0.8
----
after a long time, this is what should have been 0.7a and is a snapshot of the current cvs version and probably the last baghira for Qt3 ever.
there won't be Baghira for Qt4, don't ask.
- several bugfixes, minor changes, whatever.

0.7a
----
- [style] Reincluded workaround for kpdf < 3.4.3
- [style] added Milk style
- [style] some code enhancements/cleanups
- [bab] removed "start QString name int deco" dcop interface (useless anyway)
- [bab] added "start QString name QString settings" dcop interface to allow starting a program with the rules set for another one (or a general rule like "Milk" ;)
- [menubar applet] size fix (using an own settings value ;)

Would it be difficult, time-expensive job porting baghira to qt4?

I would like to sound out users' interest to collect money to th at aim.

Thank you

I love mac osX themes i think they are the nicest and baghira is the most osX alike style that exists but its just ugly.
If you see all the elements are pixmaps and they look horrible nomatter what resolution you use (i use 1440x900). Even the arrow buttons look horrible one can see the pixels and the button constrast make it worse.

If you look at style such as domino you will see a lot of difference since most of it elements are drawed and don't use pixmaps. Scrollbars for example looks horrible in baghira and the tabs too.

Textboxes are not rounded and even if you happen to manage that, if you use pixmaps some of them will have ugly corners (due to scale).

Even the buttons of the comboboxes are ugly and they are too big (as icons). Other styles provide a way to adjust the height of the buttons but there is no way in baghira (if we can strech the buttons they will look better)


So, its wonderfull that you guys make a trully remarkable imitation of OSX but the design is really poor

Sorry for being such a newbie, but when I try to compile it with 'make', all I get is 'make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.'

Could anyone help me, cause this theme looks great and I really would like this to work.

Thanks / adam.

Try running configure first. So:

./configure
make
su root
make install

it would be really nice, if baghira-style respects the "border"-settings from applets (or applications) like "system-tray", the normal Clock applet (both kicker extentins). The Kicker looks really bad when using buttons, kmenu/suse-menu, clock, or systemtray.
although, the border is disabled inside the clock-settings.

you also see that behavior in your
screenshots.

can you fix the bug ? thanks :)

Why won't you make a baghira Theme for Qt4? Baghira is extremely popular, so why not? I would be really sad if I couldn't use Baghira with KDE 4.

What settings should I chose to make it look exactly like Safari? I love the tabs and buttons in safari, I'd love to have my computer look like that.

make a new link to libXtst:

ln -s /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6 /usr/lib/libXtst.so
-->worked for me

Also make sure you got this lib installed, but it should be installed by default...

I have preformed the 3 basic installation instructions:
1. ./configure
2. make
3. make install

Each of the above steps has been preformed successfully ... then after I (think) I am done everything, I relaize my theme has not changed to the Baghira theme at all ... no trace of Baghira ... what am I missing??

Thanks and Take Care
