Description:

This is ReinhardtSplash for KSplash/ML

Installation is done as any normal program distributed as source:

# ./configure --prefix=(your kde dir)
# make
# su -c "make install"

It has come to my attention that you might have to include --with-qt-dir=(your qt dir) in the configure command to get autoconf to find your copy of QT 3.2, if you have more than one install (mainly for KDE 3.2 beta
users).

Then you will (as of yet) have to manually make a file called ksplashrc in your ~/.kde/share/config/ folder containing the following:

[ksplash]
Theme=Reinhardt

On the name:
Ad Reinhardt, 1913-1967
Reinhardt was an American minimalist painter, who became known for his extreme style, which also became more and more reductive from the mid 1950s, towards his death in 1967. After 1955 he worked almost exclusively in near-black. This said, there is in fact colour in the paintings, for example his "Abstract Painting no. 5", 1962, which can be found at the Tate Modern ( www.tate.co.uk ), is, though
seemingly black-blue, in fact squared with blue and red.

Enjoy!

It seems that the splash screen does not work for KDE 3.2 Final. All I get when using the splash is the background image. No text indicating the progress.

Can someone confirm this?

I run 3.2 final myself and don't have the problem. What you may be experiencing, however, is a lack of the font used. The font is called Luxi Sans, and is free. (I'm not sure where you would get it if you don't have it, though)

I have the same problem with KDE 3.2.3 with both the preview and the actuall login. I do have the proper font Luxi Sans installed

Hi Leinir,

I found out, that the problem only exists with the preview in the setup dialog. When activating it nevertheless, it works perfectly.

Anyway, thank you for your reply! :-)

I always get this error when running ./configure
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

Even when I add the --with-qt-dir option.
I have KDE 3.1

Ive been using kde-cvs for a while, adn i'm glad to finally start seeing splash themes using the new ml-splash engine (or whatever it's called). Thanks and keep up the great work, looks good.
