I can select it in the ksplash config, but it does not work, I keep getting the default one. I can select the 'add' feature in ksplash, but since it is packaged without a directory, it does not load properly. Making a directory and moving the files in, gets it recognized in kspash and the test works, but when I login, no Kthuthlu.
My wife needs this.
KDE 3.2.2 and 3.2.3

Here's how these themes get installed:
you must have the following folder:
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes

It is in this folder that you must unzip the .zip file to to that the path to the files looks like this:
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Preview.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_active_bar.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_inactive_bar.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_top.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Theme.rc

You may have to create the ksplash/Themes folders. I don't think they existed by default on my setup.
Yes I know KDE3.2 allows you to test them, but it does not REALLY install the theme unless the files are setup as I've explained above.
Hope this helps! :)

I could have sworn I did that, but tried again and now it works. Perhaps I was looking at splash_* files from a different file.
Kthulhu is just tormenting me, that must be it.
Thanks.
