    Default How to install themes for KDE 3.x

    Am running openSUSE 11.1.
    I would like to install a theme for KDE 3.5.10 that is simple and without the rounded/ glossy buttons that come as default in KDE.

    - Where can I find /download additional themes for KDE 3.x (also for the gnome desktop) ?

    - And how to install them, after download (for both: KDE & gnome Desktops) ?

    If you are using 11.1 - are you saying you use kde3 and gnome.

    I checked your threads and it looks like you may have been using kde4 also, and xfce. So you have installed kde3 also.?

    Most of the themes come as an archive, some may contain install instructions - or there is probably a link on the page giving install details.

    KDE4 does not work, so I'm using only KDE 3.5 & GNOME (occasionally XFCE). But I wanted the extra themes for KDE 3.5 (not gnome/XFCE).

    Could not find a link there to any sort of instructions. There is a long list of questions in the 'Forums' section, but this doesn't seem to be searchable.

    Default Re: How to install themes for KDE 3.x

    eg:
    Azenis KDE-Look.org

    on the page I quote:

    Decompress the Azneins Theme and find the readme.pdf inside. It tells you how to install the theme


    Another option is to add this repo
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Community/openSUSE_11.1

    it should have some extra themes to install.

    and the build service for kde3 will bring you more up to date too
