INCLUDED
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Default Theme (including Button)
- large Icon Version
- 3 diffrent KickerBGs

NEEDED !
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- KBFX Silk release 0.4.9.3-20070225
- Webcore Fonts and Freetype with BCI
more info here: http://avi.alkalay.net/linux/docs/font-howto/Font.html#freetype

The new font-package and WebCore fonts will enlighten your desktop in general so dont fear to install them!

INFO
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.) Unpack the Archive

2.) Double click on both of the themes to install them both

3.) Place the Kicker BGs to your favourite location and set them via right click of Kicker.

4.) To hide all of the Categorie Icons simply set them to the empty.png which is included in the package via "K Menu Editor"

5.) Last but NOT least:
To display the fonts correctly you need to set the Font Rendering in Conrtol Center to: "Antialiasing on" "Exluded Range: 6-7". So fonts which range from 6-7 are not antialiased.

WARNING
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This theme is designed for Kore Domino Config and Kore Color Scheme and WILL have irritations with other setups. (KBFX is not very flexible, not my fault)

I still owe you the corrections, since a damn too long time.

Unfortunately, I installed another distro and backed all up except the theme. I have - however - still the instructions on how to make it work on the kbfx version I used then - should still be valid.

Although I can't upload, I have here the instructions to fix it manually.

Note: the theme is saved somewhere in ~/.kde/apps/.kbfx normally, if I recall correctly. Sorry, can't look at it exactly, cause currently on a windows box :-(

Here's the how-to fix

* Copy topbg.png to mask.png
* Delete scrollnormal.png
* Copy tilenormal.png to scrollnormal.png
* Open this new scrollnormal.png and scale it down to 6 pix height
* It's best to change the color of scrollnormal to blue, e.g. the one used in the buttons
* Then, in KBFXconfigapp , change the elements column height - I don't remember exactly, but I think I used 368
* Apply it and look at the result
* You might need to play a bit with the value of heigth, if it isnt correct

Hope that helps

Yeah it's working with the newest version. Now my desktop looks exactly like yours!
BUT...
when I scroll the menu up and down, it's...lagging. I don't know a better word for it. It becomes normal if I move the cursor, but I want it to look normally and not like that. Is there any solution? (512mb ram 1,8GHz, openSuSE10.2, KDE 3.5.5, Beryl, XGL activated, NVidia all installed and so on)

Hi all

We're in the finishing phase of official kbfx 0.4.9.3 Silk release. I installed this theme, and it was also messed up :-(

The good news is that I have fixed it and we will publish it (with due credits to Code2 of course) at the date of KBFX release.

If there's someone who can't wait it, contact me - i'll publish it then ;-)

Just in case anyone else runs into it, I had an ugly blue line at the bottom on the right pane but adjusting the Layout>Item Properties>Item Height to +/- 365 fixed it for me, YMMV.

Great theme.

concerning color schemes, you might be right ;-) but else, there's so much you can do and we do make it more flexible step by step.

If you come up with a good idea to make it more flexible, we're glad to listen

Just email me or my mates, you can find our emails on kbfx.org
