Yes, it's possible.

The theme consist (currently) of a .theme file (kuotes.theme) and a bash script (

The kuotes.theme every hour call script (first "text" command), that recover a quote (basing on the options in config.txt file), and put them in the kuotes.txt file. Then the kuotes.txt is parser by the last two "text" command in kuote.theme file, and the author and quote text are extracted.

If you replace the script (or add another function to it) with yuor own script that fill the kuotes.txt file with a compatible text, you would have to obtain what that you want (I hope).

For example it's possible to built a function in the that extract a random quote from a text file that contain a list of quotes separated by special char. Perhaps I can add this feature in the next release... - Apr 02 2006

I'm trying, but it isn't simple. I hope it isn't also impossible to do.

Major difficult is to catch the correct page for alphabetical index ( for various languages (english page is Quick_index, italian page is Indice_articoli, french page is ???), without have to code this pages in the script.
Another problem is to treat pages like this - Mar 02 2006

Another way to do something like this, is to set an area of the theme (an icon?) where if you click, it start the mail client, while if you click in any other point it check new mail (or it check new mail if you click on icon, and start mail client on other points). - Jan 28 2006

I've modified the widgetClicked code.

def widgetClicked(widget, x, y, button):
if ( button == 1 or button == 2):
click_check = 0
launch = ''
configuration = open(str(karamba.readConfigEntry(widget,"configuration_file")) )
line = configuration.readline()
while line:
if r'^\s*click_check\s*(1|true|on)',line):
click_check = 1
match = r'^\s*click_launch\s*(.*)',line)
if match:
launch = match.groups()[-1]
line = configuration.readline()
if (not click_check and launch and button == 1) or (click_check and launch and button == 2):
program = os.popen( launch + '&')
if (click_check and button == 1) or (not click_check and launch and button == 2):
widgetUpdated( widget)

(Damn! The site remove all the spaces in the code. If you need, I send it by email.)

Whit this modifies, if in the config file, the click_launch and the click_check are enabled, and you click button 1 (left button) the script start to check new mails, or if you click button 2 (middle button) start your mail client.
If only one of click_check or click_launch is enable, the script run in usual way. - Jan 28 2006

I've added this line in at line 221

system('play -v 0.1 /opt/kde3/share/sounds/KDE_Notify.wav');

to play a notify when I receive a new mail.

It's an idea for the future versions of this theme. - Jan 28 2006

Good project, but at this time, I haven't still been able to try it.

I've updated my ruby to 1.8.4, the qtruby to 1.0.11 and the rubygems to 0.8.11 (korudum is necessary? In case I've tried to compile but the make process fail with some errors).

I've KDE 3.5.0, and a SuSE 9.3.
When I try to start clickspotter, I obtain this output:
/usr//lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/Qt/qtruby.rb:679:in `initialize': unresolved constructor call Qt::SizePolicy (ArgumentError)
from /usr//lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/Qt/qtruby.rb:679:in `try_initialize'

from /usr//lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/clickspotter.rb:36
from /usr/bin/clickspotter:3

and I don't understand what I would have do in order to resolve this problem.

Thanks. - Jan 24 2006

Whit a fresh config files (deleted old config files), I can, first time that I launch theme, config city, background, and some other option. All other times that I launch the theme I obtain some errors:
Call to initWidget failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/alex/Documents/Downloads/Software/KDE/superkaramba-themes/lwp-9.1.skz/", line 3428, in initWidget
NameError: global name 'moon_icon' is not defined

and this if I try to open the config menu

File "/home/alex/.superkaramba/lwp/", line 95
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I've set Torino on BBC service, Metric units, 24 hour format clock, and Plain White Raised (1) background.

Sorry if my english is just understandable, but I haved some problems with kde-look login, and this is the third time that I rewrote this comment (and kde-look site don't admit the use of back button of the browser, to recover old text). - Jan 21 2006

Telephony by mfnboer 44 comments

I really like this softphone.
And I've promoted twinkle to be my unique softphone.

If it's possible, I've to request two features, for the next version:
1 - a software volume control for the ring tone (or to inteface the ring tone as an event in the KDE system notifications) and two hardware control for the speaker and microphone devices;
2 - the possibility to have multiple profile active (registered) at same time (I've many numbers, because in Italy some phone companies applies different rates in function of the caller and the called geographic distance).

Good job, and have a lot of fun!

Great thanks. - Nov 19 2005

Look this karamba theme
it's a good job. See if you are intrested to implement the use of the mouse wheel to browse the applications, or the transparent background.

Another estethicism can be the parabolic icon enlargment (like kxdocker).

Thanks for this nice tool.
I hope to see it in the next KDE version. - Sep 27 2005
