Hey, this looks gorgeous, but I have a problem getting title bars display black&nice - do I need something more than standard qtcurve stuff Kubuntu comes with?

I got it working by installing color scheme -- coming from Gnome I'm a KDE newbie I guess :-) I simply assumed the theme is all there needs to be applied.
Thanks for great theme, still using it :-)

thx a lot :)

first, if not done yet, you have to install qtcurve style for kde4 and gtk apps + qtcurve window decoration
[link]

than open kde systemsettings, appearance settings and choose qtcurve style. click the setup-button right besides. click the import button and import the qtcurve-file. for the striped image, plz read the howto :)

if there are some questions more, plz ask

Hi narf, just taking your word about help. I'm having some trouble setting it up. First I have this hideous white margin about my sites. Tried to set all color settings to transparent (Except background, that is set to grey) to no avail. Also, I cant find any way to make the sites appear centered, like you have.

Thanks in advance man.

hi :)

1. plz make a screenshot so i can see what you mean

2. it´s just drag and drop
e.g. i have 6 icons in one line
so i choose 8 rows in the setting, and e.g. 5 lines
than i drag and drop the sites or folders to the position i want to have them

Amazing is hardly the adjective to describe this theme. I am seriously thinking of switching from Gnome to KDE. Just a few questions about though:
Are those default KDE icons or what? They are great, anyway.
Does KDE have only close button (like Gnome 3) or what?

Thanks!

thx thx thx, really appreciate it :)
icons are faenza, kde has an option to give effects like coloring to the icons.
no, you can choose which buttons do you want to use. but, i just need the close button. no, i do not need even the close-button, but it looks better with it lol. you can have the buttons you need, it´s not like in gnome

Hey, I'm totally new to KDE!

Okay, some questions:

So, how do I colorize the icons? I pretty much want to copy your icons, for now!
And what's the plasma theme?

Actually, I prefer having just the close button in the title bar too. And I loved gnome-3. I don't find having a maximize button as necessary (or even useful). I have grown used to the mouse gestures and/or double clicking the title bar. But how do you work without minimize? Is there an easy way to switch between desktops? (Something like Gnome 3 perhaps?)

Oh and how do I use emerald themes with KDE? I really loved the setup in which you used Droid emerald theme. I heard it had something to do with Kwin, but unfortunately could find out how....

Lastly, some criticism. I really think the menus need some work ;)
(Not sure if it's a Qtcurve/KDE limitation or what)

For colorizing Icons
1. [link]
klick on "Set effect"
2. [link]

For Emerald Themes in KDE4 [link]

I switch between desktops with the mouse-wheel or with mousegestures or with keyboard shortscuts, i defined some possibilities :D

And i minimize windows almost never. If i want to do it, i use a click on the icon in smoothtasks-plasmoid.

Well, setting up the menu-look is really limited in qtcurve. which ideas do you have, maybe it´s possible to realize them. :)

xantheil Featured By Owner May 25, 2011
Ah, thanks ;)

About the menus: I actually checked out the options in qtcurve and well, that's the problem. It can't use custom images as background or highlight! :(

Round edges and no support for custom images? Odd!

narf41 Featured By Owner May 26, 2011
well, there are limitations, but all in all i love qtcurve :)
but, you can send wishes to the developer on kde-look.org. just search for qtcurve in themes

Oh, btw, welcome back. It's been long since I last saw you. Presumed you died, or the passion did ;)

And does KDE still have those annoying K in front of all applications?

Woah! How do you install a theme in KDE? How do you even install software in Kubuntu? KDE is too complex :(

I beleive that Kpackagekit is the alternative for Ubuntu Software Center. But I can't manage to install software, or even see available software. I can only see the installed software ;(

I know that's way off topic, but could you do a How-To to install your theme? I switched from Gnome to KDE to try it :P

Welches Plasma-Theme ist das? Und ist die Leiste unten was Besonderes oder ne ganz normale KDE-Kontrollleiste, nur verkleinert?
Sieht nämlich alles super aus :)

Which Plasma-Theme did you use? And what's that bar in the bottom? Looks very nice =)

Danke sehr :D

Plasma Theme ist Eigenbau, kann es dir per Mail senden. Allerdings evtl. nicht für alle Plasmoiden einsetzbar ;)
Die Desk-Plasmoiden sind verlaufend, oberes Panel ist undurchsichtig, die anderen transparent.
Hier ist zu sehen, wie die Desktop-Plamoiden aussehen [link]

Unten ist einfach ein kleineres Panel mit Smooth-Tasks-Plasmoid und CWP (Wetter)

A question: how to get your great fast dial startpage? Is there any link you can provide me, or you did it by yourself?
If so, could you please let me know how to emulate it? I would be very glad if I can use such a coool startpage! :)

narf41 Featured By Owner May 19, 2011
fastdial is a firefox addon. i just changed the background and i use some faenza icons for the subfolders (categories).
it´s nothing special, you can get it on the firefox addon site :)

I don't know why but fastdial was too difficult in setting some aspects of the page.. anyway I solved doing the page manually!

Check here [link] if you want to see it.. It's not as cool as yours, but it works :)

However, thanks for the reply! :)

Nice, bro :D
Well, the icons on my first startpage are subfolders.
Whats your prob with fastdial, maybe i can help you solving it?

alecive Featured By Owner May 25, 2011   Interface Designer
I succeeded in associating an icon to each link, but I failed in positioning: all icons were in the top left of the fastdial page, giving a bad effect since I would them in the center of the page.. how do you solve this issue?

However, I'm quite fine with my solution.. as far as I know about html, it works! :)

also you have an entry in the firefox right click menu to add sites to fastdial startpage or fastdial subfolders
