I have downloaded this theme from kde-look.

How I can install it? I copied the uncompressed files to ~.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ but it doesn't work.

~.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ [This path is for Plasma Themes]

Your theme is a QT curve style, go to System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > then where it says "Widget Style", select qtcurve from the dropdown list, then click apply. You can import your qtcurve theme and configure it by clicking on the "Configure" button next it.

You must Install QTcurve first, sudo apt-get install qtcurve

I see that the Theme you want is a QT curve style, you choose those in the KDE system settings>appearence>colors. – Uri Herrera Sep 25 '12 at 5:24
Yes, but nothing in color styles, only default system schemas – Stefan Luv Sep 25 '12 at 5:28

in application appearance > style only have to set graphic styles (oxigen,cleanlooks,etc ) and a demo of the selected style – Stefan Luv Sep 25 '12 at 5:35
