I am looking for a KDE look and feel (or make one myself) because I am finding myself using too much statements UIManaget statements like:

UIManager.put("Button.background", SystemColor.control);
UIManager.put("ToggleButton.background", SystemColor.control);
...

String aIconBasePath = "/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/";

UIManager.put("OptionPane.errorIcon", getImageIcon(aIconBasePath + "32x32/actions/messagebox_critical.png"));
UIManager.put("OptionPane.warningIcon", getImageIcon(aIconBasePath + "32x32/actions/messagebox_warning.png"));
...

UIManager.put("FileChooser.newFolderIcon", getImageIcon(aIconBasePath + "22x22/actions/folder_new.png"));
...

This is because UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName()); on Linux is still having this Metal look and feel.

Has anyways already a working KDE look and feel? Or interested in making one?

There is a nice directory of java look-and-feels here: http://www.javootoo.com/

You may be able to use the 'Skin' look and feel to emulate KDE.

Good luck!
