oops... I was not aware of this cause I use the "Improving KDE" patches with the translucent rubber band... I will look for a way to fix it, but right now it seems this option will have to go away... (I now understand why it was there but disabled in the original plastik code...)

like i before though, the comix style _had_ it ;-) maybe you could find out how they fixed it in that style? good luck!

I noticed some redraw problems that I dont know if they were present in earlier version (I dont think they were). If you select an icon and drag it around the window, it leaves artifacts...little dots. I couldnt use the original plastik theme because of this reason.

I am running KDE.3.3.1 and Qt 3.3.3. ATI 9200SE with built in drivers from Xorg 6.8.1.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Select an icon from a window or desktop.

2. Drag the icon around the screen.

Results in little dots and artifacts and can sometimes distort other icons.

Can be solved with a simple refresh.

I dont know, but it might be the ati drivers causing the glitch... I cant reproduce it with an nvidia.

That really sucks. Plastik is the only theme I have come across that does this, all others do not suffer from this bug...

that screenshot of Gimp, is that actually using the QT toolkit? If so, how?

you can use gtk-qt engine. just search on this site and you'll find it.

For a second, I thought I missed something in Gimp Development...

Thanx for the info, but I am not very fond of gtk-qt. :)

Yeah, it was slow and buggy in the beginning, but now its quite good. For a better gtk-qt, get the cvs version and apply the little patch in "KDE UI Tweaking" on this site.

I have one major complaint: I can only vote once for this entry on kde-look...what the hell?

All joking aside, this is simply phenominal. THANK YOU so much for adding the option to get rid of the highlight on the taskbar buttons...oh man. This is THE theme for me now...unmerge everything else...gone...none need.

You are a marvellous beast! The updates, the work...you dont know how long I have been waiting to be able to scough at my bro and his beautiful gnome themes...now I can blow them all way.

I do have a minor suggestion. The menu items arrows. I think it might look nicer if the arrow also took on the text highlight colour as well, for now, they always remain their initial black.

Everything else is amazing. I also LOVE the scrollbar options you have put in, never got used to the KDE scrollbar type :)

If you mean highlighting the arrows when the mouse is over them, I will try to do it.

Hi,

First of all, awesome merge of all the new features!! It is definitely THE plastik-derivative right now.

Just one comment about the menu stripe for icons (dotnet-style). Is it possible to use a color other than highlight for the background of the strip?

thanks,
Osho

Maybe you should group the settings to groupboxes like every KDE app should? :)

Nice theme anyways.

Hi,

I wrote a ebuild for lipstik-0.90 because this style is so cool!

I'm hoping that with this, more (gentoo) users will use lipstik!

1. Download the ebuild: http://david-peter.de/lipstik-0.90.ebuild
2. Create dir "/usr/local/portage/x11-themes/lipstik"
3. Move the ebuild to that directory, and switch to it
4. Create the digest: "ebuild lipstik-0.90 digest"
5. emerge lipstik (Set ACCEPT_KEYWORDS to ~arch)

Maybe starting 1.0 release, someone should make a gtk2 port of this great style so we can have a great consinstency on our kde boxes as we have with plastik and qtcurve styles:) by the way...this should be kde default theme from now on:D keep up the good work.

No porting. Use the gtk-qt engine.
Its available at http://www.freedesktop.org

I know about gtk-qt engine, but sure it doesn't work as well as a native gtk engine, and however it still needs huge improvements.

A suggestion: The scrollbar groove background is the same as the background of konsole (both white) for me and it gives the scrollbar a very weird look. Could there be a boundary drawn around the scrollbar groove?

thanks,
Osho

Here is my advice, two cents in favor of a SOURCE TREE merge.

Be warned that I don't want lipstick to disappear into a deep and dark thing

-> I liked very much a plastik modification whose name I can't remember :( which drawn the "combo box arrow left part" in "highlighted" color. The result was VERY impressive. There were some other changes like this one which were very good thoughts.

Even if you don't like it, you should recognize that this really made the plastik theme look professional.

What I would really LOVE to see is that "feature" incorporated into lipstick.

This explains why I see no other way than to merge the two source trees.

For my own, I don't think that a well written patch wouldn't make it into the plastik source tree as the author is really a cool person.

Of course, if this kde-look content is only there to be a "popularity test" before providing the patch to the plastik author, than I can only say it is a very good idea ! And I add, try to add the little patch for the colors : when you will see the result you will love it !

Have a great day !
