Description:

This is a port of the Carbonite GTK and Metacity theme (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=45590) to KDE.

It contains a windec, colorscheme, qtcurve-config and kicker background.

There are now 3 versions available:
Karbonit
Karbonit-Dark
Karbonit-EvenDarker

You need:
-deKorator
-QTcurve

Have fun :)




How to install:

1 - Get deKorator and install it. KDE-Look has plenty packages for it, so just look if there is one for your distribution. If theres no package you have to build dekorator from source.

2 - Get and install the QTcurve style. Also take a look for packaged versions here on KDE-Look.

3 - Extract the Karbonit tarball somewhere. Be sure to keep the deKorator folder after installing, so just copy it somewhere else.

4 - In Kcontrols window decoration settings, switch to deKorator and adjust the paths for the dekorator tiles under the "paths" session. The "themes"-tab does not work correctly, so you have to set the paths manually to the subdirs of the deKorator theme you want. This is pretty self-explaining.

5 - Switch to QTcurve in Kcontrols "style" section, then open QTcurves settings and load the Karbonit profile and apply it.

6 - And at last, import the KDE colorscheme and apply it and you're done.

You can also configure deKorator to show some little nifty effects when hovering the buttons. Just take a look here: http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/1370/dekoratorjy0.jpg


The Wallpaper used in the screenshots is called Fresh Flower and it is available here:

Changelog:
0.1 - initial release
0.2 - added EvenDarker schemes and deco
0.3 - some minor improvements on the windec buttons and colorschemes (check out EvenDarker, it rocks :)

I like it very much.

Could you please tell us, what font for the kicker clock you have used ?

And where does one find this nice orange flower wallpaper ?

Thank You very much in advance,

Thanks :)

The font used for the clock is called HandelGotDBol. Its part of the handelgot fontset, but sadly its a commercial font and i dont know where to get it... There was once a download at deviantart providing this font with a theme for windows, but i do not remember the name...


The wallpaper is part of the gnome desktop, and you can download it here:

I dont know what problems you have with QTcurve. If you use a precompiled package for your distro, i would recommend building the latest QTcurve from source and see if thats better...

Sorry, I installed qtcurve via apt - and it just installed the gnome version only (I trusted the apt automatism too much ;).

Its the baghira sidebar... You can install it as standalone without the whole baghira theme by doing ./configure in the baghira folder, then cd sidebar and then make, make install... I love this sidebar so much that i even built a package for it :)

Only thing is that it's Carbonite not Carbonit. :)

true, but karbonite would be nothing but a misspelled version of carbonite, with the kutesy k. Karbonit on the other hand is german for carbonite ;) Spelling it that way gives an excuse for the k hehe
