There's a FreeBSD group here btw,

I sent a message to the admin perhaps he knows what's wrong.

Good day everyone. Does anyone please know which domino theme is the one in the bottom left of the preview screenshot? Does anyone have the domino config file for the theme please? Also, does please anyone have the color scheme file? Thank you very much in advance

Hi, Excellent work!

I like it so much. The only think I would change is to have the possibility to modify the style in the (kicker) taskbar.

Currently, when the mouse moves on top of a taskbar button (application name) the style is "based" on the "header gradient".

It would be nice (if possible) to distinguish header from the taskbar.


Regards,

Sorry for the delay. All credit goes to Michael Lentner, he's a very good coder. You also made a good suggestion, but are you talking about KDE 3.5 or 4.1? The latter replaced kicker and for the moment all I had with plasma were frustrating experiences, they also changed the plasma libraries so I have to look at it in detail again to see what changes need to be done.

Like someone said, it's totally useless if used with no-machine/freenx, because Cpu goes to 100%.
Do you plan to workaround thit issue?

Perhaps you can help me, have you tried KDE4? Is this problem reproduceable with Oxygen too? Any other styles show the same problem or is it just Domino?

I never tried KDE4.x nor oxygen, but with other styles such as qtcurve the issue is not present.

I was not familiar with this issue nor this program. I did a search trying to locate the root of the problem and I found a lot of statements such as these ones:

Quote:
"NX is great - MUCH faster than VNC! But I do NOT recommend using FreeNX unless you want an exercise in frustration, or at least have access to the older client software (that, at least, seems to work, but not perfectly - in particular, I had font display issues when using FreeNX that I could not resolve, even after many hours of effort)."

"While NX is much better at bandwidth, it comes at the expense of CPU usage. All that proxying, caching, compressing, encrypting comes at a cost."

Considering the number of features it has, Domino is already optimized. There's not much (actually nothing) I can do. I did also a search about Oxygen and CPU usage,

Quote:
"During this time Plasma and XOrg are heavily using the CPU. Moving around a window makes again ~58% CPU load (by kwin). Moving the mouse over the taskbar gives me 60% CPU usage by plasma AND 50% CPU usage by XOrg."

The KDE devs seem they have trouble with these issues too, needless to say, I neither possess their knowledge of the internals nor the resources at their disposal, so I'm sorry I won't be able to help. I also won't visit this site for a while like I posted recently, so I'm sorry I can't provide further assistance.

I use nx in a lan with 60 windows Pcs served by a dual xeon@4.2Ghz which gives access to a gentoo installation.
it's just... lighting fast.

Anyway, thanks for answering and keep up the good work.

for porting domino-style to kde4, i also like the new kde4-style, but i used domino since a long time and i like that very much too!
keep up the good work!

Hi, thanks for your comments

You're a lucky guy, I had to reinstall KDE4 plus dev dependencies over 10 times in 2 weeks. Looks stable (relatively) on the surface but whenever I need to install or upgrade a core library everything falls apart. Too many crashes and annoyances for the moment so I'll wait for 4.1 myself.

It would be really really nice if the author of the style can provide the images, like the scrollbars, the buttons, the progressbars, the text fields, so one can edit them..

That's cool, im glad im getting some feedback, i already hacked the progressbar humbly so now it has better contrast. Also I changed the DarkColor function so if you choose the option "Draw Toolbar buttons as buttons" the effect of being a pressed button is more visible , also it works for headers.

Also, is there any way for you to upload the code as in sourceforge or soemthing so ppl can upload their work or at least, to not have to wait for a release in order to see the improvements?


Thanks again

I also considered the sf.net approach since I already have an account there, so development can continue to move forward, think of how the kernel and its patches are distributed, pretty much the same idea. But rather than only patches, I'm trying to figure out a way to allow a more dynamic way of changing the decoration that doesn't involve code editing and recompiling, since a lot of nice decorations are made by non-programmers. Some users already do this by using Domino along with other enhancements and engines such as Emerald. This way you can add as many mods as you want without the risk of breaking the code. It would have to be easy to apply and memory friendly above all.

Probably the best theme ever created. I'll pine for kde4 version... (when?).

Thanks-bye

I'm considering publishing a beta soon, I think it would be safe to say before the release of Hardy Heron and OpenSUSE 11.0 beta1 (mid April). Still, between now and then someone else might post an alternate port much earlier, at least other 2 users are working on their own ports right now, perhaps more.

Me, I don't want to be responsible for another half-finished KDE4 port. I'm writing the entire code from scratch, I chose the hard way because there are some known issues with the style but mostly because I want to take Domino to the next level. I have a couple of ideas that will make the wait worthy.

I really love the domino style, don't use any other, but it has a extremely nasty bug: some buttons don't work, e.g. the lyrics editor button in amarok (you cannot leave the editor anymore, you have to close amarok)!

There seem to be some more of this kind, e.g. the full path of the files in amarok metatags is not shown (only "/home...d.mp3") which works with any other style. And the more-arrows in toolbars don't work most of the time (in 1 of 1000 times it seems to work).

Sorry but I need more details, why are you using checkinstall? Linuxfever made a .deb package if that's what you are looking for.

Workaround for the Location field in the Track Information window: click the <Next> button and then the <Previous> button (or vice versa).

Of course, this only works if you have multiple tracks in the playlist (or multiple tracks selected if you're viewing information for tracks not in the playlist).

I confirmed the second bug as well. I added it to the queue.
The third is not technically a bug, the expander behaves different. Rather than the 'press and release' button behavior it expects a 'press and keep pressed' instead in order to display the menu. Nevertheless I agree, I think it's something that can be improved.
