Projects / LipstikLF


LipstikLF is intended to be a Swing counterpart for the Lipstik KDE theme engine. It was written to be fast, clean, and as similar to original Lipstik look as possible. It should run both on Java 1.4 and 1.5.

            Thanks for creating the 'Lipstik' Look & Feel, which works quite well in isolation. However, switching away from it can cause some problems.

            My application allows users to change its L&F at runtime. When I switch from 'Lipstik' to Java's 'Metal', the latter looks brown instead of grey.

            I'm already calling "SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(this)". Is there anything I'm missing? If this is a bug in 'Lipstik', how quickly can you fix it?
