Kore Suite

Beryl/Emerald Themes

Description:

There is hope and its called: KORE
Kore is a completely new attempt at finally giving KDE a constant, stylish and modern identity.

This project aims to replace all that was default and redraw your whole desktop. So the category "Emerald-Theme" is unfitting, but there is nothing like a Suite category here.
If you are a really skilled ICON DESIGNER or QT STYLE SKINNER,
contact me at the email found in my profile.

I'm happy for every help i get !

Thanks for checking it out, more Screenshots to come,

The emerald theme Kore sucks. Well, only the buttons. Too small. They look bad because of that and they're not as useful as they would be if they were bigger (smaller target, harder to hit) or if you can't make them smaller, at least make them on the bottom of titlebar, so user will at least more easily resize the window.

To get it working:
1)Download "Kore for ThemeManager"
2)Rename the file to "Kore.kth"(I think it's .kth but you can find this out on your own;-))
3)Open Kcontrol (Hit Alt+F2 type "kcontrol")
4)Go to FeelNLook (or so, I'm using German language so I don't know) and to this symbol where theme packages are shown.
5)Import "Kore.kth" where you saved it.
6)It should work now. But if you don't like very very small fonts you should change them;-)

Where do I get the actual color files to change the menu and text colors? Emerald is only changing window decorations, and theme manager didn't change much at all.

Well Kore is more awesome than every Windows and every Mac Aqua Design and every other KDE design.
I just miss a white design (just like this one, but all black parts turned into white parts).
I also want to ask when the next version will come out cuz it's already been a long time.

Hi Code2

Fantastic theme you have created.

I am worried however that there have been no updates, news or comments from yourself in quite some time.

Is the Kore Suite still actively developed?

Kind regards

First - Your theme looks amazing!

I got the beryl part of the theme installed with no problem.

But, I'm trying to get the KMenu to look like yours (somewhat like Vista) -- but I cannot figure out where or how to do that...

Any thoughts?

How do I install the theme? I use Beryl, installed the Kore Default theme, but I have several problems. No icons, no black background in explorer, and the minimize, maximize and quit buttons are very very small. Can anyone help?

Help, all the buttons in OpenOffice have gone! When I use the Kore theme, there are no buttons but only tectt to click on. Can anybody help me to fix that?

I'm really dying looking forward this icon theme... hoping won't be just a mod of another one. The original work I see in these you did as preview, make me wonder how much these will look beautiful !

Hey, If you could post the 128x128 .png files that you have already completed I would like to try to make a Kore mod of the BC Tango Icon theme.

One suggestion: I'd like a Kore theme like the minimal one, but with larger CLOSE and MINIMIZE and MAXIMIZE buttons. I need always some time to hit them^^-even if they were nearly twice as large, they would fit in the window decoration. you could call it just "large buttons" or so. would be REALLY great!!!!!

thanks for your fast reply, i've already installed the most actual kbfx RPM, and i can run the kbfx settings program. but when i change the menu style from kde to kbfx, nothing happens. same with all other settings.

I simply LOVE this awesome theme, but I have a question: Your K menu looks also incredibly awesome, but how did you get it to look like this?

Report

Hi

I'm not the artist, but I can answer it... This isnt kmenu you see... this is the KBFX applet.

Unfortunately, the theme as published here, is broken for current kbfx version.

The next KBFX Release is due sometimes this month probably, and as I fixed the theme, I will make it available for download in the fixed version, with all artist tributes going to code2 (haven't seen him nor news here for a long time :-)

If you want to reconfigure your system earlier, contact me, so I can provide you the fixed theme and tell you, which kbfx version to use.

else - watch www.kbfx.org for soon coming news on kbfx

First off, thanks for your work. It's great!

However, the theme manager package does not seem to work in Kubuntu Edgy or Feisty, and I was wondering if you could put the color scheme you use separately.

I don't mean to beg or anything, because I am certainly grateful for what you've already done. But, if you have free time :)

works fine, you just have to use kcontrol instead of system settings to access theme manger. i'm on kubuntu fiesty. my only problem is that FF doesn't like to start if i have the domino config running :\

This suite needs a color scheme... otherwise it is broken.
