    Default How to change desktop theme in kde

    I've installed the theme via add on installer. But when I checked on configure desktop->workspace appearance ->desktop theme, it didn't appear! Any idea how to change the theme? I'm using opensuse 13.2

    Sometimes the installer doesn't work.
    When I have this problem I do this, I 1st go here:

    http://kde-look.org

    Find a theme( let's say Velours) & download (it'll be a tarball) then
    1.Place it in a folder I made called kdedesktops in my home folder
    2.Move velours from Downloads to the aforementioned folder
    3.Rclick & select extract here you'll see a velours folder when its done
    4.Click View in the menubar check View Hidden files for your Home folder
    5.Find .kde4 then open it, go to apps>share>desktopthemes
    6.C & P the velours folder there close Dolphin

    Now go check out Configure settings> Workspace Appearence & see if it's there
    if all has gone well it is.
