Unfortunately kalbum does not look to have been updated since early 2004, so 
maybe it won't build correctly in newer KDE versions .

I did find another one I tried out a while ago, that still is around: 
http://albumshaper.sourceforge.net/index.shtml and

It is available in Universe for Kubuntu, and it looks pretty good. It only has 
a small number of themes, but they are all rather well done. I did not see 
any way to customize the themes, which is probably the only feature lacking 
in comparison to kalbum
