Karamba & Superkaramba by Matti 1797 comments

strange i had the "blocks-between-fonts-problem" it when i tried running it with 0.35 but the blocks disappeared when using 0.36.

I used the ubuntu superkaramba 0.36 deb from kde-look.org

How about integrating it with the universal sidebar? Won't that be more practical?

Or u can have two functions one where it pops up when something is new and waits for a few moments before it times out and disappears.

It should then be added to a list on the sidebar so that the user can check it whenever whatever he wants. And as he checks them out they disappear.

When the user logs out, the item list on the sidebar gets purged. Or wait in the interest of session management should it be retained? Not sure.

What do u think? - Jan 25 2004

i like it. But one thing could u change the colour of the close button of the title bar to red. The blue really looks out of place there. Other than that no gripes. Thanks for the great theme. - Dec 07 2003

This is not a fork anymore than u can say that kdelibs is a fork of QT. this is a wrapper and i am guessing a lot of guys who make the karamaba themes wil appreciate this. Good show! - Sep 13 2003

Improvement Request: Trash Applet

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by liquidrock222 8 comments

a healthy argument never hurt anyone. come on maitre, the trash applet would be most welcome.

Anyhow let this matter be resolved once and for all. kde-look doesn't mean justartwork, but also all UI related stuff.

All in favour say aye!! - May 20 2003

Improvement Request: Trash Applet

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by liquidrock222 8 comments

This isn't the first time, and i doubt whehter it will be the last.

Some time back I remember having an argument about whether 'look' in kde-look represented UI design or merely artwork. We finally never agreed on anything, but the fact that from time to time ppl do post offtopic here regarding the UI is that to the end user, this seems a logical place to post, even though for us regulars it isn't.

Maybe this site should have a link saying Feature requests plz post here kind of thing? Then newbies know that there is a place specifically like for stuff.

Also I think kde.org as such could use a little rewamping. Nothing wrong with the existing design I mean it has all the links, but there are better ways to present stuff. For that matter I really like kde-look.org site's design better with its organisation for different stuff. But then kde.org has so much information and so many links to present to that it may be difficult to organise it in the same way.

There are a lot of holes in my reasoning. But I think, I am getting the point across?

And no i am not trolling. This is simply an expression of my humble opinion. You are free to disagree, and I would really like to hear ur opinion.

Of course this is also totally offtopic :-) - May 19 2003

Tux Cursor!

Cursors by MasterSeven 56 comments

Don't really have any better words to describe my feelings onseeing this.
Only one thing, and i guess its probably only me, but tux(the face atleast looks more like a raven than a penguin in this. Not that i have anything against ravens, but could u make tux a bit more chubbier faced more like the orignal tux ??

Thanks a million for making the best cursor set in the history of WIMP (windows icons mouse pointers that is) atleast according to me - Mar 10 2003

if u r still using kde 2.2 and want dot net style menus and transparency ur best bet is to compile the teax dotnet theme. It should be still there under themes/kde2.2.

applicable but

this was about designing clean ui Since elmo seems to aim towards a very clean look, thought this might help.

And before anyone asks NO i am not trying to support gnome. I am strictly neutral.

and ok this probably goes against what i posted above but what about the option of transparent dot net style menus :) - Feb 04 2003
Not quite kicker

Kicker Panel by fop 84 comments

Let the close button will appear soemwhere in the left corner where the K button is.

Have an option of a sticky card, If the sticky option is removed, the card disappears when the mouse is moved off (kind of like the taskbar thingummy in windows) that way everybody is happy.

Just a suggestion make the K bigger definitely like a logo kind of thing (on two rows) and let the quick launch items appear in two rows. This will distinguish this as a special K card.

Now if the cards can be translucent when not selected this would make them convinient to stay on top sort of thing, even if u are running a window fullscreen. Or u can have a special card key to make them appear even when ur running a window fullscreen.

These are just suggestions. I spent sometime trying to visualise the practical implications of using cards and his is what i came up with. Hope these are useful.

Not quite kicker

Kicker Panel by fop 84 comments

This is lovely. it is a revolutionary concept.

But just a small suggestion. Can the K button alone not be made a card? My idea is like a maybe a right triangular K button (A bit curved on the hypoteneuse convexing towards the edge of the screen or jagged?) expanding to both rows of the card, and quick luanch items appearing in both the rows.

(This way the K is on
the edge nobody can miss it :)

When u click the K button the card along with he quick lauch shoots up but the K remains at the left bottom.

Why I am asking this is I have this habit of clicking K to launch the menu and clicking K again to close it, in case i suddenly change my mind. In ur pic the logout button appears where the k would normally be after the card is selected :).Call me lazy but a card does nullify this advantage of a menu.

i also think a bigger K button would be more helpful. That way even ppl switching from windows will have a easier time.("Hey there is that big K sticking out against the smaller buttons, it has to be the start button"):)

What do u think ppl? - Nov 23 2002

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by CraigD 12 comments

add rounded corners for the bottom as well, it will look really good.(it already does).

I kind of like the round buttons on the title bar goes pretty well with the oval title area if u aren't used to the orignal style that is :).But a lot of ppl won't so i guess its the good thing its an option.

How about also putting an option for close miimize maximise symbols to appear floating in the round buttons (yes i know aqua doens't use that but its just a suggestion).

Off topic but seeing kword i just wanted to ask. Does anybody know when an export filter for MS word will be ready for kword.

I love kword 1.2 it's got everything i need, except this:(. (I share docs with ppl at work who use word)

Good show, and thanks a million. - Nov 22 2002

Various Stuff by daniele 39 comments

screenshot? u r being very modest danielle. Ur kicker is a work of art. There are minor glitches like those arrows :) but who cares this is absolutely fantastic. U think that with kde 3.1 the kde guys have done it all and now somebody springs a surprise. This definitely should be a part of kde 3.2 no kde 3.1.1 !!
Now if only kde could run on berlin... oh well i'll keep deaming. Keep up the good work!!!

Marbles 0.1.3 (Translucent)

Icon Sub-Sets by Markus 44 comments

beauifully done. I just want to say how much i appreciate you for taking the time and effort for this work of art.
A small request. Would u join the community icon project. and just a small idea. The marbles could actually be used as say a marker. Like if a folder were locked then it would have a red marble around it. Or even better make the marble an emblem (provided they add that in kde of course) like how they have in nautilus. Or maybe marles could be used to indicate applications and non marbles for devices file systems etc. The possibilities are end less.

Good work and plz join the community project.

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by ilinux 6 comments

Now i don't want to start a row over which linux distro is better, but I am a redhat user. All the same, i agree, the logo takes away the sheen of the splash screen. Besides, a red spot in the middle of all that blue really jars.
But the splash is otherwise fabolous. - Apr 10 2002

Lovely splash. But one hitch. The K at the right doesn't go too well with thte othr icons. Make it more photographic. Take the slick K for example. Otherwise it's gorgeou and very professional looking, elegant, smooth . I can go on and on... - Mar 29 2002

KDE Plasma Screenshots by gerrit 26 comments

When i saw Conectiva crystal icon set, i was imagining a 'crystal planet' theme to go with it. Looks like someone beat me to it. Hell it looks better than what i had thought of. Kudos maestro. Plz plz include as default look of kde 3.1. Frankly looks slicker tahn the aqua theme of liquid. However, it will look nicer if we could get translucent menus semi transparent title bars (u know what i am thinking of!!:)

It's not mine. The kicker background was submitted in kde-look earlier to be used along with mosfet's liquid 0.7. I don't remember who it was, but i really am very grateful for his work, and hope he doesn't mind me distributing it along with this theme. it just goes so well with it. - Mar 18 2002

M$ ME background? All i know is i got this in a set of backgrounds mailed to me by a friend. Mostly landscapes, and this one was particularly appelaing to me, so i tried making a theme over it.

If you don't like the background then don't use it. I will try to find an alternative, but where the heck can u get an iceberg?!! - Mar 18 2002

To others. plz check out my ice wing dale theme which seems to go very well with thi icon set. And tell me what u think thanks all - Mar 15 2002

Errr this has probably nothing to do with my theme, but to the creator of the slick icon set thanks a lot and a small request. Make the CDrom and floppy icons more #D u know like that of IKons but with the photo realistic look if u know what i mean. the same goes for the printer icon. Hope it doesn't inconvinience you too much.
