Description:

Hi all,

What I want to create here is a new breath for the KDE Desktop, taking some goods things from one, combining it with goods from other things to result in a userfriendly, fast and innovative environment!

It is actually a combination of dotNET, GONX and the transparency option from Liquid.
The window decoration is the Pure Orange icewm style.
The icons I used are the Slick ones, but would rather change them to the Crystal ones, or just create my own icons.

Hope you like it, If yes, let me know! (By giving me a good vote!)
If you still want to qive me a bad vote, please let me know, so I can do something about it!

Kind regards,

Reno

v0.2: Changed the color of the window decoration.

v0.3: First upload of the RENODesk Style version 0.1.

v0.4: Changed to the Orange Drop window dec.

v0.5: transparency feature has been added now!

Have fun with it!

One tip! After installation, I suggest to logout/login from KDE...

Hi There, I love this theme but the download link gives me version 0.3 (which doesn't appear to come with a configure script). Where can I grab a copy of the latest version?

Thanks!

I have been trying to get this excellent theme to work for ages and I have finally made it. So here is what I did, written in terms even I can understand :

1) Install automake and autoconf. They are not in the standard Suse installation.
2) Downgrade autoconf to the one from the 7.2 distribution.
3) unzip the tar file using
tar xvzf ladeda.tar.gz
and cd to the new directory it creates.
4) run:
make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde2
su -c "make install"

I just wish someone had written this last week and saved thick newbie me some time.

Having trouble installing this on Suse 7.3. When I run make -f Makefile.cvs I get

make[1]: aclocal: Command not found
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 127
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any help appreciated, because I love the theme.

I really like this theme, but I'm unable to get it installed for some reason. I followed the instructions, using mandrake 8.2. I have the colors available, but that's it. No menus or anything. Got any ideas as to why?

Hi,

As said above, with Mandrake you have to do an additional copy of one file.
Just copy the line below and execute it (as root):
cp /usr/share/applnk/Settings/LookNFeel/renodesktrans.desktop /usr/share/applnk-mdk/Configuration/KDE/LookNFeel/
This installation copies the file in the wrong directory...

Can't wait for the KDE 3 version. So far it looks good and so does your theme. :)

On Slackware 8.0 with Kde 2.2 I got:

checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.

Any suggestions? This happend before with Mosfet's liquid....

Hi,

is RENOdesk KDE3 compatible?
If not, when you'll port it?

Hi,

i love the look of this... (i would use lightShadow-window decorations instead of 3Dnomore)

But when i run configure on Mandrake 8.1 (with --prefix=/usr) I get the following errror:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (libraries) not found. Please check your installation!

Is ist my false?

I had the same problem on Mandrake 8.1 due to using gcc3.0.x Unless the QT libs are compiled with the same compiler, you are unable to compile most QT/KDE things. Either recompile the QT-libs to see if that helps (I didn't try), or remove 3.0.x and update your gcc2.96 to at least gcc2.96-073mdk. That's how I solved it.

You need the QT libraries in order to compile this. It uses QT widgets, and therefore QT headers etc. are needed.
So before you begin to compile it, make sure you have the libqt and the libqt-devel packages installed as well.

The librarys are installed! Including the devel-packages!

Any other idea?

... The --prefix=/usr. Instead set the KDEDIR to the correct one. Then run ./configure.
Maybe it helps...

Yes !

I have been using GONX now for over a month and I am very pleased with it. The combination of GONX and dotNet looks even better. Please make it available for download, because you will atleast one very happy user !

ps. please do not combine it to much with liquid. I use GONX because of the clean look, and thing like transparent menu stuff etc will only create a less "clean" look.
