In this site

there are, among others, a very similar theme:
ksplash-tuxntosh: http://wfmh.org.pl/carlos/debian/ksplash-tuxntosh_20040228-1_all.deb

Format is .deb - debian apt-get, but it can be converted with alien or kapkage can also install it.

It seems there is a problem... When I uncompress the file, I have an empty file of 0 octets... Then, this splash screen seems to be unusable for now...

Just download the screenshots to ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics

with the following names:
splash_top.png (the fat apple pinguin)
splash_active_bar.png (the icons)
splash_inactive_bar.png (the gray bar)

and it will work

hi guys...
i did that splash ,because i saw tux'n tosh
and thought it could be a good idea
and the x is a refference to aqua osX
and u've got to be honest if mac knows one thing it's to make a great gui with a great design...
so why not add it to your kde, it's a great gui
and i just like the design of macos..
can't help it :)

I can't understand why people like having these "X" of OS X or apple icon on their linux box. Ok rad-e8 iconset is very cool but i prefer mark difference between linux and other os in avoiding to use significatives logos.
[Please excuse my english.]

I understand your point, but you could think of the mentioned X as the one from "X"Windows.

I know, it's not a good reason to use the Mac icons. But some people like the sleek look of the icons. I personally prefer the good ol' everaldo icons.

In this case why not to create our own X symbol or improve the renderer of traditional X icon...
About mac icons, i use rad-e8 icons but without thoses mac symbols because even if everaldo icons are perfectly done, they look too "cartoonish" for me. It would be great if he could done a set more "professional" (sorry for the terms but my english isn't very developed...") I haven't forgot my own iconset but at the moment no time enough... and it's difficult to obtain good result with my cheap camera.
