KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by ceebx 233 comments

this looks so beautiful - i want to try it! i can use the style just fine, but the window decoration doesn't seem to work.

i compiled and installed it (with no errours reported), but everytime i select Plastik - it just looks like Keramik.

i'm running RH7.3 with the kde-redhat packages (3.1.3a up to date). any one have any ideas? knifty works well for me now, but plastik looks better - and i wanna try it! :)

cheers! - Sep 18 2003

we keep adding patches to it, sorry to make you keep updating the RPM! :) we're now at 0.17c (just released it a minute ago)

i hope Hans gets back soon so we can incorporate these back into the main source.

Cyril's new text scrolling patch is pretty cool though. - Apr 18 2003

erk. it stripped my PANEL tags
those ICON things should be enclosed in something like

<PANEL X=10 Y=10 PATH="pics" NORMAL="32x32" NEXT="48x48" SELECTED="64x64">
... ICON parameters go here
</PANEL>

I think my current plan is to implement a tag like so:


ICON PATH="konq.png" LAUNCH="konqueror" TOOLTIP="Web Browser"
ICON PATH="kmail.png" LAUNCH="kmail" TOOLTIP="Email"
ICON PATH="xine.png" LAUNCH="xine" TOOLTIP="Movie Player"


this will enforce a directory structure like so:
pics/32x32/konq.png
pics/32x32/kmail.png
pics/32x32/xine.png
pics/48x48/konq.png
.
.
pics/64x64/xine.png

this way, it's flexible enough to let people choose their own image sizes.

what do you think?

woohoo. upping the ante, eh? :)

i don't think that would be *that* hard to do, the main problem is that the MacOSX panel is strictly that: a panel. neighbours to the left and right are at fixed known positions.

karamba lets you paint icons wherever you want, so there isn't really a concept of a "neighbour"

i was thinking of making a PANEL tag that would take a fixed set of icons, and then i can use your parabolic zoom idea and *that* would work.

what do you think? is it worth trying to implement? - Apr 18 2003

I just implemented this per your suggestion.
It seems to work fine, except tooltips only pop up if the application (Karamba in this case) has mouse focus. Since most users keep Karamba focused below, tooltips only pop up when the user brings focus to the Karamba window by clicking on it somewhere.

Other than that, it works fine. I'm sitting on this though until I can find a better way of doing it. - Apr 17 2003

Has anyone tried the rollover code yet? So far I've had a few people not be able to get it working, but I haven't received any confirmation it works for anyone besides myself.

please...someone save my sanity - tell me it works for you! :) - Apr 17 2003

I can't tell if KDElook is word-wrapping your line or not, but the PATHROLL parameter should be on the same line as the IMAGE tag - Apr 17 2003

not yet. i sent him my drop-down calendar patch and he said he was away for about a week. when he gets back, i will send it to him to be incorporated into the regular karamba sources.

i just wanted to pre-release it to get some feedback/bug reports first.

but don't worry...it will be incorporated soon (assuming he accepts it) - Apr 17 2003

thanks...accidentally left a couple debugging things in there. it *shouldn't* require iostream anymore. - Apr 17 2003
