IMPORTANT - if upgrading from a previous installation of the Flat extras pack, you must first run "uninstall1b.sh, before installing this new version!

Here is my secret project - my plan to flatten KDE desktops around the world...
Muwahhaa... :)

The perfect addition to the Flat desktop style has arrived - the Flat extras pack. My quest for total integration of Flat into KDE continues...

This is no ordinary release: this package installs the following -

* Flat kde splash screen
* Flat colour scheme
* Flat Backgrounds
* Flat KDM icons
* Flat application splash screens for amarok, kverbos, kbear, umbrello, kstars, kdenlive, kontact
* Flat image integration for KControl, KBugbuster, bookcase, crash dialog, juk, kalzium, kaudiocreator, kbear, kchart, password dialog box,
shutdown dialog box, wizard dialog box, keduca, kgpg, kmenu side image, kiosktool, kmailcvt, konqueror, kpresenter, krfb and ksim.

Backups are made of the old images, for use with the uninstall script.

The screenshots show examples of the integration of Flat images.

I do not think that anything like this has been released before.
Many of the images have not yet been created, but this package will become more comprehensive as time passes.

-----
Standard disclaimer: Although the install.sh/uninstall.sh scripts have been tested, I cannot be held responsible for any problems resulting in the use of this package. These scripts must be run with root priviliges, as they copy image files to program directories. I do not advise complete beginners to use this package.
-----

--------------
Instructions
--------------

Unzip the package
Put the "flat-extras" folder in /tmp
Open up konsole
Type "su", and then your root password
Type "cd/ PATH TO SCRIPTS"
Type "sh install.sh"
The script will now install the images.

KDE may need to be restarted for some changes to occur.

To uninstall, run the "uninstall.sh" script as above. Your system will then be restored to it's previous state.


I await your feedback...

You know, flat isn't "for me" but dude I gotta commend your dedication - that's awesome!

I wish more artists had the same dedication you do :)

(and I wish I had graphic arts skills so I could be one of those "more artists" :P)

Can you PLEASE make the splash for 3.1? I like KDE 3.1 and do not plan to upgrade until the next one (no, not 3.2, maybe 3.3 or 3.4) comes out.

On the Flat (extras) WHOA!!! Flat will soon take over and be its default for the next version of KDE.

Thanks!
