your style made me to try kde once again(i'm jumping between GNOME,XFCE,KDE quite often; although KDE has it's chance kinda rare ^^). today it's like 4/5 day on kde, konqueror got mozilla's bookmarks and i enjoy it as my web browser. anyway, probably i will try GNOME/XFCE again, maybe in a short time.

ok, just wanted to tell that it was your style that made me try kde again. thanks for your work.

Awesome work by the way, I love to see something beautiful and original among so many dumbass aqua, longhorn, etc. ripoffs!

Haha, I found it! :happy:

I was having the same output:

grep: /lib/libacl.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /lib/libacl.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/lib/libacl.la' is not a valid libtool archive

then I googled for this libacl.la and soon discovered I didn't have the libacl1-dev package... i installed it, and the output changed to:

grep: /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/lib/libattr.la' is not a valid libtool archive

Then my guess was that I didn't have libattr1-dev... BINGO! I installed it, and then make spit out a ton of warnings, but, anyway, I'm using activeheart right now. YAY!

I'm using Kubuntu 5.10 "breezy badger". I hope this can help you.

I've tried two variations of "./configure" which work, but make doesn't fly at all. It's error city.

Has anyone complied this for KDE 3.5?

I love its look and customizability. I haven't explored nearly half what it's capable of doing, but I already love this style. Keep up the great work!

when I run configure, towards the very end it gives me this error:

...
checking for rpath... yes
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

how do I fix it?

I **think** you need the KDE-devel package installed in order to make it work, but I'm not sure. I checked around and it turned out that that was what I was missing here...

You should enclose kde-config ... in backticks (`), not single quotes:

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

If you can't find the backtick on your keyboard - it's usually to the left of the "1" key - then just run

kde-config --prefix

and use the output from that instead, e.g. if it gives you "/opt/kde" then do

./configure --prefix="/opt/kde"

Great theme!

I built (and posted http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=14569 ) a SuSE 9.1 RPM for this theme. It is such an improvement over Keramik. I applaud your design sense.

I am putting together a Color Scheme to blend it with the Crystal Icon set and I found a winamp skin that I am going to blend to match that.

This should DEFINITELY be part of the KDE default theme set.

I agree that this theme should be a part of kdeartwork package (maybe kde 3.3.1 or at least 3.4?). I installed it on both my computers and have no intension to change it for something else.

Well, this theme is awesome! BTW, do you have a homepage or an FTP where the file is located? I am going to write a gentoo ebuild for Active Heart and I need a direct link to the archive.

Hi, Has anyone compile this on Fedora Core 2 as I'm getting compilation errors when I'm compiling this on FC2. (Error due to selinux libs)

I thought that the many Active Heart fans might enjoy this. Since the author of the theme is japanese (like my gf) I figured that this is the origin of the name of the theme.

Enjoy all, and keep up the above excellent work amaterasu. I look forward to many future versions of this theme.

I am using qt 3.3.2 and kdelibs 3.2.2 with gentoo and get the following error when configuring as mentioned in the post.


checking for KDE... libraries /usr/kde/3.2/lib, headers /usr/kde/3.2/include
checking if UIC has KDE plugins available...
configure: error: you need to install kdelibs first.


The kdelibs are definitely installed.

Maybe someone can help. I also executed 'ldconfig' before running configure.

Hi, We are looking for more improvements in this style. Like to see this is the most complete style that use the most from kde style engine. So future developers can based on this.
