Sorry, I mean: could _Mosfet_ add an option to have a grey vertical stripe..? Don't know how to contact him since he hasn't got any email address on mosfet.org/liquid.html.

Also cool would be to include animated progress bars, like the one in the flash intro on www.sadeem.net/tux.html (looks kind of like liquid fire)

could you add a vertical grey stripe to the menus (like the dotNET theme)?

Does anyone know how to get a kde style to apply to non kde apps. Specifically I want to get the liquid button styles and scroll bar styles to apply to applications like limewire and openoffice

I just installed the version from the PLF site on Mandrake 9 rc2, and do not have the mack style option. Might this be a problem with rc2, or is the mack style not included anymore?

Correct.
The PLF RPM only has 1 choice... High Performance Liquid as the style... oh well...

Anyone know what happened to Mosfet.org. Mosfet himself maybe, since he's been seen here before?

I get a 404 when trying to connect. Would be a shame if it would remain silent around there. I'm a great admirer of Daniels work and would really like to see him continue.

Sorry, typo above, it should be:

http://plf.zarb.org

(btw, all the software is accessible by urpmi, no need to manually download).

I would just like to let you guys know that the PLF (http://plf.zarb.rg) always has the latest version of liquid, built for cooker, and whatever releases anyone runs (at the moment 8.2).

Not only that but a lot of other software, including KDE themes such as qnix, keramik, the Crystal icons (OK, I guess you could use the tarball for that), some Windows-type themes, and lot's of other interesting software (xine, mplayer etc with all the best options enabled).

If you have't been there, you are missing out.

So, please refrain from duplication of effort, instead, join the PLF and package more software ...

Btw, PLF members have notified Mosfet that RPMs will be maintained, but he still insists on not updating the mosfet page to reflect this. I have posted messages on the liquid page here, but it seems some people don't read.

Btw, it is unlikely that liquid will ever be in Mandrake, due to similarities to Aqua.

Finally, note that pixieplus is in Mandrake contribs, no need to try and compile it for 9.0.

Thx for info, so I can stop engaging on pixieplus. But one question is
still open. How can a normal user use plf, if he has no idea about it and those styles aren't included in the Mandrake distribution?
Can Mdk9 profit from this artwork somehow?

We (PLF) mailed Mosfet on a number of occasions to tell him that we would maintain RPMS for Mandrake, but he insists on ignoring this, and badmouthing Mandrake on his site, instead of making it easier for users to use his software by just having a link to http://plf.zarb.org

PLF does much more than just KDE themes, so we try to advertise as much as possible (which is why I am posting here, and many other places).

Anyone else who has valid content for PLF should join PLF to make one source of software that would otherwise not be appropriate (due to possible IP infringement etc) for the normal distro.

I've tried using PLF, but I can't find mosfet.

I did the urpmi -a mosfet and urpmi -a liquid to no avail.

What package should I be looking for?

Thanks

As far as I know, 9.0 beta2 uses GCC 3.1, beta3 and above use GCC 3.2. I'm pretty sure they're not compatable :-)
