Description:

This is a theme based on Azenis, created by JJ Ying (www.jjying.cn). All credits for the artwork goes to him. I only made the port of it. I of course had to alter it a bit because of the limits in Dekorator and Kbfx.

Decompress the Azneins Theme and find the readme.pdf inside. It tells you how to install the theme

What the theme include:

Windeco for Dekorator

Kbfx theme

Font for Kbfx

Wallpaper

Kicker background

Icon backgrounds (for icons in kicker)

KDE Splash theme One with sysinfo and one without.

KDM-Theme This is my first KDM-Theme so don't judge me to hard :P
You will need to install the font (saved by zero) provided in the "Azenis Theme".
I don't know if it works with other resolutions other than 1280X1024.

Cursor-theme (Target) of JJ Ying. I have changed the color and made it smaller than the original.

SuperKaramba-themes:
System info (Base of TechMon-theme) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Tech+Mon?content=31253
UT2004 serverbrowser (based of skQstat) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/skQstat?content=19106
Style for Kclock http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/KClock?content=66205

OpenOffice.org-splash http://web.telia.com/~u00175529/openintro_ubuntu_sun.bmp

Color scheme and QtCurve theme By request

Liquid Weather background http://web.telia.com/~u00175529/20.png

Audacious skin

Hope you like it :)


Last changelog:

9 years ago

Added a SuperKaramba sysinfo-theme. I used the TechMon-theme as a base.
----------------------------------------------------------
Fixed mistakes in deKorator (Left bottom corner and left top frame). Cant believe I missed that.
----------------------------------------------------------
Made it all into one download because of the complains of the host. Don't know if its better.
----------------------------------------------------------
Found a new host. Don't know for how long it works.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a style for Kclock (super karamaba)
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/KClock?content=66205
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a alternative Kbfx-theme. Made some room for icons in the listbox.
-------------------------------------------------------
Added a Amarok Super Karamba-theme (first screenshot). I used another karamba-theme as a base as I am novice on scripting.

As always, it's not done yet. When I figure out how to make a volume-slider I will finish it. It seems to use a bit of cpu as well. Suggestions are welcome.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added my UT2004 server info-theme for SuperKaramba. It is based on skQstat: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/skQstat?content=19106
Don't know if ppl still play UT2004 but I added it anyway. Maybe someone have some use of it. The only requirement that I remember is qstat that you probably will find in your distros repository.
---------------------------------------------------------
Put all into one download, and made better structure of the theme. I also made a howto in a pdf-format for new comers to Linux. I'm not very good at explaining things but I hope it will due. I also added a OpenOffice.org-splash. There is no room for more screenshots so you need to click on the link to see it
---------------------------------------------------------
As ppl have asked for a color-scheme, I added a color scheme and also a QtCurve-theme because of the color for the scrollbar. Don't forget to save your QtCurve theme if you should not like this one. This will always be separated as its own download.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a background for Liquid Weather (I used "Black Cutouts" as a template to make mine). You need to click on the link to see a preview. I also removed the separate downloads.

If someone request it I will update the howto to cover "Liquid Weather", but You will most likely find info on that on main site for lwp. http://liquidweather.net/

---------------------------------------------------------
Added a Audacious skin. I have put a lot of time to make this, so I hope you like it.

I also updated the screenshot so I can show the most of it. It's not my meaning that you should use all I made as it will be too much.
----------------------------------------------------------
Made a new button at top left on the Audacious-skin (forgot to do that before I released it
----------------------------------------------------------
Something happened to my file on the host. Had to rename some of the files. At the same time I updated the screenshot and uploaded the new Audacious skin which was not updated last time.
----------------------------------------------------------
Updated the Audacious-skin. Added better looking buttons.

Fixed the problem with the decompress. Seems to work now.
----------------------------------------------------------
Fixed the KBFX start button. Also fixed the date for KClock. It was one pix to low (strange, thought I had fixed it before).

The new icons in the screenshot is called Preface (found it some time ago on some site), and is not an icon-theme. I manually changed the icons I use.
----------------------------------------------------------
Found a error in the KDE Splash theme (system). Removed "uname -m" and "uname -a". Will look better for all distros (I think).
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a alternet KBFX theme. To use if you are using more than 1 plugin.
----------------------------------------------------------
Added a VU - Skin for Audacious/Xmms (By request).
----------------------------------------------------------

this is the most awesome Linux desktop looks i've ever seen

could you please make a port for KDE4? it's such a bummer it's KDE3-only :(

Glad you like the theme.

I have recently started using KDE4 and have come to the decision, that I'm sorry to say, I wont make this or any of my themes for KDE4. There are a couple of reasons:

1. I would have to learn Inkscape as KDE4 uses .svg images (Inkscape best app for that?) and I don't want/have time to learn.

2. KBFX don't support KDE4 and the theme wouldn't be complete without it. "The standard KDE4 menu and Lancelot looks like "oversized elephants on weed" (sorry creators of those)." and those wont fit the theme, so KBFX is needed imo.

3. Superkaramba is a bit buggy in KDE4, and making Plasmoids to fit the theme would be to much time consuming to learn.

In short, the KDE-dev's made KDE4 more difficult to make themes for, and there is just to much difference between KDE4 and KDE3.

There is still some things you can use from the Azenis theme in KDE4. Dekorator works for KDE4 so you can use the win-deco. The wallpaper of curse. The Superkaramba themes will work with a bit of tinkering, but they would still be buggy.

It's been awhile since I have stumbled across a theme that I like and have fell in love with. I don't normally like dark themes due to font colors interfering and icons looking funny, However; this is an exception for me.

You have a Fan!

Just wondering if theres any plans of making this work with KDE4? I had it on KDE 3, and LOVE IT! Wanted to get it working on Kde4 without having to have 2 versions on KDE on system. Any thoughts or comments or help? :D

I'll look into it.

Tried to install the plugin but it made audacious to crash, and as I have a newly installed Debian I'm not keen on compile. i need to find a trustworthy Debian package first.

Try this: "Untar the windeco, then you need to add the path manually like this:

I feel the responsibility to answer questions as I put the theme up here.

I really can't figure out what icons you used. The Snowlsh icons are just...white o.O

How can i make them look that cool black?

Another question: What dock did you use?

Amazing work, though.

About the icons. Quoted from page 10:

"Here you go: http://solidfiles.com/d/ab62381059c138749ec71d0e6254ae34

Remember, this is not an icon-theme. You have to manually change the icons, one by one."

What dock are you referring to? I don't use any dock (that I remember :P). Do you mean Kicker (at the bottom of the screenshot)?

Thanks for the link. But it seems that solidfiles.com isn't working right now ._.

I ment the "dock" in the upper middle. It looks like a dock to me. But if it isn't a dock, whats then? Normal icons?

Solidfiles is working just fine for me...

It is just "normal" icons at the top.

Solidfiles had a little downtime i think. Now i have the right icons. Thank you very much!

But i have another question... :D

The font color of my minimized windows is black, and not white like in your pic. It's a stupid question, but i can't figure out how to change the color, could you explain it to me. That would be very nice^^

Sorry for these stupid questions, but i'm "new" to linux :D
