Description:


This is a theme based on Xaphire, created by JJ Ying (www.jjying.cn). All credits for the artwork goes to him. I only made the port of it. I of curse had to alter it a bit because of the limits in Dekorator and Kbfx.

What the theme include:
Windeco for Dekorator (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/dekorator+0.3+rpm+%2B+src.rpm+for+All?content=35651)
Kbfx theme (http://www.kbfx.org/)
Icon theme (Xaphire icons mix with "Crystal Project Icons" by Everaldo (http://www.everaldo.com)
Wallpapers
Kicker Background
SuperKaramba systeminfo
Liquid Weather backgrounds
HowTo.
Made for my Azenis Theme.

Changelog:

8 years ago

Made new start buttons. Made for 33 pixels high!!

Added a kicker background. Made for 33 pixels high!!

Added a couple of wallpapers.

Updated the kbfx-them with new lock/log out-buttons. Also did some minor fixes with the hover tile-images.

New host. No more crappy Rapidshare.
-----------------------------------------------------
Added a SuperKaramba systeminfo.
-----------------------------------------------------
Added Liquid Weather backgrounds.
-----------------------------------------------------
Added a KDM-theme. I'm not 100% happy with it, so I might update it later.
-----------------------------------------------------
Added a HowTo. This is made for my Azenis Theme, but I think it will give enough hints to help install Xaphire.

I also made a theme-file for Dekorator (in Xaphire-theme package) so there will be no misunderstanding when you follow the HowTo.

I followed the howto but the start button looks too small. It is smaller than the bar and I don't want to make my bar smaller to fit with it. When I ajust the bar size to "small" it fits through.

this is so hard to follow, actually anything in regards to install apps on linux is a real head &&&&&&

is there a SIMPLE just download and run to install different types of themes onto mint??

can some1 direct us to a simple to follow tut on installing themes. ive downloaded the how-to for this theme and can not locate this kbfx thingy....

i say this is the BIGGEST flaw for Linux, not easy to follow and install basic things...my point of view that is.

so can some1 please direct simple instructions on how to do this - and please no irrelevant posts on how wrong i am with the flaws of linux - just tuts please

Nice theme.

Just so you know, the license you are describing is called Creative Commons, if you want to call it that. You can call it copyrighted, or you don't have to call it anything. I find your claim perfectly sensible.

Let me try to explain it to anybody who has a problem with licensing. He and Ying are allowing this theme to be used. You are not allowed to make money off of it. If anybody makes money off of it they are not only in violation of the clear legal rights of licensing, it also makes the violators rude and crass.

Anyone who violates Creative Commons is a real jerk. Grow up.

And why do you want to do that, and who do you think wants to download it? I don't understand if your release is for Windowblinds or if it is for KDE?

If you are going to download the theme I made and use it for making a Windowblinds-theme, you will find that there are a lot of artwork missing. And also, if you do a little search you will find that the complete Xaphire Windowblinds-theme is already out there. I bought the Xaphire-theme in order to make my theme, and I have been given approval from JJ Ying to release it here under the condition (JJ Ying's words): "as long as it does not work for Windows"

If you are going to make a KDE-theme, I don't care less, do as you wish. My guess is that you will fail to make a proper theme.

Any way, I will email JJ Ying about this and let him decide what to do about the theme you say you will release.

I will also delete this theme depending on your and others response in this matter. I only uploaded this because others might want to use it, but I mainly made it for myself. Find it sad that ppl is nagging about license when I already said earlier that I have permission for this.

Perhaps, but this does not work for Windows. In the Linux-world we dont take charge for things like in the windows-world (well some do).

Permission to release this here was given from JJ Ying if that is what you are wondering.

It seems the dekorator theme doesn't work. Install new theme->/Xaphire_Theme0.5/Xaphire_Theme0.5/DeKorator/->I select the file->progress bar reaches 100% and then nothing. No theme appears in the list. What might be the problem?
Thanks.

I don't know what the problem is, but you could try to decompress the Xaphire-theme.tar.gz to home/your_user_name/.kde/share/apps/deKorator/themes Then go back to kcontrol ad press "Set Theme Paths".

About the KDM-theme, you might need to reboot.

OK so Dekorator part worked just fine after unpacking.
But KDM theme still won't add up even after rebooting (

Nevermind, already sorted that out (unpacking and manually editing kdmrc).
So I've installed everything and it's awesome. But what is that "liquid weather" thing? I've found nothing about it in the manual.

I made the backgrounds for Liquid Weather after I made the howto. Need to update it but I don't have enough time any more. You find Liquid Weather here:
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Liquid+Weather+%2B%2B?content=6384

You will find info on how to install the backgrounds there.
