Mandrake Cooker with KDE 3.1 RC3

I should show the control panel - which has more stuff in it for KDE 3.1

I guess the beauty of an icon set is a matter of taste.

Bad execution. FYI - Norway is not part of the EU. - May 13 2002
Sort of Keramik

Ice-WM Themes by Matti 27 comments

One small problem. On the colored version the titlebar graphic is missing the right side (at least in the tar) - I simply copied it from the beveled folder.

This is GREAT work!! Thanks! - Apr 12 2002
Keramik style on KDE3

KDE Plasma Screenshots by spanky 13 comments

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess . . . I was so thrilled that I got the keramik style to work (seeing as I'm no developer) - and I couldn't figure out where the keramik windows decoration is, so I settled for the Liquid one.

Where did you get these?

They are nowhere to be found . .

Keramik style on KDE3

KDE Plasma Screenshots by spanky 13 comments

I have an AMD K7 850 TB with 768 MB memory and a GForce 256DDR card with the latest NVidia drivers.

I'm running Mandrake 8.2 with Texstars optimized KDE3 RPMS.

There are many factors which determine the performance of a style or WM.

Using this page as starters:
http://www.kde.org/anoncvs.html

I downloaded only the three main modules to a directory I called kdecvs:
$cvs co kde-common arts kdelibs

Then I did: $make -f Makefile.cvs
from the kdelibs directory

Make sure you have the latest autoconf package (2.5 or greater) and set the following environment variable:

$export WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5=1

Now comes the fun part - I did the following:
$./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3/

(I have Mandrake 8.2 as basis and Texstars KDE3 RPMS - www.pclinuxonline.com)

During the configure script it may complain about missing libraries (devel packages) - these have to be installed to make it work. Keep running the above configure script and install the missing devel packages until it doesn't complain anymore about missing libraries.

After the configure script runs well (without errors) then I went to the following directories and performed the following:

from this directory as root (/home/robert/kdecvs/kdelibs/kdefx)

#make install

then I did the same thing from this directory /home/robert/kdecvs/kdelibs/kstyles/keramik

#make install

Then I went to the KDE control center and under Look and Feel -> Style I found the Keramik style there!!

I hope this makes sense - again I'm not a programmer and I fiddled with it until I got it to work . . .

Good luck! - Apr 06 2002
