Azenis

KDE 3.5 Themes

Description:

This is a theme based on Azenis, created by JJ Ying (www.jjying.cn). All credits for the artwork goes to him. I only made the port of it. I of course had to alter it a bit because of the limits in Dekorator and Kbfx.

Decompress the Azneins Theme and find the readme.pdf inside. It tells you how to install the theme

What the theme include:

Windeco for Dekorator

Kbfx theme

Font for Kbfx

Wallpaper

Kicker background

Icon backgrounds (for icons in kicker)

KDE Splash theme One with sysinfo and one without.

KDM-Theme This is my first KDM-Theme so don't judge me to hard :P
You will need to install the font (saved by zero) provided in the "Azenis Theme".
I don't know if it works with other resolutions other than 1280X1024.

Cursor-theme (Target) of JJ Ying. I have changed the color and made it smaller than the original.

SuperKaramba-themes:
System info (Base of TechMon-theme) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Tech+Mon?content=31253

Last changelog:

11 years ago

Added a SuperKaramba sysinfo-theme. I used the TechMon-theme as a base.
----------------------------------------------------------
Fixed mistakes in deKorator (Left bottom corner and left top frame). Cant believe I missed that.
----------------------------------------------------------
Made it all into one download because of the complains of the host. Don't know if its better.
----------------------------------------------------------
Found a new host. Don't know for how long it works.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a style for Kclock (super karamaba)
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/KClock?content=66205
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a alternative Kbfx-theme. Made some room for icons in the listbox.
-------------------------------------------------------
Added a Amarok Super Karamba-theme (first screenshot). I used another karamba-theme as a base as I am novice on scripting.

As always, it's not done yet. When I figure out how to make a volume-slider I will finish it. It seems to use a bit of cpu as well. Suggestions are welcome.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added my UT2004 server info-theme for SuperKaramba. It is based on skQstat: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/skQstat?content=19106
Don't know if ppl still play UT2004 but I added it anyway. Maybe someone have some use of it. The only requirement that I remember is qstat that you probably will find in your distros repository.
---------------------------------------------------------
Put all into one download, and made better structure of the theme. I also made a howto in a pdf-format for new comers to Linux. I'm not very good at explaining things but I hope it will due. I also added a OpenOffice.org-splash. There is no room for more screenshots so you need to click on the link to see it
---------------------------------------------------------
As ppl have asked for a color-scheme, I added a color scheme and also a QtCurve-theme because of the color for the scrollbar. Don't forget to save your QtCurve theme if you should not like this one. This will always be separated as its own download.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a background for Liquid Weather (I used "Black Cutouts" as a template to make mine). You need to click on the link to see a preview. I also removed the separate downloads.

If someone request it I will update the howto to cover "Liquid Weather", but You will most likely find info on that on main site for lwp. http://liquidweather.net/

---------------------------------------------------------
Added a Audacious skin. I have put a lot of time to make this, so I hope you like it.

I also updated the screenshot so I can show the most of it. It's not my meaning that you should use all I made as it will be too much.
----------------------------------------------------------
Made a new button at top left on the Audacious-skin (forgot to do that before I released it
----------------------------------------------------------
Something happened to my file on the host. Had to rename some of the files. At the same time I updated the screenshot and uploaded the new Audacious skin which was not updated last time.
----------------------------------------------------------
Updated the Audacious-skin. Added better looking buttons.

Fixed the problem with the decompress. Seems to work now.
----------------------------------------------------------
Fixed the KBFX start button. Also fixed the date for KClock. It was one pix to low (strange, thought I had fixed it before).

The new icons in the screenshot is called Preface (found it some time ago on some site), and is not an icon-theme. I manually changed the icons I use.
----------------------------------------------------------
Found a error in the KDE Splash theme (system). Removed "uname -m" and "uname -a". Will look better for all distros (I think).
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a alternet KBFX theme. To use if you are using more than 1 plugin.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a VU - Skin for Audacious/Xmms (By request).
----------------------------------------------------------

This screen shot is using a custom background image, and only the Clock/SysInfo Karambas provided. The SysInfo Karamba is modified to only show 1 temp(as my system only has 1 temp[temp1] available) and 1 storage device(as my whole system[besides swap] is on 1 partition).

Amazing theme. Hope to see it at #1 on kde-look soon!

Change "CPU Temp" to "temp1" in that line. Might solve it... :)

Looks like someone had a problem with this on page 7 with no help.
I am fairly new to linux. Just installed Debian 5.0 with KDE 3.5.10(stable).
I followed the directions and during the step to install Dekorator-theme.tar.gz to Windows Decorator/Theme, I do "install new theme" and select it and press OK(no error), but it does not appear in the list, and clicking "Set theme paths" does nothing(since there's nothing to select). I "installed new theme" multiple times, and rebooted and tried again, still won't show.
How can I install this? I think, unless I missed something else, this is why I don't have min/max/exit buttons at the top of any windows.

BTW, it's great that you are offering support for so long, I love how the theme looks and can't wait to have it.

I don't know why it doesn't work for you, it should just work as you are doing it right.

You can try this workaround:
Decompress Dekorator-theme.tar.gz Then set the theme's path manually to where you decompressed the theme. See this screenshot [url]Dekorator-theme.tar.gz[/url] It's made for my Xaphire theme, but I guess you can figure it out anyway :)

Np with support :) I just think other ppl reading here could help out with support.

I have been searching for help on forums and irc with no results so askin u Ezy :) I assume your screenshot is showing how to add to 'Image Index' in 'Control Center' under 'System Administration'?? When I go there it says it says GNU GIFT(GNU Image Finding Tool) is not intsalled, and gives a link to it's page on gnu.org. After some trouble installing it from .tar.gz I realized I could apt-get it o.O eheh. I installed it with apt-get (no errors and no suggested packages) but going back to 'Image Index' gives me the same pop-up saying GIFT is not installed. I rebooted and same thing.
Am I on the right track? What do I have to do and what other information would be useful?
Thx

My above 2 posts have nothing to do with this theme.
I got Image Index working, but it is not what I was looking for.

Ezy, do you have any experience with 3.5.10, or just 3.5.9? That might be the problem.
I do not see any tab/window in my Control Center that looks like your screen shot.
Anyway, for now I found I can use another Window Decoration (using KDE2) to get min/max/exit buttons, and still have most of the theme. Everything besides the DeKorator Window Decorations is working.
Still looking forward to getting this fully installed if you have other ideas?

> had to alter it a bit because of the limits in Dekorator

I am currently looking what I can improve in deKorator (for KDE 4). Could you describe what limitations you ran into?

I did not really had to alter it, I was just lazy with the description. What I had to do with Azenis with deKorator was to remove the glow for the buttons and there is some minor error left to the buttons, which I cant resolve. The texture don't line up.

What would like to see in deKorator is ability to move the window title up or down and I also like to be able to have a frame around the window-title (like the old theme Keramik). I have a lot of themes I like to port (have no artistic skills my self), but I cant make them right as it is now, mainly because deKorator does not support transparency (except for the buttons) and you cannot move the window title up or down.

It is probably to much to ask for especially transparency, but moving the window title might be possible? I'm only a noob, and I don't really know how things work. It's to bad I wont see the new deKorator as its now I don't like KDE4. I will continue to use KDE3 as long as the bigger distros support KDE3.

Moving the title is no problem (I already added this to Skulpture 0.2.2), but for real transparency we will have to wait for KDE 4.3.

However, a mask for all pixmaps (like the masks for the round corners) should be possible, but would require an updated deKorator theme format, so you should switch to KDE4 soon :)

I will keep you informed, thanks for your feedback.

I've installed your theme per your detailed instructions. However, I've notice a minor fault. Allthough I'm pretty sure this has something to do with my setup, rather than your theme, maybe you can point me in the right direction of how to solve this.

Here are two screenshots which demonstrate this slight glitch which I have in KBFX. This doesnt happen with the default themes from KBFX. I haven't really tried any other ones yet.

However I can confirm that this glitch shows up on both my desktop and my laptop.


I use Gentoo by the way.

It's not anything wrong with your kbfx. kbfx don't resize automatic. The only thing you can do is to shorten every program-name and remove the "settings-plugin". I'm sorry but it is the only thing you can do.

I could make a update on the kbfx-skin to make it work a little better for all, but I don't have as much time now as I had before, so it will take a while.

Its not the text which is the glitch. I should have probably described it better.

If you take a look at the first image, kbfxtheme1.jpg. The menu looks normal. If you compare it with the second one, you will see that I have scrolled down in the menu. As you can see the "System" entry pulls the bottom part of the menu border with it for some reason.

I'm guessing thats not supposed to happen.
