First of all this comment is not directed so much at the auther of this wallpaper but everyone that submits to this site.

It seems to me that the spirit of Linux is to create something and submit it to the community with source, then other people either fork it and start their own, like it the way it is or make improvements then submit it back.

Why doesn't anyone ever supply the source to these images?

All anyone ever does is submit the static image and then everyone bitches about changes they want or :0 "I love it, your wonderful, here's my daughter, do some more"

What a bunch of crap.

This site would explode with submissions and variations of different wallpapers if the code went along packaged with the static image.

What about themes and icon sets? Do them the same way!

I say to all submitters. Supply the original gimp, sodipodi or whatever file along with your final art.

I like what little I can see of your wallaper. I try to "[Download]", all I get is a large picture of your sample thumbnail with all your programs open.

You need to check your download file link. I download wallpaer all the time from here. There is something wrong in your link. - Aug 27 2003

Karamba Mini-How-To for RH8
Last Revised 04-07-03
email: rootnuke@yahoo.com


Some might find these instructions painfully detailed others may find them helpful. Everything to follow is a culmination of everything I found on the posts which allowed me to successfully install Karamba on several RedHat v8.0 stations. I hope this helps.

Comments and suggestions are welcome! Send to rootnuke@yahoo.com

DOWNLOADING KARAMBA, SCRIPTS AND THEMES
Download latest version of Karamba and Scripts from http://www.efd.lth.se/~d98hk/karamba/
into your home directory.

Using Konquerer or some other GUI file manager create a directory in your home directory called karamba. Double click on each downloaded file revealing the compressed folder. Right click and copy the scripts folder to the karamba directory. Do the same for the Karamba tar and paste it into your /home directory.

the end result will be;

/home/karamba-X.XX/source files
/home/karamba/script
/home/karamba/themes

Note: You can have your script and theme files anywhere you want. I like the home
directory because it's easier for me.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NEEDED PACKAGES
Open a Konsole session and make sure you have the following packages installed on your system;

kdelibs-devel
qt-devel
libart_lgpl-devel
libart_lgpl

Do this by typing rpm -q packagename.
For example: rpm -q qt-devel


KARAMBA INSTALLATION
Open a Konsole terminal session which should default to your home directory and change into the karamba-X.XX directory by typing;

cd karamba-0.15

Depending on your version of Karamba your directory name will vary.

Now it's time to compile and install Karamba. Inside the Karamba-X.XX
directory type the following.

Note: Karamba's site specifies the command for ./configure as
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
...this failed on my installation.)

What worked for me was the following;

make -f Makefile.cvs && ./configure && make
su
{yourpassword}
make install

MAKE YOUR SCRIPTS EXECUTABLE
If you will have your scripts and themes in a place other than your home directory you will use the File Manager - Super User file manger GUI to change the scripts to executable. File Manager - Super User is located in Extras - System Tools - File Manager Super User Mode. Otherwise just use your regular GUI file manager to change the files. To change the files to executable right click on each file and select Properties, Permissions and check Exec. Perform this change on each of your scripts located in
/home/karamba/scripts.

SETTING YOUR PATHING TO SCRIPTS DIRECTORY
In order for you to run the script it must be in the search path of your system. Run your file browser select View and select Show Hidden Files. Right click on the file .bash_profile. Right click the file and select Open with.. Text Editor. Place a # sign to
remark out the current PATH command and place the following path command below;

PATH=$PATH:/home/{yourname}/karamba/scripts:$HOME/bin

Note: {yourname} is the directory name in the system home directory
Example: If your home directory name is bob then your path would be;
PATH=$PATH:/home/bob/karamba/scripts:$HOME/bin

I personally like the Konsole method so for the text non-GUI oriented, open a Konsole terminal session edit the .bash_profile file which is a hidden file in your home directory. Your command to open and edit the file as above would be;

pico .bash_profile

To run the .bash file to make your changes take effect type;
source .bash_profile

To determine if the changes did take effect you can run;
echo $PATH

You should see your new path in the listing along with any other paths that were in your path string.

More information regarding path instructions can be found at RedHat :)
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/getting-started-guide/s1-q-and-a-starting.html

Close all your programs and restart your X server with ctrl+alt+backspace

TRY IT OUT
Open your Konsole and type karamba. Select your theme in
/home/{yourname}/karamba/themes/whatever.theme

Right click on the theme window and adjust as desired. If the theme is empty then you need to check either your pathing or script executable steps above. - Apr 07 2003

The calender, weather, slashdot etc themes dont show anything. They are just empty. Whenever I mouse over them, let's say slashdot I get a finger pointer as if there is something there. When I left click it opens my home directory. :/

When I load some of the other themes that have hdd capacity, cpu/memory usage they work fine.

Any idea's? - Apr 06 2003

So to RH8 users here's what I did

make sure you have..

kdelibs-devel
qt-devel
libart_lgpl-devel
libart_lgpl

do this by typing rpm -q packagename

unpack karamba
cd karamba directory
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
su (yourpassword)
make install

Download a karamba theme and run it.
Right-click on it to change it. - Apr 06 2003

I received a qt? error while running ./configure. I currently have qt-3.0.5-17 installed.

I have both gnome and kde loaded with all dev stuff. I also update monthly with krud. Which for anyone interested is a great alternative to 65.00 per year to RedHat (per machine)for updates instead of RedHat Network crap.

But back to the qt issue...

Saddam is guilty by association.
Those that are terrorists or states that harbor terrorist will be dealt with.

Just go back to your "cushy" little fantasy world. Saddam will be brought down shortly. He will be used as an example to other rogue states. Countries which are founded on a Republic form of government with a free economy are the best way and IMHO the ONLY way.

:)

PS: If you happen to look at a world map you'll notice that Iran is conveniently located between freed Afganistan and soon to be freed Iraq. Surely Iran would not be stupid enough to harbor any Al-qaeda. If they are smart they won't.

PPS: If you get a chance tell the little communist dictator "Troll Doll" up in North Korea not too sleep too easy at night. His day's are numbered as well. Most likely China will slap him upside the head for us. China loves money and they don't want anyone messing up their little Communist/Capitalist experiment.

PPPS: Try reading sometime, your arguments bore me. - Mar 01 2003

Iraq has been subjected to a totalitarian regime since July 1968, when Saddam Hussein seized power in the name of the Ba'th Party. Since then Saddam has plundered the resources of this nation for both internal and external aggression. Iraq is a wealthy nation with plentiful oil resources, but the Iraqi regime chooses to use those resources for violence. Iraq devoted 37.9% of its oil money to military expenditures in 1975, 75% in 1980, 177% in 1985, and 89% in 1989.

In 1980 and 1991, Iraq invaded two of its neighbors. The war against Iran, lasted from September 1980 to August 1988, during which hundreds of thousands died on both sides, and Saddam used chemical weapons on numerous occasions.

In August 1991 Saddam plunged Iraqis into a second war. The destruction on Iraq by the allied bombing and invasion, and the sanctions regime imposed as a result of the Iraqi leadership's policies, has killed an unknown number of civilians, set back Iraq's development by decades, and reduced an otherwise wealthy nation to a state of poverty.

Saddam is also responsible for a long history of internal repression against the Iraqi people. Mass murder, execution, torture, "disappearances," rape, and forced deportation are all used against real or imagined enemies to the state. In 1975, the Saddam waged his first war against the Kurdish citizens of Iraq, and in 1987, the regime carried out the notorious "Anfal" campaign that killed thousands of Kurds, with 100,000-180,000 more deemed "disappeared". In 1988 the regime used chemical weapons against the Kurdish town of Halabja, killing over 5,000 civilians and wounding thousands more.

In March 1991, immediately following the Gulf war, the Iraqi regime turned its Republican Guard units against citizens who had risen in rebellion against the regime - partly at the urging of the Allies. But without support form Allied forces, most of these people were massacered by Saddam's forces. In the south, the regime's defense minister bragged that the Republican Guard had killed 300,000 people.

Human rights abuses by the state are practiced daily in Iraq, against all sectors of the population indiscriminately. The prisons are overflowing, and the regime periodically conducts "prison-cleaning": mass executions to reduce the population of inmates. Officers and officials are executed regularly for their alleged involvement in conspiracies. In 1993, the International Commission of Jurists said that the human rights situation inside Iraq is worse than any country since the end of World War II. - Feb 28 2003

Can you make more? How about an icon with a picture of the World Trade Center and the number 3000 for the people who died! How about a "1.5m" for the number of people that Saddam has murdered! How about about an icon for each one of the chem. weapon type Iraq has? Be creative.

Rickety-Rick...Saddam on a stick! I can't wait...all I want to see is the little greasy spot that's left of Saddam in 30days.

Have a nice day! Tux Rules! - Feb 28 2003
