WiNIX - KDE on windows by rvc-2011 WiNIX - KDE on windows by rvc-2011
My exploration into windows 7 with KDE...
As KDE is still in its infancy, i have not gone for plasma-desktop and am using KDE as an app over windows shell.
the startmenu and basic KDE apps are installed and seem to be running fairly well ...
Just felt i ll share a shot here... Thanks for viewing...

Wallpaper (KDE, A Matter of Taste by Liquidsky) is taken from here => [link]

Other Details: Rainmeter (iBar-2 skin), KDE Kickoff (start menu style of windows), KDE panel and Dolphin. VS used is chameleon 2 and Token Dark icon theme. File manager on display is Windows Explorer (i am yet to set transparency for the dolphin file manager of KDE)

Thank you for viewing...
Cheers

its easy champ...
the only difference is that i am using rainmeter skin for the top bar display. as we do not have rainmeter for linux, i think you can install rainmeter using wine. [ i did that for my pcbsd and i like the setup]
hope you achieve your goal and post a much better and elegant post for all of us ! :)

thank you for the compliments champ,, :) hehehe... you can install it as a windows installer and run as an app on the windows shell... i havent replaced plasma desktop (review says its still buggy) but nevertheless, i have 2 panels (windows taskbar and kde so running an app is not a prob !) just kept windows taskbar on auto hide..

Cool! But very dark, I've used Kubuntu and it's certainly not that dark. I assume you're just done it like that 'cos you like it dark.

i think you ve mistaken champ... the operating system is Windows 7 and i am running kde desktop on it as an app... so the theme / style you see is a windows visual style....
thank you for your compliments :)

No I understod that it's just that actual kde is brighter than that. BTW I recommend you use a different visual style on Windows 7 so that the buttons will look more like kde in apps like Windows Explorer and other Windows default apps. (you have to install a theme patcher if you want to use custom themes e.g. UXTheme Patcher)

if i understand by what you meant, that must be the desktop theme for kde which is limited for the windows edition ! i was looking for qt curve style but motif is default and i have cde as option.. for grays and monochromes, this came nearest ! thanks for your suggestions champ :)
