Huh? ofc you may :) ...but will you get an answer? ;-)

The font is Helvetica World.

How is the coding going?

Fine I was indeed using drawRoundRect instead of drawRoundedRect :)
There's still a problem though, it's that the corners of the rectangle are not equal, which it seems is a known fact.
I tried using Antialiasing but it ends up bluring all the graphics which is clearly not what I want :(

Glad you have that solved then?
corners are not equal?
antialiasing is a sort of blurring yeah but should
not look blurred at all, scrot?

Look at my scrots, I paint a really really hardly
noticeable outline on the top of my windows, does
this look something what you are after?
Here I use antialiasing.

Yeah that's totally what I'm looking for. Are you drawing the outlines using path or roundedRect ? I'm using roundedRect right now, but I'm struggling on where to put the outline code, not to have it repainted :(

As I only want some highlight kinda thing at the
top (and not around the whole window, which would
break anyways if you dont use 4px borderwidth...)
I use a path, and a gradiented pen :)

the void Client::repaint() should suffice, that is
where Thomas paints it also (when more then 4px border-
width).

I managed to paint the double outline right. I created a rounded rect to fill in with the gradient brush. The original rectangle was painting over my outlines. But corners remains uneven, which seems to be a reccurent issue : QPainter::drawRoundedRect() drawing uneven corners and Corners of a rounded rectangle are not equally round :(

I'm really interested to know how you painted the gradient on the status/bottom bar.

Corners uneven? Scrot pls. I've never had this problem
with antialiasing on, plus, without antialiasing you
will get ugly pixelated corners. read: USE ANTIALIASING.

To paint on statusbar:
Just install an eventfilter on QStatusBar and in
the paintevent paint whatever you feel like :)

There might be some better way to do this however.
For example, bespin skips these:
registerPE(skip, PE_PanelStatusBar);
registerPE(skip, PE_FrameStatusBarItem);
you might want to try and implement these and see
if you get what you want? I'm not sure however, I
have not read the proper documentation on these,
however, you *might* be able to do it properly
using these. Using eventfilters is really
expensive (especially if you paint some fancy
gradients or stuff like that in the paintevent).

I once had so heavy painting on the docks I
could hardly resize them anymore ;-) So use
with care.

lol, why are you so upset that you can't make minimal shots and then hate everyone for it? There are plenty of lessor customizers that like your unrefined shots. But extreme minimalists like Izobalax, lynucs, miniman, akka and so forth, I'm sure will give you pointers. Just stick with what you know, no harm intended. :)

No harm taken :) I don't like your shots and you
don't like mine [period]. Anything deeper beyond
that is between your ears :)

Heeeeeey!?!?! your that pixelfuckers dude that
knows the secret rules of customizing right? :D
Didn't think I'd hear from you again. Glad
I could piss you off a little again tho ;-)

face meeting palm. Why in the world do you always get so defensive and upset any time someone gives you advise? It's as if you don't like what you hear you can't take it. I will indulge this no longer and if you ever want to get better at customizing, pixelfuckers is there as I see you remember.

P.S. If you want to piss me off, although very difficult, sign up at pf and submit a shot. That might make me a bit perturbed. :)

Okey, first of all, what you call customizing, I
call shit. Second, worst vice there is, is advice.
Third, I can take anything, you just got to be ready
to take my response.

And still, the answer is no, I don't want to get better
at something I do not do, and that is customize. I
do not customize now and never will. :) Have a nice day.

You spat in the face of many of your own followers that are minimalists, wow. Well, I'm sorry to see you will no longer be posting shots of your entry level customized(altered appearance)screens. Its weird because you talk on the other side with me on another of my ghost accounts, even on this very shot comment under that name, hehe. Didn't mean to get you so worried and upset. Good day. :)

I'm upset now also? This just gets better :)

-No, I'm hostile, to pretty much everything that isn't
me, it's in my Finnish nature.

So, I should be worried now, there are somekinda
enlightened people stalking me on deviantart :S

So, basically, u seem to think there are some
specific rules one should follow when changing
a style from the "style center" or whatever.
This just is not the case, there is nothing to
learn, nothing to follow, no advice, nothing.
Just a bunch of styles. The sooner you get that
thru your obviously thick skull the sooner this
waste of time conversation can be over.

You artsy-fartsy pretentious people should
gtfo of my interwebs.

I spat in the face? Hardly. "Fuck them if they
can't take joke".

you're confused that you're upset??? wtf??? Your response conveys even further the latter. Anyway, the world works by rules from the monumental to the mundane and this does not escape it, so if can't understand something so simple, I'll no longer try to open your eyes to learn to get better. This has seriously turned for the worse and I'll leave it alone so you don't consider bringing harm to yourself, besides who wants to see artsy stuff on an art site. :/ :(

You actually think I'm upset? You don't know finnish
people at all then :) Let's take this r e a l l y
slow then: b e a u t y i s i n t h e e y e s
o f t h e b e h o l d e r
. And that is
the only rule there is, anything, is just ur own
imagination. I should think that modern art is proof
enough of that. FFS "sometimes a cigar is just a
cigar"
. Deal with it, there is nothing deeper
here. Nothing to learn, except you might want to
actually do something "custom" before telling me
what custom is motherfucker.

Haha :D yeah well, the whole screenshot was sorta
like an accident, as I was just fiddling around
with some settings. I got this look, added a
minimal wall and then I just "unstyled" the
bottompanel (well, its minimalism, no styling,
just a simple color will do :D) , and then
I had a typical pretentious minimal screenshot.
I just had to troll a little ;-)

I am very homophobic, gay people should all be sent to
an island faaar faar away, then we can visit there say
100 years from and see how many gay people there are.
That's how natural it is to be gay. There should be a law
against it. Even talking about gay people makes my blood
boil.
