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.

 ebuilds

excellent work! Since I'm a gentoo user, I created a couple of ebuilds:
http://ianegg.homeip.net/~ian/serenity-decoration-0.2.ebuild
http://ianegg.homeip.net/~ian/serenity-style-0.2.ebuild

I'm hosting them on my desktop computer, which isn't turned on or running linux 100% of the time...

 column titles

Sorry about the tripple post!

After using the style for a while, I find that the headers for column titles look too much like buttons, and this doesn't work very well when you have a lot of them in a row. Maybe a flatter or more subtle effect would be better.

Also, is it possible to have the frame in konqueror not drawn at all, so the content comes right up to the edge. Or is that unaviodable? The reason I ask is because I like to have crystal as my windeco, with 0 border width, using shadows for definition instead - like osx. This works well with firefox, but even with your improvemnt in this area, konqueror still has a border.

I seldom use the column view in Konqueror... but I just looked in the sources and I think it should be possible to change the color of the column headers without breaking something else. Give me some time and I'll see what I can do.

As for Konqueror's framing, sorry but I can't do anything more than what I've already done. Believe me, I tried many things before to reach the current result. I wanted to go much further but these last lines must stay.

A gr8 new look, however the title bar looks quite out of place..a smoother look, better buttons and proper blending with the window colours can help...

Out of place? Sorry but I don't think so. The titlebar totally matches the widgets inside the window --same buttons, same colors. I wanted it so and I won't change a single pixel of this.

The only thing that I planned to do but didn't was to provide different themes for the button icons. I'm working on it for Serenity's next release.

Thank you! I'm happy somebody tells --at last-- something about the tabs. :-)

Of course you can use it with KDE. This is ONLY for KDE. Download the packages, uncompress and build them.

If you have a common distro like SuSE, Fedora, Mandriva, Gentoo, Debian or one of their derivatives, you should also have a working build environment --installed or installable. Just open a Konsole and follow the instructions written in the INSTALL file.

You don't need to understand what you're doing as long as everything works well. If everything works, you'll find the style, the window decoration and the colorschemes to choose from the Control Center. If it doesn't work, cry for help! ;-)
