Goes nicely with lipstick. Any chance of having the minimize and restore buttons evenly spaced with the close button?
Great stuff!

I think plastik fits quite nicely, although I might modify that later if i can't leave well enough alone..

Hey is there any way you could port the MKUltra windeco to 3.3?

make complains about missing config.moc. What are these .moc files anyway? Here is the output from ./configure --prefix=/usr followed by make: http://math.ut.ee/~sverik/flatkniftyCompileError
I am running an updated Fedora Core 2 with KDE 3.3

I meet same problem. And workarounding it below steps.

cd flatKnifty_top_dir
mv Makefile Makefile.FCS
make -f Makefile.dist
configure -prefix=....
(perhaps need `make clean' if you tried compiling .)
make
make install

mm, reminds me of the 'Web' style that was in kde 2. i quite liked that, why'd they take it away?
oh and before i instal this, do maximised windows have the close and menu buttons right in the corners of the screen like the plasik one?

This drives me crazy. saw the screenshots
and now I REALLY WANT IT.
The problem is, that I've already installed
Knifty. I tried make clen, su and make
uninstall, but there are still files
that mess. In the preview it shows the
great flat theme, but in "real" it is still
the great orginal - Knifty.

Please help me!

It works!
After a ctral+alt+backspace, it worked.
I really enjoy this theme, thank you very much!

Nice, just compiling. :-)

But which style and color scheme are you using? I guess Plastik, but I just can't get it to look like your screen :-)

I'd have to say it takes a very nice WinDec and makes more towards my liking :) GJ
