Backgrounds and reflective Icons for Kooldock
+ Kore-Theme for AWN
+ Misticyan-Theme for AWN
+ Blacklight-Theme for AWN
+ Vortiz-Themes for AWN and Kooldock


You can find the latest Kooldock under:
(http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/kooldock?content=50910)

RPM-Files of Kooldock 0.4.7 for SuSE are available at Packman:
(http://packman.links2linux.de)

I made some reflective Icons out of Everaldo's great "Crystal Project"
(http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Crystal+Project?content=60475), Saki's wonderful "nuoveXT"
and BGthekafu 's "black-white 2 Gloss" for Download.

More reflective Icons for the Leopard-Background You find at:
(http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Leopard+for+KXDocker?content=64097)


NEW !!!

Vortiz - Themes for AWN and Kooldock

Blacklight for AVANT-Window-Navigator and Kooldock

Misticyan (Minimalistic Cyan) for Avant-Window-Navigator
(Set "Icon Effects" to "3D Turn" for best result !! )

Kore for Avant-Window-Navigator

For Users having problems with Compiz-Fusion and Kooldock, I've added the Kore-Theme for AWN


Hint for Kooldock:

There are two ways to replace the Kmenu-Icon with an reflective Icon!
Ugly Way:
Replace the Kmenu.png in the KDE Icon-folder with Your choice.
Don't forget to save the original icon!

Better Way:
Disable "Show K Menu" in the Kooldock_0.4.7-configuration.
Add a new application and call her Kmenu. Choose an icon.
As command give in:

dcop kicker kicker popupKMenu 100,200

In advanced options disable "Enable launch feedback"
(100,200 are the coordinates to appear on the screen, you can change them.)
Move the icon to the left position. Done!


My Kooldock-Settings:

-General
Autohide On
Enable Taskbar Off
Show K Menu Off
Use KBFX Off
Don't scroll .. On
Navigation Menu On

- Icon Text

To install the backgrounds "extract" the downloaded Tar.gz -File
into the background-directory of Kooldock.
( /usr/share/apps/kooldock/backgrounds/ or /opt/kde3/share/apps/kooldock/backgrounds/ )
In Kooldock-Settings choose as background the new background.
To install a new icon in Kooldock, Just edit an application (Right-Click on the Icon)
Click on the Icon-Symbol and You find a dialogue to choose another icon. Choose
one out of the extracted Icon's directory.

Have much fun, ottlux

Hi Mix,

Refl. Icons are primarly made for Kooldock.
To use them, you must extract them
and change manualy the icons on your
dock or of your system.

I have found a Deb-Package of
Kooldock 0.4.7 at:

http://allynelectronics.com/debs/kooldock-0.4.7-1X4_i386.deb

Try it out, when it's o.k. and you want to
start kooldock automaticly on startup, then set a link to kooldock in KDE-Autostart.

Used these icons and the gimp to invert the reflections so I can put the bar at the top of the screen and it looks sweet. Still got a few bugs i.e. when a window is opened and the kooldock is on screen the background is not refreshed but I'm sure stuff like that will be sorted in time.

1. extract the folder with icons (reflective icons 1.1.a) to a newly created folder (ex. my_kooldock_icons)
2. after the extracting there will be 4 folders containing icons.
3. put your mouse cursor on the kooldock icon you want to change and right click on it
4. select edit item
5. the window pops up
6. go to the upper left corner and click on the icon image (still the old one, the one you want to change)
7. icon source window opens
8. now select other icons click browse and search for your folder containing the extracted icons (the my_kooldock_icons folder with 4 sub-folders)
9. select the desired icon from any of those 4 sub-folders and click ok
10. if the changes you made do not take the immediate effect restart the cooldock (reload configuration button).

hope this helps,

regards bandito

The only thing that comes to my mind, is to try to change the whole icon theme with crystal icon theme. You can dowwnload it from [url=http://www.everaldo.com/crystal/crystal_project.tar.gz]here[/url] I think reflective icons are based on crystal icon theme.
After the download, just install the theme using kcontrol (kde control center). Click on "look and feel" and "icons". Click on "install new theme". Save changes and exit.
That should automaticaly replace all the icons with the new theme, kooldock icons included.

I just installed the kooldock .deb package on my Debian / Lenny. Invoking Kooldock from console results in the following lines:

~$ X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
Major opcode: 20
Minor opcode: 0
Resource id: 0x36ae140

while I was writing these comment the error repeated as:

X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
Major opcode: 20
Minor opcode: 0
Resource id: 0x1b662b5

Can anyone give me some hints on that? I'm using kde 3.5.7.

Hi,

detected strange behavior in my case... Without any additional window on my desktop, the icons appear shaded with a nasty white-color layer. After opening a window (terminal, firefox, etc.) the icons look as they should (wonderful). Any ideas ?
I am running fc8 with kde 3.5.8-7 and nvidia G0 6400.

Excellent job in any case, keep going !!!

Cheers, Sergio

Hi Sergio,

Do You use Kooldock or AWN ?
If it's AWN, first install the actual version ( AWN 0.2.1 ).
AWN is sometimes not reacting correctly on changing themes ! Then You need to restart
AWN and change special setting manually.

Thank You for comment, ottlux

Hi ottlux,

I am using kooldock:

sergio:~$kooldock --version
Qt: 3.3.8
KDE: 3.5.8-7.fc8 Fedora
KoolDock: 0.4.6

No idea what can happen... Please take a look to a snapshot :
http://ific.uv.es/~segonzal/kooldock/snap.jpg

As I said, in the presence of any kind of additional window, the icons look ok.

I may try with awn, but would like to solve this issue with kooldock.
Any suggestion is apreciated !!

Hi Sergio,
The Icons look really strange on Your desktop.
My first advice is to update Your kooldock.
Actual version is 0.4.7 , it's a very
stable version. Your Problem maybe solved
with it.

Thx, ottlux
