The Reinhardt Icon Set

, then we can use SVGs for the Throbber too :D )
Actually, the throbber in konqueror doesn't use a single animated image, rather it uses a series of images (action/kde[1-15], IIRC) search around in your $KDEBASE/share/icons/default set. - Jul 13 2004
The Way that KDM should look

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by boskicinek 112 comments

In addition to that, it will be themeable (and compatible with GDM themes). I am not working on the project personally (I think there is only one dev doing work for it now) it looks like its coming along. Just needs svg support (via ksvg). - Dec 14 2003
UI enhancement (KDE 3.1.3)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by equinoxe 139 comments

My KDE is a clean CVS (I.e. no patches) and the text shadow does a pretty good job. I tried modifying my $HOME/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc file according to the .cpp and .h files in kdesktops subdir. However it doesn't seem to make any difference. Here is a snipplet:
[FX]
Shadow.Algorithm=RadialDecay
Shadow.Scale=3
I believe that is correct, oh well, at least I can control the color :) - Jul 08 2003
Kppp pixmap replacements

But really, I agree with you about the dock icons. Those were a 3 minute hack. I simply don't like working with 24x24 pixels, I'd rather have a 48x48 icon _minimum_.

I seem to have the worst luck with screenshots for some reason. Well, the previews for the screenshots look blank, but the screenshots themselves are still visible when you click the preview. - Jun 30 2003

If you want to change the color of the icon set, you don't have to wait for someone to change the hue values of all of the icons because KDE can do that for you. Go to the icon kcm module and then to the icon effects tab (I appollogize if this is not the accurate name, my hard disk on my linux box isn't working properly, so I must bite the bullet with this Win95 machine :( ) then choose "All Icons" in the list (I think "All Icons" should be there in pre-3.x versions of KDE) then select the Colorize effect for the different icon states. - May 24 2003

seem like they would make a nice icon theme. It would sortof drop the folder metaphore with a "bunch of papers between to sheets of glass" metaphore, but it would look nice. - Apr 30 2003

Geocities is currently hosting my images, so you might come across a "Page has exceeded allowed data transfer" Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do short of finding another hosting site. Anybody recommend any free hosts? - Apr 29 2003

Ideas for many minor KDE improvements

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by axeljaeger 6 comments

Though some things will require some additional coding (in the form of scripts) Here is a basic .desktop file that will add a fully functional Touch command to the context menus.

ServiceTypes=allfiles
Actions=touchFile

[Desktop Action touchFile]
Name=Touch the file
Icon=reload
Exec=touch %F - Apr 27 2003

Hey, in a future release, could you add the ability to change the shadow color. So you can have sort of a "aura" effect. Thanks - Apr 13 2003

I'm using the 4349 drivers ATM, I'll try downgrading tomorrow to see if that works, otherwise I'll try to poke around in the source a little. Thanks anyway :) - Apr 06 2003

Yeah, using smaller pictures fixes the problem, but its not because of my graphics card not having enough memory. Its a GeForce4 w/128 megs-o-ram - Apr 05 2003

Karamba & Superkaramba by themesKnugen 222 comments

..when you have wallpapers constantly cycling wallpapers the transparent areas of the cards don't update automatically. Instead I had to reload that particular .theme. Other than that, its awesome, hope to see it included in the future KDE releases :) - Apr 04 2003

When I see the preview in the setup dialog, it looks nice and normal. When I run it, however, the first image just fades to black with no other images fading in. - Apr 04 2003

I really like this screen saver, its better, IMHO, to many of those closed-source screensavers for Windows. I can't wait till the cloud featers will be available :).
One thing I wish there were more of: more firework types (yes, I said more :), as well as matching sounds. For example, big booms for the ones that flash, maybe a crackle for a lot of the others, don't forget the wistling kind. The fireworks like in LOTR would be nice too :) - Mar 17 2003
