Where can I get the wallpaper that you used in this screenshot? It is awesome and so are these buttons. Your moodin splash engine is sweet too. Thanks for all your great contributions. Keep up the great work!!

This wallpaper can now be found on this site located at http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=29966 but that person put a LinuxVista logo on it which looks dumb imo.

I'm a bit new to KDE, and I've got a few questions on how to get my setup as slick-looking as the screenshot.

I tried setting the included .png as the background, but there were still a lot of horrid button/minimized window backgrounds. How do I get rid of these? How did you remove the border from the minimized window buttons on the panel?

Also, do you have a corresponding theme that goes well with this?

Thanks in advance,

Jake

search for taskbar2 on kde-apps.org to have translucent taskbar entries (this feature is included in kde 3.5). maybe its already included in your distribution. its name could also be "mtaskbar"

sometimes kicker needs a restart to show all the stuff as u expect, so just invoke:
dcop kicker kicker restart
on the commmand line

i have no theme at all, but i can make one for you. just email me. thats no problem

Why does everyone always talk about manualy editing the kbfx config file to change buttons? On my system, all one has to do is drag and drop a new kbfx icon overtop of the old one and it changes to the new one. No configuration fiddling whatsoever. Is it just Debian? Did I just get lucky somehow? Or, is it that some Linux geeks just can't resist the urge to manually edit config files? I'm at a loss...

He probably tries to ask you whether you have a vista-lookalike window decoration installed.
