In your source download, could you update your /admin/ directory and your Makefile.cvs using something more recent such as kdebase/admin/?
I had to replace mine in order to perform the make -f Makefile.cvs.
Just a minor detail though.

OK, NO PROBLEM

Highlight? It begins and ends when you enter the button. And when you leave it highlights again?? Strange behavior.
I would expect it to hightlight while hovering, and then de-highlight when you leave.
It may be some bad animation code or something.

NOW HERE I DIDNT GET ANY THING ABOUT WAHT U R SAYING, R U REFAING TO WINDECO OR THE STYLE?

Area behind application icons and buttons doesn't line up correctly for me. :\

WELL IT WORKS FOR ME SO I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO TELL U :-(

Good luck on your work and nice job with incorporating spasemunkie's progress bars!

I was referring to the style. For example the buttons in kcontrol that are Apply, Reset, Defaults.
I've dealt with animation problems like that in my windeco, but I've no experience in styles, so I can't really tell you where the problem might be in the code.

I'll post a pic of the buttons/app icons with the background that doesn't line up as soon as I can.

I can't get this to install. I try to open it in the Theme Installer in the KDE Control Center, but it doesn't recognize it as a Theme File.

Is there a SuSE 9.2 RPM out there for this theme?

I'm having trouble installing this with the following message on the ./configure
__
Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
__

I've tried using ./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 with no success

Any helpful comments appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Sorry to see it doesn't effect all apps, such as Konqueror.

Or is it because I'm running KDE 3.4 Beta2?
