I was wondering if anyone on the design team could help out?

The documentation team has adopted the following "theme" (XP-Silver theme)[1] for their use of screenshots. I was wondering if anyone could help in trying to make this theme more "user friendly" in the installation procedure. If you download the theme from the link on that page[2], it gives you installation procedures for Ubuntu. I am not sure if the directions on that page work for all of the latest versions of Ubuntu, however, the problem with the installation procedures is that it is not as easily accomplished on any other Linux distros (I use Mageia 1). I tried to install it, but it never quite got the same results as the examples on the wiki page examples.

So, I was wondering if anyone on the design team could help in making this a theme that we could post on the and as a theme. This would make the "LibO screenshot" theme available to more distros and make it more seamless. I did join the KDE forums and got some feedback from one person on the forums[3], but even there, I just could not seem to make this work. (BTW ... my version of Mageia 1 uses KDE 4.6.3)

I was hoping that if we could make this theme more easy to install for our user base, then we could perhaps enlist more people to help out with screenshots. I am particularly interested in helping out with taking screenshots for both our website and documentation needs. I know that I could install Ubuntu, but to me it would seem to make more sense to adopt/modify/create a theme that is more easily installed by a larger number of members on Linux distro's than to limit a theme to those who are only on Ubuntu. We could get more help by making it universal.

Could anyone help out? Comments and help are greatly appreciated.
