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

how do I get the cool OS X style "taskbar"?

I'm fairly new at all this, but I can hold me own, so lay it on me!

Thanks.

What means it? During the ./install.sh
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used

But the theme work fine , i think.

A nice theme, but it'd be fantastic if the menu comes with translucency!

Hey people who can't seem get Acqua working after you've configured and installed it. I couldn't get it working either for the longest time, but I finally found it (for me at least). After you've installed it, go to KDE Control Center, go to Apperiences & Themes, go to Window Decorations, and click on IceWM, and then click on the tab Configure [IceWM]. You should see it Acqua there. Hope that helps!

Like a typical clanner, the comment you have just said is lame and irrelevant. I wouldn't go as far as to say this style is infringing legalities on behalf of Apple, because it is not. I am just wondering when would somebody invent a powerful new style better than Aqua or whatever is the best at the time? KDE can do it, if it can copy aqua then it could be the next "aqua". This way KDE would become a cuban cigar rather than a cuban banana, it that analogy sits well in your head.

There's getting an inspiration from somethinge and then there is plagiarizing. This falls totally under Plagiarizing!

There are other ways of doing "water", then going and plagiarizing the whole f00king Apple's Aqua Style.

Not Aqua again! How about making a theme more appealing than Aqua? Stop making KDE what its not. Settle.

thanks for the update.. I had forgotten about this theme. Now I switch to aqua for a while and remember those old days - when you could post comments without logging in, when Crystal icons were only for connectiva (we had marble for kde), no keramik, plastik, etc.

I was looking at the old comments posted up there.. somewhere I saw WinterWolf saying "I think your theme rocks but I am a linux newbie so please help me install it"
LOL!!

I ran the install file and it said the theme was installed, but I can't for the life of me get the theme to show up in the Style selector in Control Center. I've been working at this for quite some time and I'm getting really frusterated. Any ideas would be great.

i had the same problem. what i did was copy each folder manually to it's proper directory (directories are shown in install.sh if viewed as text). then i ran 'kinstalltheme' in the home directory. Voila! Hope this helps.

is there a possibility to have a KDE 3.1 version of this theme? I just upgraded to mandrake 9.1 and installed this theme but it didn't show up in the styles list.

It's a great theme so it would be great to have it.
Thanks

Really nicely done! Sometimes people do something that looks so good, you'd swear you paid for it!! Really, great job!

What about making the buttons smaller, so that they more closely resemble the osx style?
Making them rounder, in a way.

And it has been annoying me for some time, how the text on the menu when selected does not change color.

It would be good if the color could change to white when the background goes blue, instead of just keeping the black.

Exellent idea, if i knew how edit those buttons i would have done it long time ago, can anyone make them a lil more like the real os x or at least like mosfet's shape those are great but this one looks a lil too squarty . Everything else looks great ---Mandrake 9.1.....
