Unhappy Aqua Linux


Hey all! ie found a great window decoration in this adress:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=5085

But there one problem: it doesn't seems to include the aqua-style (buttons, scrollbar, etc)! How can i activate it if it exists on the theme? If it don't, where can a find a really good (read: accurate) aqua style??

Help!

Oh, i forgot. It's Slackware 9, KDE 3.1. And i've searched those menus. In Windows Decoration i can see the Aqua Win theme, but in Styles nothing appears, only the default themes. So i got a window with Aqua titlebar and Keramik buttons/scrollbar, and that's ugly! Any ideas?

what do you want then? icons? you would have to download the icon theme separately and install it. I did that and I have the aqua (among other) themes for my icons.
see here:

No, no! I have the icons! The screenshot in the theme from the first link shows TWO different things

1. Window Decorations: it is only the title bar, where the open, close and maximize buttons appear, you can configure it in Control Center > Appearence & Themes > Windows Decorations. I GOT this when i installed the theme.

2. Styles: the styles sets the looks for button, scrollbar and menubar's background. I DON'T GOT THIS when i installed the theme. I've opened the Control Center > Appearence & Themes > Style dialog, and it DOES NOT shows a aqua style. What i want is to know if the theme has these and they were not activated OR, if they are not included in the theme, where can i get a Aqua Style to complete my Aqua look. Can anyone help me with this?

BTW, thanks for the icons link, they're better than the ones i have!

Look for Mosfet's Liquid engine for KDE.

You might have to go under window styles, then I believe there is a tab saying window manager choose ICEWM and then you should be able to see Aqua, I haven't used KDE 3.1 lately but this is where you had to go in KDE 3.0.

Red face Is it mandrake

if you're using mdk9 for this, I had the same problem... I went to install the liquid style and it did get installed to the correct location(says the readme) but it wasn't showing up in KDE's preferences, just symlink it from where it installs it to where KDE on MDK looks for it, which if memory serves me correctly it's just the ~/.kde/something dir.. good luck, i'm not much help

IT's cause im stoned, does the kwin dir ring a bell, maybe that's for window decorations.. what ever, im not on a linux box right now.......

Anyone know if there exists a version of the whole aqua GUI that's been ported to Linux? I've been looking for one for a while. And, while these themes for KDE and GNOME are nice, it's not AQUA. Any news?

I highly doubt there's going to be an Aqua GUI for Linux.

It took Apple years to develop that.

Wysiwyg:

1. That theme is old, so if you're using a newer version on KDE, it may not be compatable.

2. during the "./configure", make sure you use "--prefix=" to designate the proper PATH to KDE.


EDIT: I just realized how old this thread is. Damn you people for sucking me in.
