Oxygen KDE (Firefox Theme)

Yep, many thanks for the update. Firefox is so damn ugly without this theme. - Jun 08 2012

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by jimmy88 1783 comments

Add-ons are not plugins ;-) Flash is a plugin. Oxygen KDE is a theme and an add-on.

Hoping to be able to use this with FF9 soon. Just a days without it is already driving me crazy :-) - Dec 22 2011

I updated from 3.3 to 3.4.2 and some websites now have a somewhat broken layout. Screenshot from affected site when using default theme or Oxygen KDE 3.3:

and when using Oxygen KDE 3.4.2:

Ah, OK. I suppose the issue will be solved when Oxygen-gtk will be drawing native scrollbars :-) - Jul 18 2011

There's a bug with the scrollbars. If you zoom a page (CTRL+MouseWheel or +/- keys) and you have "View->Zoom->Zoom Text Only" disabled, then the scrollbars are being zoomed too. - Jul 18 2011

There are many differences when you customize how Oxygen looks (split vs plain tabs, for example). - Jul 18 2011

Thanks for this theme. It's awesome! Only a minor issue though: The theme conflicts with the oxygen-gtk theme. For example, with the vanilla Firefox theme, oxygen-gtk is able to draw dialog tabs, buttons and other widgets correctly and they look 100% correct like oxygen-qt widgets. This theme overrides that and the widgets don't look 100% native anymore.

Yes, that means that this theme makes Firefox look less like a KDE app in this case because it doesn't let oxygen-gtk to its job! - Jul 14 2011
Chakra Gtk Config - KCM

System Software by chakra-project 27 comments

I'm using this after kcm_gtk which I was using before got abandoned. It works just as well, except for one thing though: the font configuration was better in kcm_gtk. It had a checkbox that said "Use my KDE fonts in Gtk applications". That way, I didn't have to configure the font twice, one for KDE, one for Gtk, or forget to change the Gtk font whenever making changes to the KDE one. Both were linked. - May 13 2011

yaWP (Yet Another Weather Plasmoid)

Plasma 4 Extensions by PlasmaFactory 1198 comments

Thanks for the updated version. I used this a few months back, but the fonts were quite ugly (Air theme, black fonts.) Now I tried it again since I saw a few updates were done, and the black fonts now look very nice!

Thanks for this plasmoid. It's now the weather plasmoid I prefer. - Aug 19 2010
soundKonverter

Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

Thanks for this application. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to support cue files? I have a large ape file along with a cue file. There doesn't seem to be a way to create ogg files out of it. - Aug 16 2010
SHOUTcast service

Amarok 2.x Scripts by cotko 47 comments

The real shoutcast browser (http or in WinAmp) also have bitrate information. That way I can tell which stations are higher quality. Is it possible for this script to also show the stream bitrate? - Aug 12 2010

Amarok 2.x Scripts by cyrusdreams 15 comments

I uninstalled the script because of this pop-up; It told me once about the time delay, it doesn't need to tell me over and over and over again.

I also don't want to start editing files; that's not user friendly. - Jul 20 2010

Amarok 2.x Scripts by cyrusdreams 15 comments

There's an annoying pop-up error message *every* time Amarok is started, saying that fetching stations might take some time.

This is quite unacceptable. Can this be disabled? - Jul 16 2010
Well, I can't get it to work :P I did select "Titlebar border" in Menubars->Coloration. - May 19 2010
Is it possible yet to have Gtk QtCurve use the KWin titlebar shade/gradient? - May 19 2010
Unfortunately, doesn't seem to work correctly here. When I choose that option, I get:

http://i42.tinypic.com/2j0fhhd.png - May 04 2010
I see this in the changelog:

"Add option to use kwin titlebar colours as menubar shade."

I can't that option though. How do I enable this? - May 04 2010
Can't seem to be able to do it for Qt/KDE apps. I have enabled the appropriate option in QtCurve's configuration dialog ("Blend titlebar color into background color"), but I get this:

http://i48.tinypic.com/w7lul2.png

For reference, Oxygen looks like this:

http://i50.tinypic.com/4si24p.png

(It uses both a vertical as well as a horizontal gradient at the same time.)

Gtk apps look correctly. I suspect due to KWin disabling gradient effects for some common Gtk apps. Here's Thunderbird 3:

Is there a way to make QtCurve blend nicely with the KWin colors (like Oxygen does)? For example, the window titlebar is a different color than the rest of the window and looks separated. - Feb 15 2010
KMid

Music Production by plcl 54 comments

Ah, OK. I thought ALSA was only one of the back-ends supported and that I could use timidity or fluidsynth as back-end instead. - Feb 09 2010
KMid

Music Production by plcl 54 comments

I can't start this. It seems it requires ALSA, which I don't have. KDE 4's Phonon works fine here (it's configured to use OSS4). - Feb 09 2010
yaWP (Yet Another Weather Plasmoid)

Plasma 4 Extensions by PlasmaFactory 1198 comments

I found a bug. yaWP shows a sun behind clouds in the current weather even though it's midnight (lol :P) Also, the temperature info isn't the same as the info on accuweather.com (I'm using that service in yaWP.)

yaWP (Yet Another Weather Plasmoid)

Plasma 4 Extensions by PlasmaFactory 1198 comments

Thank you very, very much for this plasmoid! The ones that come with KDE for some reason choose to support services that don't offer weather for not-so-popular regions, which means I can't get weather info for where I live. yaWP supports AccuWeather and Google (why on earth don't the KDE ones support Google for heaven's sake, that's just dumb) and both show accurate weather info for my city. - Jan 19 2010

Thank you and ευχαριστώ for this! :D - Jun 19 2009
Thunderbird 3 has the same problem as Firefox 3.5 (they're both based on Xulrunner 1.9.1 so that's to be expected), namely the configuration dialog doesn't work. I have to edit .thunderbird/my_profile/chrome/userChrome.css and remove the button-swap entry for it to work. But when I do this, QtCurve will put the entry back again later :P - Jun 12 2009
PS:

The bigger problem here is that deleting that line completely and letting Qt use the default style (which is QFrame::LineEditPanel | QFrame::Sunken) also triggers the bug. That means every Qt 3 application using margins will probably look wrong :P - Jun 11 2009
I've found the problem. Yes, QTads 1.8 does not trigger the glitch because it calls:

QTextEdit::setFrameStyle(QFrame::Box | QFrame::Plain);

(src/qtadsgamewindow.cc, line 72.)

In QTads 1.9 (not released yet) I've changed that to:

QTextEdit::setFrameStyle(QFrame::LineEditPanel | QFrame::Plain);

in order to get rid of the awful black border around the text window. If you change that line and rebuild, you will see the glitch. - Jun 11 2009
You don't need one, but you can find games here:

http://ifdb.tads.org/search?sortby=ratu&newSortBy.x=5&newSortBy.y=10&searchfor=system%3ATADS

Here's a direct link to one:

http://mirror.ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/competition97/tads/glow/glow.gam

The problem appears after you go into the configuration dialog of QTads, and in the "Formatting" tab choose non-0 left and right margins.

What this does is call QScrollView::setMargins(). The background color is set with QWidget::setPaletteBackgroundColor() (I know because I'm the author of QTads :P) - Jun 11 2009
There's visual bug with colors with Qt 3 apps after upgrading to 0.63.0 or 0.64.0. I had 0.62.7 before that and it was looking OK. Screenshots follow.

0.63.0 and 0.64.0:
http://i43.tinypic.com/11qofg5.png
(Note the wrong color around the QTextEdit widget.)

0.62.7:
http://i44.tinypic.com/osrfcp.png
(The right color is used for the margins of the QTextEdit.)

Note that other styles (Plastique or the Qt3 build-in styles) always look right. Only QtCurve 0.63.0/0.64.0 have this bug.) - Jun 11 2009
Hmm, I've done "rm ~/.config/qtcurve*" and it doesn't crash anymore. I would send you those files by email but you don't have your email address listen anywhere. - Jun 10 2009
I was using 0.62.8. Now I've updated to 0.63.0 and Firefox (3.0.10 64-bit) crashes when scrolling up or down with:

(firefox:31571): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_cairo_create: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed
Segmentation fault - Jun 10 2009
This doesn't work, grub only shows a text-mode screen with no graphics at all. Trying to compile the theme with gfxboot results in "help2txt: command not found" - Aug 03 2008
