Sorry, my browser inserted double posts and I don't see any button to delete my duplicate comments. - May 26 2009
It's going good, thanks for asking! Actually I have brought it to a point of stability where it was quite usable and I was happy with it. Some of our users started to use it and they loved it. It had just one small problem: every time I did any modification to the theme, however small it would be, like changing a color, the themeing engine had to be recompiled.

So recently I abandoned the whole thing and started from scratch. Now it must be recompiled only for major changes, like adding a widget or radically changing properties and behavior. It has caught up quite well to old version, but it suffered regressions in the rewriting and is not so mature yet, but on the other hand it has some small visual tweaks that made it IMO a lot prettier.

Anyway, the themeing engine and the Skulpture theme with two color schemes are available to the U++ framework (http://www.ultimatepp.org/) under BSD license in it's extra packages repository. I would call it a beta, but soon it is going to be stable. Here is a screenshot. Keep in mind that it is a different new theme that was implemented for a completely different themeing engine and framework, so it will have it's fair share of differences. I accept any criticism or suggestions:

Hi!

I think that in previous version of Skulpture you had two different kinds of skins for ComboBox controls: one for editable ones and one for just list box ones. Or am I remembering wrong? My implementation has such differences and I havn't updated CombBoxes with 0.2.2 yet.

Yet in 0.2.2 I see that all ComboBoxes and other controls that behave like a text field with one or more buttons for accessing drop down lists have an unified theme.

Should I eliminate the removed ComboBox skin?

Thank You,

Hi!

New version looks really great! I love the small subtle changes you made, and especially the not to subtle changes to Radio boxes ans Option boxes.

I was wondering if now is the right time to update my port of your theme. Are you expecting any larger changes in the near future or is this pretty much the way it is going to look from now on?

I also have another question: could you be bothered to include a small precompiled demo application which shows all widgets with their look for all states? For KDE4 is still not as easy as for 3 to set up a development environment, find dev packages for you distro, install Kdevelop4, etc. Or if you already know of such an application. This would make things easier for people wanting to port it while not having to either go though the surprisingly huge code or though dozens of dialogs in different applications and shouldn't be more complicated than dropping some widgets on a window and setting some properties (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Thank You - Feb 08 2009
Hi!

I pretty much managed to get an early prototype of the theme. It is not as pretty as yours, because the current theming engine does not really support those superimposed shadows that you use around borders. But it is slowly getting there.

I still need to fix some visual bugs, but soon I'll prepare a small demo. I'll post you a link so you can check it out if you desire, just to make sure that I have not completely butchered your creation :P.

Source distribution is not that easy for end user right now, but I can easily prepare a binary if you tell me you Linux disto name and version. Or if you prefer Windows binary, or even a rebuild from source... - Oct 15 2008
Greetings Skulptor!

Let me start with saying that this is a great looking style, which I find quite pleasing to the eye, especially since it looks so stylish yet classical. It is also great that it is available in multiple colors

I would love to use your style. The problem is that I'm not using KDE4, or KDE for that matter.

I want to use it under a completely different theming engine and I have no idea how the GPL license applies to this. I wouldn't be using anything directly from you theme, neither code or resource, so it wouldn't be derived software. Still, it would you the artistic direction you've given your theme, so I would considered it a derived entity.

So first of all I would like to ask you if you have anything against your theme being used under a different theming engine. And then I would like to know if you have nay idea how GPL applies to themes, especially in the context I have mentioned.

Thank you,
Tail
