 How to install Theme Manager? WAY NEWBIE!
Hi all.

Just finished installing KDE 1.1.1 on Slack 4.  I downloaded the tarball
for the KDE theme manager, but I'm not sure where to unpack it to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Please, be very precise.  I'm just learning Linux, but I'm learning to
like it.

TIA,

Mike

I'd suggest mv'ing the tarball to /usr/local/src/desired-name-e-g-kthemgr,
tar xzf'ing it there, calling ./configure --prefix=/usr/local and then
make && make install.
If this isn't precise enough for you, turn to

Caution: From what I've heard, the theme manager is not very stable;
in particular, it can break your KDE config w/o an _easy_ way to undo.
As an absolute newbie, you might want to start on something else.

Good luck,

Theme manager IS stable. KDE 1.1.2 is released and theme manager is
in.

When I went to www.kde.org yesterday and perused the mirrors, I
couldn't find KDE 1.1.2 under the stable section.  I only found it
under unstable, listed as KDE 1.1.2pre.  Any idea where the stable
1.1.2 release can be found?

If not, what's the secret to configuring and compiling the KDE Theme
Manager on Solaris 2.6 SPARC with KDE 1.1.1?  We unpacked the
distribution, ran ./configure, ran make, and got:

make  all-recursive
Making all in kthememgr
mksh: Fatal error in reader: = missing from replacement macro reference
Current working
directory /export/home/rshipp/kdethmmgr/kthememgr/kthememgr
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'
Current working directory /export/home/rshipp/kdethmmgr/kthememgr
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive-am'

Any ideas?

KDE 1.1.2 was just released earlier today.  Check again, and if you can't
find it give the mirrors a few hours to catch up.
