Ok, perhaps the intention of my question wasn't very clear.

I've tried using the themes, and didn't manage to. I did however
manage to use Oxygen_Black from kde, which comes with an index.theme.
I'm not sure if that's the relevant difference or something else, but
I wonder if the themes are even usable without those files.
