QNiX

KDE 2 Themes

Description:

"QNiX" provides theme engines, for both KWin and KDE2 widgets, based on the QNX/Photon user interface. My aim has been to replicate as closely as possible the QNX GUI, while still providing configurability (through standard KDE colour settings) and performance (by using a C++ based engine instead of using pixmaps).

So, what icon set do people recommend with this style? I find it nice, fast, clean and mean, but everaldo's icons are a bit too overworked for this style (although I love his work, no offence of course :-)

So, who's got some nice suggestions?

I have done what was mentioned in the "Quick FreeBSD Hack" thread (on FreeBSD 4.4) and everything goes fine gmake finishes fine...but when I try to run ./configure, I get the following error:

checking if Qt compiles without flags... no
checking for moc... not found
configure: error: No Qt meta object compiler (moc) found!
Please check whether you installed Qt correctly.
You need to have a running moc binary.
configure tried to run and the test didn't
succeed. If configure shouldn't have tried this one, set
the environment variable MOC to the right one before running
configure.

Any ideas on how to fix this???

I love the theme! I was wondering where you got the application in the middle screenshot. It says "DocLib" in the titlebar.

(from someone who has no idea how to port stuff, someone with more knowledge want to do a real port? (please?!))
I'm the person who was having install problems in FBSD before.
as root, I made a directory in the ports collection called qnix (/usr/ports/x11-wm/qnix). Then I copied the Makefile and the distinfo from the mosfet-liquid port directory (/usr/ports/x11-wm/mosfet-liquid). Then I modified the Makefile and distinfo with the appropriate names for QNiX instead of liquid. I knew that the checksum in distinfo wasn't going to work, and since there was no packing list doing make install wouldn't work either, so first I went ahead and downloaded the source tarball into /usr/ports/distfiles, then ran "make NO_CHECKSUM=YES". This got it all compiled, then I cd'ed to ./work/qnix-0.2 (i downloaded the updated source from del's website), ran "gmake install" and lo and behold, I have the qnix style now!

Yes, it's an extremely ugly and retarded hack, which is why I'm hoping someone with more knowledge than I will port it.

This theme kicks ass. It seems to be a capital offence these days to not like Mosfet's Liquid theme, but this one kicks the lot. Nice one

Your welcome! I struggled with it for a while, and then read the comments about checking the prefix. I poked around for KDE, and found the binaries in /usr/bin and and some directory called /usr/local/kde/lib/. Tried /usr/bin and /usr/local/kde/lib/ for a prefix, but no jow. Then I remembered seeing somwhere about using /usr for some other program, and decided to try it. Bingo! Yee-haw!!!

Also, Mandrake users can get an RPM from pclinuxonline.com, under the Download section.

Cheers! Ty

The above option for prefix=/usr worked great for my 8.1 system. You made my day, thanks!

You've a treat in for you! If you haven't heard of PCLINUXONLINE.com, you check it out! It's a Mandrake-user community site, and the guy who runs it has optomized RPMs for LM. I got the RPM for this theme from there. Works like a beaut!

You should install kdebase-devel.

Try and funny!

I figured it out - the proper prefix for Mandrake 8.x, that is. Mandrake doesn't keep KDE in /opt/kde2, but rather treasts it as essential system binaries, this spread out through /usr. So for Mandrake 8.x users (don't know about 7.x, probably the same, though) set your prefix to /usr. To wit:
./configure --prefix=/usr -
make -
su -
make install -

I used : make -f Makefile.cvs; then ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde2 followed by: make install
This is what worked for me.

The KDE3 CVS deals with automake 1.5 just fine. To use the CVS's automake magic:

1) Change to QNiX's admin directory
2) Change the line in CVS/Root that says:
:pserver:mosfet@cvs.kde.org:/home/kde
To:
:pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.kde.org:/home/kde
3) cvs -z3 update
4) Change back to QNiX's root directory and run make -f Makefile.cvs
