Theme/Style for KDE 3.2 +

MetaTheme is a project dedicated to unification of appearance between different graphics toolkits (currently GTK2, QT and Java).

The program is designed as a thin layer between toolkits and theme engines, creating unified API by which each theme engine can draw. The result is that every application uses the same code for drawing, making the appearance same across different applications. MetaTheme also adjusts behaviour a bit, so the overall effect of unification is impressive.

Please see the new homepage at http://www.metatheme.org/ for more details about this project.

I think you should add some information about uninstalling the theme, I had to find the README file to uninstall it. How about metatheme-install --help? I also think that the biggest problem at the moment is the speed, or actually the lack of it. At least on my computer it takes _seconds_ to draw the most complex windows.

Yes, I will try to make it more user friendly in the next release.

About speed, you've probably hit the worst case (big tiled background and QT's tab pane widget), I'll look into speeding this up.

Hi I get some errors while compiling:
metatheme/MetaThemeScrollBarUI.java:95: cannot resolve symbol

I think is java related, but I don't know how to fix it.

MetaTheme currently needs JDK 1.5, if you don't want (can't) upgrade, you can try the patch at http://www.metatheme.org/tmp/metatheme-jdk14.diff

I had metatheme installed and quite working on hoary, but now that i have upgraded to breezy it does not show up in KcontrolCenter. and the style affects only the GTK apps.
I reinstalled it, with the prefix "/usr", as before, but it still doesn't work!
how can I do? i loved it ;_;

Hi there,

I'm using Debian etch, compiled and installed metatheme successfully, but when I try to switch over to it, Control Center simply closes before even giving a preview, right after selecting "MetaTheme" from the dropdown box.
Pentium 4 1.6GHz, Asus P4S333, 768 MB Ram, 2x 80GB Samsung HDD, nVidia TNT2 Riva 16 MB Ram.

Thank you for your work and atention
