You outdid yourself on this one. I especially love the midnight color scheme. The theme is colorful yet edgy, that's pretty cool. Great work. - Apr 05 2014

That makes sense, thanks for the reply! - Dec 25 2013
Sorry, I just realized I never read the previous comments (or the fact that the first commenter is a Arch and Chakra packager) and that I am asking questions that have already been answered! I just hope I did not upload a dublicate package... - Dec 24 2013
Thanks for porting Elementary to QtCurve. I have no problems with it at all. In fact, it was one of the best QtCurve themes I can find. Though, I have two questions:

1) What Plasma theme do you recommend with it (I prefer Aya, Air, and Caledonia myself)?

2)I hope I am not being rude here but I was curious on why did you make an Aurorae decoration instead of just using QtCurve to do the window decoration? Was it just a matter of preference?

Also, I packaged your QtCurve theme, Aurorae decoration, and the color scheme for Chakra; though this package should work just fine on Arch Linux:

I compiled from git on Kubuntu 11.10. When I click on the "USB Format" option in the Device Notifier it automatically mounts the device. Then the device can no longer be formatted since it's mounted. Is this some kind of bug in this program or Kubuntu? Or am I the problem?

Thanks for creating it. I have tried Chakra before but I found that it would not work properly with my network card (RTL8187b)! Otherwise, it was a very good and innovative distro. - Oct 18 2011

Thanks for listening to my suggestion and thanks for a great release. I've been using Apper from git for a while now on Kubuntu 11.10 Beta 2.

I really do prefer Apper over Muon Software Center. I especially like Apper's Updater. I really like how the Updater lists applications first and then lists the other packages that need to be updated. Also, I like how each application has its own icon in the updater. Nice touch!

However, one thing I find very misleading in Apper is the "Pending Changes" screen. Say for example if I would want to install Abiword. I would request Apper to install it. I would then click on the "Pending Changes" button to see that the only pending change is the installation of Abiword. Clicking on "Apply" reveals that there are many more pending packages to be installed. Not only that, it's contained in a pop-up! I think the "Pending Changes" screen should act more like Apper's Updater, where the packages that contain applications are listed first, followed by the other packages to be installed.

Sorry if this sounds like a complaint, it's just a suggestion. Either way, I find Apper to be the best package manager available for any distro! - Oct 10 2011
KPackagekit already has a back button. I think that dependencies should be click-able. If one clicks on a dependency, KPackagekit (or Apper) would make a new search using the name of the dependency that was clicked. Pressing the back button would take that person back to the original package he or she was looking at. Let's put that back button to good use! - Aug 02 2011

Is it possible to use other color schemes such as this one, called Escuro?

Thanks for the Firefox addon, it really does make Firefox look like a KDE app. Really should be obtainable in KDE distros out of the box!

Here is a picture of it in Firefox 7.0 (alpha 2):http://img24.imageshack.us/i/oxygenkde33firefox7a2.png/

I also used this add-on to be able to move the Firefox button to the right of the Awesomebar: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/personal-menu/ - Jul 09 2011
Hello, great job on the theme. It is the best Oxygen theme, yet! Just wanted to tell you about some nice Add-ons that can further the integration:

Personal Menu:
Quote:

XClear:
Quote:

Menu Editor:
Quote:

To get the KDE Clear button and Menu button go to your Firefox Chrome. Copy and paste the example usrChrome.css and rename it to UserChrome.css and add this to the bottom:

Quote:
/*menu button*/
#cm-menu{list-style-image:url(file:///usr/share/icons/oxygen/22x22/categories/preferences-other.png)!important;-moz-image-region:rect(0 0 0 0)!important;}
.xclear {
list-style-image: url("file:///usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/actions/edit-clear-locationbar-rtl.png") !important;
}


And, you should end up with this(Just to let you know, my paths are derived from Kubuntu Karmic):

Salem Alakum,

Musallah, this is a fantastic widget. I do not mean to complain but there seems to be a starnge problem with the time of the Night Salah. Not in time calculation or in Adhan recitation (great job on that feature), but with how the time is not actually in the widget.

Using KDE 4.5 RC2 and cannot believe this GTK theme can use KDE's "Application Colors". I am using Aava right now:Quote:.
By the way I am using the PPA provided by Kubuntu itself for these packages. And even better, I am using Firefox 4.0 beta 2 and it now uses GTK themes. Thanks for fixing how Firefox looked!

Congratulations to you (and the ones who started this theme) for working on GTK integration in KDE. - Jul 23 2010

I love that I can click on the RSS icon in the url bar in order to add a feed to Akregator or Google Reader.How can one add Amarok or another Podcast client to that "Aggregator" drop-down list?

Thanks for the web browser. What a wonderful job you guys did on it! - Jun 06 2010

I really like the idea of a podcast catcher for KDE, I like how you use an external application for the video, which is the greatest reason to hate Amarok as a podcast catcher (I do not like the video widget needed). I see much potential for this. I had a problem building Videocathcher I am on Lucid and have the required packages and could not build, so I used the 9.10 packages. After doing "sudo aptitude install kdepimlibs5-dev libqt4-sql-sqlite libboost-dev" and then using the "make" command (cmake CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=.../usr/ .. /.. works) and get 0 % built. - Apr 21 2010

I saw your Lucid wallpaper by looking through the "Desktop Activity Settings" and clicking on "get new Wallpapers". After seeing the wallpaper I immediately came here and searched for it to see if it was available as a splash screen or if I can request it! Thanks for the beautiful splash screen as you know, Kubuntu seems to have removed the Plymouth screen during some beta, in order to make the boot process go faster (and I think it was a great choice from the devs). Thanks for combining the Plymouth screen and the KDE's splash screen into to this great animation. - Apr 20 2010

Wow, no need to build and it works. Thank you for a easy to use video converter that works. Thanks for not using Mono, still a little paranoid of it. I hope your project becomes very sucessful.

By the way I converted a WMV to Vorbis on Kubuntu Karmic. It SEEMS (from the package name) that I am using the ffmpeg version from Ubuntu's repositories. - Apr 06 2010
