Hi,

on http://ubuntu.linux-server.org/qinx-1.4/ you'll find source packages and binary packages for (K)Ubuntu Hoary 5.04 of Qinx.
I'm not using the mentioned debian packages sources here. Did a complete repackage of this.

I included also a kthememanager xml file and a preview png for it.

Right now, I'm waiting for review, that I can include this packages to the new Ubuntu release.

Finally you will find for gentoo actual ebuilds on
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88457


Have fun,

\sh

Frankly speaking I packaged all your styles (available at the same target repository)

I've always wanted to use QINX with KDE 3. Now that I've upgraded from 3.1.5 to 3.3.1, I can finally use your great work!

Hi, Putting your Qinx style / Grower deco with little changes, you can present SkyOS's new theme very easily. I'm sure SkyOS fans will impress a lot :)

How serious would you rate this? I might have to grow the toolbuttons an extra 2 pixels to fix it, and that would be a significant change in the look. I also see the same behavior in Keramik and HighColor Default. Perhaps the fix needs to be made in kdelibs or qt instead.

But I will look into it. Thanks for the report.

OK, I was looking at the other styles you mentioned and sure enough the problem is there. I suppose the way you have it is better than the solution of making buttons wider.

For those of us running debian with kde3 you can install this theme pretty simply. First, install the dev packages for qt and kde.

apt-get install kdebase-dev libqt3-mt-dev

and then configure with this command.

./configure --with-qt-includes=/usr/include/qt3 --with-qt-libraries=/usr/lib/qt3 --prefix=/usr

For those of you with problems building Qinx for Mandrake 9.0, I see that there is an RPM at ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/contrib/texstar/linux/distributions/mandrake/9.0/rpms/. I believe that this is build for KDE 3.1, also at the same location.

Theme looks nice from Screenshot, and I'm sure it would install fine, but I'm a newbie to linux, and currently have mandrake 9.0. What programme do i need to open the INSTALL file, so I can know how to install the Theme. Can anyone help?

I've installed Qinx on other distros before successfully, it's just that this time under Mandrake 9 the Style isn't listed within Control Centre although the Qinx Colours and Window Decoration are listed. I've checked /usr/lib/kde3/plugins/styles/ and i have qinx.so and qinx.la. Any ideas why it's not listed? When configuring I used '--prefix=/usr' for Mandrake as this is where the KDE stuff goes.

I did ./configure --prefix=`kde-config -prefix`, make clean, make, su, make install and I still don't have the qinx style :( The bloody files are there as I can see them.

I wish I could help, but I don't use Mandrake. Perhaps the Mdk8.2 RPM listed above might work. Or maybe you can contact one of the Mandrake users who posted above and see if there are any tricks.

I did a ./configure, a make, and a make install
but I can't see the theme in my "styles" tab
in my "themes manager". What do I do now?
When I try to add the tar.gz file directly via
the themes manager I get the error no .theme file


thanks

I agree wholeheartedly with the above poster, this theme is needed in the KDE CVS. It is very clean and fast, unlike the cartoonish Keramik & Liquid themes.

With this one added, KDE will have three GREAT styles to choose from. They are all 100% consistent. To be truthfull, the cool looks is why I use Linux :D

... a version with the scrollbars' sliders coloured after the titlebar this style & windec (which already are my favourites) would definitely be the very best on the scene :)

(I konw this wouldn't meet qnx phlosophy, you could give it another name if you had to :-)
