newseven Transformation Pack for KDE 4

I've been inspired by the
Vistar7 - Windows 7 Transformation Pack http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=104232
to make a better Windows7 Transformation Pack, without torrent download and of course without adding a new user ;)

It was made with
- Plymouth:
Seven Plymouth Theme (GPL) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=128652
- KDM:
Vistar7 KDM Theme (GPL) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=117877
- Mouse Theme:
Kubuntaero - Aero based w/ animated logo (GPL) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=108599
- Aurorae Theme:
seven aurorae (GPL) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=120296
- Wallpaper:
Tux vs Windows 7 Fish (CC) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=104561
Tux vs. XP Wallpaper http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=47003

- KDE Splash:

- Usericon:

- Icontheme:
Win7 Icon theme (proprietary/unknown) (source: Vistar7 - Windows 7 Transformation Pack)
- Color:

- QtCurve: Windows 7 QtCurve Theme (GPL) http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=141539
- Fonts:
Segoe UI, Calibri and Cambri fonts from Microsoft (proprietary) (source: Vistar7 - Windows 7 Transformation Pack)
- Sound:
all Windows 7 sound themes (proprietary) (source: Vistar7 - Windows 7 Transformation Pack)
- Plasma Theme:
Vistar7 plasma theme, based on Glassified (GPL) (source: Vistar7 - Windows 7 Transformation Pack)


Installation:
Maybe it's good idea to quit KDE and install it from console (STRG + ALT + F1)
- change to Transformation Pack directory
- chmod +x install.sh
- sudo ./install.sh


If you are not able to be root, use the install_userfiles.sh
But note that it will not install the whole Package

Deinstallation:
- chmod +x deinstall.sh
- sudo ./deinstall.sh (or deinstall_userfiles.sh)

I have tested it on Kubuntu with KDE4.8, i don't know how it work on other Distributions. Please tell me if or if not work on others

ps: i know, the look is not perfect yet, so if you can help to make it better you are welcome, write a comment

Hy, your theme is absolutely awesome! Probably the most work in this site! Very very beautiful!
How can I erase the long application names from the tray? I only want to see the icons of the programmes! If I install your theme... I am allowed to select which part of the desktop will be changed?
Sorry for the long message, btw I am a beginner of Kubuntu, and Its annoying me because I used Windows7 before.

you have to install and configure Smooth Tasks, there is an option.

But there is something new, Icon Tasks, it looks and feels more like Win7, you better use it instead:
kde-look.org/content/show.php/?content=144808

Maybe i will update this Themepack and and add it to the package

Thx! My only problem is that I can't install the icon theme you wrote me.

It was not an Icon Theme, it was a Plasmoid.
You have to compile it befor you can use it. If you dont know how to compile, use Smooth Tasks instead, it should be in the repos allready.
After this, you can add it to the Panel:

Hi all, I may be rude and you may rate me down, but : WHY ?

Why do you try transforming your absolutely awesome OS into the priceless sh** sold by Tinysoft ?
This is a thing I can't understand !
I enjoy showing everbody that I have Linux, that I can use it, I can customize it as I want !

^^

That's it.
Anyways,your theme really looks like Windope's ;)

I know what you mean and i don't use win for years, but I think the design of Win7 is still quite beautiful. Also people who switch from windows 7 to kde need's something familiar

Can you explain what is happen? Did you ever had problems with compositing and kwin effects? Wich KDE version do you use?

The pack activate compositing and some kwin desktop effects, maybe its a problem with your graphic card driver.
Try to deactivate the desktop effects (open the ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc and change "Enabled=true" to "Enabled=false" in the "[Compositing]" section)

I'd love to use this, but I use openSUSE which doesn't use Plymouth. Will the test of the script still work?

I hope so, the installscript normally would not install the plymouth theme if SUSE was detected

Wow! It works really good here on my Kubuntu 10.04 with KDE 4.5 :)

But you said you changed the install script in 0.2, but what did you modify? Is it something that makes it worth installing the new version?
