Description:

TinyInfoBar theme for Karama/SuperKaramba

Parts of this theme (icons, ideas, and a few code snippets) came from other themes available on kde-look. Please check out their themes.

This theme is a small (20 pix tall) bar that goes on the top of the screen (can also go on the bottom). It includes a virtual desktop switcher, a pop3 mail checker, processor usage tracking, time/date, weather, xmms control, and a headline viewer.

Virtual Desktop Switcher:
Buttons to switch between the 1st 2 desktops. I only included 2 to save space because I only use 2 normally.

Pop3 Mail Checker:
Checks to see how many messages are in given pop3 mailbox(es). The number of messages is displayed. If 0, the email icon is grayed out. Is limited in that it is the total # of messages in the mailbox, not new ones. Click on to open your email client.

Processor Usage:
Shows the current % used and a line graph of the amount used recently. Click on to see KDE System Guard.

Date/Time:
Displays the date and time. Click on to modify the system date and time.

Weather:
Displays a very small summary of the weather for today and the next 2 days, gathered from accuweather.com. Click on to go to the summary page at accuweather.com.

XMMS:
A simple XMMS control - back, forward, play/pause with file and time info. Click on the buttons to control XMMS.

Headlines:
A newsticker of sorts. One line that changes every 3 seconds. Headlines are reloaded every hour from newsisfree.com. Set up to display slashdot, CNN, and The Onion headlines, can be changed. Click on to go to a local generated page that lists all the headlines with links to each to view the full article.

View the INSTALL file for information on how to run the configuration script and how to change things to suit your liking.

Hey, turbohappy, I like it too. It's small, clean, and efficient. I also like the font.

I think it is great just the way it is.
Keep up the good work :)

I like it a lot. Nice and small. Neat little font too. Which one is it?

The font on this one is called Porky's. I'm actually using a different font to match my new desktop look now. Thanks for the compliments :)

What would you guys change? I'm not too sure about the font I used now. I plan to add a "Current" weather box and get rid of the currently last entry in the weather.

I would also like to change the icons to appear better in 20x20 format. Shrinking from 32x32 makes them look less than ideal. Make some nice transparent ones.
