how did you get that authentic windows xp startbar? installed your theme but just got that windows logo, nether the start signature nor the green bitmap on the blue bar. great work, btw. :)

Hmm, why why why why WHY!? have you submitted a god damn windows xp theme, i thought the reason for linux is to get away from xp not to be lured into it, yes I probably understand you like xp but some other users don't ;) i'm not having a go at ya but im just saying my words... anyways apart from it being an xp theme its actually a pretty good rip :) well done.

I also have some more window bar themes, such as the metal window bar, that I would be happy to give you.

Nice XP Theme/Style/Icons

In the first Screenshot you have the the windows "Start" button instead of the "K-Menu". How did you do that, because I am not able to do so?

How did you change the colour of the apps in the kicker?

You might want to put this up on on sourceforge. You can't get it from your download sites.

Great work!

I also like the modifications you made in version 0.7. It gets better with every new release :)

I have two requests if you can find the time for it:

1. Could you add an option to left-align the window titles. In the current version the default is center-aligned and I haven't found a way how to change it.

2. Would it be possible to create a X11 mouse theme that duplicates the Windows mouse cursors, especially the "Windows Standard (extra large)" cursors? That would be great, especially since none of the current X11 mouse themes are large enough. In Windows I always use the "extra large" setting but I haven't found any mouse themes for X11 that are this large.

Many thanks!

Could you please tell me how to load this theme after rpm installation. I can install it without any problem. But I don't know how to load this theme on my desktop. Thanks in advance :)

go to "$HOME/.kde/share/apps/kwin/icewm-themes/"
open "default.theme" in your favourite editor.
The 5th line should say "TitleBarCentered=1", comment this line. Now it should look like this."#TitleBarCentered=1"

Reload the kde_xp style in IceWM.

Have a nice day.

Omgosh YUCK..... Well done on cloning it but YUCK!!!

And why are you using "dir" in the konsole there?

Honestly though that is but ugly compared to even just a standard keramik kde desktop.

Maybe folks switching from MS to Linux will like it. Anyway, its good to have a XP skin just for the hell of it.
