Description:

Skulpture is a GUI style addon for KDE programs. It features a classical three dimensional artwork with shadows and smooth gradients to enhance the visual experience.

Skulpture has been designed to be light and easy on eyes; many distracting borders or graphical elements have been removed or replaced by simpler artwork. See NOTES and README for additional information.

Skulpture is released as source code under the GNU GPL version 3 license; see INSTALL for installation instructions and COPYING for additional information.

Gentoo build kindly provided by Franz Fellner, Thanks! For binary packages, please check with your distribution.

Hey, just finished updating the Kubuntu packages to 0.2.0 in the PPA. Give them a couple of hours to build and get put into the archives. Enjoy! I know I am :)

Thanks for such a beatiful style, love it!
I noticed you already released a new version here http://skulpture.maxiom.de/ (oops, sorry to spoil ;-)) so I made an experimental Gentoo Ebuild http://files.kucrut.org/ebuild/x11-themes/skulpture/skulpture-0.1.9.20.ebuild (you can add it to your download section if you want to skulptor). Gentoo folks, use at your own risk! :P

Thanks kucrut, just remember that the version of the snapshot changes frequently, so your ebuild will soon fail to fetch the source.

That's OK, it's just an experimental ebuild anyway (as i couldnt wait for the stable one).
Oh, if you dont mind me asking, is it skulpture or GTK Engines QT that's causing some GTK apps (firefox and easytag in my case) fail to launch if called from kde menu but not from an x-term? Didn't have this problem before using skulpture, but i'm not really sure... Or maybe it's kde? ;-)

Some versions of the GTK+ bridge cannot handle zero-sized scroll buttons, so you may need to disable the option in Skulpture that allows the scroll bar to cover the arrows. Disabling only works with 0.1.3, but not the 0.1.9 snapshots.

The option should work again (0.1.9.23).

I am having some troubles with horizontal scrollbar (and much more rarely with vertical) in Firefox using gtg-qt-engine-kde4 and Sculpture style, screenshot: http://ipicture.ru/Gallery/Viewfull/7539436.html

There was no such glitches with Oxygen :(

The style bridge engine probably has problems with scrollbars covering the arrows. Report that bug to the GTK-Qt4 authors, and in the meantime disable that option in the Skulpture configuration dialog. Disabling does not work in 0.1.9 snapshots, you need 0.1.3 stable version.

Report

SeaJey

And where config file is placed?

Report

SeaJey, there should be a style configuration dialog (the button next to the combobox in systemsettings, where you selected Skulpture style). If there is not, you did not compile with KDE extensions.

Finally found this setting, thanks for advice.

i'm a little confused.
are there two snapshots? 1.3.5 and 1.9.12 (from your webpage)?

Report

C

skulptor

11 years ago

You are right, DonVla, there are currently two branches:

* 0.1 branch has 0.1.3.5 snapshot for an eventual 0.1.4 release,
* 0.2 branch has 0.1.9.16 snapshot, approaching a 0.2.0 release.

Since it will take some time until 0.2 is stable, I will keep maintaining a 0.1 stable branch. This development model may be confusing, but it has its advantages.

Both snapshots are provided without any testing, but you are free to try them and report bugs and/or suggestions. To the 0.1 branch only fixes (security, stability, usability) are applied, though.

thanky you, mighty skulptor.
imo skulpture should be the default style for kde4.

Finally something new and beautiful. I think this should be the default for KDE 4.2.

Oxygen makes great icons, but honestly, when you compare the oxygen window decorations and style to apple/vista it just doesn't match up. This is gorgeous, i love the animation, and i love how the progress bars start out in the middle. this is great!

I am very glad that you like Skulpture, sparxxxie, but the majority of users would like to keep Oxygen as default style.

Thanks SeaJey! :) Yesterday I came up with an idea for a completely different style, but first I have to finish Skulpture.

Sorry for the update noise, but I have good news for Kubuntu users that did not compile from source, but used the Debian package, and as such, did not get the window decorations due to some differences in KDE 4 paths.

Thanks to nixternal's awesome work, Skulpture is now in Kubuntu Hardy PPA repository. I am not really familiar with those repositories, but the download link should guide you to the address.

The packaged version is a 0.1.3.5 snapshot (you can download source from the Skulpture home page), so some feedback would be nice.

Thanks,
Christoph

No problem! By the way, I just built it for Intrepid as well and put it up in the same spot as the Hardy version. In the Intrepid version I created a patch to fix the single clicking in system settings :)

Keep on rocking my favorite theme!

Cool, added it. No wonder I failed to build a Hardy package, looks like the needed magic for Intrepid is considerably simpler :)
