Theme/Style for KDE 3.2 +

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.


RPM packages updated.

- Bugfix for KDM.

- 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.

 Wrong place

The colorschemes included in Serenity 1.5 were incorrectly installed into '$KDEDIR/share/apps/kdisplay/colorschemes' instead of the same thing but '../color-schemes' (with a dash in the middle).

You can move them by hand as root or just redo the installation. In all cases, you can safely delete '$KDEDIR/share/apps/kdisplay/colorschemes' which doesn't belong in KDE.

Sorry for the inconveniency but I saw absolutely nothing. Probably a lack of caffeine. ;-)

 [Deco]Visual problem

With "When maximized" setted to "No Frame".
When I strech window to max size, the window maximize itself then the title frame keep framed position.

Thank you. That's something I never thought of doing. :-D

This is very strange bug. The windec only partially reacts to the fact of being maximized. That shouldn't happen. I need to investigate. In the mean time, my advice is to use the maximizer only. No problem, this way. :-/

I dont know if serenity is the "bad boy".
There are several WinDecos that offer an option to draw no border / no round edges / ... if maximized. All these have problems with getting maximized by resizing the window and not clicking the "maximize"-button.

Probably there is someone out there who knows how (and where!) to patch that ;)


Remi, I love your KDE-Style (don't know if i mentioned yet... :D )

I don't know if this is the best one but I found a solution. The next version of Serenity will handle correctly all these maximize/resize situations.

During my bug hunting, I noticed big redraw problems. I went down to kwin's sources and I found a little something. Here it is:

To all windec developers, if you have conflicts in between maximize, resize and redraw, just add


at the end of your Client::maximizeChange(). That's it.

To keep you occupied during the long winter nights, now look at how your windec reacts when you shade a maximized window. (Ouch! It hurts...) ;-)

Wow, 1.5.0 feels even faster than ever before. I really love this theme, I'm using it since before 1.0 I think and it's by far the best KDE theme available!

Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one to have that feeling. Finally, these "accelerated" gradient routines must actually do something... ;-)

Yeah, this is a cool theme. I'd like to see it included in future versions of KDE.

I'd like to be able to make the titlebar much smaller, though. I could reduce it to 18, but on my screen, maybe 12 or 10 would be better. I always like to make the window decoration as small as possible (using Smooth Blend at the moment because it gets quite small).

For the moment, it's impossible to make the buttons any smaller than 18 pixels, not because I set it so but because of the icons. They are 16x16 pixels, plus 1 pixels of (minimal) framing all around. To be able to reduce the buttons some more, I'd have to use smaller icons... That means I'd have to draw these small icons. I'm already feeling tired... ;-)

However --as all lazy people-- I have another solution. What do you think of the idea of removing the space above and below the buttons? Try Serenity (1.5) with the minimal border size and 18-px buttons. Isn't the titlebar small enough for you this way?

I have in mind to make a more beautiful version of this size of titlebar with useable borders too. To keep the cake and eat it at the same time... ;-)

 is this a bug?

Before all, thanks for your fine works.

I think I've found a bug into 1.5.

I've downloaded it today and I've discovered that this version of serenity solves conflict with Eric3 Python IDE. This IDE goes crash with my old 1.2 version of serenity styles. Thats good.

But now I've a problem with kde 3.5.4. When I drag an icon inside a konqueror window, some traces of the icon vertex are painted in the window background. This happens also on desktop.

Here I've post an image:

Well, that just proves my head isn't extensible... ;-) In other words, I forgot because I haven't see this bug for a very long time. It is already fixed in my version 1.6 (not released yet).

It's the corners of the focus rectangles that leave traces behind the icons. They are disabled on my config because I never navigate through the dialogs with the keyboard, so they are just a useless nuisance.

Try to disable them. If you don't miss them, well, the bug will be gone too. Otherwise, wait for the next release.

Very beautiful style, been using it for a while now.

Here are some ideas for the next version:
tab highlight highlights entire tab not just a 'box' inside the tab.

treeview style that uses the "normal" arrows without a frame and a dot inside, files use just the dot.
IMO the modern style seems out of place.

have the radio buttons use a filled circle.

no arrows on the slider (were the arrows added in 1.6?)

Option for a non-sunken scrollbar when dragging.

The highlights on the tabs are this way on purpose. It isn't so nice when the gradient occupies the whole tab.

Thanks for the idea for the modern tree views. I was looking for one. I like the concept but I hadn't found the right graphics for it. I just got used to the current ones.

And yes, the arrows on the sliders have just appeared. It's written in the changelog. Does anybody read it? ;-)

As for the scrollbars, I agree with you, the "sunken" look isn't optimal. I just haven't decided to do anything yet. I'll change them in the next version but I don't think an option is necessary for such an improvement.

"The highlights on the tabs are this way on purpose. It isn't so nice when the gradient occupies the whole tab."
with the tabs separated it just looks weird IMO. but I do agree with you with them not separated.

"And yes, the arrows on the sliders have just appeared. It's written in the changelog. Does anybody read it? ;-)"
normally yes, I guess I read it, started playing and forgot what I just read. I blame the excitement =)
