Description:

'Acqua' is the italian translation of the term 'Water'.
This style it's written with the old KDE pixmap engine, so it doesn't support the trasparent menu effect.
The applications you see in the screenshot are:
GKrellM: System monitoring tool with Acqua skin. http://www.gkrellm.net
Konqueror: Web browser. http://www.konqueror.org
Kopete: Multiprotocol istant messaging client. http://kopete.kde.org
SuperKaramba Kroller applet: MacOSX like dockbar. http://www.kde-look.org
If you want to download this GKrellM skin visit my Home Page. http://www.aronnax.it

For some reason my Suse 9.1 don't have kinstalltheme.

Any suggestion where I can find it? Search and look for it in my YAst2 software install and I can't find it? Please advise? Thanks.

I just installed this theme on linux 9.1 (SuSe)

Installation worked well. I can select the acqua style and the Background image.

but if i want to select the iceWM window decoration the iceWM just doesn't appear in the list.

anyone any ideas how to fix that?

QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used

What's the matter????

ok, this theme works with mandrake 10 official but not with community. don't know what's different. if you have that distro install acqua as root and it'll work.

I'd be installing it straight away except for one thing.

Would it be difficult to add an option (or make another version if not) that is more flat? In the sense that menubars (maybe) and all toolbar buttons, except pressed ones, are flat.

thanks,

Trian

Overall this is a great theme, but I have had some difficulty with the icon bar at the bottom of the screen. How do I get that to look like the screen grab? Cheers Jon.

Hi, I am new to Linux but not Unix. I cannot get these themes to work (I am running YDL 3.0.1) . I think my problem lies in where the correct directory or path that these files need to be in? If anyone could help, I'd be very thanksful!

Hi,

Acqua looks great but I have a tiny problem in combination with SuSE 9.0. It installs alright but unfortunately there are distorted colours in the taskbar around the symbols on the left hand side (K-Start menu, shell, home etc.)

In your screenshot you also have a Mac-ish window decoration. Is that also in the package? I have so far not been able to find it.

Otherwise, congratulations on a superb effort :-).

The image shows an OSX-style toolbar at the bottom of the screen (transparent, with "growing" icons). The picture on aronnax's homepage show the regular KDE bar. Does this theme have the OSX-style toolbar? If so, I cannot enable it -- any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
