Hi again

Ok so with a bit of hacking around I figured it out. I tried to add this using the 'post additional howto link' but it seems to have disapeared into the ether....so here it is:

The INSTALL documetn in the clearcase widget theme doesnt give very good directions so here is my take on the process (carried out on kubuntu 5.0.4).

1) Make sure you have automake1.6 and kdebase-dev packages installed:

sudo apt-get install automake1.6 kdebase-dev

2) Temporarily set automake1.6 to be the default:

sudo update-alternatives --config automake

You will see some info like that shown below:

There are 3 alternatives which provide `automake'.

Selection Alternative
-----------------------------------------------
+ 1 /usr/bin/automake-1.4
* 2 /usr/bin/automake-1.8
3 /usr/bin/automake-1.6

Press the appropriate number to make 1.6 the default

3) Generate the configure scripts using the Makefile.cvs:

make -f Makefile.cvs

4) Revert your automake to the original setting (if desired):


sudo update-alternatives --config automake

You will see some info like that shown below:

There are 3 alternatives which provide `automake'.

Selection Alternative
-----------------------------------------------
+ 1 /usr/bin/automake-1.4
2 /usr/bin/automake-1.8
* 3 /usr/bin/automake-1.6

In my case I pressed 2 to get my system back to using automake 1.8

5) Run the configure script:

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

6) Run make and hope it builds ok:

make

7) Install:

sudo make install

8) Use the kcontrol panel to change to the new theme.
