ooops, hahaha, I'm such a tool, seems you got your site up again moty, great, I was worried something nasty had happened to you.

What's the status ? do you have any plans for this or is it considered a completed project ? obsoleted by Qt/KDE 4 ? - Jan 10 2007

I had posted the above link so that you could grab the source and pkgs and maintain this proggie.
However, digilanti,org is not the new home of deKorator and it seems that nobody is maintaining this.
Hundreds and hundreds of downloads from my site but not a single thankyou from author or users,
too bad nobody took advantage of this or said thankyou, if they did it might still be there, oh well. - Jan 10 2007

No source on slackware.hu ??? but...
I note Cellophane 1.3 in your dir on home site,
if you are redistributing please update or link to my site for the latest version
1.3 is buggy and slow, should be 1.4 or 1.41. - Jan 08 2007

Hey, tnx for your support, but don't worry about it, I think most klookers don't vote or vote out of spite, you know,
"thats better than I could do so I vote bad to make me feel better" or "everybody else is voting good so I will too"
I don't really care how people vote, I know this code is way better than many of the posts here but,
I still vote good for DarkLayer because you are the first and so far only person to take advantage of what Cellophane does.

Thankyou and bravo, that is what Cellophane is supposed to be. - Dec 19 2006

there is only one way to change the ugly beveled borders on tabframes groupboxes and others
hack the builtin engine, it only provides for pixmaped button borders, uses motif style to render what is not handled in the engine

what is handled ???

// unsunken widgets (see headers)
"PushButton", "ComboBox", "HSBarSlider", "VSBarSlider", "Bevel", "ToolButton",
"ScrollButton", "HScrollDeco", "VScrollDeco", "ComboDeco", "MenuItem", "Tab",
"ArrowUp", "ArrowDown", "ArrowLeft", "ArrowRight",
// sunken widgets
"PushButtonDown", "ComboBoxDown", "HSBarSliderDown", "VSBarSliderDown",
"BevelDown", "ToolButtonDown", "ScrollButtonDown", "HScrollDecoDown",
"VScrollDecoDown", "ComboDecoDown", "MenuItemDown", "TabDown", "SunkenArrowUp",
"SunkenArrowDown", "SunkenArrowLeft", "SunkenArrowRight",
// everything else
"HScrollGroove", "VScrollGroove", "Slider", "SliderGroove", "CheckBoxDown",
"CheckBox", "CheckBoxTri", "RadioDown", "Radio", "HBarHandle", "VBarHandle",
"ToolBar", "Splitter", "CheckMark", "MenuBar", "DisableArrowUp",
"DisableArrowDown", "DisableArrowLeft", "DisableArrowRight", "ProgressBar",
"ProgressBackground", "MenuBarItem", "Background", "RotSlider",
"RotInactiveTab", "RotActiveTab"

one of my favorite pixmaped themes

this might help, a kdevelop theme project, http://www.digilanti.org/werks/detente/ThemedStyles-0.3.tar.bz2

USAGE NOTE: do this as user NOT root
> tar -xjf ThemedStyles-0.3.tar.bz2
> cd ThemedStyles
> ./configure
> make install
> kinstalltheme

the last command is required to make user installed pixmap themes show up in kcontrol

this installs three pixmap styles in user space, not hard at all to add more styles or remove the existing and replace with yours
after >./configure you can import ThemedStyles project in kdevelop, I highly recommend this as its much easier to manage
then you can make tarballs or rpms ;)
if you do it manually be sure to copy and edit the required makefiles.am and stuff to your theme project dir in ThemedStyles/
or maybe a very bright but bored coder might make this into a template, plug and go pkg for pmthemes

hope this helps... - Aug 28 2006

make changes and apply them
switch back to old deco ( if you like )

KDE 3.5 Themes by morgenrot 404 comments

cool, I did that sort of thing with the builtin pixmap based style engine
it handled alpha channels and pixmaped borders, there is a lot of potential in the builtin engine (themed styles)
it also handles tinting and can be hacked to use animated buttons and pixmap container borders.
but it seems that no one knows this

the only problem with what I wrote (detente) is that it requires creativity
and I got very little input on code

RE: the next comment below
I found that if the style does not test all aspects and account for them,
like pixmap used is expected to have a mask or alpha and it doesn't
or if cache ing is not managed accurately the style can gobble up all available ram including swap partition.
can also occur if an improperly initialized palette is set as current palette with most but not all colors setup right.
these things usually cause a crash immediately unless the thing causing it is initialized enough to be valid but not complete.

I haven't looked at domino code closely so this may be something completely different
I may have time this weekend, if so, I will try to offer some constructive input. - Aug 10 2006

uhm, forgive me if I missunderstand but if you can blend one just call the same routine again with the output from the first run as the background in the second run with img2 blended on that
the final out is two blended on bg

assuming three imgs, bg-0, blend-1, blend-2 with the result as the final screen part to render - Jul 28 2006

Basic Widget style and SVG Template

KDE 3.5 Themes by arenyart 12 comments

bevel frames can be changed ;)
the themed style frames are soooo ugly and hardcoded
but I think I have a solution...

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=35929

this lets the BevelButton serve as BevelFrame for themed styles

so, make a nice bevel button pixmap with border and the tab, progress and spinbox frames use that border

pixmap borders for themed styles, no more hardcoded - Jun 06 2006

yes, detenate does, it is a standard image format feature you should be aware of.

if user neglects to add mask your proggie should create mask based on bg color or transparency if needed
and not force user to manually create and provide material that is already created/provided in the pixmap by gimp et:al - Mar 23 2006

sounds like ui-cc-h files not remade

in kdevelop select the ui file in the automake manager
that should pull up designer
with the ui file loaded and visible in the current view
select the menu item Build-->Make File
that should recreate the cc and h files and also
cause the associated moc files to be rebuilt

I've noticed this is a persistant symptom for the first make
in many ui based kdevelop projects but subsequent makes
seem to catch any changes to the ui file

hope this helps, it worked for me - Oct 06 2005
