Funny. It looks to me like you have a 2 pixel contour on the 'highlighted' side of your 3d widgets (an outer grey pixel and an inner white one).

Maybe this is just my eyes playing tricks on me, but there are certainly (at least) 2 pixels for the 'shadow' side, since the gray shadows are visibly thicker than the highlights.

Can you explain what you mean by a '1 pixel countour'?

Thanks,
Rob

E.g. the plain panel labelled "groupBox" consists of the '1 pixel countour'. Sunken and raised frames are the same, just with lines which should indicate shading or highlighting drawn inside...

Well, I've downloaded this and I've done make and make install, but it won't work.
It doesn't show up in the Theme manager nor am I able to open the theme file manually.
I am pretty new to Linux, so I'm not sure if I even did the right thing.
So if someone could tell me if I did anything wrong I would be happy.

Nevermind, I've got it working.
I had to move all files from /usr/local/[subdir] to /usr/[subdir] to get it to work.
Well, it could've been a cleaner install, but it might as well have been my fault. :P

You should then use --prefix=/usr next time:P
And when you're a "beginner", watch out that you don't forget you installed it manually there. I think you want to have the chance to remove plastik again anytime:)

When switching my window decoration to Plastik, I get Keramik instead and the settings in the 'configure Plastik' tab also do not change anything.
Am I missing any files or what coud the problem be?

I got the same problem here, when trying to use the window decoration I also get the error message in .xsession-errors:

kdecore (KLibLoader): WARNING: library=/opt/kde3.1/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik.la: file=/opt/kde3.1/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik.la: /opt/kde3.1/lib/kde3/k in_plastik.so: undefined symbol: _Q212KWinInternal14PlastikHandler.m_useHighContrastHoveredButtons


I'm using Debian Woody (3.0) with KDE 3.1 and QT 3.1.1, both compiled from source.

Any hope this will get fixed?

I have the same problem. When I active the Plastik Kwin decoration, I see the default (keramic) .


Please, author, fix this problem for woody users, who can't use your clean and beautiful kwin decoration.

I have this too. When I try the decoration my .xsession-error says:

Distribution is Debian Woody and the KDE is 3.1.2 from download.kde.org

More info:
The WinDec files seem to be in place:
/opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik.la
/opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik.so
/opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik_config.la
/opt/kde3/lib/kde3/kwin_plastik_config.so

I really have no idea what is going on. Have tried pretty much everything, recompiling, reinstalling, relogin, ...
This is on KDE 3.1.3 with QT 3.1.2.

In fact, I was considering taking a stab at writing this myself (no promises). But I've had trouble finding any sort of tutorial on writing gtk or gtk2 themes. Could anyone point me to a good reference? Thanks.

I agree! Dots are better! They're very neat!

When I first tried the new scrollbars with the lines instead of the dots, I didn't really like them. But I do agree that the dots are pretty hard to see using certain color schemes (the default Plastik color scheme being one of them).

The main problem I had with the new scrollbars was that the lines went all the way across the grips. I think that it would look much better if the lines stopped a few pixels before the edge of the grips. Just my opinion though.

hm, i think, it is not bad, the lines are nice like they are right now.. (for me) i think it is a kind of individual look.. Aloy has also got lines, but they doesn't hit the "border" of the scrollbar. actually, the lines on scroolbars of plastik are diffrent and beautiful, they are a good alternativ for the dots.. with some color-schemes, the dots are nearly invisible.

i just think there is a horizontal line separator missing in the style, for separating the menubar/addressbar/toolbars/etc.

thanx

I disagree. I think that seperators between the toolbars adds too much visual clutter. I really like how the toolbars flow into each other. I guess these sorts of things are bound to vary greatly from person to person. That is why I am looking forward to being able to configure KStyles in the GUI with KDE 3.2.

hi, what do you think about horizontal lines as kind of separator between Menubar,addressbar,toolbar,bookmarkbar..
just like the one from Alloy-Style (if using the settings):
[Settings]
darkGradientValue=10
lightGradientValue=0

i always switch between alloy or plastik style, because i like stuff of both.. the current look of plastik is simple and nice, but i think it still would be simple and more nice, if there is a horizontal line between the toolbars..etc. i don't mean it needs the gradient.. but, the line that is visible when using the above "gradient-settings" in Alloy.

ah, there must not be an option in the dialog.. but it would be nice if it is optional in the config file (like plastikrc - i mean, optional after compiling, not before).

it would be really great,
thanks
