    KDE Themes Not Showing After Install

    Hello. So I go in to Application Launcher -> Applications -> Settings -> System Settings -> Workspace Appearance -> Desktop Theme and then I click on the button that says "Get New Themes...". Then I install a theme.

    Now the problem I have is that the theme now does not show as a theme under the "Theme" tab under "Desktop Theme". Can someone help me fix this issue? I am running Kubuntu 12.10

    This happens sometimes when themes fail to get extracted by the theme installer.

    The downloaded theme package should still be in a temporary directory within your hidden ~/.kde configuration folder. Look for it there.

    /home/username/.kde/tmp-folder/theme.tar.gz

    When you find it, extract the theme package, then place the contents of that theme package in:

    /home/username/.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/

    Now you will be able to go to System Settings -> Workspace Appearance -> Desktop Theme and find and select the theme.

    Themes can also be downloaded with your web browser from kde-look.org too.
    Look for the section called Plasma Themes to get desktop themes.
