KDE 3.x Window Decorations by dralgebra 175 comments

tbh i dont really think the composite manager is hardware friendly enough just yet!! my graphics card cant cope with the real tranparencies so i left them off and am now using the crystal gl decos with 3.4. i would love a more stable version of the decos tho as they still crash sometimes =( - Apr 27 2005
you can actually get kopete to do animated emoticons - just rename a gif to .png and use it in an emoticon theme. i dled the crystalmess theme and then swapped some of the pngs for my own and some of the pngs i used were renamed moving gifs - i get earthworm jim animated when someone does a 'grr' face! - Apr 23 2005

Wallpaper Other by alexdark 7 comments

what a great wallpaper - its actually the first one on here i have ever had the urge to download! well done, and nice touch with the linux distros in the corner except they may look a little too much like icons for some people's desktops.

cool tho! =) - Mar 23 2005

hmm ok, i may stick with 3.3.2 for the moment then, as to be honest i am not all that keen on the full window transparencies like in OSX i think they can look pretty tacky. i am so pleased with how my desktop looks, i just wish it was a little more stable.

did u check out the pics i made of it? i stuck them up on my site:

ive noticed that kde 3.4 has just been released, but i was wondering how window decorations like this and other extra features that were designed for 3.3 will work on 3.4? will i need to wait for new versions? - Mar 20 2005

i have noticed tho it tends to crash KDE when firefox is running or when I am switching virtual desktops, but as long as i dont overload it it is ok! - Feb 03 2005

good stuff m8! this is one of the best window decorations i have ever seen and certainly looks far better than the tacky and overused mac osx transparencies. a little buggy (it slows considerably when firefox is up) so i will look out for later editions, but all things considered very impressive, very smooth, and very customizable!

keep it up! =)
