Description:

Serenity is a soft and quiet theme to ease your mind, with a lot of options to make the Serenity yours.

All I wanted to do was to remove as many lines as possible from the widgets in order to avoid the "recursive frames effect" in Konqueror. I did just a little more. ;-) And I also did my best to support dark colorschemes.

To install from sources, see INSTALL file in the archive.




Changelog:

RPM packages updated.

1.7.1:
- Bugfix for KDM.

1.7:
- Configuration dialogs re-designed to be lighter i.e. faster to render.
- All the colorschemes I ever made for Serenity (25) are now included.

1.7 Style:
- The character used in the password entry boxes in now a big dot instead of the asterisk.
- Scrollbars and sliders do not sink under a mouse click any more.
- Tabbar improved with new gradients and new colors. Four styles are now available for both the active and inactive tabs.
- Tabs are a bit less busy. They now only change of color under the mouse.
- Menubar slightly changed with new gradients and new colors. Six styles are now available.
- Gradient menubars are now a bit less busy too.
- Textboxes (which include also editable comboboxes and spinwidgets) can now be highlighted when they have the focus. (That's more visible than only the blinking cursor.)
- The popup sub-menu delay can now be raised up to 1 sec. (That gives you the time to *feel* you have to click to let a sub-menu appear.)
- Serenity now has its own brightness routines so that you can have white buttons. (Still doesn't work perfectly with black buttons.)
- The frames in Kontact are back. (Grumble, grumble...)

1.7 Decoration:
- Partial re-design of the configuration dialog to give you a better control over the colors of the buttons and their symbols. You can even set the power of the eventual color mixes used.
- You can now also set the color of the buttons when pressed.
- The standard highlight color is now available for both the hovered and activated buttons.
- Four titlebar style are now available: No background, solid background (both as previously), solid top and softer edge.
- The windec also got brightness routines similar to the ones of the style so that the buttons all look the same.

Nothing serious... It was early in the morning and I was short of caffeine... ;-) A curly bracket is missing. I already re-uploaded the correct archive

You can either re-download it... or just insert a curly bracket in line 813 (eight one three), save and re-build.

The correct archive is exactly 405 KB. If somebody has an archive of a different size, he/she knows what to do.

 Focus follows mouse

 
 by dimon on: Oct 8 2006
 
Score 50%

Very nice style, switched over from Lipstik.

There seems to be a problem in the window decoration with the "focus follows mouse" window behavior – whenever two windows are open on the same desktop, they swap focus endlessly, hogging all the CPU. After changing to "click to focus", everything is OK. Haven't noticed this with any other win-decos.

Running KDE 3.5.5 on Debian unstable, compiled Serenity from source.

Hmmm... Interesting bug! But I don't think it's Serenity's fault. I tried all available focus modes without noticing such a strange behavior on my OpenSuSE 10.1.

In fact, I don't even know how that could be possible. There's no way the mouse cursor can be somehow above two windows to make them flip endlessly. Besides, the focus isn't handled by the window decoration. I mean, there's no code in Serenity to change the focus, not even in a indirect way.

Until somebody else confirms, I can only advise you to put a cactus on top of your screen. Computer voodoo proves to be efficient... sometimes.

Seriously, I don't have a clue... and be careful when you water the cactus! ;-)

I'm having this issue too with the serenity window decoration in combination with focus-follows-mouse. When switching back to Plastik decoration, everything works fine.
The problem occurs a bit non-deterministically, but with a few windows opened that are partially overlapping, the problem reproduces itself quite quickly. Clicking a window's titlebar a few times stops the flickering but it starts again after focussing or clicking another window.

I'm using Serenity 1.4 on Gentoo Linux.

 Memory leak

 
 by chrisje on: Oct 12 2006
 
Score 50%

I love this style, but after using it since last weekend, my desktop became useless a few times.

It seems some apps slowly increase in memory-usage when using this style. The increase rate is about every 3-4 seconds, but with varying small amounts. Though one app can fill up 1GB plus 512MB swap in about half a day. Two apps half this time.

So far I found two apps that do this; Quanta and the Kubuntu systemsettings tool. These apps show no increase in memory usage when using other styles, so I assume this has something to do with the style.

Well, I found the leak. To stop it, disable the animation of the progress bars. That's a temporary solution until I find a real one.

I found another problem with compiling the style (no issues on the kwin deco).

It seems it now needs libfam as make is resulting in this error

./configure didn't noted that I don't have libfam installed. And even worse, I can't install libfam without a lot of dependency problems (loads of apps want to uninstall when requesting libfam to install)

I wonder what a style needs libfam for?

In reply to myself.

Kubuntu seems to use gamin for filechange tracking. By installing libgamin-dev I was able to compile the serenity style.

Still makes me wonder why a style needs to track file changes?

So do I! Serenity doesn't use libfam for any purpose. I've no idea where it comes from but the RPMs I built on my SuSE 10.1 require it... and a lot of libs Serenity doesn't use. I guess that's what we could call an indirect dependancy. ;-) Go figure!

It must be something you've implemented in the latest version 1.4, because 1.3.0 didn't require it.

Because you're an idiot ;-) here is a stupid question: Did you install two things? The style and the window decoration are split into 2 packages. Either you have to install 2 RPMs, or you have to make 2 builds.

When everything is installed, open the "Look & Feel" page in Control Center. There you will find "Style" and "Window decoration". Is everything there?

If the window decoration isn't available, that's because it isn't installed. There must have been some error messages along the process --at least one. What is it? That's what I need to know to be able to help you.

And don't worry, you aren't an idiot. Installing a style for KDE requires a degree in computer science. ;-)

error message during ./configure:

/bin/sh: /home/ariox/KDE: No such file or directory
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing


Then another set of errors during make install:

libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /lib/kde3'
libtool: install: warning: remember to run `libtool --finish /lib/kde3/plugins/styles'


I recently started a full on attempt to switch to Linux. I like the customisability and the feeling of power over my computer, but sometimes I feel like I'm running circles in the dark.

Okay, regarding the first error log (during configuration), I created a folder in the location called KDE, and ran ./configure again with no erros (though the folder remained empty--not even hidden files that I see).

For the final error log, which appeared to be a reminder, I ran the command for the specified directories (though I'm not sure what it does) and still dont' have "Serenity" as a window decoration. I've restarted X, already, too.

First thing: If something goes wrong during './configure', you must not try to bypass but resolve it.

I've no idea why a folder named "KDE" is requested. There is no such thing in the configuration script, especially in capital letters.

How do you call './configure'? There is only one (common) way to do it for KDE:

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

Or eventually:

./configure --prefix=/path/to/kde

If it definitively doesn't work, send me your "config.log". (Click on my avatar on top of the page.) I'll see by myself what's wrong.
