Description:

Kvantum is an SVG-based theme engine for Qt4/Qt5 and KDE, i.e. a program for styling Qt applications with SVG images, with an emphasis on elegance, usability and practicality.

Kvantum comes with a default dark theme, inspired by the default theme of Enlightenment. Creation of realistic themes like that for KDE was my first reason to make Kvantum but it allows themes with very different looks and feels, whether they be photorealistic or cartoonish, 3D or flat, embellished or minimalistic, or something in between.

Kvantum also has extra themes, that are installed as root with Qt5 installation and can be selected and activated by using Kvantum Manager.

The core idea of Kvantum, namely using of SVG images for drawing Qt widgets, is taken from QuantumStyle (not developed anymore but continued as QSvgStyle at https://github.com/DexterMagnific/QSvgStyle).

*** Compilation ***

Install X11 and Qt development packages (libx11-dev and libxext-dev for X11, libqt4-dev for Qt4, and qtbase5-dev, libqt5svg5-dev and libqt5x11extras5-dev for Qt5, in Debian-based systems), open a terminal inside the Kvantum folder and issue this command:

qmake && make

You might need to put the full path of qmake in the above command, especially for a second compilation against another Qt version.

*** Installation ***

sudo make install
make distclean

Then select Kvantum for both widget style and color scheme in System Settings. Please read the file INSTALL for detailed instructions on compilation and installation for Qt4 and Qt5!

For 64-bit Debian Testing (and, perhaps, other 64-bit Debian-based systems too), you could just use the deb package below. There are also 32 and 64-bit Arch packages, kindly made by Josip (metak).

*** 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 color scheme because some KDE apps may use colors specific to KDE. Qt apps use Kvantum colors though.

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

(3) I update this page whenever needed but without announcing an update. The latest date is in the ChangeLog section below.

 Need RPM`s

Please, make .rpm package for Fedora/Opensuse users. To compile so much stuff every time just for installing new visual style is really not enjoyable(
P.S. Sorry my English

I understand but the only kind of package I can and will make is 46-bit deb because I don't have any rpm-based system.
However, I will surely add a link if an rpm maintainer gives me one -- as I have done for the Arch packages. (The maintainer of the Arch packages kindly told me about them through a message.)

I`m sorry for askin this, but I just found a [url=http://ftp.cse.yzu.edu.tw/pub/Linux/openSUSE/repositories/home:/kill_it/openSUSE_13.1/x86_64]repo for OpenSuse[/url] with Kvantum style, and I think, that will be grate to paste link to it Download section.

There is just one problem: there is no Qt5 compilation among those packages.
Anyhow, I'll search for other links, for both OpenSUSE and Fedora.

I just start understanding the potential of Kvantum..
I only regret that I have never worked on SVG file and seems a bit long to learn ..
Among stuff never seen anywhere else I love the options for text.shadow,the color combination ...

Thank you!
Kvantum is a complex beast. That is the price I had to pay for maximum flexibility. However, I've written a comprehensive doc for it, which I too consult sometimes ;)

Yes, I know. Qt5-5.3 had some bad bugs which are fixed in Qt5-5.4 but what is compiled against the latter is not completely consistent with the former.

For using the deb package, you need to add the Testing repository to apt and update Qt5 (but not anything else).

As an easier alternative, you could compile it against Qt5-5.3.2 (see INSTALL).

The default Qt is Qt5 in most distros, so the folder PATH/qt/plugins/style/ should belong to Qt5 if it exists and the Qt5 plugin should have been installed correctly in your case.

I don't have KaOS but Manjaro. They seem to have the same versions of Qt5 and KDE (5.5.1-1 and 18.08.2-1, respectively) and yet I don't see any problem here. Does your problem persist after logging out and in? Is your system fully updated?
