Ok, I finally decided to figure out what is wrong with cantata. The problem is in the Shortcut handler destructor. It tries to use QApplication instance, but QApplication seems to be already gone at this point. I'm not that great QT expert so i'm not sure how to fix that (and code is quite messy!) but after removing call to instance it seems to work.

Use branch 'five' of https://github.com/cfeck/skulpture

To build, cd into src, run qmake-qt5, make, then copy the libskulpture.so into QT5_DIR/plugins/styles

Thanks! I successfully compile and install it on Kubuntu 16.10 - all works well! At last I glad to see my favorite theme Skulpture in KDE5!!! Please post info about this in news on your site http://skulpture.maxiom.de/ for make other Skuplture theme fans happy too!

Thanks for so beautiful theme! Can you create QtCurve preset (.qtcurve settings file) for easier installing without compiling from sources? Or your theme will not work without compiling?

Someone who ported the kde-look.org site to store.kde.org incorrectly moved this to QtCurve category, but Skulpture is not a QtCurve setting.

I'm on a new period with KDE (away from XFCE4) and Skulpture is the way to make KDE look like I want the gui to look, with not so much empty and useless space. With Skulpture one can set this up with pixel precision.
GTK2 apps looks ok to. Just add a .gtkrc-2.0 with a line for the font you use. Like this: "gtk-font-name="FreeSans Regular 11"". And add a link with the name .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 pointing to .gtkrc-2.0. Those files should be on the highest herarki level among the config files in your home directory.
The reason that I'm here,writing this, is that I was on the way to list me as a fan of Skulpture but was told that I already was one. ;-)

Thanks for your comment! In addition to supporting recent KDE 4 versions, a port to Qt5 is available in the "five" branch at http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=scratch%2Fcfeck%2Fskulpture.git

To build, cd into src, run qmake-qt5, make, then copy the libskulpture.so into QT5_DIR/plugins/styles.

(and sorry for the late reply)

Last commit from 2014. Is this "done", work on progress or basicly abandoned?

No. It seems to work fine, but configuration is missing (which is not so great but I can live with that). Skulpture is my favorite style of all times so I was really looking forward for port to the qt5 (breeze is okish, but i really prefer skulpture) but I coulnd't find any package. So I concluded that there was no official release. How much needs to be done to have official release? I can try to help (I'm C++ programmer, my Qt is bit rusty though).

Oh no, it seems that cantata crashes when running with skulpture. I guess there is a lot to do after all.

Do you have a backtrace? I tried compiling it, and only got a dialog asking for a MPD server setup, which I do not have.

Hi,

Am I right, you do not plan to change Skulpture to be compatible with Qt 5?

Thank you,

If you do not want to compile it yourself on your system, you have to wait until someone provides updated Kubuntu packages.

Yes, seems that this is issue in packaging, not in skuplture theme, force installing without looking dependencies solve the problem.

I create the issue about dependency problems in Kubuntu 13.10 and Skulpture theme on KDE 4.11 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kde-style-skulpture/+bug/1197261 - please vote all who affected too.

Seems that the problem with kde-window-manager package in KDE 4.11:
$ aptitude show kde-window-manager
Package: kde-window-manager
Breaks: kde-style-skulpture

Maybe there are some incomportables or bugs with new kde, or only packaging issue?
