I guess you didn't even read the description... it IS unique: it doesn't draw any ugly windows outline.

you can read the description to understand what's written on the flyer.

anyway here it goes:

as for the old OT@kde-look thing... this is just freedom of expression. vote it down, that's what you can do. personally i'm using this as my wallpaper right now - May 25 2006

klik

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by probono 40 comments

klik is great.

It's working even on my gentoo, i've run realplayer, lphoto and a bunch of other apps by simply clicking on a link!

I'm recommending it to everybody and really hope all the ideas to improve it come true... a .app appfile that integrates with my desktop would be just too cool

Seriously, there's no single reason i can find not to love this project :-) - Dec 04 2005
Polyester

KDE 3.5 Themes by mart 395 comments

this is a nice theme, but what i'd like to see is better spacing in menus and uncoloured scrollbars!

all plastik-like themes share the same tiny/shy plastik vertical spacing for menu items...

i'd like something more "breathing", just adding 5 more pixels vertically could be a start...

"make it big!"

PS: this is my new default right now, but for a reference you can have a look at the QtCurve style, you find it in this site :) - Nov 30 2005

Very Silent feature in KDE 3.5

KDE Plasma Screenshots by zammi 18 comments

I also noticed the "only apply to window border" option. Very nice but still a little buggy. I can't get to properly work the name in the Kmenu applet instead... file should be .kde/share/config/kickerrc The only similar section to that described in the post is: [menus], and i added these lines: [menus] ShowText=true Text=Menu Sadly, it doesn't work, anybody a clue? - Sep 27 2005

GTK2 Themes by w-Tarchalski 73 comments

very nice idea... didn't realize how much this is cool until I installed it. I especially like the gtk theme although quite slow, I used it with my own metacity theme (Compocity).

The concept could use some minor refinements and when gtk/cairo is ready... be non-pixmaps/antialiased/opengl-accelerated! that would be cool :)

kudos, I'll vote "good" - Sep 17 2005

just a question... apart from xfwm4, is that a stock 3.3.2 kde? or did you add custom applets (task bar)?

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by mangar 9 comments

NOTE: i agree with almost everything you posted.

my take:

* i'd avoid saying "i'm copying firefox/macosx/gnome/whatever because they are cool": not everybody likes baghira and similar aqua rip-off's (i don't). in fact KDE should avoid drawing too much inspiration from other OS's/DE's at all.

* this is not a site for bug reports (and i do agree those are bugs) - Jan 05 2005
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

andrunko, many thanks! you suggestion helped a lot.

for those of you using the kalyxo deb's:

once you apt-get install kde-improvement you have another step to follow:
just manually download && install those packages from
http://www.deadhand.com/kalyxo/ :

libqt3c102_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb
libqt3c102-mt_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb
libqt3-compat-headers_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb
libqt3-headers_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb
libqt3-mt-dev_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb
qt3-dev-tools_3.3.3-5+kalyxo0_i386.deb

they have a slightly minor version number than sid's official packages, so they are skipped by apt and not installed. once you grab them and install by a simple `dpkg -i *.deb` you can restart kde and enjoy the new
rubberband ;-)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

andrunko, i posted this early in response to melenas, here's a shot showing what happens on my box:
http://pollycoke.org/linux-help/gente/felipe/kde-improvementsbug.png

the problem also happens in konqueror's icon view window, but NOT in detailed, list or text view

any suggestion? enabling GUI Effects as suggested elsewhere didn't work.

felipe - Nov 27 2004
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

before i test it again enabling that "GUI Effects" option: what does this should disable? just the rubberband effect or other improv.'s as well?

and by the way: there's a very simple hack to avoid those nasty lines in plastik windows' statusbar, you can find it here:

http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=17363

i'll report it here the suggestion from daywalker636:
---------------------
search for this in plastik.cpp:

case PE_StatusBarSection: {
renderContour(p, r, cg.background(), cg.background().dark(160), Draw_Left|Draw_Right|Draw_Top|Draw_Bottom);
break;
}

comment out the 2 lines. This should remove the frames in the status bars.
---------------------

is there a possibility to have it included in the improved deb's? or a way to grab kalixo plastik's modified sources to compile them myself? better yet: andrunko, any chance you'll include that into your improvements?

thanks everybody

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Dgege 165 comments

i don't like the new hiding button icon, but i dislike the old textual one as well.

here's my proposal for it, it's just a simple png anyone can do, and that's what i'm using right now:

http://www.pollycoke.org/linux-help/gente/felipe/systray2-button.png

i guess everybody agree on one thing: 16x16 icons for kicker almost always look ugly, i'm thinking of an all-black 16x16 iconset...
