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

Tried to install Aqua (changed the scripts to refer to .kde2/ instead of .kde/). But whenever I enable Aqua style from the KDE control center I get corrupted windows, dialog boxes, tool tips, etc. Anybody successfully installed Acqua on SuSE 7.3? Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Almost makes me consider getting a Mac next time around... Ehh, probably not. Of course, if they ever put out OS X.1 for PCs, I'm there...

To get the buttons and scrollbar to work correctly, you must also install the aqua style. The tarball contains two subdirectories. You must go into each of them and install them (see the readme in each). The one ending in style contains scrollbar information.

Ok, buttons and scroll bars work on mostapps, but not all.. strange. On RH7.3 running Evolution or Opera, neither show the correct "decorations", but other apps do. How do you fix this?

The reason that the KDE styles do not get applied to Evolution & Opera is because they are not native KDE applications.

Evolution is a Gnome application and as such it's widgets will be styled according to the settings in the Gnome Control Center (gnomecc).

I'm not sure what widget toolkit Opera uses, but again, it is not a native KDE app, therefore it's widgets are not styled by KDE.

Hey person who couldn't get Acqua working. 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!

P.S. If that doesn't work, e-mail me at johntkesselring-at-hotmail.com and I'll try to help you out more.
Of course, take the -at- out and place in a @

Gorgeous sense of texture to everything... just hard to get used to foreground windows being light blue and background being dark blue.
