Description:

This is Liquid, the theme by Daniel M. Duley a.k.a Mosfet, released with a few modifications:

A rewritten kwin engine that works on KDE 3.2.x (Tried porting it but the kwin engine badly needed an update)
The kcm module is depreciated in favor of the KStyle Config
Transparency shifted to the kstyle server. (Yes, XRender works now)
Misc : Fix of a few quirks in the widget engine

Credits :
Mosfet for the underlying code
Thomas Lübking for a lot of help
David Johnson for the example window decoration

I love this theme i want to use it with Baghira's buttons, but i cant seem to get it installed. I have learned that normally you would ./configure, make, su to root then make install but your source package is missing the configure files. How do i compile and make this style?

Im using Fedora 2 but for a source code file it shouldn't make a difference should it? Or could it be an architecture problem i have an i686. If this helps.

I haven't looked, but try

make -f Makefile.cvs && ./configure && make && su -c 'make install'

I wish someone would maintain this package, because it's an awesome theme that no longer exists in the repositories, and will no longer build from source (on my system at least). If anyone decides to update this program and make it work on openSuse 10+, please let me know.

This I like - it kicks Baghiras ass :-) Anyhow - a proposal for an improvement. If you give an option to have rect buttons/sliders/scrollbars like Liquid gives in Konqueror with buttons - same nice glossy feeling, it will be perfect. The reason - without real antialiasing, all curves give pixels that stand out.

The tabs are perfect. I don't get pixel artifacts. Mostly, the artifacts show on the scrollbars. But with scrollbars, rectangularly shaped and with an option for rect buttons - it would be: Perfection :)

Hello, thank you for continued work on mosfet's liquid!

There is a problem with your project on kde 3.3.0:

Stripples aren't working on Menus or the KMenu in KDE 3.3.0.

But they work everywhere else they were intended to. Please contact me
if I can help you fix this problem in anyway. Thanks, I love your
work, please continue!

First u need to remove the directory admin in the source tree. After that, well just copy paste the whole path exactly like i have written it starting from $(... ie, u should be doin a "cp $(kde-config --prefix)/share/apps/kdelibs/admin ." inside the src tree.

Great work, but I found small bug. KIconEdit application crashed with Liquid 0.9.7 and KDE 3.2.3/QT 3.3.2. WIth other style everything works fine.

Report

kiconedit crashes with any style that dares to replace the background with something different from a color.
i hacked around that in the last baghira version - look at the code.
if you need advice, tell me.

Hi,

I've got the same Error.

If I do a make -f Makefile.cvs, I get :

*** YOU'RE USING automake (GNU automake) 1.8.5.
*** KDE requires automake 1.6
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2


Any idea ?

Thanks.

PS : I'm glad mosfets liquid is back. I loved this style. Baghira is nice, but I prefer the simplicity of Liquid.
