just a note for other themes that may benefit of this function:
Kde-max (gray preserved)
Titan-5 Lt (gray preserved, buttons and strips changed)
Skroll (just button color change, preserving blacks)
Dark-Look (gray buttons preserved)
plastic thin (gray buttons preserved)
there may be others, these are the ones I found =) - Feb 11 2006
Getting 3 different shape buttons would be nice, but would force user to use that
scheme and not,for example, swap buttons
(having squared maximize at left of rounded minimize would be hugly),
and this scares me a bit since already isn't a "really generic" deco.... - Feb 11 2006
For chaninja icon theme I'm unsure, if I find a good way to modify the chaninja
script to auto generate an onyx version I'll upgrade, but's a difficult task
and I can't directly modify the Chaninja theme without permissions,
but Chaninja seems to be dead/dispersed/unwilling to reply all the mail I sent him on various address =( . - Feb 11 2006
I understand, but releasing a lot of different packages to change just the blue
areas would be a big waste of resources, while the "hue colorizing method" can
save a lot: silver stays silver and blue
changes to green, red, purple, or wathever you want in just some clicks, and for onyx, onyx will stay onyx and still the
other color (I think an orange-red will be the base, onyxlava? ) can change to whatever you want.
I'll add some explainin preview to the mockup before this evening. - Feb 11 2006
Added a new mockup as third image, some
"more classical" buttons that turns blue
to green when hovered and to red when clicked (minimize button is hovered in
the mockup).
Please comment so I can decide if these are good or it's better to return to old

(for multicolor: seems motyR did a wonderful work out of my hue-colorizing
idea, so I'm planning just an onyx (black) release since the blue color will
probably be changeable in deKorator 0.3) - Feb 11 2006
Ok, since you like number one (fist row in the mockup)
I'll try to have full deco ready with that buttons in a pair of days. Stay tuned! - Feb 10 2006
use latest QTcurve release (I'm using 0.30), glass settings for everything AND
for menus (I choosed glass and then customized to add glass also to menu).

For the hue issue (different color schemes) the whole png of the theme can
be converted with "mogrify mockup.png -modulate 100,100,X" where last X is the
shift value for the hue (eg: 50 for green, 200 does the same as 0).
This is possible since theme has just one saturated color and one unsaturated
(gray), and would apply to a lot of bicolor themes for dekorator too.
I'm not sure if hue-shifting or "plain hue-setting for whole image" can be
applied directly in dekorator, I'm asking motyR - Feb 09 2006
Please check third screenshot mockup and comment.... - Feb 09 2006
Thank you. For help and pin buttons, I just forgot *blush*, I'll check how other
dekorator themes implements them and add.

For differents colors actually there's a little issue: since theme is bicolored,
nut one of the color has little saturation, the best way would be a script
to change hue to the whole decoration (same as colorize kde function but for
just the hue), since isn't implemented anywhere, I think I need to release whole
new decorations packages (one for color,
this limits the number....) - Feb 09 2006
Same styling means what? is the color, the
buttons border too squared, the button
signs too much "melted inside" or what? The gradient behind buttons is the same as
the the title-center part....
You tell of "shading and shape". For the shape I think the issue is they are not
"rounded", for the shading what improvement could they have, more
contrasted? Please specify. - Feb 09 2006

1) An option to run a script when an
interface is started.

I also checked how to do: in mydock.cpp
(line 147 in 0.67.2 version):

void mydock::updateDockIcon(int mode)
+ if ( (c_icon == 0) && (mode == 1) )
+ {
+ #*exec script code here*#
+ system("scripttoexecute");
+ }

Where scripttoexecute is a variable got
from a little dialog.
*would need stdlib.h include* - Dec 21 2005

Download the package here and the RAR
package at
(scroll down to "icones & PNG" then
downloads "PNGs" link)

decompress the chaninjabuilder package and
the .rar package , then enter in
chaninjabuilder directory and ,if you
have kdialog installed:
doubleclick builderset .

Follow the infos and you will get the
Chaninja*.tar.bz2 package inside the
chaninjabuild directory. Install this package (Chaninja*.tar.bz2 with uppercase C )as a normal iconset. - Nov 09 2005
Whoops, you right, corrected (with better pause and stop icons) in 0.6, out in few days - Sep 22 2005
???? "Amorok" and "Amarok" icons are not
included in this theme, you are using the

BTW, thanks for the other suggestions. - Sep 21 2005
