Description:

This is a widget style that was designed to be a pixel-for-pixel clone of the Microsoft Windows 2000 user interface widgets. I implemented it entirely from scratch, using screenshots and xmag, as well as VMware back in the day. The widget style is licensed under the terms of the modified BSD license included in the LICENSE file.

Munjoy Linux (http://www.munjoylinux.org/) uses this style as the default in their distro. Many thanks to David Chester for dropping a patch on me that implements a few widgets that I never got around to.

-Chris Lee (clee@kde.org)




Changelog:

Added a link to a Mandrake RPM of the style.

0.6
---
Fixed the INSTALL file and removed the Redmond deco that I had forgotten was there. This version will just install the widget style, not overwrite your system-provided Redmond deco; please use it instead of 0.5.

0.5
---
This version is the first one announced on kde-look.org - I had done a few internal releases that were only announced on my blog and such, but I figure this is a decent way to get some more feedback.

Yes, I'm evil. I don't care. If you don't like it, don't download it and don't bitch. If you do like it, great! Enjoy.

 Nice

Seems nice, just missing some parts in the file, "admin/Makefile.cvs" for example;-) Which is needed for making the configure.

D'oh.

That should read admin/Makefile.common.

Sorry, will fix. In the meanwhile, you should try that. :)

 Something wrong

Installed it just now but the style doesn't work quite right. Ran ./confgure --prefix=/usr (running Debian) and the compile went just fine. The style appear in Kcontrol, but when I choose it the preview of the theme is changed to .Net or something and when I hit apply the theme is changed to Keramik (standard theme for KDE?). Pretty odd.

A screenshot of it,

There's a bug in KDE or maybe Qt - I'm not really sure which - which means that the style will only be available to newly-started applications. I've talked to SadEagle (Maksim Orlovich) and we should have this bug fixed by the time KDE 3.3 is released.

Until then, please restart your applications and let me know how you enjoy the style!

Ah! Now it's working, seems preety nice, a good way to make new users (ex windows users) to KDE feel at home. I'm installing some machines at my fathers work this summer, this is the self written widget style;-)

Not my taste, but looks nice. It's a clean, clear look which many people will want to use.

Thanks!

For any other packagers out there - if you would like to make a binary package for my style, please contact me via email; I will be happy to link to your packages from the official style page, so that we don't have to have "Asteroid for Debian" and "Asteroid for Mandrake" as separate pages here on looky. The database is already full enough, no need to go duplicating the same widget style six times over for different packages.

Not fully agreed. Projects like "Asteroid for Debian" (which I've founded even you don't like that - http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=12499 ) does not distribube packages nor single binary file via kde-look.org. It rather points user to package repository that holds what it looks for. The major beneift of such approach (comparing to direct binary file distribution) is that user installs the package via native debian package manager which fetch recent version and (what's most important) keeps it always up to date whenever I (as recent maintainer) update it. If I'd send you a .deb file to include on your project page here, one could just download it and install with ease, but s/he would not benefit from automatic updates.

To sumarise - debian stuff is here http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=12499 please redirect Debian users to this page

 great looking

Wow, that looks really good.

If you finished this style one month earlier I wouldn't have started Konx (newly submitted today to kde-look), which is based on your also great dotNET style :)

One improvement:
The background of a checked toolbar button should be in cg.midlight() or something and not the button color. It not only looks better IMHO, but it's also what MS Windows toolbars look like when an item is pressed.

Thanks for the compliments :)

If you're interested in cleaner code, you may want to port KONX to either this widget style or to my SkeletonStyle framework. dotNET is nifty, and I love it but it's got a few hairy code areas, and this codebase is a bit cleaner as I started fresh with it.

Also, thanks for the pointer about the toolbar buttons. I'll take a crack at that ASAP.

Finally I downloaded your theme and did not judge it by screenshots alone. It's really terrific, since I think that Microsoft Windows 2000 (or XP classic) has a very nice style - even if I don't like the software.

I really know the Windows widgets very good, but I only came across 3-4 (very small) bugs:

-) Etched text on disabled buttons and menu items (checkboxes are drawn right).

-) When a top-level menu entry (File, Edit, View, ...) is opened, the text is offset by one pixel to the right and bottom until the popupmenu is closed

-) the Up/down button on spinwidgets is flat (like the button with the arrow in combo boxes) when pressed.

-) I think (this means, I am not totally sure), the topleft corner of a tab widget tab is rounded, but not as much as in your style.

BTW: I think porting my Konx style to the new 'engine' is too much work, but I will look for obvious changes which I will adept in my style.
