XPQ4 0.12.1-r1

This project provides Windows look and feel for the Q4OS Linux operating system.
XPQ4 is an open source desktop theme that implements the Windows look and feel for the Q4OS Linux operating system. This XPQ4 project will transform your KDE desktop into a veritable Windows 2000 lookalike desktop.

Getting started with XPQ4

In order to install XPQ4, you should use the Q4OS desktop. Download and save the self-extracting XPQ4 installer on your desktop, double click it from the Q4OS file manager and follow the setup instructions.

Change the system color scheme to "xpq4_wxp" via the control panel (keep in mind that it will take no effect for QT4 applications), and install the ttf-mscorefonts-installer package from the official Q4OS repository, if you want to use Times, Arial and other Windows fonts.

Availability and supported OSes

The project is available for download as pre-built binary packages that allow anyone to easily install the theme on their GNU/Linux distribution no matter the architecture used (32-bit and 64-bit hardware platforms are supported at this time).

It has been specifically designed for the Q4OS Linux distribution, but it should work with any other Linux kernel-based operating system that features that KDE Plasma graphical desktop environment.
