Is it possible to get the Jenor chapter style available with the memoir documentclass in the scrreprt documentclass (Koma-script)?

Here is a link to Jenor style.

Yes, it is possible; here's one possible solution (some vertical skips might require fine tuning):







    \@tempa{\ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne%
{\parbox[b]{\linewidth}{\chaptitlefont #1}}
& \raisebox{-15pt}{\chapnumfont\thechapter}%
    \raggedsection \interlinepenalty \@M 
{\parbox[b]{\linewidth}{\chaptitlefont #1}%
\vphantom{\raisebox{-15pt}{\chapnumfont 1}}}


\chapter{A test numbered chapter with a really long title}
\chapter*{A test unnumbered chapter with a really long title}

It doesn't seems to work here : no line separator and text starts on the same line as the title. Here is my preamble codeviewer.org/view/code:2940 – s__C Aug 28 '12 at 16:55
@s__C Of course it's not working; you added the lines \renewcommand*{\chapterheadstartvskip}{\vspace*{-40pt}} \renewcommand*{\chapterheadendvskip}{\vspace{1cm}} so you suppressed the horizontal line. If you want to change the spacing, do so changing the values for \vskip inside the refefinitions for \chapterheadstartvskip and \chapterheadendvskip that are inside my code. By the way, some of your packages are causing conflicts; you need to load amsmath before kmath. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 28 '12 at 17:09
Ok now it's perfect. Thanks for your help Gonzalo. – s__C Aug 28 '12 at 19:42
@s__C You're welcome! I'm glad I could help. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 28 '12 at 19:48
