msstyle loader prototype


Theme/Style for KDE 3.2 +

msstyle loader prototype

Link:  http://
Downloads:  5712
Submitted:  Aug 26 2004
Updated:  Aug 30 2004


This is a kde style prototype capable of using the msstyle format. The code is pre-alpha quality (aka POC) and although I compiled it on my system, it might not on yours :)

Enjoy (and send me patches/feedback!)


Now the download actually contains the code (looked @ ms patents in europe and it looks like msstyle is ok).
The style is based on alloy (thanks to all authors for such a great template).
Help: I'd need some help with the following:
1. scrollbars: i'd be grateful if you could help me with painting the scrollbars (had all kinds of problems with that)
2. any ideas on speeding up the painting (stretching/tiling algorithms would be a good start :) )
3. the .msstyle contains the window decoration style as well. it would be nice if someone could start working on the windeco stuff and make it share the bitmaps with the widgets style (any idea on how to create a nice/fast shared engine using KDE's mechanisms?)

1. The code will probably segfault if a weird input file is given (no safeguards)
2. Go to deviantart.com and download a style (reluna is my fav from there) and point the fialog to load the .msstyle file from there (uncompress the zip...)
3. it looks like Qt does some image caching for radio/checkboxes. any way to "undo" that?
4. the qt code is mainly designed to verify the correct loading of the PE file.

This is incredible. It will certainly have a HUGE impact on the way we skin Linux . . . if it works, and skins a fair amount of the desktop elements.

Wow. Please finish this.

Linux: Every day we are more.

 MS styles

Via interoperability provisions is shall be no problem to load from a file format. The only obstacle could be an ugly software patent on a style engine.

conversion of MS styles would be great. Of course those styles would belong to their copyright holder.

EU swpats see http://gauss.bacon.su.se

and support FFII to avoid EU swpat legislation.

I have no idea about the legal issues - as the guy above said, it all depends on patents - but the idea itself is brilliant. While I'd obviously prefer native styles, there aren't really too many good ones at all, and this is an ideal solution for 'bridging the gap'.

im not a lawyer, but windowblinds can convert msstyles to their propriety format, and MS recomends them. id say there is no problem here.
