Erm .. Ville doesn't specify which Debian release he's using, but if
he's using Woody, then AFAIK there is no Plastik package available,
and the only way to get this style is to download the source tarball
from http://www.kde-look.org and compile it yourself.
I did this successfully in January.

I checked there, but there was no Woody Plastik package at that time
