Description:

I know you're probably thinking "jeez, im so tired of seeing all this acqua crap!" But I just had to make this change and upload it because someone else might appreciate it.

There is a HOW-TO included for those who are not familiar with the general procedure.

The style (stipple on the windows and transparent menus, etc) is not included and is availible from http://www.mosfet.org/liquid/.

The window decoration I modified from the original "kwinacqua", I only changed the buttons, color of the active title bar, and I curved the bottom window corners (the code of which i borrowed from "kwinacqua_mod").
NOTE: I'm not a C++ programmer, so sorry for the very hackishly done code.

As far as colors I played around until it looked right and uploaded my kcsrc file.

I also uploaded my splash screen which has its own screenshot.

Any suggestions are welcome!
I would love to have feedback

in my user account (not in my root account) I don't have any kdisplay directory, does I need to create it to perform
"Copy 'white-acqua.kcsrc' to '~/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/
white-acqua.kcsrc'"
as indicated in the how to ????

i really like this window decoration, looks perfect with liquid, but i think the active title bar might look good stippled like the inactive one.

i might try and figure out the code one of these days to help you out...despite how i barely know c++ either.

Hi,

i have a standard Mandrake 9.0 Installation. When i try to run the configure script the following error comes up:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

How can i solve this ?

QT3 is installed, and symlinking in /usr/lib doesnt work. I made a ln -s qt3 qt2 and a ln -s qt3 qt. Because of the logfile i thought he wont find the needed resources..

Pls help, because i like to have curved corners...

Greetingz

I had the same prob and was able to fix it by:

Installing QT3.1.1.
Re-link /usr/lib/qt->/usr/lib/qt-3.1.1
When ./configuring, make sure to use the "--enable-mt" argument. And if the configure script still cant find your QT dirs, use the "--with-qt-dirs=/your/qt/root" option for configure.
This was my configure command that worked:
./configure -prefix=/opt/kde --enable-mt --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt-3.1.1

Hope this helps.

I am having the same problem as stated above...I have MDK9.1...I was curious where you downloaded QT3.1.1 from? I could not find a mdk.i586.rpm for qt3.1.1 and was not sure if it would compile on my system if I downloaded the source. I downloaded a src.rpm and it complained about tons of discrepencies. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I will be able to try, if you can make a .deb file of it, PLEASE.

I hate doing Make and downloading the files I need to install it. Thanks

I'm sorry but I don't know how to make a deb package, and from what I hear it's rather involved. Installing from source really isnt difficult, just follow the included HOW-TO.

all right, what is all needed to compile it. Such as Make, and this and that ?

I'm a newbie at compiling still.
Thanks

just do 'apt-get install make libqt3 libqt3-dev libqt3-mt libqt3-mt-dev' and you should be set for installed programs, then do:

tar zxvf white-acqua.tar.gz
cd white-acqua/window-decor
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
su
make install

and that should do it for the window decoration. The splash screen and color scheme are very easy if you read the HOW-TO.

If you get any errors then email me and I can probably help you out since I use Debian too.

mosfet is not responsible for the curved corners. I have not seen a mosfet liquid version that does have curved corners, this is part of my window decoration and part of some other acqua window decorations. I hope this answers your question. Mosfet does not have these.

As far as QT I am running version 3.1.1 and it works fine. I am using Debian and from what I see in apt-cache you might try the package equivelents for libqt3, libqt3-dev, libqt3-mt, and libqt3-mt-dev for your distrobution.

I hope I have been helpful, but if you need further assistance please email me at [email protected]

Hi,

This is a somewhat general question:

I have downloaded and installed mosfet's liquid for KDE3.0.x (not the latest one).
I set liquid up in the control centre pages and it seems to work OK. BUT...on many screenshots I see people's windows are now curved at the top instead of 90deg corners. How do I get this effect??? Is this a function of Liquid? What am I missing? My windows adopt the proper colour scheme and look Liquid-ified but no curved corners......grrrrrr

Thanks
Mike

im not sure if you read what i wrote, or if i just didnt explain it well enough, but I added the curved corners on the window decoration. mosfet has a different window decoration than the one here.

Hi,

Sorry abou the confusion. I know that mosfets liquid uses diff window decorations. I was asking this question here because I didn't know who else to ask...(assumed you have good knowledge of mosfets liquid). I just want to know why, after installing mosfets liquid, the corners on my windows arent rounded. Left a comment at the Mosfet's Liquid page but no reply.

BTW, I havent been able to get White-Liquid (window-decor) to configure on my machine. It fails when trying to test QT: configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 2.2.2) (libraries) not found.

I have QT3.0.4 installed in the standard location (/usr/lib/qt->qt-3.0.4).

Any help on this one?

Thanks
Mike
