Window Decoration Generator (decgen)

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by maitre 77 comments

I guess it compiles the code for each new windeco? would it be possible to leave slots open so PowerUsers could write little callback functions that get added to the windeco?

This idea has a lot of potential... - Sep 12 2005
Window Decoration Generator (decgen)

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by maitre 77 comments

I'm not at home so I can't try it right now, but if I understand, is this a shell script and a windeco template that can be executed by a user to create new windecos with little/no programming? if so, that is a damn cool idea! how much of the windeco can be customized through the script? I've played around with making my own windecos a little... this would be a very popular tool, especially with a nice GUI on the front.
can't wait to try this out, and then see more... - Sep 11 2005

KDE 3.5 Themes by maitre 121 comments

There's a lot of improvements, and I like tiblit a lot now. Only problem this time is that the configuration dialogue is too big for my screen. I have my monitor resolution set to 1024x786, but I also have to kicker panels. This means that I am always sliding both panels out of the way to make changes.
This could be fixed if the configuration dialogue were resizable (it isn't at least on my setup). - Jun 28 2005

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by p0z3r 116 comments

It looks great, but those title bars are too damn thick. I mean, they're huge! oh well, maybe it's because I'm used to using Glow because of it's thin title bars. My suggestion is to make an option for the title bar to be about half its current height.

I really like your button icons, as well. - Feb 24 2005

...another observation.
With autocomplete drop-down textboxes (like the address text in Konqueror), the box is bordered with weird colours. Sometimes, Green, sometimes yellow. This is understandable, since green and yellow are in my colour scheme. sometimes I get turquoise. now, maybe green+yellow=turquoise, but WTF is it happening with the drop-down box border, and why is it so inconsistent? if it could just PICK a colour and stick with it, it would look a lot less strange. - Feb 16 2005

WOW! this is awesome. It looks great, and is highly customizable and has schemes. amazing!

ok, enough gushing, here's some suggestions/observations:
1) are you using Inactive Window Title bar colour as the default for scrollbars? because some widgets (such as scroll bars) look pretty bad with most of my colour schemes (which use black in the Active and Inactive Window Titles). Of course, I can tweek the colours and fix it, so this isn't toooo serious.
2) I just noticed now, scroll bar colours are not consistent. The scroll bar on this little text box I am typing in on the web form is greenish-grey (from my colour scheme) but Konqueror's scroll bar for the entire window is the dark grey that I set in the style's config. weird...
3)scrollbar highlighting when click/drag would be nice to have.
4)Menu lists are too big/long. some of my bookmarks menus take up more than half the screen. With my other style (phase) they take up much less room. Variable font size and spacing would be cool.
5)checkboxes and radioboxes just look like white circles. hard to see on this webpage, which is white and grey.

This is a great looking style with tons of potential. maybe it's something fresh and new to include into KDE 3.4?
keep up this awesome work! :) - Feb 15 2005
IslandLinux bootsplash theme (suse)

It's a nice image for this cold dark February. Any way to get a slackware package, or a version of it for a generic bootsplash?
Maybe it will work with a generic (non-Suse) bootsplash?

Icon Sub-Sets by dflax 4 comments

These are some great looking icons! The only problem is, they don't really map to any existing icons on my system, except for the one with 3 gears (maps to executable) and the one with the pen (maps to kwrite/generic word processor).
some more useful icons could be for back/forward arrows, home, reload, stop, etc... for konqueror, and maybe some icons for file systems (CD, folders, mounted drives, etc...) and mimetypes.
Great style and I hope to see a full icon set from this! - Jan 27 2005

would it be also possible to have this affect the windows below? so that when the titlebar is transparent, you can see the icons on the desktop, or the window below. now THAT would be damn cool! - Dec 19 2004

I am so sick of all the preachiness here. why is it that of all the forums I visit, this one seems to attract the most vocal and closed-minded religious folk?
listen people, there's more than one way to live (and none of them are "right" or "wrong", which are both very subjective terms) so stop trying to cram your own way down other people's throats. If you want to post wallpapers of bible quotes or naked people, then fine! do it already! just stop the proselytizing and preaching! if you DON'T like an image that someone has posted, DON'T LOOK AT IT! because other people actually might like those pics you don't like (either religious OR nudy).

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by GreatRedShark 8 comments

Here's how these themes get installed:
you must have the following folder:
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes

It is in this folder that you must unzip the .zip file to to that the path to the files looks like this:
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Preview.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_active_bar.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_inactive_bar.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/splash_top.png
~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/Theme.rc

You may have to create the ksplash/Themes folders. I don't think they existed by default on my setup.
Yes I know KDE3.2 allows you to test them, but it does not REALLY install the theme unless the files are setup as I've explained above.
Hope this helps! :) - Aug 14 2004
