A few years back, there was talk of merging Oxygen and Oxygen-Transparent. (I think around KDE 4.6)

Is it still in the plans somewhere to merge them?

The reason I ask, is because I've used Oxygen-Transparent for a long time now, and I really love it, and would very much like to see it get some more mainstream attention.

And, for whatever it's worth, oxygen-transparent is the only theme I've tried so far that has managed to feel attractive, functional and subtle. Most other styles either look bland, or make font unreadable in certain cases or otherwise is so "in your face" that you can only handle it for short periods at a time. - Oct 11 2012

Sorry, my bad. I see that they've released Basket beta2 in the meanwhile... - Oct 01 2010

I'm glad to see that someone finally made a Basket clone! I'm a big fan of the original Basket Note Pads, its exactly what I need.

But its just been stagnant for soooo long. After years of inactivity they finally released a beta version for KDE 4 a while back, but haven't been heard from since... As great as Basket is, it just doesn't seem to get the TLC it really needs.

Anyway, I just want to encourage you, by saying that I'm really excited about KWeshWhateverTheRestOfTheNameIs, and that I'll be keeping my eye on it. (My mother REALLY needs a Basket like program on Windows.)

Unfortunately I'll have to stick with Basket until KWesh can import my baskets, but I'm really glad that you've decided to take up this project. Best of luck!

P.S. You might want to update your installation instructions. After 'make' its 'sudo make install'. Or at least it was for me, it wouldn't copy the binary to /usr/local/bin until I gave it root privelages with 'sudo'. - Oct 01 2010
