Hello, I like this theme but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to install it. What file executes that? I installed one other one on here but it seems the same rule does not apply. I am confused.

I am running KDE 3.3 (finally switching from VTWM to KDE).

I get following errors from install.sh:

QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used

I'm running the script from a Konsole
window. The error is being generated by kinstalltheme. What is causing this ?

Also, Control Center->Appearance & Themes->Window Decorations does not list "icewm-theme" as is mentioned in
the README.

When I tried to run the install.sh I got an error and I had to move -maxdepth and -type options before the -name argument. So the correct second line for me is: KDEHOME=`find ${HOME} -maxdepth 1 -type d -name ".kde*"`

The shading for window title bars is reversed - the active window's title bar should be darker than the inactive one.

Ok, I like it, but there is no instruction on how to uninstall it :(

To "uninstall" just follow the install.sh script in reverse.

First, select other theme components in your KDE control center so none of this stuff is loaded.

Delete:

${KDEHOME}/share/apps/kstyle/pixmaps/acqua (directory)
${KDEHOME}/share/apps/kstyle/themes/acqua.themerc (file)
${KDEHOME}/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes/Acqua (directory)
${KDEHOME}/share/wallpapers/Acqua.jpg (file)

Where $KDEHOME is your .kde directory in your home dir.

Although, once you've deselected the theme components in the control center, is there really much reason to uninstall it? It doesn't take up much space.

the real question is... why is Dr. Phil an icon on your desktop? Hopefully it's not like that "bonzi buddy." "Would you like relationship advice?" "You're a man, so it's your fault." "I've got a secret I'd like all to know. I'm not really a man at all."

Sorry all!! There is a typo in my question, the following is a revised version:-

The only thing that is missing is the "Windows Decoration"?? According to the instruction, there is supposed to be an "IceWM" selection in "Windows Decoration" and then press "configure" to select "acqua".

Problem is that "IceWm"is missing from the list under "Windows Decoration". What's more, there isn‘²t any "Configure" button in the menu either.

Is this because the instruction is referring to an earlier version of KDE and hence doesn‘²t work. My KDE should be the latest one since I have just installed SUSE 9.2.

Does anyone know how to select "Acqua" for "Windows Decorations" for my case??

Thank you!!

I have properly ran the shell script and installed everything. I was able to select acqua from "Style" and the wallpaper etc. The only thing that is missing is the "Style"??

On a Mandrake 10 Powerpack, it doesn't seem to work as expected.

I run the script and get this output:

[root@penguin acqua-3.2]# ./install.sh
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used

kded: WARNING: KGenericFactory: instance requested but no instance name passed to the constructor!
Acqua for KDE installed.


After that, of course, I don't have the Acqua theme....

The script used to install it is

#!/bin/bash
KDEHOME=/usr
mkdir -p /usr/share/apps/kstyle/pixmaps/acqua
mkdir -p /usr/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes/Acqua
cp -rf pixmaps/acqua/* /usr/share/apps/kstyle/pixmaps/acqua/
cp -rf themes/* /usr/share/apps/kstyle/themes/
cp -rf icewm-themes/Acqua/* /usr/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes/Acqua/
cp -rf wallpapers/* /usr/share/wallpapers/
kinstalltheme
echo Acqua for KDE installed.

since I want to install it site-wide on all clients.

It works now.

I had to reinstall everything for the Acqua theme twice, and then kill X and relaunch.

Hem... I got just the same stuff in the Konsole when running install.sh :

QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
Acqua for KDE installed.

I try the install many times. I finally found the "acqua" style, but not the IceWM in the list though I found it installed in /home/roby/.kde/share/apps/kwin/

I looked for it in the oldest comments, but I don't found a solution.

What do you mean by "kill X" please ?

Thanks in advance, to anyone who can help.

What happened to the Acqua icons? They used to be in an icon theme archive called Acqua.icons.tar.gz, but no such icon theme archive was included with the 153-acqua-3.2.tar.bz2 archive. Did I miss something?

I loved those icons, please let me know where I can find them.
