Description:

A simple low-contrast style based on Fnis. I always liked that style but it doesn't display long titles accurately. Once I fixed some details I decided to expand it a little and modify it to match my overall settings. The goal was to keep it simple and usable.

Installation:

Inside the tarball you can find the following folders: ultra, ultra2 and stars. The fist two contain the styles while the third contains the optional rating stars.

To install the styles:
Copy the folders to $home/.kde/share/apps/amarok/themes or go to configure -> appearance -> Install new style.

To install the custom stars:
Copy the content of the stars folder to /usr/share/apps/amarok/images/. A backup of the original files is recommended since it affects all styles.

The fonts in the screenshot look a little blurred, that's because I had to resample the picture, there's a 300KB limit.

If something doesn't work as expected, please include any details you consider relevant so I can fix it. Any suggestions or requests are welcome, if they are doable I might include them in future updates. I hope you like it.

Thank you for your comments. Yes, we are all newbies at one time or another. Sometimes I want to do stuff but I can't find documentation anywhere, that's disappointing.
