When im running make for building oxygen-transparent theme , I receive the following error :

kde@wilsonzaizai-Satellite-L510:~/oxygen-transparent/build$ sudo make install

[ 5%] Built target oxygentransparentstyle
[ 5%] Built target kwin3_oxygen_transparent_automoc

make[2]: *** [lib/] Error 1
make[1]: *** [decoration/config/CMakeFiles/kwin_oxygen_transparent_config.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

What is -loxygenstyle ?

-loxygenstyle means that it must be linked to the "oxygenstyle" library, which is not currently installed on your system.

If you search for liboxygenstyle on, you will find that it is provided by the package with the name "kdebase-workspace-dev", install it and retry.
