Description Kelly Miller 2007-05-03 04:06:17 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: QtCurve is a set of widget styles for KDE and Gtk2 based apps, based on Bluecurve.  It allows for similar styles to be applied to both KDE and Gtk2-based apps, acheiving decent-looking style unity.

This package doesn't install anything; instead, it simply requires both the KDE and Gtk2 sides of QtCurve.  Installing this package will install all of QtCurve (and all of it's dependencies).

imo, this is is kinda pointless, but who am I to judge? :)

Comment 2 Laurent Rineau 2008-02-05 11:46:13 UTC
:-) I was about to construct package for QtCurve-0.55, and submit them to 

Kelly, can you update to QtCurve-0.55 in bug #238816 and bug #238815, and also 
provide the KDE4 style? I am using this style in both Gtk2/KDE3/Qt4 apps, and 
my desktop now looks better.

In my opinion, the current meta-package should not exist. Anyway, should it 
exist, then the requirements should be:
  kde-style-qtcurve = %{version}, gtk-qtcurve-engine = %{version}

> imo, this is is kinda pointless, but who am I to judge? :)

Rex, you are the maintainer of gtk-qt-engine. I do not understand your point, 
here. In my opinion, using QtCurve for both KDE3, KDE4 and Gtk is a better 
option than gtk-qt-engine, because it offers a quite-uniform look for all the 
desktop, even for KDE3/KDE4. Until all KDE3 applications are ported to KDE4, I 
will prefere to use QtCurve instead of a mix of Oxygen (for KDE4) and any 
other style for Gtk2/KDE3/Qt3.

And, IMO, Oxygen is ugly.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-02-05 11:56:37 UTC
My "pointless" comment was about the existence of the metapackage (as you seem
to agree), and not anything against qtcurve itself.

Comment 4 Laurent Rineau 2008-02-05 13:49:44 UTC
Sorry Rex for the misunderstanding.

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-28 18:19:24 UTC
Closing as detailed in bug 238816.
