Awesome work! Porting icon themes takes *forever*, doesn't it?

Request: korganizer/kmail/kontact action icons. I haven't looked through the theme so I don't know whether this would be difficult or not, but I hope it's not too bad! Maybe there's evolution icons for it?

Also dolphin toolbar action buttons, please!

I also have some custom icons, if you want them:
Mendeley Desktop
Konversation message notifier
ApE (semi-obscure science app)

Just ask and I'll send them/upload them! - Jun 05 2011

I made a konversation systray notification icon (for new messages/alerts). Is it OK if I send it to you? My email is just my kde-look nick at gmail. - Dec 20 2010
Merry Christmas to you, too!

When I unzip + untar the source archive and run find -type l, I don't see anything (no links!). Maybe the links are getting removed at some point, if you're using a build script?

And now that I think about it, so long as Inherits=Faenza is in there, integration will still work. So... that's cool. No need to force people to install the original Faenza, but integration will work better if they already have it. Nifty. - Dec 18 2010
Sorry, this is really my last random statement, I swear!

If you inherit Faenza or even Faenza-Cupertino, this will essentially make your theme entirely cross-platform (GTK/GNOME and KDE). All a user will have to do is select this as their gtk icon set and their KDE iconset and everything will work perfectly. This would benefit GNOME users using KDE apps just as much as KDE users using GTK apps! - Dec 16 2010
Ah, and when you do change the name, I recommend staying away from 'Faenza-Cupertino', as that would conflict with the Faenza Cupertino iconset. Maybe 'Faenza-Cupertino-KDE'? - Dec 16 2010
Thanks for the port! Just a couple requests!

1) I know you know about it already, but conflicting with Faenza is really a problem. Please update the index/folder name soon! It makes automating any integration with GTK apps simply impossible (you can have Faenza for gtk or KDE, but not both without editing the index).

2) You can save a lot of file size by doing two things:

First, inherit the Faenza icon theme itself and only replace the icons that differ (like Faenza Cupertino does by default). Just add 'Faenza' to your Inherits= line in the index.theme. This will only work after you change the theme name. A downside is that everyone will have to download both Faenza and your package, but it does make it super easy to distribute (I would put it on archlinux's aur).

Second, you can use symlinks for redundant images. This will probably cut your filesize in half!

Thanks again! This icon set is simply fantastic. I would be happy to implement the above suggestions if you want some help! - Dec 16 2010

Hi! I really like your app (finally, a Qt app to replace Sonata!). There's just one thing I would love to see: the ability to resize the main play window. My actual goal is to be able to use kde's window tabbing feature with Quimup (to reduce clutter), but the playlist window cannot resize down to the main windows fixed size - this results in it repeatedly going insane until I have to manually kill Quimup.

Alternatively, I'd just like to be able to look at the playlist without managing two windows.

Thanks! - Aug 23 2010

I was trying to tweak the reluna theme to be 1:1 (hopiong the new stuff would fix it), and just rediscovered an issue.

The theme uses an image with a darker blue-lighter blue horizontal gradient. To port it, I copied the exact titlebar background corners over - those are fine. I then copied the majority of the gradient to the button background image file, then a 1px wide to the left-mid titlebar position, another to the center, and another to the right-mid position, and so on.

The result is that the moment the buttons end (which varies between users due to their different preferences), the 'left-mid' title background starts, causing an abrupt shift (not so pretty). My workaround for this was to make the button background 1 px wide, but this results in a somewhat-visible constant to gradient shift once the title switches from the button background to the left-mid title background. Ideally, one could go from right to left from a source theme image, place them in order as title background files, and have them show up in full, rather than being clipped when the buttons end.

Thanks! - Apr 11 2010
Hey, I just noticed that changing themes within the interface (i.e. selecting a new theme) doesn't trigger the 'something changed!' monitor in KDE. This means that in order to change themes, one has to cycle through to something like Oxygen first, then back to DeKorator, then select the theme and hit 'apply'.

This might just be me or a bug just for KDE 4.4. - Apr 11 2010
This is awesome, thanks for the hard work and responding to requests! I'm going to fix up my old themes and make a bunch of new ones! - Apr 02 2010
I get something very similar in 4.3.0. I have desktop effects enabled, so instead of black rectangles it's just transparency (chunks missing from the decoration). - Aug 05 2009
To get the 0 px borders to 'show up', I have to either restart KDE or switch to a window style other than dekorator and then back again. Just something you might want to know :). - Jul 29 2009
Alright, no borders seems to be working (even in KDE 4.2!) :).

One last issue with it: resizing is difficult with mouse-only. I can do alt + right click, but it would be nice to have an option to make the lower right hand corner more clickable (for resizing) as in the Nitrogen window decoration. As it is, I can't get any horizontal resizing unless it's a super tiny area of the top left corner.

Thanks for the awesome work, now the Dots theme will look right :). - Jul 28 2009
I'm not using KDE 4.3 yet, but I will check once I am! - Jul 18 2009
Err, actually that doesn't quite work. The masks no longer apply if I make the leftMidFrameBg.png (and corresponding right one) empty. I get little white corners :(. - Jul 01 2009
Wow, I had no idea that's how you did 0 px borders, thanks! My new feature request: make it more intuitive :). - Jul 01 2009
A quick feature request for the KDE 4.3 version!

I'm currently trying to port a theme that has no borders on the left and right sides but does have beveled edges (requiring a mask). Dekorator doesn't seem to like no borders when there's a mask (haven't tried it without one) and just leaves a bunch of space on the left and right sides, w/ the beveled edges reaching over.

It would be nice to have a 'no border' option, maybe as part of the theme settings file!

Also, it seems to me like implementing a lot of these changes could possibly break backwards compatibility, have you considered forking the project? I don't mean to suggest that you do it, as you're the dev and know better how this should go, but it's an idea ;).

Oh, final thing: it might be nicer to adopt an emerald-style naming scheme + image setup, where for each button you have a single image split into six pieces (normal, hover, press, and the same for inactive windows). It would make porting/using emerald themes much easier (perhaps even automated/native!) and make improvements easier to organize, imo.

Thanks! - Jun 27 2009
Make sure you've applied the theme paths right: install your theme, then select it and hit 'apply theme paths', then hit apply. - Apr 28 2009
That sounds very good, skulptor! KDE 4.3 isn't too far away :).

Maybe you could check out what emerald does with their theme.ini files. They've had a bunch of people working on their stuff and if it's a rational system, you might as well mooch off of 'em. - Apr 24 2009
Right here: .

If I could get the window decoration working, I'd make a style w/ svgs using QuantumStyle. Then there'd finally be some good minimalist themes for KDE :D.

Incidentally, I can get the mask working on the bottom section just fine, but the window shadows drawn by kwin aren't affected so there's a massive block down below. I don't know if this is something you can define in dekorator, either via coding it in or if the option's already there, but it's necessary to make any theme with an irregular bottom border look good. - Apr 23 2009

I agree. I would be much more inclined to use ArchAssistant if I had the option to put it in 'netcfg2-only' mode or something along those lines.

But there hasn't been an update for over a year, maybe someone needs to fork/adopt the project? - Apr 10 2010

hmm, those seem normal. Maybe it uses icons from another location or... you need to restart kde? Otherwise I don't know how to fix it! - Feb 04 2010
Thanks for the feedback! I'll get to work this weekend.

The Program icons look fine on my computer. I wonder if SUSE uses its own naming scheme/patches? Could you check for me (should be in /usr/share/icons/oxygen/64x64/categories). Thanks! - Feb 04 2010
Added it, thanks! - Feb 02 2010
Added what I could (I think I got most of it). Sorry about the slow turnaround! - Feb 01 2010
Excellent, a list! I'll get right to work :).

A couple problems, though. I've already included battery icons where oxygen keeps theirs. It seems that the battery icon is controlled by the plasma theme, not the icon theme (kind of silly). The Amarok play/pause icons are all part of the amarok theme svg. Maybe I'll find a way to edit it and release it separately.

Also, what are 'big icons'? Do you mean a higher resolution? KDE won't actually use higher resolutions than 128x128 so far as I can tell.

Finally, a Buuf-style KDE4 icon would look terrible, because I'd be doing it (rather than mattahan) unless he decides to make one. But I can try ;).

Everything else seems doable, except for the plasmoids. woo! - Aug 26 2009
Done! Any more requests? I'm going to add a few more icons to justify the 1.0 bump. - Aug 25 2009

I'll probably do GANT before Umicons anyways, so sorry to disappoint! - May 20 2009
Um... it's in the 'IMPORTANT' section on the main page, silly.

"IMPORTANT: to use this icon theme, you need some applications:
1. 'zip' or 'unzip'. This allows you to unpack the files! (necessary because deviantart won't let me upload tarballs)
2. The 'convert' command from the Imagemagick application suite (free and open source).
3. 'tar'. You should already have this if you have KDE.
4. KDE. I don't know why you wouldn't have this, but uh... this suite is meant for KDE. While it's tango standards-compliant, many gnome/gtk apps are missing icons."

On archlinux, which is what I use (woo another archer): pacman -S imagemagick.

I don't think I included install instructions in the actual file, though. I should do that, thanks for reminding me!

'convert' is super handy for any kind of batch image editing, btw. - May 20 2009

Yup, it's Aya. I like a theme that matches my color scheme (stupid non-configurable plasma) - May 19 2009
I don't know if I understand how the rating system works. Either people are voting the theme down (that seems weird/unlikely) or it's dropping because I updated and it didn't suddenly get a bunch of downloads?

I dunno. I just have to wonder how it could lose 2% without someone telling me it was broken or ugly :D. - May 19 2009

I love the 'remove menus' option in the Wizard, it's perfect for my backups!

It'd make things even easier if there were an option/check button that wasn't in the wizard so I could streamline the process! Perhaps under the 'DVD' section, you could have an 'always remove Menus' option?

I've been looking for something like this (maybe it'll eventually have the option to use mpd?).

I've noticed a couple things you might want to know about, though. First, there's no apparent pause button. If I hit play again, it actually skips to the next song. Actually, 'play' just seems to skip in any situation.

It's also a bit slow when populating the playlist.

I don't mean to criticize, take these as helpful notes!

Also, how does it look for icons? Mine doesn't look nearly as good as yours (I use KDE), even though I'm using a Tango! theme. - Jun 27 2009
