Description:

Just a simple qss file to make docks look
like in the screenshot.... and ofc my
bespin config file to go with them.

I'm merely experimenting so if this stuff
eats your cat then too bad for you, use at own risk.


usage:

dolphin -stylesheet /path/to/dox.qss

example use:
(first extract content to home folder)

cd
mkdir ~/.qss
mv dox.qss ~/.qss
dolphin -stylesheet ~/.qss/dox.qss

Example use2, aka "install":

go to System Settings -> Default Applications -> File Manager -> Other -> Edit "Dolphin" and append "-stylesheet ~/.qss/dox.qss" to the command field under the application tab, dolphin should be launched with the stylesheet by krunner and menu.

I don't know if it's due to the latest bespin, but the frame of "Folders" view seems to be on the wrong side of the scrollers.

Thanks a lot for reporting!

Same thing happened to me when I upgraded
to kde 4.5 beta2?

Did you do this?

However, there is afaik no way of fixing
this :) that's when I started my finder
project: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Haxsder?content=126210

As you can see the there is no borders
there :)

Send me pm if you are willing to test it.

Well, it's not perfect, but if you go to System Settings -> Default Applications -> File Manager -> Other -> Edit "Dolphin" and append "-stylesheet ~/.qss/dox.qss" to the command field under the application tab, dolphin should be launched with the stylesheet by anything other than a launcher ( which would have to have the stylesheet appended manually ), it would work with krunner, plasmoids, and such, right?

*is a newb* xD

Nice!

Didn't think of that, I havent tried it
yet but I think krunner calls
/usr/bin/dolphin directly yesno?

if not, then this would indeed be a good
solution!

Looks to me like it's running fine, when I use a folder view plasmoid or krunner it loads with the style

*Celebrates* it's just the stuff in kmenuedit that I had to append the stylesheet line to ( So far )

:D

Your modding stuff is the best out there. I'll take my hat off for that. I also encouraging you to continue on your icon theme, it's brilliant!

Question; How did you remove the big dots between 'Places', 'Folders' and the 'Window'? They are quite annoying and fill up spaces.

through qss.
however i just added a secret option (r. 1112)
add "DrawSplitters=false" to ~/.config/Bespin/Style.conf [Style]

they're required to hint that this layout can be altered w/o hovering the splitter (getting a cursor update)

Sry, can't help you here, it's not publicly
released and the author asked me to

Sad. However, could we at least know if/when the panel will be avaiable (approximately)? If you could ask the author it would be nice.

However i downloaded your .qss, but it has absolutely no effect on my Dolphin. It only eliminates "File", "Modify" and so on? It doesn't seem to do so on my system (Arch, 4.4)

the screenshot? if yes, then please post
output of

dolphin -stylesheet /path/to/dox.qss

Well the docks are what I'm tryin to theme
here, the ones that has the titles
"Places", "Folders" and so on :)

It doesn't seem to complain anything about
not finding the file or whatev... so
please a screenshot so I can see it has
indeed not loaded the stylesheet :)

....and you are using the bespin style right?

try this:

killall dolphin
dolphin -stylesheet ~/.qss/dox.qss

if you have dolhin running then it just
starts another instance with the same
settings.... sry should have mentioned this.

Anyways, the docks will not fit at all
with that color scheme so maybe not use it
at all then.
