Description:

Kvantum is an SVG-based theme engine for Qt4 and KDE4, i.e. a program for styling Qt4 applications with SVG images.

Kvantum started as a fork of QuantumStyle, which is not developed anymore but whose author continued his work under another name (https://github.com/DexterMagnific/QSvgStyle). However, apart from the basic logic behind them, they are very different creatures now. In Kvantum, the emphasis is on usability, practicality and elegance.

Kvantum comes with a default dark theme, which should be used alongside the KDE/Qt4 color scheme included in the source and is inspired by the default theme of Enlightenment. Creation of such a theme for KDE was my first reason to make Kvantum but you could make themes with very different looks and feels for it; Kvantum will let you control many aspects of Qt widgets.

*** Compilation ***

Install Qt4 and X11 development packages (libqt4-dev, libx11-dev and libxext-dev in debian-based systems), open a terminal inside the Kvantum folder and issue this command: qmake && make

*** Installation ***

sudo make install

Please read the file INSTALL for simple instructions on usage and more.

*** Theme Making ***

For instructions on how to change configuration or make new themes, please read the files Theme-Config and Theme-Making in the doc folder!

*** Notes ***

(1) Each new theme should be accompanied by a KDE or Qt color scheme. Although Kvantum can define non-editable text colors, it relies on the color scheme for the others. It comes with a KDE color scheme as well as a Qt color definition for its default theme.

(2) Kvantum does not provide window decorations. Such jobs are done by the window manager.

(3) QuantumStyle or QSvgSyle themes are NOT compatible with Kvantum, and vice versa.

(4) A Qt5 version will come after a stable version of KDE5 has appeared in the Debian repository.




Changelog:

See ChangeLog inside the source for a more thorough list.

17 Oct 2014
------------
* Kvantum Manager informs the user when a theme is installed or selected.
* Added a Hacks section. Currently it contains only one hack for Dolphin. (KvGray makes use of it.)

14 Oct 2014
------------
* Removed ugly (flat) backgrounds from toolboxes.
* Added "Kvantum Manager" for easier installation and selection of Kvantum themes. It can be found under the Utilities menu after installation of Kvantum.
* Updated the deb package.

7 Oct 2014
------------
* Added a toggle text color (distinct from press text color).
* Fixes.
* Installation can be done with "sudo make install" now.
* Added a 64-bit deb package. I will update it only once in while. For the latest version, compile the source from GitHub.

First, this isn't a theme but a theme engine. Second, it has no relation to Cinnamon; it's for Qt4/KDE4.

The styles directory may be different in some distros. For OpenSUSE (64-bit) try "/usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles/", as is mentioned in INSTALL. Please tell me about the result!

I moved it to /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles, and still the same behavior.

does it require any updates for kde / suse ?

I had a 64-bit OpenSUSE-12.3 on VirtualBox and /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles/ worked with it. Another option can be /usr/lib64/kde4/plugins/styles/, where "oxygen.so" resides.

Are you sure that you closed and re-opened systemsettings after putting libkvantum.so in that folder?

And no, it doesn't require any update because, as I said above, it even worked with an old OpenSUSE.

It seems I have to use root terminal to compile the source code.

Compiling the source code under root terminal solved the issue. although the code compiles just fine under normal terminal.


I don't know if this is a common mistake or something related to my env.

anyway thx for ur patience and keep up the good work.

Good to know that you succeeded in installing it.

Most probably, for whatever reason (bad directory permissions?) others had no read permission for the compiled file and only root could read it. If so, just giving others the read permission would suffice.

Most probably you haven't installed X11 development files (libx11-dev in debian-based systems).

Sorry that I can't upload deb or rpm packages here! My reason is the active development of Kvantum. However, compilation is really easy when you have Qt4 and X11 headers.

That error message shows that you don't have libxext-dev, which is a dependency of xorg-dev. So, it seems I should add the xorg-dev dependecy to the installation instructions too. Thanks!

Good! I'll add that info to the INSTALL file. I hope you'll enjoy Kvantum with its default theme, KvGray or Dynamo.

 GTK 3.14 support

Hello I've read that GTK 3.14 supports SVG images in themes now, so I must ask, is there a possibility we might see a GTK3 compatible version so as to enable a smooth, clean, cross-toolkit look?

As a matter of fact, I'd made E17gtk (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/E17gtk?content=163472) before I started to work on the default theme of Kvantum. Its GTK3 part is for GTK-3.12 but I'll update it as soon as GTK-3.14 comes into Debian Testing.

If you prefer KvDark, you could use GnomishDark (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GnomishDark?content=147290) for GTK2+GTK3.

That being said, Kvantum is and will be only for Qt. GTK3 is too backward incompatible and unstable to be worth any effort in the direction of a unifying engine, IMO.

Darn. That is the biggest problem with KDE is that you are kind of left with QtCurve if you want a decent look that works with GTK

As well I hate any and all E17 themes, however Kvantum is a theme engine and the dynamo theme for it is rather nice looking.

Yes, QtCurve works with GTK2 but not with GTK3. The culprit is GTK3 neither KDE nor Qt.

BTW, for now, there are four Kvantum themes: its default theme, KvDark, KvGray and Dynamo. I maintain the first three and my favorites are the first two.

I'm aware but regardless of who is the blame the problem is still there and it still only affects users of KDE.

Believe me or not, users of GTK-based DEs have problems that, compared to what you see as a problem here, can be really annoying. Take the example of CSD or the recent changes in glib, which have broken several GTK3 apps. In fact, being a KDE user, you could feel safe ;)

However, let's be focused on Kvantum here. Making a theme engine for Qt isn't something straightforward at all. Just take a look at ChangeLog inside the source and you'll get a rough picture. Adding a GTK2 part doesn't seem practical to me. Any theme maker could add a matching GTK2 theme to his/her work, as I've done in KvGray. And even the developer(s) of QtCurve abandoned GTK3.
