all of you grow a pair of balls and learn to like linux and kde for what they are, instead of try to have them look like something else.

parent post should learn to respect others work, and dont bother with the "this isn't his/her work it's microsoft's" because it obviously took some time

ok. i can agree with you on the fact that this took time and work therefore it desirves some credit, but i do not think that this is the forum for this kind of work. Considering that this site is for linux and kde related work. and this takes kde and attempts to make it look like the competition. now dont think im just saying this because its windows though I feal the same way about the mac themes too. and I use both windows and os x as well as linux w/ kde.

yes. (no I just think that it, kde, should have its own unique look or looks and not emulate something elses, but fuckit theres no kde police or anything so do whatever)

This is copyrighted work. You can't take Microsofts work and release it under LGPL. It's not legal, and should be removed.

People are using Linux because it's free. Please keep KDE clean.

Don't download stuff that's not legal.

So why MacOS-like styles can be "reproduced"? Even these themes are copyrighted...

It's not working, I had a error about a directory not existing. You forget to change the second line to /usr/src/packages from /usr/src/RPM. Great package otherwise, thanks!

Just thought I would let you know that your first screen shot here caused an argument in my office as to what OS was being pictured.

No matter what I said or what I pointed out, there were several people that will not believe that it is not a screen shot of a different OS.

I have not had a chance to check it out beyond the screen shots, but even if it doesn't work for me on my wife's FC4 x86_64 box (she is a complete Linux nube and this would be PERFECT for her is it will) I have to offer my congratulations on how close you got.

Nice job!

this one looks perfect from the screenshots but it just doesnt work with KDE 3.4

does anybody know howto change the color of the open window buttons (in taskbar) to the regular blue like under winxp ? That would be the final touch.

I'm just curious. Can m$ file a lawsuit?

This is a pretty good clone. But if you're running gnome, this guy has improved upon xp's look

It is the most popular!

well this sucks.. - I recommend NOT installing this if you are running a knoppix 3.8 hard drive install, because it removed all the minimise, maximise, close buttons from all my windows. If anyone wants to tell me how to get these back without reinstalling everything, that would be great.

I dont mean it has no buttons, I mean that after realising that the only thing this theme changed was changing the colour of the panel to blue, and changing back to the default which I had saved as a theme, the windows were boned.

Repeat - do NOT install.

well ok, setting defaults brings the buttons back. Still pretty weird though.

i was experiencing the same problem as you and figured a way to get the buttons back without reinstalling anything. First open kcontrol and go to look'n feel (i guess that's it in english, mine is in portuguese) then go to window decoration and go to the buttons tab and mark the second box so it will enable you to customize the way they are showed, then click on minimize and drag and drop it to the end of the bar name kde just right above the button options, then add all buttons you were missing like maximize and close and click apply and here they are :D

Hope i could help you and everyone else who got the same problem

I have got some problem to install the toolbar. How do i have to install that?

Report

The toolbar is a superkaramba theme. Install superkaramba, and select use theme from hard drive. Select the file labeled winbar.theme in the winbar folder.
Best thing I could figure was to make the regular taskbar transparent, and remove all the icons from it....
