme manager wants "theme files" and .gz is not that.
