There's some problem with this style not applying to 32 bit gtk apps on a my 64 bit Gentoo system using the qt gtk engine. (gtk-engines-qt-0.7)

Plastik and other themes seem to work fine, and the only error I see when starting these apps is:

KThemeStyle cache seems corrupt!

Hello. I like the color combobox handle option, but could it be done in a way that is "on" only on mouseover?

Many thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Norberto

Hmm... You still run KDE 3.0.6? Thats why. Plastik windeco changed in between KDE 3.4 -> 3.5 (or 3.3 -> 3.4, i cant remember).

How did you get the effect in your second screenshot?

It seems that the background window become darker or transparent. Also all your windows have shadows. How did you do that?

Awesome style!

Its the Composite extension with KDE's kompmgr at work. You need to enable it in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and then in KWin configuration panel. Its nice but not quite fast/stable enough for eveyday use, yet. Consider this for now as a nice marketing trick :)

When using Lipstik 2.2 in Kubuntu 5.10 with KDE 3.5.1, the "Applet handles" in my kicker aren't transparent. (I.E. colored plain in the background color and only blending in without a kicker wallpaper and when transparent is off)
Reverting to Lipstik 2.1 solves the problem, and I'm fine with using that. However, is anyone else experiencing this? And can it be fixed?

Thanks for the report.

what about stripe in transparent menus? i liked it:)
that's why i'm still using lipstik

Report

That's why I'm using lipstik, too - it's all because of the sexy menu stripe!

But it's gone in 2.2 - there's either a fadeout gradient or a solid colour, neither of which are anywhere near as nice.
You should have kept the option for the slight gradient bordered by the 1px hard line... that's what I had before I upgraded to 2.2, and that's why I was using lipstik in the first place.

Hmmm... I will take a look at this... I did not noticed that the stripe rendering had changed... New version coming soon.

Ah, cool!

I've stuck together some screenshots in case it's any help to you:

http://yellowmackerel.co.uk/forum/lipstik-menus.png

The top one is the old style, and the bottom two are the closest I could get with the new style. Also, you can see that nice xrender thing working alongside the stripe in the old version. Pity about that :(

I have not been able to make it work... I guess it will have to wait until a Qt4/KDE4 port where the rendering capabilities will be more advanced.

I think this is the best style of all. The only thing I wish to be added is the sliders for volumes, etc., to be as the little option but more beautiful and that can be colorized with the title bar color.
