I use kubuntu and I compiled the source of qtcurve and installed (the result is shown at the end). After, I went to System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Style -> Applications -> Widget Style, but there is no qtcurve to choose there. If I use sudo apt-get install qtcurve, there is qtcurve to choose. I guess the problem is that qtcurve is installed to a different location, but I don't know how to fix this problem.

I think something is wrong with prefix path - must be /usr, not /usr/local (which is default).

As I see, your sources using cmake program to compile, so don't forget to add

-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr

when running cmake.
