Styles/Themes


Hello!

I've installed two custom styles/themes to KDE, I installed them using RPMs. THe RPMs installed fine but the themes wont show up in KDE theme manager! (In the Control Centre)

I'm using SuSE 9.3, x86_64.

Does anyone know how I can make this work? Is it a x86_64 issue?

Thanks

UPDATE: I installed kde-artwork and these themes are no appearing either!

Have you tried to install the non-rpm versions?

no but it's SuSE 9.3 RPMs and if they don't work there must be something weird with my system mustn't it?

Only newer theme manager styles show up in the KDE theme manager. Check in the "styles" section under "appearance & themes" for your theme. If the theme includes window decorations and color schemes, they also have to choosen individually from the appropriate section under "appearance & themes".

of course there was no non-rpm version... however I reinstalled it and the theme appeared as a style (not looking correct though, it looked like KDE standard) but other SuSE 9.3 x86_64 users has been able top install this theme (LinspireClear) why can't I?

Ok, I installed the same theme recently. I got the source code from here.
You need to untar the file, change into the extracted directory and then do
Code:
$make -f Makefile.cvs
$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$make
#make install

This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
This will be deleted before making the distribution

*** YOU'RE USING automake (GNU automake) 1.9.5.
*** KDE requires automake 1.6
make[1]: *** [cvs] Fel 1
make: *** [all] Fel 2
I'm running it as myself, ie not root.

New error :P
"checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!"

Any ideas?

Update, the whole error is:
checking for libjpeg6b... no
checking for libjpeg... no
configure: WARNING: libjpeg not found. disable JPEG support.
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!


I do have libjpeg64, libjpeg and qt3 (installed by YaST)

ok after lots of looking I found this on Novell's support

./configure --enable-libsuffix=64

has to be added to older configures.... It configures now but the theme does not show up in KDE control centre...

I am not sure if its a 64 bit problem because the same thing works fine on Suse 9.3 on my system.
