Description:

The main bar looks like some kind of glas, that's where the name comes from ;-)
Active timers are used only for Time/Date and Proc/Mem/Swap bars to keep processor usage low.

The theme is mostly configured in the .theme file as it's adopted from my very first
karamba theme. Python is used only for the taskbar and pager stuff. So it should work "out of the box".
But beware: this is my first try in python ;-)

Non-SuperKaramba users can use this too by uncommenting the pager stuff in the .theme file but the taskbar
won't work and the pager will be update only if you click it (or use F5).

The bar for mldonkey downloads is a great idea

the theme just crashes when its loaded, removing the .pyc and .py files it works but obviouslys with no traskbar or pager, so the problem lies in there, this is the first themeed taskbar ive seen i really wanted it cause i want a bar with a taskbar but yeah just crashes =/ hopefully you will fix it, btw do u know any other karamba themes that have a taskbar on there bar? thanks

this is really nice. it works well, has all the stuff i need and doesnt bog down my system like some of the others. Now all i use the kicker for is the system tray, and its set to auto hide so I hardly see it anymore. :-D.

#this is called everytime your widget is updated
#the update inverval is specified in the .theme file

So it says in your script, but where in the theme file do i specify it ?? The update is to damn slow for my taste. I really like the way it looks, only thing i needs is the same as all karamba/superkarambas out there: functionalety, but im sure as the s-karamba API matures it will come.

Suggestions:

make it possible to remove that pager section...i think theres a lot of us out there that only use 1 desktop. Also instead of only running kmix if its already active, then just make it a button that launches kmix.

Also, the spot where CPU load etc. gets measured looks like a great spot for a future system tray.

Yet another one, the taskbar writing doesent look to...test with other fonts.

Other then that, its a killer bar!!

The comments you mentioned came with the example.py file, but no hint where to setup the update timer. After trying a little bit I found that if you add an INTERVAL command to the KARAMBA statement in the .theme file you can set how often the theme will be refreshed.
BUT: using 500 (twice a minute) caused a cpu usage around 25%, so be careful what you're using there.

The pager is fix in the bar layout, no chance to remove it without breaking the hole bar, that's how it looks to me. And, why not providing a pager ?
I guess a couple of people will use it.

Kmix can be started the common way, using the kmenu, no need to change this I guess ;-)

And yes, you're right saying the taskbar looks not that good as it should do. I'm still working on it.

Using the cpu/mem field as a systray is an interesting point. Already have some ideas, we'll see ;-)
