Description:

There were many requests that someone should port roberTO's great gtk-theme VistaBut (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=32227) to KDE... so, here it is!

Well, it's not a standalone theme but a mod for Lipstik.

Instructions on how to install are included in the package.

Credit goes to roberTO21 and PaT!

How do you add that? And where do I put Vistesque.kcsrc? I have the same make problems as the guy above... why is it so hard to install a theme? Why does the "install theme" in KDE not work?

There is one problem with this theme style. OpenOffice.org use the menus bar (File | ... | Tools | Help) background from "Vistesque..." theme (dark blue), but can't use the font color (for the menu buttons) from this style (white).

I have black menu text color sets (for kde menus), and I can't see the text on the menu (menu bar) buttons.

The over mouse menu bar buttons (when I move mouse cursor over menu button) aren't shiny-glass too (the buttons not change).

The problem is with OO. In another applicatin everythink is ok.

Is any way to fix this problem, for example (the best way) force OO.org to use "Vistesque..." menu bar format (full - menu background, menu text, etc), or to use full own gray menu bar (and all window background) like it is in Firefox or Opera?

OpenOffice's a bitch, since it has it's own style-engine and I haven't found out a way to hack that. However, a big thanks for your great feedback, but I'm not able to fix that problem.

WOW i love this theme, thanks, but i can't figure out how you did some stuff

In konqueror how did you get that side bar, with My Computer, Network...

And how did you get the menu lists in kwrite to be transparent?

And how did you get the tab bar in konqueror that has tabs like amarok, bookmarks, history, metabar... to go away?

Thanks

And how did you get the menu lists in kwrite to be transparent?

kcontrol > style/appereance -> style -> effects -> menu transparency ...this can vary depending on the distro

You didn't write that taskbar can look like yours (transparent) only if you have KDE 3.5

I tried out vistesque, some bits are nice, but I think the menu bars are still broken.

If a window isn't suffiently big to fit all the menu items on a single line the shading goes wrong.

I think this is because you're drawing the two-tone shade at half the menu bar height, which if its two lines, should become quarter height and two lines of shading?

Not entirely sure how Windows Vista draws this, be interested to see if you could fix it though! :)

You're right, and I'm really keen on fixing that bug, but it's driving me crazy. I can't think of any way to fix that bug in an aestethic manner. Every solution looks ugly... maybe you could help me.

in lipstik.h there is
"bool _enableVitesque;" missing. Adding that to the file will make it work.

Thank you for following up on this. I finally got it all working. I do have a suggestion. Is there a way to possibly integrate the polymer/polyester shiny look to the buttons and tabs, instead of the 'flat' look of lipstik? Since the colored bar has a 'glass' look, I think it would be more in keep with the over theme.

hello,

I proudly present you the Debian sarge package of kde-style-vistesque. I build it with pbuilder in a chroot against "only" sarge packages. It runs under Sarge with X.org 6.9 and KDE 3.4.3 as well. I also included the colorscheme. Note: a installed kde-style-lypstik will be removed!

Add the following line to your sources.list:

# i386 (sarge)
deb http://manfred.cp69.de/debian/ sarge main
deb-src http://manfred.cp69.de/debian/ sarge main

and then

apt-get install kde-style-vistesque

I hope it will work. I will also include the Sid package in the next few days.

You'll have to configure and make, make install. By the way, the new version doesn't have to be patched no more.
