Description:

This item is a part of Steam-Powered Linux KDE theme set.

The idea is to apply steampunk style to every themeable part of KDE-based distro. Any constructive feedback is highly appreciated. I will try to implement your propositions/fix bugs once I have spare time.

KSplash theme notes:
You may encounter weird grey dots during first time you run this theme. It happens when KSplash engine resizes PNG images with transparent pixels on the fly. After resized files are cached, these dots will disappear.

Wow, this is really cool!

If only... there were no Kubuntu lettering, I'm a Gentoo user. What about making a version for every major distribution? Quite some work, yes, but many more people might want to use it then.

Thanks! For animation I used unbiased renderer (LuxRender) that takes almost a day to render one frame in acceptable quality, while there are 30 of them. I suppose, if I add letters even for major distributions, it will take more time than I can spare. But! I suppose I may replace "Kubuntu" letters with neutral words like "Loading" and "Steam Powered" :) However, the center element of theme is in fact animated Kubuntu logo. If it is not a problem, I will try to find time to change words and re-render animation.
Also I want to create another OS-neutral steampunk theme, inspired by steampunk style itself (this one was inspired by gears in Kubuntu logo). This is just an idea for now, because I'm doing it in spare time and I don't have it much now. I will try to estimate how people like such style judging on rating for this theme.

This looks awesome. I had no idea KSplash was capable of anything like this. It makes me wonder why the hell there aren't more themes of this caliber. Keep it up!

In fact KSplash abilities are quite simple. It just plays animation frames based on parts of PNG file. In addition to rendering animation, I had to write scripts that created such PNG files for each animated element. In fact, I wasn't even sure, that KSplash will be able to play such huge files fast enough to be useful. I reduced number of colors to 256 in animation files, so they occupy less space, while trying to keep their original look. Now you can see the result :)
It took a lot of my spare time, but I hope the result worth it :)
