Keramik RPM (for RH + KDE 3.0.3)

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes

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 :-)

Would it be possible to have 2 different versions of Keramik? A standard version, and Keramik XL (or something like that) for those who have the cpu grunt/don't care about performance?

I think that's a wonderful idea. I hope that's possible.

kpersonalizer for KDE 3.1 already detects hardware like cpu speed, grafic acceleration (render) and sets defaults according to the system speed (e.g. anti aliased fonts are disabled for cpu's slower than 400.

No, the RPM does give you the complete
Keramik style. I just realised that in the
screenshot, I'm still using "Liquid" but
with the Keramik window borders for now.

I hate to say it, but this is still my favourite
combination for drool factor. There's really
ONE thing that stops me using the full theme:

The tabs need to be "connected" to the dialog
via a tab-coloured bar running across the top,
like Liquid. Without this, the tabs just look
like they're sitting awkwardly on top of the dialog
pane, without a clean connection.

i have got the same opinion..
the people who know the default theme of WinXP, and saw the tabbed Windows, for example any Settings/Preferences Window, they know, which is looking beautiful and completed, of course, it is still XP!

Read this:

Hi, 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

First of all ,keramik isnt finished.
We are about 2 months away from final.There will be some new features after the betalike colored active headers and new improved active toolbar items.
But besides that nothing that is visible.
We(ircnicks: qwertz,sadeagle,fred1)have worked on it since 4-5 months and we almost cant stand it anymore:)
So its up to you to add 3rd party patches here after the final,but i am pretty sure we wont touch it anymore.

If I sent you the sources I used and the SPEC file,
would this help? My RPM was a bit of a hack, and I
didn't think it would work, but it did, which is why
I decided to distribute it. Looking at my build tree,
I _think_ I still have the required source extraction.
