The concept of this style is harmony of sharpness and softness.
And this style was created based on keramik.
(Please do not ask me about the origin of this style name.)

The kwin client is not contained in this style.
You will be able to get it at the following URL.

To Install:

./configure --prefix="`kde-config --prefix`"
make install

(Please restart KDE after installation)


Ver 1.2.1
*"Surround the taskbar buttons with dark borders" option was added to "Extra Options" group.
(See 3rd screenshot)
*"Disable KMenu Titles" option was added to "Features to disable" group.

Ver 1.2
*The version of Keramik used as a basis was changed to what is contained in KDE-3.2.2.
*"Remove 'subtract-line' area from 'add-line' button of scrollbar" option was added to "Extra Options".
*The custom color option for the statusbar borders was added to "Border Colors" group in "Custom Colors" category.

Ver 1.1.8a(maintenance release)
*Fixed styleconf/activeheartconf.cpp file against the compile error relating to "getenv" function.

Ver 1.1.8
*Scheme manager can read the global scheme files now.
The global scheme file means the scheme files stored in "$KDEDIR/share/apps/kdisplay/styleconfs" directory.
(This feature is mainly based on Piotr Szymanki's work. And I improved it.)
*The custom color option for the menu separators was added to "Menu Colors" group.
*"Border's thickness of menubar and toolbar follows contrast" option was added to "Extra Options"

Ver 1.1.7
*"Reduce pushbutton size" option was added to "Extra Options".

Ver 1.1.6
*Changed the light weight combobox's pulldown buttons thinly.
*"Highlight the active taskbar button with the active tabline color" option was added to "Extra options".

BTW: I do not know a way for adding the "Apply" button to config dialog.

I love its look and customizability. I haven't explored nearly half what it's capable of doing, but I already love this style. Keep up the great work!

 Won't compile.

I've tried two variations of "./configure" which work, but make doesn't fly at all. It's error city.

Has anyone complied this for KDE 3.5?

I guess I'm just not meant to have this theme anymore...

./configure --prefix="`kde-config --prefix`"


Good - your configure finished. Start make now

Haha, I found it! :happy:

I was having the same output:

grep: /lib/libacl.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /lib/libacl.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/lib/libacl.la' is not a valid libtool archive

then I googled for this libacl.la and soon discovered I didn't have the libacl1-dev package... i installed it, and the output changed to:

grep: /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
/bin/sed: can't read /lib/libattr.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/lib/libattr.la' is not a valid libtool archive

Then my guess was that I didn't have libattr1-dev... BINGO! I installed it, and then make spit out a ton of warnings, but, anyway, I'm using activeheart right now. YAY!

I'm using Kubuntu 5.10 "breezy badger". I hope this can help you.

Hey, what's that font?

Awesome work by the way, I love to see something beautiful and original among so many dumbass aqua, longhorn, etc. ripoffs!

your style made me to try kde once again(i'm jumping between GNOME,XFCE,KDE quite often; although KDE has it's chance kinda rare ^^). today it's like 4/5 day on kde, konqueror got mozilla's bookmarks and i enjoy it as my web browser. anyway, probably i will try GNOME/XFCE again, maybe in a short time.

ok, just wanted to tell that it was your style that made me try kde again. thanks for your work.

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.
