KDE 3.5 Themes by technoshaun 8 comments

I haven't tested the theme but it looks a bit too saturated on the screenshots. No offense intended, I'll have to check it first :)

And thanks for using my cursors... Interesting someone actually uses them :) (they don't fit into my current theme, so I neither use them right now.) - Dec 26 2007
Kirocker Music Display

Audio Apps by Sebien 324 comments

About the transparent kicker thing, I am working on a patch to make it really transparent and allow an overlay image with alpha channel in it at the same time.

It will be included in KDEmod as it stabilizes and posted on kde-look too.

So no further "hack" modifying the kicker background by using your background image.

Just for your information :)

And... Kirocker rocks! Keep it up! - Nov 19 2007
I Hear U

Telephony by mtrotta 58 comments

Add dcop support and some kind of event handling or at least knotify integration and it will be perfect... No, just let me add one thing... Zeroconf integration would be great too, so you could fill the dropdown box with possible participants automatically.

Are there any plans to add webcam video? If you would plan that I would be the happiest person ever :)

I don't know how complicated it would be to port this to windows but it's worth a look. This could get an alternative to skype if done right (of course that would be a longer journey then :) )

I'll look into the code and check what has to be done to get it to compile on windows, I'll contact you if I know more ;) - Nov 19 2007

How did you install it? Through the kcontrol module or manually? Because kcontrol has a nasty bug with links in tar files. - Oct 19 2007

kwin dropshadow patch for kde 3.5.7

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by dunkelstern 3 comments

That's the thing why you'll need real composite to do that.

These shadows work by creating an extra window that contains a screenshot over which the shadow is drawn. But you can't do screenshots of things that are hidden normally. Here comes composite to work, with it you can get the contents of the hidden parts and do a "screenshot" of exactly that to render shadows.

This one is thought for computers where composite won't work because of slowness or crappy drivers. So if you have a decent PC use the kcompmgr shadows that are already included with kde. - Jun 04 2007

logout dialog theme support and config tool

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by cjacker 18 comments

Hi!

The KCM config module was really crapped!
I finally fixed it, if you want to use the thing really just get the patch here:

http://dunkelstern.no-ip.org/arch/ksmtheme-fix.patch

You don't have to be root now (that was hillarious because it didn't work even as root) and that dang thing doesn't crash anymore. Theme installing works also.

And this one if you're on the current KDE:

http://dunkelstern.no-ip.org/arch/kdebase-3.5.7-add-ksmserver-theme-support.patch

(That one worked quite good :) ) - Jun 01 2007

Kopete Emoticons Manager

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by LeeSieLung 93 comments

Well i traced it down a little bit further.

Seems to be a Makefile issue.

ltmain.sh doesn't generate a emoticonseditdialog.lo and it doesn't compile emoticonseditdialog.cpp, so the symbol is missing afterwards while linking.

But I don't know how to fix it as I am no automake/libtool professional. - May 26 2007

No, thats not the best option. I think I'll make it the KDE way: Let the user configure it :)

Somewhere below a KControl patch was suggested. If that person is so kind to send me his patch then I'll include it and extend it for setting the animation speed. - Mar 12 2007

Your Problem Elv is not connected to my patch but to the libart_lgpl package.

The programmer of libart made a mistake and it'll not build currently.

Either up- or downgrade libart, that should fix the issue (if you don't want to do that search the kde mailing lists for a patch. There is one but I don't know the URL though) - Mar 08 2007

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by dunkelstern 56 comments

Ok I'll do that. That was because it's likely that the speed of the effect is connected to cpu/graphics speed a little bit. And as I have a very fast cpu and enjoy the effect, so it may be a little slow to others...

I think I'll make that configurable in future. - Mar 08 2007

Currently you can only turn it on or off completely by setting VisualActivate in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals to one or zero.

Of course you may take the splitted patch and not apply the kicker patches :) - Mar 08 2007

For which distro?!? There are many incompatible ones based on RPM.

As I was informed KUbuntu Feisty Fawn has already adapted this patch. So I'm waiting for the SuSE guys to catch up now *g*.

I have no RPM based Distro installed right now so I can not help you with packages currently. Sorry. - Feb 26 2007

Desktop Text Config

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Maxilys 43 comments

See a patch for this:
http://dunkelstern.no-ip.org/patches/desktopext-config-0.3-hidden-visibility.patch.bz2

It's because of some KDE and QT Versions are compiled with hidden visibility.

The patch removes just one linker flag: -Wl,--no-undefined that breaks the build here. (Hidden Visibility is undefined for gcc in this case, because it's not in the source but in a shared lib) - Feb 14 2007

I knew that this question will pop up.

I have to diappoint you, it's a wild mix of different Themes. Some Icons from "Realistik", "Human", "Crystal Clear", "Vista Inspirate", Nuvoext", "OSX" and "Tango"

I think a quite similar look you get with installing "KDE Crystal Diamond 2.5 - Classical Mod" but don't ask me where to find it. - Feb 13 2007

That depends how this will be implemented in KDE 4, in KDE 3 it's just the image you can see on screen but scaled.

If icons are no more pixmaps but vector objects it will be possible to recalculate the pixmap for each zooming step, but i doubt that's worth it because it eats CPU time. - Feb 10 2007

What was the problem with gcursor? Was it the fault of this package?

I ask because my KDE 3.5 has some problems with links in cursor archives. If you install via kcontrol it unpacks the package but doesn't create the links correctly.

The "ball" should apparently visualize a world globe... perhaps i should improve that. Thanks for your comment. - Dec 15 2005

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by moodwrod 244 comments

I compiled and installed it on my debian Sid here. Tested with KDE versions 3.3.2 (debian sarge) and 3.4.2 (new in sid), now i compiled the 3.5 alpha and everywhere the same bug: Before the images fade in there is an ugly black square around it, i think that was not the intention of the standard theme, was it? It is not faded from background color to picture, but from black. What's wrong? Am i missing something? BTW: I am using the AMD64 Version of Debian, I tested both the 0.4.1 and 0.4.2 versions and even other themes like "circular tux". - Aug 29 2005

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by dunkelstern 7 comments

Did you use some kind of vector (svg) image for your wallpaper ?

Where did you get it from ?

(i used a 128x128 png upsampled to 200x200, so it's a bit unsharp)

it would give the splash a sharper look if i could get the vector thingie...
