Description:

Tiblit is a KDE style focused on customization and experiments with modern human-computer interaction. My aim with the project is to create a highly customizable QT style that looks completely different than what is currently available.

A bit of a warning about 2.0 beta. Don't bother complaining. It's _extremely_ rough around the edges and I'm building a new tiblit around a different engine. 3.0? Eh...

Build contributions:
The BSD port is provided by dolmant1.

The RPM in KDE-Look is for SUSE Linux 9.3 and doesn't put Tiblit in KControl at all. I hope you can resolve the problem.

-lacl is a new library to me. To my knowledge I don't link against -lacl but google turned up a lot of "cannot find -lacl" link errors with SuSE and applications using KDE libraries. I'd be curious to get as much details as possible from you, perhaps the whole configure, make, output. Even a make distclean afterwards. I.E.,
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` > log_to_maitre
make >> log_to_maitre
make distclean >> log_to_maitre

Send the log over email, if you would.

There's a lot of improvements, and I like tiblit a lot now. Only problem this time is that the configuration dialogue is too big for my screen. I have my monitor resolution set to 1024x786, but I also have to kicker panels. This means that I am always sliding both panels out of the way to make changes.
This could be fixed if the configuration dialogue were resizable (it isn't at least on my setup).

Same is the case here. :(

Btw, when will the 2.0 come? I am always waiting...

The status bar only appears flat when the statusbar border colour matches the background colour and the "Surround the sunken panels and the statusbars with dark borders" option is checked.

Also, the colour that the border has to match isn't the window background colour, but the statusbar background colour.

In Konqueror, when multiple tabs/views are open, the statusbar background is tinted a few shades brighter than the window background colour, which causes the statusbar to look unflattened again.

I appreciate it - believe me. Patches would be nicer but hey, who am I to nitpick. Anyway - I hope to resolve a lot of issues by switching engines.

Maybe it's just me, but it looks like a line is still drawn between the Up/Left scroll buttons and the scrollbar groove, whereas no line is drawn between the groove and the Down/Right buttons.

If the "Remove subtract-line are from add-line button of scrollbar" option is checked, then a line is drawn between the scrollbar groove and both sets of buttons.

Personally, I think the scrollbars look more attractive without the line separating the buttons and the groove. I'd like an option to make it so that no line separator is drawn for either set of scroll buttons.

Try the "disable scrollbar border" option as well. And select the exact same color for the scrollbar grooves as you do for the scrollbar buttons.

I set both the "Arrow" and "Groove" colours to exactly #F5F2F3, which is the same as the window background. I've also checked the "Disable border of scrollbar grooves" option. No luck, sorry.

Hi, I'm using this style right now and there are a few things I'd like to see improved.

consider it suggestions, no demands :)

1. smaller configuration window
2. colored outlines for all widgets (not just buttons)
3. sharper and more visible edges on radiobuttons, checkboxes and scrollbars

well, that's about it.
thanks for a really nice style, especially for the menues and colored outlines on buttons :D

Already done in 2.0.

Be careful with your use of the word *all*. Maybe radios and checkboxes first?

Scrollbars are done too.
