Installing a global theme through the KDE store doesn't work for me, due to a bug described here. So how can I install one manually?

  • Which distro are you on? Maybe you can add the output of plasmashell --version and kf5-config --version. And which particular global theme is the issue?

You can directly download the archive and extract it to ~/.local/share/plasma/desktoptheme/ to install it for user. If you want to install for system, then try to move it to /usr/share/plasma/desktoptheme/
