I am hopefully going to have support for icon themes in my next release.

Those are very icons!! Do you know if they are GPL? I couldn't tell because the author didn't have any licensing information on the site. If they are I can pull them into another theme. - Jul 04 2008

Plasma 4 Extensions by rowancompsciguy 127 comments

This may be because I had the wrong tarball posted. Try downloading again and let me know what happens.

Also, there is a dependency of the plasmoid on the wget program. If you do not have wget installed the plasmoid will not work correctly. I am going to try and remove the dependency in my next release but my QT skills are not that great so it may take me a little while.

Let me know if neither of these solutions fix your problem and I'll try and come up with something else. - Jul 04 2008

Plasma 4 Extensions by rowancompsciguy 127 comments

Sorry about that. I finished up the code late last night and didn't realize that when I uploaded the tarball that it was too big for KDE-Look. :-)

I've moved it to a file sharing site for now so that it can be downloaded. I'm going to move it to my web site when I get a chance.

Thanks for the report!! - Jul 04 2008

Thank you. That's some of the best plasma documentation I've seen so far. I wish I would have found that earlier ;-).

That's disappointing that there's already a weather widget in the works. I'm wondering whether or not I should continue with my work. Maybe I should try and contribute directly to the new project. What is the best way to get onto a pre-existing KDE project? - Jul 01 2008

Plasma 4 Extensions by rowancompsciguy 127 comments

Thank you!! This is my first QT program EVER so I'm learning as I go. I'm sure I've made a few mistakes along the way.

I appreciate the information about the weather engine. I have a question though. Is the weather engine designed to retrieve weather data for other plasmoids or is it its own plasmoid?

I've had a really difficult time finding good documentation for plasma. It's probably changing daily so maybe documentation is premature. I've managed to create my plasmoid using some of the basic documentation that is available and also reading LOTS of plasmoid code from other developers.

Thanks for the comment. - Jul 01 2008

This is one of my favorite themes. I think it's pretty much perfect except for some minor polishing. One issue I have experienced with it is that there is not logout menu that appears when I try to logout of KDE. I'm not sure if that's because of an issue with your theme or because of a packaging issue with my version of KDE. - Jun 09 2008

Ahhh... that's what I figured. In my Google searching for variable brush stroke size, I saw a forum where people were talking about that being implemented in Photoshop and not in The Gimp.

Mandriva wallpaper

Wallpapers Mandriva by Rosafante 5 comments

You wallpaper looks amazing!! I have a question though. In the wallpaper that I created for Kubuntu that emulates your's, I had a pretty good idea of how to emulate what you did except for that curvy line that you have. I'm not sure if you know what I'm talking about. It's a line that runs through the logo and starts off very small and gets gradually bigger and tapers off at the end. I looked all throughout the Gimp and looked through the web for tutorials to do something like that and I couldn't find anything. Would you mind sharing how you did it? Thanks so much!! - Jan 13 2008

Cursors by jmariani 3 comments

I can't find anywhere on the wincustomize site where they mention anything about licensing. In that case, I would assume that the author holds all rights to the artwork. And if the author holds all rights to the artwork then you would have to resolve any licensing issues with them. This means that it's probably not OK to post them here without the authors express permission. You would also have to discuss what license to release the work under with the author. - Jan 12 2008

KClock

Karamba & Superkaramba by linuxbob 61 comments

This is a great widget. Thanks so much!! I did have one minor issue with it. The path to my clock images contains spaces so inkscape would bomb out when converting the svg file to the appropriate png file size. I just wrapped svgpath and pngpath in the inkspace commandline calls with quotes and that did the trick. I'm not sure if anyone else is having that problem. I think the files I changed were buildImages.py and Style.py.

Thanks again for a great theme!! - Jan 05 2008

Big titlebar

Beryl/Emerald Themes by dosse 4 comments

I don't understand the usability to this modification. I understand really small titlebars that sacrifice ease of minimizing, closing, etc in order to gain more screen space. I understand the "medium", for lack of a better word, size titlebars that sacrifice a little screen space to make it easier to minimize, close, etc. Your design doesn't seem to have a benefit. It's just a large titlebar that obscures more of the screen than it needs to and doesn't do much else. Maybe I'm missing the point, but I just don't see the benefit to having such a large titlebar. - Oct 23 2007

Kopete Shiny Emoticons

Emoticons by rowancompsciguy 4 comments

I'm afraid I don't quite understand your comment. I have no issues with Kopete, however it does not meet my needs so I use Pidgin. I have posted this theme to both KDE-Look (because a lot of people, myself included, use Pidgin with KDE even though it's a GTK application) and GNOME-Look because parties from both camps use Pidgin.

I'm somewhat perplexed by the lack of any meaningful comments and this work's pitiful rating. I would hope that someone could shed some light on the subject without giving me a GTK vs QT/KDE vs GNOME reason. I can't make my stuff better if I don't know what's wrong with it. - Aug 22 2007

Yes, you are correct. You want to replace the original intro.bmp file with the new one(s) that I made. For me (I'm using Fedora Core 6) the file is located in /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/ but I believe it is different for other distros. I'm not sure why your intro.bmp would be the wrong file. I would change the name of the original file and insert the new to experiment. I hope it works out for you!! :-) - May 20 2007

Thanks for getting back to me on this. I was unaware that they were moving away from PNG format. Is this documented anywhere? It seems kind of strange that KDE is going alienate an entire image format and by proxy entire sets of wallpapers, icons, etc. - May 07 2007

Konsole Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by rowancompsciguy 4 comments

I agree it would be nice to package them in a set. I don't really have enough icons to do that right now and I don't know if I ever will. I appreciate your vote of confidence though :-). Perhaps someday I'll have enough to create a theme, but in the meantime I think I may just release them piecemeal.

One question I have is if I were to release a theme, say with the icons I currently have, what happens to icons that I don't have icons for? Are they supplemented with some other package or is better for me to start with someone else's completed package and replace their icons with mine as I create them? I've never actually tried it before. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! - May 05 2007

I don't understand why people vote things down and don't leave any comments explaining why. This and a lot of your other 3D works look amazing and yet have low ratings. It's easy to just click the "bad" button and be on your way, but the artist and community benefit nothing from you doing this. I feel like if you're not going to bother to leave constructive criticism then don't bother voting. You get a good from me. :-) - May 05 2007
