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

When I install the style (on KDE 2.2 and 3.0) the colours go all weird, like dark greys. Anyone know how to make it appear like osX?

Try the flat toolbar look. It makes this great theme look even better, believe me.

Install. I am running Linux mandrake 8.2 beta and I followed the readme but I can' get itd the theme from the control center and only the icons, wallpaper, and
window decorations changed. But the window decorations did not look like in the screenshot, they looked very plain.

I think your theme rocks but I am a linux newbie so please help me install it. Thanks in advance.

Sorry I'm kinda newbie to Linux,
how can I do that, compile LICQ with KDE support?
I guess that will affect the dialogs use the KDE styles, wouldn' it? So I need to know how to do that(as I think standard compilation looks ugly).
Thanks in advance

Read me:
styles are installed in either..
~/.kde/share/apps/kstyle/ or
~/.kde2/share/apps/kstyle/

the install script only installs
to .kde not .kde2, so, if the style
is not installing...try to open up
the install scripts and add a '2'
without the quotes before the .kde
in all the lines where it exists.
I hope that helps...
also, i found that on my system...
when you pressed a radio button,
there was distortion around the button....i fixed that png and
it can be found at jinksys.envy.nu/radiodown.png.
manually overwrite your
radiodown.png in your
~/.kde/share/apps/kstyle/pixmaps/acqua/
directory. (~/kde2.....blah blah) if you install there.
BTW I run SuSE 7.3....
Also, this theme is the coolest...
it actually does look shiny and glossy...unlike the Liquid style...
who just looks like play-doe

When I try to run the theme install script I get this:

cp: cannot create directory `/root/.kde/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes/': No such
file or directory

Apparently, Mandrake 8.1 creates a different directory structure than your script expects

manually copy the 'Acqua' theme directory to file:/home/bswamina/.kde/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes
and select it in Configure(ICEWM)

Okay, I ran the install scripts, as asked in the read me's, choose IceWM theme in Window decoration, but when I go to configure IceWM, I can't select the Aqua theme!!! Help please. This is a very good looking theme, and I'd like to stick with it...

I installed YellowDog on my iMac because MacOSX would have put the hurt on my poor little 233MHz Rev B iMac. This Acqua interface makes up for some of the glitz I felt I was missing by not running Apples latest reason-to-upgrade-hardware.
Well Done!

I tried a couple of times to install yDOG but could never get it to boot from the CD-Rom etc..

I have an old mac *all in one* would like to get it running...

any pointers?

typically to make a mac boot of a CD you just need to hold the "C" key down when you power it up. It should look for a bootable CD by defualt when it detects the keypress (I hold it in until the happy Mac icon changes to a CD-looking one). This worked for my iMac (original, NOT a revision model). ^_^ I did this when I upgraded the RAM and HDD (changed the 4 for a 10gig).

I've seen many themes in kde which have bubbles around menus and other things, if this theme had those bubbles in blue color (like the scroll bar) it'd reaaaalllyyy rule!
