How-To: Compile and Install the QtCurve Style for KDE3 in Debian Lenny

Note: This how-to may also work on Ubuntu and other Debian-based distributions.

QtCurve is a beautiful and highly configurable style for KDE. It's mature and bug-free, so if you want to give it a try, download the source for KDE 3 from the KDE-Look.org page . Next, install the dependencies:

apt-get install build-essential cmake kdebase-dev cmake lsb-cxx

Then, issue the following commands in the QtCurve directory:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make install

The last command as root. Your style should now be installed. To apply it and configure QtCurve, run KControl (hit ALT+F2 and enter kcontrol), go to Appearance & Themes -> Style, and select QtCurve from the Widget Style drop-down list.
