zink suite by Scnd101 zink suite by Scnd101
This is the finished zink theme from my screenshot a couple of days ago. I don't have a very large screen (1440x900) and usually have alot of apps running on top of each other (reference images if I'm drawing something in gimp, watching a movie while doing something else, etc.), so I wanted a theme that's very space efficient and uses non-distracting colors.

Suite includes: Qtcurve config, aurorae window borders, colorscheme and amarok style :)

To install:

import zink.qtcurve in the qtcurve configuration window

import Zink.colors in the colorschemes settings

install the aurorae theme zink.tar.gz through the aurorae settings, or get it through GHNS

move default-theme-clean.svg to /usr/share/kde4/apps/amarok/images/

Install ALLGREY uniq ed. through GHNS at the icon settings, go to advanced and set gamma on all icons to about 70%

done :D

it's in default-theme-clean.svg, though I can't really remember which object... I think it's called "track"

First, install qtcurve and aurorae if you haven't already. Go to system settings>appearance>select qtcurve and press import and select the .qtc file, then press colors on the left and import the color scheme, I an't give precise instructions for the window border since I'm on kde4.5 but it's pretty much just select aurorae and import the archive

hope that helps :)

It does a lot but because im uber new... i downloaded qtcurve from synaptic package manager, but how do i open/install it? Thanks a lot!
Owen69 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2010
also i ran sudo apt-get install qtcurve and got

"qtcurve is already the newest version."

Where is it!!?? This is my main difficulty in the XP to linux transition

you can select it in system settings > appearance, it's not a separate application
