I like this theme.
Window style works good in my suse 9.2.
I can find a name like "metal4kde" in my
window styles list.
But I can't find a name like
"metal4kde" in my window decorations list.

Downloaded the mdk RPM but it did nothing.

Cant find it in styles or themes.

Any suggestions??

The RPM installs all components in /usr/lib/kde3/plugins, and all documents are installed in /usr/share/doc/kde-style-metal4kde-0.1g. There is a readme and todo file. I haven't read either one yet, but one must say something about why neither one of us can see the new theme in KDE Control Center. BTW, go to a terminal program and login as root (su). Type in your root password. Type: updatedb at the command line. This will update the database of all installed files for Mandrake. This will take time if you never did it before. When it's done chugging away, use this command: locate metal4*. It's a fast way to find stuff! locate (file name) is a great tool but you should updatedb often if you add/remove files and apps. Good Luck!

Metal4kde looks very good. I like it.
But I it produces a small problem.
I can't start OpenOffice2 beta when Metal4kde is enabled. This results in an OpenOffice crash.

Changing to another Style than Metal4KDE -> everything is alright again.

What could be responsible for.

Great Style!!!
But only one thing: strange behaviour (at least for me) when menu effects (animate, transparence, etc) are enabled.
The metal background of menu disappear when i pass on with mouse, or (konqueror popup menu) do not appear.

If you can fix this this will become my favourite style!

Hi Onus,

the theme is called cynapses or something similar to that, for that to run u'll need karamba or super karamba,
all the stuff mention above can be found on this site.
