Description:

K Desktop Environment.

T R A N S L U C E N T - K B F X

I hope you're running KBFX already, if not, install the KBFX rpm - or re-build for your distribution's prefix to $KDE - next, right-click Kicker taskbar, add KBFX applet - turn off applet handles etc ... using the configure panel as shown below.

Changing the K-Start Menu Image: - e.g. Start/Launch Image Button.
1. Locate and click your [Personal Files [Home] desktop icon.
Might be on your K-Menu if not the desktop. It's Konqueror File Manager.

2. Locate the KBFX K-Start Image: They are all in /usr/share/icons/; then
drag one over top of the KBFX K-Start position. Now turn off applet handles
like this below example.

Changing the Kicker Bar Image.
1. Right click 'Kicker' panel - e.g botton bar, usualy your taskbar in WindowsXX.
2. Chose from there - [Configure Panel]
3. Click Tab [Appearance] See section [Panel Background] - The rest is straight
forward but use 26 pixels or larger for kicker or the buttons will look off.

1. Notes for developers. You can change the defaults to /opt/kde3; or /usr/someplace;
by modifying this spec file for another location.
2. Using ImageMagick: convert xp.png xp.xpm
3. KBFX background images are in: /opt/kde/share/apps/kicker/wallpapers/;
4. KBFX K-Start/Launch images are in: /usr/share/icons/;

First contribution - I see how it works now. Thanks for the comment.

1. Thanks to http://kde.org for the gorgeous desktop.

2. Thanks to http://www.linuxlots.com/~siraj/ for the cool KBFX code.

3. Thanks to http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26560
which I used for KBFX template - XP_Empty to be exact.

4. Thanks to http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26035
for the background kicker/taskbar image(s).

5. Thanks for the inspiration: All KBFX related I've seen since. Man i love this place. Not in any order. I'm just pasting it this way as i recall:
1. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=27079
2. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=27018
3. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26857
4. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=26886

and lots more i missed. Yes, i know I've gone a lil overboard, but respect is what keeps open source healthy.

0.2 - Using KBFX 0.4.7.2
o - Updated KBFX start image to give a more plastic look effect.

o - Fixed some ugly artifact in the translucency effects.

o - Softened the KBFXBACK image so contrast is not so bright - gives a more plastic look now.

Thanks to Siraj for his new KBFX code. XP like menus and better themes are possible and happening now - works nicely.

0.3 - Using KBFX 0.4.7.3
o - Updated to Siraj 's next generation of excellence for KDE - KBFX - Thank you Siraj.

it seems you have pretty much made the content your own, but in my opinion rather than saying that you used "
someone's" content you should give this person credit for the contribution to your work.
