KDE I tend to believe that the best interfaces have already been made. Behaviourally, CDE is the best and most consistent interface ever made. It looked like ass, but it always did exactly as you told it to, and it never did anything unexpected. When it comes to looks, however, the gold standard comes from an entirely different corner - Apple's Platinum and QNX' PhotonUI. Between all the transparency, flat-because-it's-hip, and stitched leather violence of the past few years, one specific KDE theme stood alone in bringing the best of '90s UI design into the 21st century, and updating it to give everything else a run for its money. This is an ode to Christoph Feck's Skulpture.

Branch "five" is for Qt 5, but only builds using qmake right now. Use "master" for the Qt 4 version, which also supports shadows for KWin.

To specify the installation prefix, use "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/foo/bar" when configuring.

Yeah, of course it's for Qt5, I've even read that in the git but somehow it did not click. 10q both for the heads up. ;)
