Hey I love this wallpaper. Great work with the blur and sutle colors. However, I would really like to put in on my laptop is wide screen. Would it be possible to make this wallpaper in 1280x800?

Thanks,
Ike

OK, I've modified the image to fit your laptop's screen resolution, though I had to cut the image a little bit...

Most will probably know that these wallpapers from kde-look are also available via
right click on desktop
configure desktop
wallpaper
get new wallpapers

I want to mention three things about that:

when downloading this wallpapers you get a bzip2 compressed archive placed into
~/.kde/share/wallpapers/
so it is not possible to use these wallpapers without uncompressing the archive manually (too much for most users, they will just skip this and continue with the next wallpaper)

After uncompressing the file there are only two new image files extracted (suseA2.jpg and suseA.jpg). The third one (the blue one) is missing.

The extracted file is marked as executable (more exact 755). Why? Why not just 644? This is a picture, not an executable.

1) There are only 2 of the pictures, because there is a file size limitation of 750KB, when you're uploding any file for download.. The other (blue) versions are added through external links.. I hope there is nothing hard to click on the link and save the blue images from there..

2) the access rights of both files where updated to 644 for your satisfaction

3) you can't be serious with this sentence:

"so it is not possible to use these wallpapers without uncompressing the archive manually (too much for most users, they will just skip this and continue with the next wallpaper) "

I think, more easier it can't even be:
right click on the file->extract here

1) Which link? I don't see any: http://img353.imageshack.us/img353/3377/wallpapersdialog0hx.png

2) Thank you.

3) I am serious with that sentence. I sat next to a computer scientist. He was looking for a new desktop wallpaper and was browsing through the dialogs. When he saw the thumbnail of this image he clicked install and continued browsing through the other wallpapers. After downloading about 10 Wallpapers he closed the dialog and chose as background image "Going SuSE--0". What happened? No thumbnail, no wallpaper. Nothing. Well, he just wanted to use KDE and not to look for the problem, so he ignored that one and selected a different wallpaper. Do you really expect everybody to open konqueror (if necessary make hidden files visible), browse to .kde/share/wallpapers, look for the archive and extract it there?

Please don't get me wrong. I really like your wallpapers and I don't want to argue. I saw the mentioned (minor) problems and wanted to tell you about.

1) there are five download links. If you look closer, only first one is compressed file for download. The others are links to external web sites. Unfortunately, this is the only way, how to upload several files to this server..

3) the wallpaper was downloaded nearly 9000 times, and i'm sure there where a lot of people, who had much less computer experiences than the computer scientist, you mentioned. Btw: i'm not sure if he really deserves his money, if this is such a problem for him..:)

1) So this is a general problem of kde-look?

3) Well, I have no doubt, that many people can solve the problem and I am sure he could solve the problem easily, too.
But he doesn't, because he does not want to waste his time browsing through hidden directories in his home folder.
This is just a wallpaper.

1) yes, it is

3) This is the reason, why he should download wallpaper from the web browser - you can save the file where you want..
It's just a 2 or 3 mouseclicks more...

It wasn't an incomplete element. It's because the overlaying pattern (the chameleon skin) is gray in this specific area.. Though, I've 'repaired' both blue and green images to your satisfaction. Enjoy...


PS: It's been a while since I did my last wallpaper. Maybe it's time for another nice lady wallpaper..:)
