You can't apply Firefox theme, you just can use k-meleon skins.

Have a look to Skins forums, Extensions forums, or wiki pages.

Shortcut ;-)
Skins for KM 1.5.x can mainly be found here:
http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/K-MeleonThemes15 kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/K-MeleonThemes15

And of course in this forum here, but you found that already cool smiley

To apply them open your KM folder in Explorer (not the browser, but the file manager).
It contains a folder "skins", in it are all skins, each has their own folder.
Copy the new one there too, then start KM and click Edit/Preferences/GUI to choose one of the skins. Needs browser restart.

If you don't know how to find the skins folder, you could alternatively open KM and click Edit/Configuration/Macros, then go up one level.

A lot of skins are also located on my site, and setups install for 1.1.x and 1.5.x too.

Oops... almost forgot *blush*
But I just happen to see that for example the screenshot of the "gold" skin is missing the most important part - the golden background! The background is really a very essential part of a skin, it can make a world of a difference...

Apart from already posted info. Choose skin after installing & restart.

Versions with installer. Automated, start installer.

Packed versions. Best unpack in a new folder. PPL pack differently!
As a rule - put the folder or subfolder that contains toolbars.cfg
into K-Meleon/skins.


./24pxAuraAlpha/toolbars.cfg -> ./program files/K-Meleon/skins/24pxAuraAlpha...

An archive with some K-Meleon 1.5 skins including an older skin compile environment to turn them into skin Installers (K-Meleon 1.5.x only).*

Some existing K-Meleon subversions' skins updated to 1.5 skin code are currently only in available in this archive. Let us hope all skin makers are satisfied with the all in one update archive. Its main purpose is to facilitate the creation of individual updates. But it can also help end users of abandoned skins to find a current update of their favorite.

* The newest installers by alain have multiple K-Meleon version support.

All older skin installer versions only supported one K-Meleon version.

Unzip the themes download into your C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\skins directory. After that, select Edit>Preferences, click on GUI-Appearance and select the theme in the combo box of the skin group.
