can't install oxygen-transparent (kde 4.8.1)

Postby Graes » Fri Mar 09, 2012 12:32 pm

so it's been 2 days since i'm trying to install oxygen-transparent but can't find a way out.

followed many guides but i keep getting the same error.

does anyone know if there's a problem with kde 4.8 or 4.8.1 or i'm just too noob? :?

yeah that is the first guide i tried...

i get the same error you can see in comments

Code: Select all

make[2]: *** [decoration/CMakeFiles/kwin3_oxygen_transparent.dir/oxygenbutton.o] Error 1
 make[1]: *** [decoration/CMakeFiles/kwin3_oxygen_transparent.dir/all] Error 2
 make: *** [all] Error 2
 system make>&1 failed: 512


etc etc

tried the solution they provide in comments (add "-branch stable") but got the same result.

i wonder if it is not compatible with 4.8.1 yet otherwise i dunno...

I too would like to know the answer to this. I just installed Mint 12 KDE and am attempting to install this. I'm getting the same exact error as the OP.

Ok, I did a little more searching and was able to figure this out. I am posting the command to resolve this since this thread is the first link to show in google when searching this error.

If you have already run the script the run

Code: Select all

./oxygen-setup.pl --clean


This will complete rather quickly, then run the next command as follows,

Code: Select all

oxygen-setup.pl --branch stable


This is taken from http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=127752

Thanks all!

Thanks atek !!! :)
I had the same problem and you helped me a lot. I have Linux Mint 12 KDE with KDE platform version upgraded from 4.7.4 to 4.8.2 it works great. :)

And just in case that there's some bigger newbie than me out there trying to install this...

After you clean the things made with the wrong script, with this command

Code: Select all

./oxygen-setup.pl --clean

Then run this

Code: Select all

./oxygen-setup.pl --branch stable

I did not even tried it without "./" part and I guess this command would not work that way. Saying this makes me not to feel a complete newbie :lol:
Then in the end of this setup it said to run cd build; make install as root or with sudo but I have run this one by one

Code: Select all

cd build
sudo make
sudo make install

And now I have oxygen transparent widget style finally.
