I have tried to install with rpms and source to no avail. I'm using fedora core 3 and all the install seems to go OK, but when i go into control center -> appearance and themes -> theme manager, is something supposed to come up in there or am i supposed to activate it another way?

Thanks in advance,

Lucas.

hy aolias,

looks like he is complaining about 2 different types of qt 3.3 and 3.2.3
i know i built it on 3.3 so chack yours,
other than that maybe u can build the ui file yourself like this:
"uic ./styledialog.ui > styledialog.h"
"uic -impl ./styledialog.h ./styledialog.ui >styledialog.cpp"

and afterwards continue compiling.

please let me know how it works.
