This is exactly what I've been looking for. A scrollbar that I can actually see! It installed fine on Mandrake 9.1. Thank you very much!

Are there debian unstable packages
available for kde3.1.x ?

Hi,

0.3.5 fixes the missing color scheme problem - thanks. Also, would it be possible to return to the dotted scroll bars, but include in the package the new design (or vice versa), so people can patch and choose the one they want?

Also, I noticed an issue in Kplayer. The seek bar, which appears normally with Keramik or other styles, doesn't show up properly with Plastik. Strange.

i also thought, the dots on the scrollbars are more nice..
but, now i think, both are nice.. i would prefer an option in the style-settings dialog, to choose the one people like..

thanx


p.s. anybody knows if somewhere exists a SuSE8.2 RPM already ? thanks

I'm agree. Both dots and lines are cute and smooth - yes, it'd better to have an option, if possible, which one to use: dots or lines :)

I think an implementation like Beos Tilelbars (or Beos Beta) would be nice.

this looks so beautiful - i want to try it! i can use the style just fine, but the window decoration doesn't seem to work.

i compiled and installed it (with no errours reported), but everytime i select Plastik - it just looks like Keramik.

i'm running RH7.3 with the kde-redhat packages (3.1.3a up to date). any one have any ideas? knifty works well for me now, but plastik looks better - and i wanna try it! :)

cheers!

Hi ceebx,

Thanks for your work on Plastik! But running KDE 3.1.3 I've noticed that when I installed plastik 0.3.4 there is no longer a color scheme available to choose in the Control Center... reverting to 0.3.3 brings it back.

Otherwise, I have to say I really liked the old style "dot" scrollbars. I thought they were one of Plastik's nicest touches... oh well...

The few other problems I've noticed with Plastik are:
1) With konsole, if I place the multiple-session toolbar at the bottom, the buttons seem to hang too low and look like they get cut off (I can provide a screenshot if you want).
2) One nice thing about Keramik is that the Kmenu is two shades blended together, giving a nice transition effect. Can this be done for Plastik as well, without compromising the rest of the color scheme?

Otherwise, please add me to the "make Plastik the KDE default" petition.

Hi Sandro!

First of all, thank you for this style - it's the best style for KDE, IMO.

I just wanted to disagree :) with your last decision to replace dots on the scrollbar slider handle with simple lines - now, IMHO, scrollbar slider handle lost its cuteness, it has before; the new lines do strike sharply my eyes - it feels like a squizzed spring.

Yes, it's cleaner now, but, IMO, with these lines Plastik loses its integrity, its cuteness: I've just installed new style. With dots previous Plastik style was a one whole style - no parts apart - with every part well suited to each other. And now, these lines are foreign for me :) or :( - :) Is it possible to remain previous dotes - they are stylish, really :)

OK, one more note on "dots" vs "lines":

dots on scrollbar fit dots on toolbar's edge, taskbar applet separators.

Thanks for you feedback.

I wanted to get rid of the dots because they look somehow ugly on the scroll bar gradient, especially with a button color other than gray and actually I like the lines. ;)

Well, in case there are others who prefer dots to the lines I will revert to them and maybe fine tune them a bit... :)

Thank's for still posting this here :) Besides loving this thing I was wondering if this will be default in kde 3.2?

Thanks but - No, it won't be the KDE 3.2 default.

I think it's a bad idea to change KDEs default style for every minor release. Not that advanced people who maybe don't even know that there is a possibility to change the style and are used to Keramik would find it annoying to accustom to the new style; whereas people who don't like the look of Keramik and know what they want can just switch to another style...
Secondly, Plastik is just not as technical "perfect" as Keramik; E.g. there are some minor issues like pixel errors in KDE 3.2 konqueror tab bars I've not been able to fix so far. Some might not even notice them but IMO it *could* be bad for KDEs fame or what and I don't want to take the responsibility for that. :)

The 'thumb' handles on scroll bars are too subtle with the color scheme (default) from kdeartwork CVS.

My suggestion would be to make them much more apparent/darker/deeper/whatever :).

Currently I can hardly see them but my eyes and brain know they're supposed to be there. Then what happens is that I kind of notice they're there (every so slightly) and have to refocus my eyes on them because they're really distracted by this point. Messes with my brain :)

Thank you for my new default style and deco!

Yes, the scrollbar deco is one thing I don't like very much too. I will try to improve them but actually I don't have an idea of how at the moment. :)

I used it to install correctly:
./configure --prefix=/usr --datadir=/usr/share --libdir=/usr/lib

Maybe, it will work in Mandrake

- highlight column headers like buttons.

Example: I open "Find FIles" now my mouse passes over the name column header, it should have two horizontal stripes top and bottom like buttons.

- highlight slider controls when mouse passes over them. The little thing that you move on a slider should also be highlighted when the mouse passes over a slider area

- have some way to differntiate between tolbar rows. Maybe a bel like in Keramik, but hopefully not as strong of a bevel.

- scrollbar should also be highlighted like buttons, with two vertical stripes
