Mak-Taste Bespin

Hy there!

Ok, this is the theme that I am using since a few weeks from now.

Reached some kind of stability since I stoped the compulsive-mod that Im use to... I decided to share it. (Also the encouraging comment that appeared in the Mak-Taste Icons post helped me to publish it).

Here it is.

Of course, you will need the latest Bespin Style installed. Will be able to find it here:

This dependencies helped me out to get the job done (probably more than the necessary ones... it does not matter to me, since it works flawlessly):

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdebase-dev kdelibs5-dev libplasma-dev kdebase-workspace-dev subversion

The screenshots where taken from my KDE 4.76 under Kubuntu 11.10.

Thats all, Cheers!!!

Hi mate.

I like your theme so i tried to install it. Im using Kubuntu 12.04 stable.

## First:

[email protected]:~/cloudcity# apt-get install build-essential cmake kdebase-dev kdelibs5-dev libplasma-dev kdebase-workspace-dev subversion
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libplasma-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Unable to locate package kdebase-dev

besides the problem with the 'libplasma-dev' package, that can be replaced correctly with this one 'kdelibs5-dev'; the 'kdebase-dev' package is not supported anymore on (k)ubuntu 12.04. What replaces it?

## Second:

after having installed all the packages (except kdebase-dev), this is the error i get:

[email protected]:~/cloudcity/build# make
Scanning dependencies of target QtBespin

make[2]: *** [blib/CMakeFiles/QtBespin.dir/FX.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [blib/CMakeFiles/QtBespin.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

thus my installation fails. can you please help me with this? i really would like your theme to work on my computer.

thanks a lot, and ... for the screenshots i saw, it's a fantastic theme (as long as you can make it working hehe).
so, keep it up, and please help.

Sorry Vince, I missed your question and just saw it... apologies.

In Kubuntu you should open a terminal and paste:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hrvojes/kde-goodies && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kde-style-bespin

Then logout, reboot and you will found the style in the appareance options. From THERE, you will be able to install this theme (option import theme.)

The old school way to install (real latest version of bespin):

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdebase-dev kdelibs5-dev libplasma-dev kdebase-workspace-dev subversion

svn co

tar -xjf bespin-x.y.z.tar.bz2 && cd cloudcity

./configure && make && make install && sudo make install
