hi,
i've just created qinx rpm for my personal use on my mdk8.2/kde3.0.4 (KDE home in /opt/kde3) with checkinstall.
it works fine here, so if anyone insists on mdk8.2 like me and is interested in this rpm package, let me know... i'll put it somewhere.

like to get ahold of that RPM. I am using a backup harddrive at the moment with RH8 on it, but there isn't enough free space left to install all the development tools I need to compile apps : (

Qinx is my default style desktop since I saw first time. Professional and clean look. Thanks a lot.

Has anyone successfully compile/installed this theme on a Mandrake system? If so, can you give us the correct configuration options that you gave at the command line (./configure ?????). Thanks ahead of time.

The following should work on all distributions and systems:

1) Make sure you have the Qt and KDE development packages installed.

2) Execute "kde-config -prefix" to make sure it exists. You should get an output specifying your KDE installation prefix, such as /opt/kde, /usr/local, etc. If this works, go on to the next step.

3) Configure using the following line:
/configure --prefix=`kde-config -prefix`

4) If you still have problems, it is probably because your distro has done some weird stuff with Qt or KDE installation locations. If so, talk to your distro. Qinx should build and install identically to any other KDE-3 source package.

When attempting to install this RPM it states that this RPM needs these files - libXft.so.2 and libfontconfig.so.1. I don't appear to have these files, they are not on my mdk9 download edition and neither are they available from rpmfind.net. I've never had so much trouble installing a style :(

Oho, KDE-style scroll arrows! Thank you. That makes this style much more functional.

I tried to compile this theme, but I failed. I can't figure out, what's going wrong.

When I try to run configure, it fails and I recieve the error "Can't find Qt>=3.0.2. (qt-mt library not found). Check your installation".

But, actually, I have Qt 3.0.4, and I have qt-mt!

Qt installed to /usr/lib/qt-3.0.4 (/usr/lib/qt symlinked to /usr/lib/qt-3.0.4)

so I have libqt-mt in /usr/lib/qt/lib, and I have a corresponding line in /etc/ld.so.conf

I also tried to run configure with args, for example
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt

but it produces all the same error

My system - Slackware 8.1, KDE & Qt installed with installpkg.

Please help...

PS. Sorry for my English, it isn't my mother tongue 8)

many KDE script search for LD_LIBRARY_PATH
but slackware doesn't initialize the variable
solution:
open the file /etc/profile.d/qt.sh
and add the lines:

if [ ! "$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" = "" ]; then
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
else
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib
fi
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

save the file and reboot your system
Now, I hope you can compile QNX
Nice theme

Nice theme, small problem with menus with no icons however. It looks like the width isn't being calculated properly:

How strange. The menus work for me on two different systems. Your screenshot appears to be a menu from Konqueror-with-tabs. If this is so, do you still get the same problem with kde-3.0.2? Please email me with particulars so I can nail this one down.

Great screenshots :)

I compiled it for kde3 in mandrake 8.2 using the 2.96 gcc. I installed it onto /opt/kde3 and although everithing went apparently allright, the style doesn't showup in kcontrol.

The window decoration appears in kcontrol, but when selected chooses kDE2 default window decoration.

I must be missing something...

A great theme so far. Could the "mouseover" highlight around the name of each menu appear recessed instead of raised? And the menus themselves still need some work-- perhaps a recessed gradient highlight, instead of a solid color. (And could the menu itself have a slight gradient?)

My only other suggestion would be making the title bars more like QNiX-- put a vertical line to the right of the top left button, and keep the horizontal lines at the top and bottom on the inactive title bar. (Not sure if this is how Photon does it or not, but I liked it from QNiX...)

Anyway, great job-- we _definitely_ needed a QNiX port to KDE 3. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestions. My goal in this theme is to make it look as much like Photon as possible. Most of the differences are due to Qt/KDE constraints or difficulty in implementation.

But I will keep your suggestions in mind though the next time I pull out Qinx to work on.

Excellent work! With the addition of adjustable gradients, this theme tops QNiX IMHO. (I like very strong gradients :)

I have a feature request. It's something that several of the other styles already do: dual scroll arrows. For those of us without mouse wheels, having the up/left scroll arrows right next to the bottom/right scroll arrows is immeasurably useful.

Thanks for the suggestion. I chose to follow the Photon way instead of the KDE or Next way for the scroll bars. I don't want to create a dedicated Control Center module for the Qinx style, so I need to hardcode this in. But I understand your rationale and will ponder it.
