Description:

*********************
ANTICO DEVELOPMENT IS ENDED (I SWITCHED TO MAC OS X).
I'M AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE ANY CLARIFICATION TO ALL INTERESTED DEVELOPERS TO CONTINUE THE PROJECT.
*********************

Antico is a Qt4/X11 Desktop/Window Manager (i.e. KDE+KWin).
The goal is to create a Desktop/Window manager simple and fast. All parameters must be configured from few files, avoiding unnecessary complications, following the K.I.S.S. philosophy.
The whole project is based only on Qt4 libraries, without any other external dependencies (e.g. kdelibs ...).

**********
FEATURES
**********

The whole application is based on "antico.cfg" file.
Frame border dimension, color, pixmap, desk wallpaper are managed from "Manager" panel.
The style is selected from "Manager" and save in a xxx.stl file: if you want to share your personal style, save the directory and send it.
General style (Oxygen, Plastique ..), fonts family and size, window background etc. can be selected from "qtconfig".
See "git commits" on repository ...

***********
REPOSITORY
***********
http://github.com/antico/antico/tree/master

To run the window manager:

---------------------------------------------------
To uninstall, type on shell (as root):

************
DEVELOPMENT
************
To test the window manager, type on shell:

DISPLAY=:0
Xephyr :1 -ac -screen 1024x768 & DISPLAY=:1; $HOME/antico/antico

(where 1024x768 is your preferred screen size and $HOME if you have download Antico in user home)
---------------------------------------------------
To hide debug messages, uncomment in antico.pro
//DEFINES = QT_NO_DEBUG_OUTPUT
---------------------------------------------------

***********
STYLE
***********
Use "qtconfig" to select your preferred style (Oxygen, Plastique), fonts, effects, etc.

The next problem with qutim & qmmp. when I choose to hide them in the system tray in the panel remains the key applications and the desktop is blank form. I think not correctly processed by QWidget:: hide ()?

maybe is a good idea to request debianizing of this project - this will help this project being part of Debian and Ubuntu repositories, and helping more people having access of it.

for now, any tarball is welcome - i'm having huge difficulties on compiling it (as usual for me on everything else related to make/configure/etc...)
As soon as any binary package appearing online on any distro, please let me know! =)

Well, after seeing what KDE4 is, i were betting some lighter window manager based on QT4 will appear - and this project is a proof of it.

But, what i could see, i think it can be even simpler, just like what is LXDE based on Gnome.

Anyway, congratulations on helping a long live for QT4, and helping showing how bloated KDE4 is, and how/where it must be improved.

Look at the debug msg at startup ... I print a "Localization:" when Qt check the locale lang. of your X settings. Antico automatically load the relative xx.qm from /language dir... if the debug msg. is "ru_RU", the file must be "ru_RU.qm"

I know this, and now has made two file transfer. But localization ru_UA and ru_RU no different. Only the first two for Ukraine to Russia.

Is that possible to have a command (like, urxvt, for example) and its arguments on two different edit controls? It would make things a lot easier.

Besides that, very thanks, it is getting better and better each day.

Regards,
Andre
