Example Installation
The example themes requires the KDE 3.2 or greater libraries. This
can be found at <>. These are also included with
many Linux, BSD and Unix systems.
You also need GNU make, and not your standard make. On many systems,
GNU make has been installed as "gmake" If this is your situation,
substitute "gmake" for every occurance of "make" in these
To save room in the distribution, the admin directory is not included
nor any of its included files. Before you can build the example, this
must be added. The simplest way is to copy one over from another KDE
The themes use the 'configure' script to attempt a reasonable and
correct configuration for compilation on your system. It creates an
appropriate 'Makefile' for each directory in this package, along with
one or more headerfiles containing system-dependent definitions. It
also creates 'config.status','config.cache' and 'config.log' files
that are useful for recreating or debugging the configuration.

Example Installation in a Nutshell:
1) Type './configure'
2) Type 'make'
3) Type 'make install'
Example Installation in More Detail:
0) Make sure that the prerequisite KDE 3.2 development libraries and
headers are installed first. These can be found at
1) Unzip and untar the package into its own directory. Change into
this directory, and read the README file. (I'm assuming that
you've read this, the INSTALL file :-))
2) Type './configure --help", and peruse the configure options
available. It may be necessary to use one or more of these options
on your system.
3) Type './configure' to configure the software for your system. If
you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need
to type `sh ./configure' instead.
4) Type 'make' to compile the package.
5) If you are not logged in as root, type 'su' and enter the root
password to switch over to the root account. This is not necessary
if you configured the software to install to your home directory/
6) Type 'make install' to install the software.
7) Activate the styles, decorations and color schemes through the
KDE Control Center or the Preferences menu.
8) You can uninstall the software by typing 'make uninstall'.
A Note on the KDE Library
If you are having problems configuring the software, first make sure
that the required KDE 3.0 or greater libraries are installed. Several
systems have broken this into several packages. You will need both
the runtime and the development packages.
If you still have problems, set the TDEDIR environment variable and
the --prefix configure option to the location where you installed
KDE. Also makesure that you are using GNU make and not the standard
make everyone else uses.
Rebuilding the Configuration
If you ever need to rebuild the configuration files, type the
following in thebase directory of the distribution:
make -f Makefile.cvs
You will need the current automake/autoconf set of programs.
