Description:

Widget style + kwin decoration both aimed to be a good balance between eye candy and simplicity




Changelog:

2.0
-some fixes in build files, links less stuff
-fixed icons on tabbars
-fixed a bug in kcalc

2.0 beta2
-built with cmake is a kstyle, built with qmake is a plain qt style
-some fixes here and there
-corrected a crash with qt webkit
-corrected a graphical glitch with textboxes in Plasma

Polyester 1.0.5:
-compiles with gcc 4.3

Polyester 1.0.4:
-Corrected some visual glitches in ksnapshot

Polyester 2.0 Beta1:
-some graphics fixes
-some build system fixes
-translations should be ported

Polyester 1.0.3:
-Polish translation by Tomek Argasiński
-Italian translation

Polyester 1.95:
The widget set it's more or less complete, there are still some issues and i didn't tried all the combinations of configuration options, so some of these can still be broken :)

Polyester 1.90:
This is the first public releases of the qt4/kde4 port of polyester, some important notes:
-First of all it must be considered a very early alpha quality code not intended for everyday use, it could blow up your computer or eat your cat, use at your own risk :P
-as i said is not very stable and probably not all configuration option works
-at the moment there is only the style, i don't know if or when i will port the window decoration
-it can be compiled with cmake (and you will need a kde4 snapshot o do so) typing
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=whathever you want
make
make install
-or with qmake (you will need only qt4 with devel package, but you won't get the configuration dialog)
in order to use qmake you must go in the style subfolder and type:
qmake qmake.pro
make
make install
-probably i won't release another release tarball for quite some time, but if you're curious there is a bazaar repository at http://launchpad.net/polyester

Polyester 1.0.2:
-corrected a bug in the configuration dialog (centered tabbars)

Polyester 1.0.1:
mostly a bugfix release
-corrected a build problem with automake 2.6+
widget:
-better management of the menu stripe width
-another hack for gtk-qt: the menu stripe is always off (yeah, it's a broken solution but it was managed too bad...)
-when both toolbar separators and menubar emphasis with border are turned on don't draw an extra line under the menubar
deco:
-when the focus policy is set to "focus follows mouse" the bad flickering should be done (need some testing)
-corrected a bug that caused the windows not being completely painted when kcompmgr is activated

Polyester 1.0:
This will be more or less the final version for Qt3/KDE3, apart some fixes for the garzillions of terrible bugs I'm sure that are still there :)
widget:
-With colored scrollbars option turned off, the scrollbar handle has colored extremities on mouse over (similar to the Ubuntu theme)
-In the configuration dialog "Menus and toolbars" was misleading, now it's "Advanced"
-nice circles instead of asterisks in password lineedits. Idea from Daniel Molkentin http://daniel.molkentin.de/blog/index.php?/archives/59-Password-shadowing-Pimp-My-Plastique.html (will probably be the default in KDE 3.6 btw)
-default button highlight when animations are disabled
-alphablending (yes, fake of course:)) at the corners of the popup menus
-corrected a bug in the sliders aspect
deco:
-titlebar buttons icons have a cleaner aspect

Polyester 1.0_rc1:
widget:
-less (and bigger) dots on QSplitters
-button like menuitems works with transparent menus
-menu stripe works with transparent menus
-entirely redesigned the configuration dialog (should be more usable)
-a lot of code cleanups in the configuration code
-light gradient in the progressbar blank area
-corrected an ugly rendering bug in the QGridView headers
-corrected a rendering bug in the slider with reverse layout
-minor cosmetic changes to the following widgets:
-scrollbars
-sliders
-default buttons contour
-spinboxes
-inactive tabs
-better mouse over highlight with checkboxes and radiobuttons
-border of buttons and other 3d widgets

deco:
-option to make rectangular titlebar buttons (at the moment is the default)
-antialiased titlebar buttons border
-redesigned the configuration dialog to be similar to the style configuration
-added svg sources of the titlebar buttons icons so it's easier to make modifications
-some code cleanups
-drawing of titlebar buttons follows the global contrast settings

Polyester 1.0_beta2:
-Now Gentoo ebuild should work
widget:
-Nicer animation on buttons when the mouse cursor leaves them
-Shadowed text of buttons and menubar configurable separately
-Fixed a bug in the rendering of scrollbar handles
-Don't render dots on scrollbar handle when the handle is too little
-Optimization: lot useless loops in the animation code (i.e. deactivating the QTimer when is not needed :))

deco:
-More Fitts' law friendly: titlebar buttons works also when the mouse cursor is at the top edge of the screen
-No longer draws the round border if the window is maximized
-Uses 16x16 icons in titlebar where available instead of scaling down bigger icons

 Help! I'm new.

I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by asking such a simple question but can someone please give me the steps to install this Theme? I've been able to import the colors but everything else requres the entire package to be installed. Thanks for your help!

i know it sucks, but c++ themes (like this one and all "native KDE themes") have to be compiled like an application. so you have to extract it, go to its directory, type "./configure [enter]; make [enter]; make install [enter].

you'll have to have installed all KDE development packages and of course the whole make toolchain. lots of work for a newbie, i know - but there are lots of how-to's and stuff like that on the web.

the other option is looking for a package for your distribution (eg a .deb for debian and (k)ubuntu, a rpm for most other distro's - but get a specific one for YOUR distro, others most likely won't work tough you can try 'em).

install the package with the tools from your distro, eg on commandline or graphical - you will have to read some stuff about installing software under linux, it works way different compared to windows (tough not really more difficult - once you get used to it, it actually is generally speaking easier and faster).

good luck

Thanks so much for the speedy response. I tried the ./configure command and it seemed to work okay at first but it got so far and gave me this error:

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

any ideas? Thanks again.

You are missing the X11 development packages. Development packages are usually where header files lives. You will have to use your package manger to install that package, usually called x11-devel or xorg-devel.

Since that package are missing you most likely miss some other development packages.

Try installing a package called kdebase-devel or some such. This one will require other packages to be installed, accept those too. Then I think you'll have most of the needed packages after that, try running the configure command again.

In SuSe 10.0 for exemple you will have to use configure --prefix=/opt/kde3, where /opt/kde3 is where kde is installed. So if anything goes well but you don't see the theme installed, just reinstall it, but with prefix option pointing to where kde is installed.

Try out this colour scheme: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=35937

Looks good with "SUSE" Window Decoration which goes well with Polyester.

I think Polyester's Window Decoration should take some clues from SUSE's implementation.

 no effect on buttons

Hi,

I cannot manage to have effect (glass, gradient, etc.) on buttons. There are only flat...
But I have the same problem with other themes... perhaps a checkbox somewhere in the control panel...

Do you have already had this problem ?

Thanks in advance...

Works for me.
Though it seems like there is some problem in the way settings dialog tracks changes in settings. So after you have changed these settings as desired toggle option e.g. "Centred tabbars" and then click OK and subsequently "Apply" in the "Style page".

Many many thanks for this absoultely perfect window decoration. By now it's the only available window decoration I've found where you can set the button size and which has at the same time buttons with a high contrast and which allows to show all buttons (also help and sticky).

The problem with most of the window decorations is that 99% of the window decorations are not able to resize the buttons, so you end up with a huge title bar with some tiny buttons which looks ugly and is hard to use for visually impaired people. But your window decoration is very well thought out - and looks really beautiful. I use it with buttons of size 30 and a titlebar size of 32 and no lighter borders.

 Add glossy editboxes

I have a suggestion: add an option to make the editboxes (even multiline ones) glossy. This means that they'd look like they glossy buttons, only they'd look concave instead of convex. This can be achieved by mirroring along the X axis.
