How did you get this k-menu button, normally you can just take an png-icon which is a square ( I think )

...most Impressive... :P

Seriously it's a great style
What bothers me (it bothered me in the original plastic style too) is that buttons and stuff look too flat for my taste... perhaps an option for somewhat more beveled (a la thinkeramic) buttons in the future?

Again thank you for a great style :)

Keep perfecting perfection, not that I am complaining. Its so wonderful to see someone keep developing a theme. So many start off with promise and fizzle out. Glad you kept at it and overjoyed about this Xmas present :)

I would like to report a small bug. When you select any of the options to display a custom colour and hit ok, the new settings are recognized, however after applying them and going back into the configure screen, changing the colours, the settings are not picked up. You have to check and uncheck a box for them to be picked up.

Reproduce:

Select checkbox for "custome menu stripe colour and choose a custom colour.

Click OK and the "apply" button will be clickable in the main CC window.

Click "configure" button for lipstik again and change the custom colour and click OK

The "apply" button is not selectable and the new colour wont be recognized until you go back into the configure screen and select and unselect an option.

Awsome...

... I'm speachless.

2 tiny remarks:
a) the stripe does not appear when Menu Effect is set to Translucent
b) choosing a color for the stripe is applied without a gradient (is this the
desired behaviour?)

If you choose the windows style scrollbar you can resolve an oddity with the gtk scrollbar (the gtk scrollbar is like windows one, with one button up and one down, the kde one instead got one button up and two buttons down, the result with gtk-qt is that the bar itsel scrolls over the bottom up button, lipstik with windows style scrollbar resolves this issue :-D)

What is the name of the window decoration used in the screenshots? I can't find it anywhere!

Report

It's 'Plastik'. You have to install the package kdeartwork in order to get it.

If you dont feel like install a huge package for one window decoration, check out Knifty. Nearly identically (I personally like Knifty better).

Check out my contributions and see my screenshot. It contains a better example of Knifty then the screenshots with the release.

THis theme is beautiful, a really slick look. BUT . . . I'm running KDE 3.2, on Mandrake 10.0. So I can't get it to install, either from source or from that Mandrake RPM found here on Kde-look. It doesn't show up in the "styles" area.

In nay case, will it work on KDE 3.2, or only KDE 3.3 and upward?

I'd love for this to work on KDE 3.2, it's a really sweet little style.

I cant help you with that, you might have better help with the publisher of the mandrake rpm.

I like it, except for what it does to the kicker. Could you make it possible to turn off the gradients on the kicker?

Err... sorry, I just restarted the Kicker and it's fixed. Lipstik rules!

Cmon! A good theme! Why spoil it with such a yucky "active tab" indicator? A rectangle!? Imho, plastik handles it better.
