2007-10-22: No update of the theme, just an update of the URL.

0.5: 2006-03-26
- Includes KBFX themes for the kicker sizes tiny, small, normal and large.
- New and GPLed wallpaper.
- Changed color scheme.

0.4: 2006-03-05

- Contains screenshots of all configuration pages for the crystal window decoration.
- Corrected link to Taskbar V2

0.3: 2006-03-05

- QtCurve 0.34 was released and flat colored menu bars are working again in GTK applications.
- FIX: Wrong schema name in embassy.qtcurve file prevented upload.

0.2: 2006-03-05

Due to a bug in QtCurve 0.33, colored menu bars do not work in GTK applications. However there seems to be another bug that does not apply gradients to menu bars, but does a flat coloring and this also works in GTK applications. So the new archive contains a different QtCurve scheme that applies the gradient to the menu bar. Note that this is a workaround for QtCurve 0.33 and may behave different in older and future versions of QtCurve (Craig Drummond is already aware of this).

Hi,

Downloaded the Embassy theme - and have installed crystal (from the suse rpm), Qt-curve (0.34), Vista-Inspirate.

Problems:

1.) can't see how to install Taskbar V2 on SuSE (download only supplies a .deb package)

2.) Instructions for configuring Crystal points to screenshot - when I compare to my options I don't see any decoration options.

3.) Can't get the toolbar, and menu bar to be the same colour (or look anything like the screenshots).

Apart from that, it's great ;)

Jon.

You can find Taskbar v2 from yast sources (add packman and guru).

Hi Yaba, Fri13, and dralgebra (crystal developer).

Thanks for all your help. I was having trouble compiling crystal (installing the guru RPMs "fixed" that). I also grabbed taskbar v2 (mtaskbar). Now everything is sweet. Well almost......how do you configure taskbar v2????

Cheers, Jon.

Right click on the handle of the Taskbar V2 menu (assuming you already added it to the kicker and select Taskbar v2 Menu -> Advanced Options...

Hi,

Sorry about this, I feel like a bit of a fukwit having all these problems. I installed mtaskbar from the suse guru RPMs (version 0.7-3). Should I add it as an applet? If so I get the following error: applet could not be loaded. please check your installation.

Is this something you've found before?

Thanks for your help.

Jon.

I haven't experienced this, but I compiled Taskbar v2 myself.

Have you upgraded to KDE 3.5.x? Sometimes I experience incompatibilities between Guru/Packman RPMs and KDE 3.5. As workaround you have to compile it by yourself.

No,

Vanilla 3.4 - I'll try compiling.

1.) can't see how to install Taskbar V2 on SuSE (download only supplies a .deb package)

Oops! I used the wrong link. Updated it on my homepage. Here is the correct one: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=16261

2.) Instructions for configuring Crystal points to screenshot - when I compare to my options I don't see any decoration options.

Version 0.4 contains screenshots of all crystal option pages. Hope this helps.


3.) Can't get the toolbar, and menu bar to be the same colour (or look anything like the screenshots).

Have you imported the embassy.qtcurve file into QtCurve?

Currently this theme only includes the color scheme shown in the screenshot, but I already thought of providing different color schemes.

Maybe...

Sometime....

Don't know yet.... ;-)

I enjoyed too much this theme! But... what window decoration is that? I'd appreciate to know because it matches very well with the theme.

Thanks!

It's crystal. Follow the download link and you will find it listed under prerequisites along with a link to it. It's also mentioned in the included README file.
