thank you very much once more, you gave me a lot to think about... I hadnt even considered that many do not even use ksplash.... :)

michail - Mar 26 2012
hm9, thank you very much once more,

I would like a lot to have your opinion on the partner ksplash theme which you can find it here:

For some reason the kdm theme is double as popular comparing to the ksplash theme, even though I think of them as equal. But I can not really understand why. For me both themes are considered equal...
For me it's a mystery why the ksplash theme is not considered as good as the kdm one....
- Mar 26 2012
hm9, thank you very much,

Thanks also for noting that FreeBSD needs manual installation for kdm themes. I have added FreeBSD in the distributions that need manual installation just like Kubuntu and OpenSuse (you can see it in the description above)

Thank you once more for you kind words, I hope that you will keep like the theme...

Michail - Mar 26 2012
Thank you very much... I did not know that there was
an issue with the server. I changed the location so I think that now you will be able to find them always available... - Jan 27 2012

I 've tested the new version with Kubuntu 10.10. User list did not appear also in Kubuntu (I found out after your comments...). I just disabled two lines from the previous version and the user list now appears...

Please test the new version to tell me if that's ok with you...

One small issue: The second user in the user list appears always a white background in Kubuntu but I dont have this problem with OpenSuse. I have to think about it but it's probably a distro spesific issue because I have the same problem also with other kdm themes in Kubuntu...

- Apr 12 2011

can you give me some information? What is your distro? and what kde version do you use?

I use KDE4.6.2(from the official repo-with no suse patches) in OpenSuse11.4

I am going to create some virtual machines in order to find exactly what's the case... - Apr 11 2011
nice to hear that ray...

Dear Sascha,

thank u very much... - Mar 22 2011
Hello Janet,

sorry to hear that...
1) For the background choice I will keep with this one for some time, maybe make it a little cleaner in the future, i dont know yet... If you want the old background you can find it at beckas @ deviantart:

2) For the user list I dont know why it is not showing to you. I use opensuse 11.4 and kde 4.6.1 . Maybe, have you enabled the choice to show user list from inside the control center -> login screen?

With regards,
Michail - Mar 19 2011
Dear Janet,

I have just uploaded the new main version which has two sub versions (one with users list and one with no). Along with many other tweaks and a new handmade background in inkscape... Hope you like it...

With regards,
Michail - Mar 18 2011
I am sorry but the ftp provider has some issues. When it is fixed I'll enable again the downloads... Just for a taste, I prepared the new version with new handmade background, two versions with user list and not, and many other tweaks... :) So patience everybody... - Mar 16 2011
Janet thank you very much....
Yes I can create a version with user list, but the only problem I have is in ideas... :) I had tried in the past but it didnt integrate that good... for example the user list inside a notepad etc... If you have any ideas I am all ears... :) If not I'll create one hoping in good quality, it's gonna take some days...

Dear Dago,

thank u very much... In 1.1.2 I fixed the orthography :) Sorry about that, I used Google Translation and during copy paste something was lost in the prosedure... :)

Dear Andy,

thank you very much and welcome to the beautiful open source community :)

I dont use Kubuntu so I installed it in a Virtual Machine to test it. Here's your steps:

For Kubuntu 10.10:

1) Download version 1.1.1 from your browser (I suggest Firefox, do not use rekonq for this download, maybe there are some small issues with it)

2) Go to "System Settings"->Login Screen->Theme->Install New Theme

3) Press the Folder Icon and find the file RedChenille_KDM-1.1.1.tar.gz

4)Press Ok and Enter your password

5)Click Red Chenille in the list and Press Apply (window's bottom right corner)

6)Enter your password

7)Restart Your Computer

and Have Fun!!! :)

After you install the theme you can go to the following folder:

<home folder>/.kde4/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/RedChenille-KDE/

in this folder there are two other folders 1600x1200 and 1920x1200. In each one there is an image called background.png.

So you can replace the background.png files with your image(do not forget to rename your image to background.png and also that it must be in png format)...

Have a good creating... :) - Feb 15 2012

thank u very much for the contact, I have just uploaded a 1920x1200 png version by combining the various elements from the ksplash theme: - Apr 11 2011
Thank you very much inalbyss
... :) - Jan 18 2011
If the png version is ok for you now, please make a reply...

Thank you... - Jan 17 2011
I enabled version 1.2.4

Because pngs are 5x times bigger comparing to jpgs, I created two versions the default with jpgs and the second with pngs for kde versions <=4.4 - Jan 17 2011
Ok so it doesnt like jpg in KDE 4.4, wait a few minutes for version 1.2.3 that I ll enable png for the background... - Jan 17 2011
I think I found a problem, in a few minutes version 1.2.2 will be ready... The problem was that I have created the theme for resolution 1600x1200, in small resolutions near 1024x768 there were errors... So I enabled auto scaling but I dont know if it's going to look that good... Please inform me if you dont like the result comparing to your resolution... - Jan 17 2011
I cant figure out why, no special packages are needed. I checked between KDE 4.4 and 4.5 and I didnt find any changes for ksplash...

The command:

ksplashx RedChenille-KDE --test

if you try it at the command line after you install the theme does it show anything interesting as error?
- Jan 17 2011
Are you trying manual install or through "Get New Themes"?
Any error message or something?

I tested it in OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.5 - Jan 17 2011
Thank you very much...

You should try the new version 1.2 also... :) - Jan 16 2011

Hello this extension is fantastic... I couldnt live without it...

One small issue, I think that the extension is aware of kde activities(because if I restart my computer normally then on the next boot my firefox windows are on the right activity and workspace...

1)But if I use private browsing and then return to normal, then all the previous windows show on the current workspace...

thank you for using my animations,
just one small hint, I think the default resolution for ksplash is 1600x1200. You must create a folder for that because otherwise for big resolutions it creates a black box around the background...

Thank you again... - Jan 17 2011

My friend I think that is the best work in icons you have to continue it...
It is very eye - candy...

P.S. Can you please add an icon for .class files? I think there isn't one, they are JAVA's compiled files...

Thank you... - Jan 21 2006

My friend this program is fantastic, it's an innovation in KDE Desktop, I find something although,
I use KDE 3.4.2 in Fedora Core 4 and I have enabled the transparent windows and shadows in the translucency option in Control Panel everything works fine with yakuake except that is a bit slow, but there is a small problem, when I enable shadows and yakuake minimizes leaves in his position a shadow that can't disappear from the screen even if you try to refresh desktop.... - Oct 06 2005
