KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by svenhoek 5 comments

Read the original Mandrake Galaxy theme thread for info on my success at getting the whole package working. It may or may not work for you, but it's worth a shot anyway. - Dec 19 2003

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by bouveyron 29 comments

I've successfully compiled the source for the Mandrake Galaxy theme on Slackware Linux 9.0. There was nothing special about the compilation. I just grabbed the source for it from...

ftp://mirrors.secsup.org/pub/linux/mandrake/Mandrake/9.2/SRPMS/galaxy-0.9.4-14mdk.src.rpm

and extracted/installed it using KPackage, without the Check Dependencies option on. It installed the sources to /usr/src/rpm/SOURCES/, then I ran...

tar -xjf galaxy-0.9.4.tar.bz2

and ran the ./configure script, did a 'make', then 'make install', while in a root console.

After installing I logged out of X/KDE and logged back in, and went into the Appearances area, and selected it as my theme for everything and voila, it worked! I think those users using older versions of Slack or other distro's may just need to update the components that the theme needs/uses to compile it. I imagine that users with Slackware 9.1 or fairly new versions of their distro will also be able to compile this theme in the same fashion.

Hope this helps some of you folks out there. - Dec 19 2003
