Description:

Kvantum is an SVG-based theme engine for Qt4 and KDE4, i.e. a program for styling Qt4 applications with SVG images.

Kvantum started as a fork of QuantumStyle, which is not developed anymore but whose author continued his work under another name (https://github.com/DexterMagnific/QSvgStyle). However, apart from the basic logic behind them, they are very different creatures now. In Kvantum, the emphasis is on usability, practicality and elegance.

Kvantum comes with a default dark theme, which should be used alongside the KDE/Qt4 color scheme included in the source and is inspired by the default theme of Enlightenment. Creation of such a theme for KDE was my first reason to make Kvantum but you could make themes with very different looks and feels for it; Kvantum will let you control many aspects of Qt widgets.

Please read the file INSTALL for simple instructions on compilation and installation!

For instructions on how to change configuration or make new themes, please read the files Theme-Config and Theme-Making in the doc folder!


*** Dependencies ***

Qt4 and X11 (development packages for compilation)


*** Notes ***

(1) For updating Kvantum under KDE, first switch to another style, then delete the old library and put the new one in its place (don't paste the latter over the former)!

(2) Each new theme should be accompanied by a KDE or Qt color scheme. Although Kvantum can define non-editable text colors, it relies on the color scheme for the others. It comes with a KDE color scheme as well as a Qt color definition for its default theme.

(3) Kvantum does not provide window decorations. Such jobs are done by the window manager.

(4) QuantumStyle or QSvgSyle themes are NOT compatible with Kvantum, and vice versa.

(5) A Qt5 version will come after a stable version of KDE5 has appeared in the Debian repository.




Changelog:

See ChangeLog inside the source for a more thorough list.

18 Sep 2014
------------
* Whole windows/dialogs are stylable by using of an interior element now. The section [Window] is added for that. (This new feature is used in KvGray on KDE-Look.org.)
* The slider handle will be rotated appropriately when needed if its length and width are different.
* Several fixes.

17 Aug 2014
------------
* Added optional inactive sub-states. They aren't used in the default theme though.
* The slider thickness and also the length and thickness of slider handles can be set now.
* Corrected slider position and groove.
* A more elegant rubber band.
* Don't draw ugly frame shapes or shadows (in Krita, Clementine, etc.).

8 Aug 2014
------------
* Override colors of normal, focused or pressed texts by using #rrggbb strings or valid color names like these under proper sections:

text.normal.color=white
text.focus.color=#80C0FF
text.press.color=lightgreen

If no (valid) text color is given the color scheme will be used. The default theme shows this change. However, at least in case of view items, some KDE apps may have hard-coded text colors. Please read the updated "Theme-Config.pdf"! (Thanks to "sixsixfive" for the suggestion.)
* Set the text shadow color as #rrggbb too.
* The size of radio buttons and checkboxes can be set now but those on menus will never be bigger than the default size. (Thanks to "Hombremaledico" for the suggestion.)
* Fixed the roundness of horizontal scrollbar grooves.
* Fixed some problems with reasonably thick frames and large text spacings. (Many thanks to "Hombremaledico" for pointing out the last two issues.)

31 Jul 2014
------------
* Toolbar (tool) buttons can be raised and grouped together now. The Glassy theme shows that. (see the second screenshot).
* Tooltip shadows.

First, this isn't a theme but a theme engine. Second, it has no relation to Cinnamon; it's for Qt4/KDE4.

I downloaded the latest code and compiled successfully, then moved to the desired location.

But I can't find it in System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > Applications > Widget style

The styles directory may be different in some distros. For OpenSUSE (64-bit) try "/usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles/", as is mentioned in INSTALL. Please tell me about the result!

I moved it to /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles, and still the same behavior.

does it require any updates for kde / suse ?

I had a 64-bit OpenSUSE-12.3 on VirtualBox and /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/styles/ worked with it. Another option can be /usr/lib64/kde4/plugins/styles/, where "oxygen.so" resides.

Are you sure that you closed and re-opened systemsettings after putting libkvantum.so in that folder?

And no, it doesn't require any update because, as I said above, it even worked with an old OpenSUSE.

It seems I have to use root terminal to compile the source code.

Compiling the source code under root terminal solved the issue. although the code compiles just fine under normal terminal.


I don't know if this is a common mistake or something related to my env.

anyway thx for ur patience and keep up the good work.

Good to know that you succeeded in installing it.

Most probably, for whatever reason (bad directory permissions?) others had no read permission for the compiled file and only root could read it. If so, just giving others the read permission would suffice.

Most probably you haven't installed X11 development files (libx11-dev in debian-based systems).

Sorry that I can't upload deb or rpm packages here! My reason is the active development of Kvantum. However, compilation is really easy when you have Qt4 and X11 headers.

That error message shows that you don't have libxext-dev, which is a dependency of xorg-dev. So, it seems I should add the xorg-dev dependecy to the installation instructions too. Thanks!

Good! I'll add that info to the INSTALL file. I hope you'll enjoy Kvantum with its default theme, KvGray or Dynamo.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
