Description:

25/8/06 I have changed a few pixmaps,I hope you like :-)

22/8/06 I have modified the theme to make him more readable.I hope you like ^^.

this theme is inspired by fusionxaqua appearance theme and reflection kbfx's theme.I'm using xgl compiz quinstorm with compiz-themer and he works perfectly.(http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_XGL). I have modified the buttons in the vista style decoration (you find them inside the file).
I hope you will like it.
(xaa mouse theme:silverx coursors)

Untar the archive somewhere and run "sh ./install.sh" as user on the command line.

I really like the concept, but I think it's a bit too hard to read, and gaudy.

You say you want some more constructive criticism, so here goes.

Ditch the shine in the middle of buttons/tabs, it just makes it hard on the eyes.

You have too much contrast - try making the whole theme blend better.

I don't quite know how to put it, but the progress bar looks strange to me.

I think if you took a look at the Poleyester style running a dark color scheme with the glass buttons, it might give you some ideas on how to make this a little more refined.

I can't wait to see where you go from here. Best of luck.

Mmm, I like what you've done with it :D

I have a few more ideas if you want to hear.

Give an option to center tabs, I think it would look really good with the tabs aligned center, it would almost then look like the tabs were buttons, kinda like Aqua's Choosers.

Flip the colors in the progress bar - make it so the completed part is the purple, and the background the black.

Do a different effect for group-boxes. Try rounding the edges more, or what I think would be cool is a different effect besides a border, like sunken group boxes, or raised, or something different. Maybe something that kind of blended a bit better with the current tab.

I tried not to be too vague, hope it helps.
Best of luck, this theme is making some nice progress.

Thanks for the advices.
unfortunately I do not like the rounded buttons I prefer them square.
I have coloured the progressbar with the blue becouse is in tune with the shadow of my windows. now i am trying to add other effects like the animated bars or prelight button,but now the problems begin in fact I am not good with the Script and canning use Gimp is not enough to add new effects.
I will now try to study other themes with many effects like Baghira and see if I am able to do them, if you are already skilled and would like to help me i will thank you.this is my email: ilcicci1983@msn.com

As much as I'd love to help, even with the knowledge of programming I have, it will not be enough. I know nothing of making styles. I'm decent with the GIMP, and can code some, but I don't think you'd find me to be much help.

there is only one way to change the ugly beveled borders on tabframes groupboxes and others
hack the builtin engine, it only provides for pixmaped button borders, uses motif style to render what is not handled in the engine

what is handled ???

// unsunken widgets (see headers)
"PushButton", "ComboBox", "HSBarSlider", "VSBarSlider", "Bevel", "ToolButton",
"ScrollButton", "HScrollDeco", "VScrollDeco", "ComboDeco", "MenuItem", "Tab",
"ArrowUp", "ArrowDown", "ArrowLeft", "ArrowRight",
// sunken widgets
"PushButtonDown", "ComboBoxDown", "HSBarSliderDown", "VSBarSliderDown",
"BevelDown", "ToolButtonDown", "ScrollButtonDown", "HScrollDecoDown",
"VScrollDecoDown", "ComboDecoDown", "MenuItemDown", "TabDown", "SunkenArrowUp",
"SunkenArrowDown", "SunkenArrowLeft", "SunkenArrowRight",
// everything else
"HScrollGroove", "VScrollGroove", "Slider", "SliderGroove", "CheckBoxDown",
"CheckBox", "CheckBoxTri", "RadioDown", "Radio", "HBarHandle", "VBarHandle",
"ToolBar", "Splitter", "CheckMark", "MenuBar", "DisableArrowUp",
"DisableArrowDown", "DisableArrowLeft", "DisableArrowRight", "ProgressBar",
"ProgressBackground", "MenuBarItem", "Background", "RotSlider",
"RotInactiveTab", "RotActiveTab"

from kthemestyle source ( note no frame type objects )

I ran the shell script, but it didn't install. It is probly because I am using Gentoo. An ebuild would be nice. I would do it, but I don't know how.

 ebuild

 
 by franzf on: Aug 23 2006
 
Score 50%

I have an ebuild ready. But a few problems.
It seems the theme is derived from fusionx-aqua. Thats what the dirs in the tarball and the themerc-file tell me...
Please could you change this!
I have fusionx-aqua installed, so theres a problem installing both themes...
Then the paths to the pixmaps in the themerc-file should be changed.
If you could do that i can release the ebuild :)

So if you anounce the theme as "FusionX-Metal" you should consistently use this name (for dirs, themerc and styles-names...)

Thx
Franz

copy it into your overlay, do the
ebuild /Path/to/Overlay/x11-themes/fusionx-metal/fusionx-metal-1.2.ebuild digest
and emerge it :)

If it doesnt work (wrong paths, etc) just tell me, I`ll fix it.

Have fun

This ebuild worked great, except I like the look of 1.4-a much better than 1.2. I tried updating the ebuild but don't really know what I'm doing. Any chance of getting a new ebuild for 1.4-a?

Does the posted ebuild work for you?
I have IceWM-Themes working now. Just had to emerge kdeartwork-kwin-styles.

But your Pixmap-theme still wont show up in KControl. kdeartwork-styles gave me some pixmap-themes that work...

one of my favorite pixmaped themes

this might help, a kdevelop theme project, http://www.digilanti.org/werks/detente/ThemedStyles-0.3.tar.bz2

USAGE NOTE: do this as user NOT root
> tar -xjf ThemedStyles-0.3.tar.bz2
> cd ThemedStyles
> ./configure
> make install
> kinstalltheme

the last command is required to make user installed pixmap themes show up in kcontrol

this installs three pixmap styles in user space, not hard at all to add more styles or remove the existing and replace with yours
after >./configure you can import ThemedStyles project in kdevelop, I highly recommend this as its much easier to manage
then you can make tarballs or rpms ;)
if you do it manually be sure to copy and edit the required makefiles.am and stuff to your theme project dir in ThemedStyles/
or maybe a very bright but bored coder might make this into a template, plug and go pkg for pmthemes

hope this helps...

in themerc this

[KDE]
widgetStyle=Quinx

should be...

[KDE]
widgetStyle=basicstyle.la

after installing still need to run kinstalltheme to update kthemestylrc (user pm theme cache)

the theme should load his colours alone also without the colorscheme directory.you are not able to show the colours as in the Screenshot?
