Description:

*********************
ANTICO DEVELOPMENT IS ENDED (I SWITCHED TO MAC OS X).
I'M AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE ANY CLARIFICATION TO ALL INTERESTED DEVELOPERS TO CONTINUE THE PROJECT.
*********************

Antico is a Qt4/X11 Desktop/Window Manager (i.e. KDE+KWin).
The goal is to create a Desktop/Window manager simple and fast. All parameters must be configured from few files, avoiding unnecessary complications, following the K.I.S.S. philosophy.
The whole project is based only on Qt4 libraries, without any other external dependencies (e.g. kdelibs ...).

**********
FEATURES
**********

The whole application is based on "antico.cfg" file.
Frame border dimension, color, pixmap, desk wallpaper are managed from "Manager" panel.
The style is selected from "Manager" and save in a xxx.stl file: if you want to share your personal style, save the directory and send it.
General style (Oxygen, Plastique ..), fonts family and size, window background etc. can be selected from "qtconfig".
See "git commits" on repository ...

To run the window manager:

Sorry, but because of my mistake I forgot to remove the string DESTDIR += bin from “antico.pro” file.
So remove it, and for the test the string is:
Xephyr: 1-ac-screen 1000×800 & DISPLAY =: 1, $ HOME /antico/antico
and not
Xephyr: 1-ac-screen 1000×800 & DISPLAY =: 1, $ HOME /antico/bin/antico

Cheers

This is the project I've always dreamed to have time to do.
Congratulations, and I wish you a lot of success, a Qt4 based simple DE will sure be used by a lot of people.
