Keramik RPM (for RH + KDE 3.0.3)

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes

5.0
Description:

This is an RPM for everyone who wants the
latest Keramik snapshot. I hacked it using
the CVS sources, and for me, the crucial
feature is that you can change the colour
scheme of the lovely window borders, which
you couldn't on the widely distributed older
snapshot from June. It was built on RH 7.3
against the latest KDE 3.0.3 addons, and
installs in /usr/lib/kde3. If you get a
dependency error about kwin, just ignore it,
ie use --nodeps :-)

I just registered with the site here to comment on Keramik.

Thanks for making a RPM out of it for us to enjoy it.

Keramik looks and feels terrific! Cannot wait for KDE3.1 :)

It looks good, but two things that I liked better with the older version: 1. The widgets were square, the new ones look like they expand at the top. 2. The gradient had a "stripe effect" that I thought was nice.

After I installed the RPM my taskbar became transparent, does someone know how to remove it?

Hi!

please excuseme my english, i don't speak very well.

If you want REMOVE the transparent kicker background, you should edit the file keramik.cpp into kstyle/keramik. Inside of keramik.cpp search the string "kicker" and change the option panelType = 1 for PanelType = 0. You can change the opacity and can set striped pannel too.
I had problem searching the Keramik TarBall, so I found finally an old version, can download it at:
http://linuzito.com.ar/~estebanmake:
but I can't compile it, an error:
*** No rule to make target `/lib/libkdeui.la', needed by `keramik.la.closure'. Stop. appears.
Good luck!

Well, that's kinda the point of it. It's a new option that will be in KDE 3.1. How to REVOVE it now? I honestly have no idea. I'm just typing to let you know that's kinda the point of this theme (among other things).

Dunno where it comes from.

It's gkrellm - nice little program.

See www.gkrellm.net or hunt around
for some RPMs out there. RH7.3 (and
probably other distros) includes
this nifty monitoring tool.

Where'd you get that blue-gradient version of TuXPerience? We wants it :-)

I didn't change the image, I just added some
colour blending:

Colour 1 = mid blue
Colour 2 = dark blue
Mode = horizontal gradient

Blending = pyramid blending 40%

Hope this makes sense - just play around I guess!

For all you SuSE users. Just to let you know. You can download this RPM and extract the files..then place them in /opt/kde3 and they work perfectly. :)

Thanks people. This style kicks the crap out of XP and OSX :)

the latest file in there is keramik-20020729-23.rpm

Have fun!

Well as a user of a source based distro (Slackware) RPM isnt a great idea (Even converting with Alien Slackware uses /opt/kde/ NEway) I have searched through the CVS of kde and cant find the keramik source so could you be so kind as to tell me where to get it.

Thanx in advance

when it is completely cohesive. i.e. when the window backgrounds aren't the flat gray of the kde default style. Until then, it looks way too unfinished. Nonetheless, it has GREAT potential.

But we cant do it.
Its a too big speed hit.
After all the style was planned to be default,so it must be fast on low end machines.
Not everybody has a Athlon XP:)

Hi people,
what about these ideas..
is it also a speed hit, if the color of the tapped-pane is diffrent of the window-background color ? look at the default style of WinXP, that is really a complete Look!
and, what about, if the awful border of the Kicker will dissapear?! if you put a nice background-pic, but anyway, there is the "waaaaa" grey (or what ever) border that is really misplaced.. the size should be set to "0". Example: WinXP.
i can't imagine that this is so much work..;) and, another thing, to give KDE a great Look is, to separate the Style-pixmaps of the Taskbar-items from the same Style-Pixmaps of Konquerors 'Detailed View-Mode'(look at items "Name, Size, Typ,...")

Till now, it seems, that there is anything equal of the Taskbar and the Konqueror's 'Detailed View-Mode'

My opinion is, that KDE will be perfect, if it could look just like any Desktop.

Some other nice things would be..
"giving every virtual desktop of KDE an own handling of Text-Color, and/or Hiding the Icons. Imagine.., that could be useful for a "Presentation-Mode" or whatever, for example, if people are getting mad of too much icons on their Desktop ;)

An example: it doesn't make any sense, if you can change the text-color or the Icons of only 1 desktop to be able to read the Names/text. because, if you switch to another virtual desktop, with a beautiful background-picture, you may notice. that you can't read the text at all, because it has got the same color like the picture..
People with bad Eyes may have got problems to read it!

Anyway, i switched completly from Windowz to Linux, with the great KDE, i love it!
thx

Good to hear you're WinDependant ;-) I'm 80% WinDependant - I still use Windows for some games (until I can get them to run under Linux, of course :-D) You've got some great ideas.
