It's the nuvola icon set (www.icon-king.com) and the lipstik style (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=18223)

my linux is fedora 3. when I try "./confgure", it says that I need to install "kdelibs" first.
but I have install kdelibs rpm.
"rpm -q kdelibs" gives
kdelibs-3.3.1-2.9.FC3

what should I do to install this theme?

thank you very much.

I dont know Fedora much, but if it is like it was before, in older Redhat's distros, please make sure you also installed kdelibs-devel before compiling. You will also need qt-devel or something like that...

Start Control Center,
go to :

Appearance & Themes -> Style

There will be a "Configure" button,

In the Lipstik configuration module:

In a group box called "Scrollbars and Sliders",
there is a combobox called "Slider handle size"

You can choose your preferred handle style there.

Have a nice day!

If you can make the fonts have "shadow-text" property then Lipstik would be number1 for me.
Thanks for your efforts...

I will see what I can do, but for now I prefer to keep it simple.

Maybe in Lipstik 2.0 :)

Ok the INSTALL file tells us how to compile and "install" it. But how do you actually activate it in kde? I went to the theme manager, but its not there.. I have kde 3.3 by the way.

It would help if you tell what distro you are using. These problems are mostly related to configure not setting the right KDE base dir.

Find a program called kde-config on your system, then run this:
configure --prefix=`/path/to/this/program/kde-config --prefix`

/path/to/this/program could /opt/kde, /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, etc.

Note: you must use ` not '

Have a nice day!

PS: I said its important to know what distro you use because some distros might be using some weird places to store styles, etc. Maybe someone using your distro will be able to help you.

I just noticed you mentionned "Theme manager"... Go to Appearance & Themes -> Styles in the Control Center if thats what you meant...

For more good look you can add animation to CheckBox and RadioButton like in Zeta (Beos)!!!!!

It would be too much I think, i want to keep the style fast, and adding animation in widgets that, really, dont need it would only slow down lipstik.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion!

Odd... whenever I try to install this style and Krisp, I can't. Say I install Lipstik and then install Krisp; Lipstik is gone now. Same for trying it in the other order. I like both these styles and wanted to see what they look like first-hand. I got my answer for that, but encountered this strange behaviour. Any ideas?

Hi,

thank you for this great style. I used ActiveHeart for a long time before I tried Lipstik 0.1. Now Lipstik is my favorite.

You changed the menu stripe in version 1.1, but in my opinion the menu stripe in 1.0 looked better. Would it be possible to insert an option into the settings dialogue for changing between the old and the new menu stripe style? That would be really great!


I wish all of you a happy new year,
Lenz.

I'm running into the same problem. I rmp -ivh it and it didn't complain. However, my theme manager still shows no themes at all.

Yes, it looks really impresive but I simply can't install it properly. Mainly, ./configure, make and make install doesn't show any errors but the style is still not available in the styles list. What goes wrong?

If you use debian configure with --prefix /usr (./configure --prefix=/usr)
