Ok, the above link should work again.

Enjoy the icons - Jul 27 2006
Ah yes...

I forgot, that setting a PW on my homepage will have an influence on these files, too. I'll look into that this evening and post a reply, when the download is working again.

Bug resolved :-)

I finally accepted, that these name changes make no sense in a single icon theme...

cheers - Mar 09 2006
Yes, you're right. This is because of the name changes introduced.

It will be best if you select the superkaramba_mime icon in the file settings menu, instead of the superkaramba_theme (which is the original CrystalSVG one). Same holds for some more icons. I really got annoyed of the non-existing naming convention for the mimetype icons. So I changed everything with _doc _theme and so on to _mime.

cheers - Feb 22 2006
Your second point will also be solved next week. I forgot to change the name of the encrypted mime. If you don't want to wait 'til next week, you have to change the encryted.png to file_encrypted.png for every size of the icon set.

cheers - Feb 11 2006
Ups, I'll look into this. But not before Wednesday of next week. Should be a small missnaming in the index.theme. I changed the names, because I'm using a little modified version of the Crystal SVG icons myself (I'm planning to post this icon set, too. But it'll take some more time, 'til it's finished.)

If you change, the following entries in the ~/.kde/share/icons/consistent_crystalsvg_mimtypes/index.theme everythink should work as desired:


As mentioned above, i'll update the post it elf next week.

this really is a very nice KDM theme. But since i'm using a 16:10 monitor the debian stuff on the beackground got badly scaled. Perhaps you could provide the background image without the two debian logos?!

this is a great app especially since I'm right now struggling with KLaptop, which always shutsdown my laptop even though i'm not running that low on battery.

Do you plan to make it a replacement for the standard Kcontrol module for energy management? This would be really really great. Or don't you plan to make it Kcontrol module at all?

ups, meant that I was looking forward to the KDE-splash, of course... - Sep 17 2005
I like this KDM theme really very much. The only thing, that keeps me from using it, is that there is no matching KDE splash theme :-)

But two other things:

1. perhaps you could make the icons somewhat more consistent. I like each icon on its own very much, but all three icons seem not to fit together. Perhaps making them all the same size would do the trick...

2. I think the curves in the login image are somewhat too much. Perhaps it would look even better if you leave the frame for the login just plain.

Keep uo the could work!!

P.S.: I'm lookin' forward for the KDM-Theme ;-) - Sep 17 2005

Hi, from my point of view these are the best krusader icons within the contest so far.

But I especially like the 3d wallpaper. Perhaps you could make the icons look somewhat more raised (not so flat), too.

Blender mimetype Icons

First of all the blender icon looks to 3d'ish. Not meaning to offence you, but all other crystal icons (i suppose you made this icon as an extension of the crystal icon set) look more drawn than rendered. And for me, this is one of the things I like most with (??) the crystal icons.

Second and easier to fix: The font you used does not match the font of the other mimetype icons. It is a font with serifs and this is no good for captions and such things...

Cheers - Aug 22 2005
not that there is no need for such an icon, but this on does not fit with the look of the other crystal mimetype icons.

No, since you mentioned making gears would go beyond your design skills, I wanted to point you to the official kubuntu logo, which is available as SVG. And which you could take as a basis for this kbfx-button.

I.e. you could ungroup the official logo, take the blue "ubuntu-circle" with the gears in it and put it in your kbfx-button instead of your selfmade kubuntu logo. Of course you could also use the official lettering of the logo to make it look even more authentic...

I hope I expressed myself clearly this time.

regards - Aug 03 2005
Ups, meant official... - Aug 03 2005
I really like these kind of menu buttons. And would also really like to install it, but the style of the original menu is much nicer for me, than this kbfx stuff...

But a word to the gears. Why don't you take the official kubuntu logo (available here: and just use the gears?? No need to do it all by yourself :)

Why exactly does it do that?? I haven't seen any bookmark in the metabar plugin...

Personally I would think bookmarks are not important for this sidebarplugin, since there is already the default one...

cheers - Jul 28 2005
What exactly do you mean by "many"?? I think I got at least some bookmarks in the bookmarks-bar of Konqueror (Maybe round about 50-100). But you are right I use to manage them with subfolders...

Any ideas?


P.S.: I managed to get version 0.7 running again ;) So right now I'm pretty happy about this - Jul 18 2005
Thanks for the hint... looked already at but, oversaw the possibility to get other versions

My complain with version 0.8 is that it freezes the konqueror window I'm using it in. After enabling metabar, the respective window takes all CPU time it gets and keeps an doing nothing...

So I stay with version 0.7 :) - Jul 15 2005
Hi, since the actual version doesn't work for me (as I wrote before enabling it crashes the respective Konqueror window...) and the only older version available for me is 0.6, I'd like to have version 0.7 again, which I actually liked very much...

So is there someone around still having the 0.7 version source code handy??

regards - Jul 15 2005
Same for me... :(

Compiling wokrs fine, but when enabling it, or starting a konqueror profile with enabled metabar, this window freezes and takes 99% CPU-Time.

I'm running Kubuntu hoary with KDE 3.4.1...

cheers - Jul 14 2005
I know, that this was mentioned once before and just wanted to and a "me, too" but I can't find the original comment...

For my Kubuntu installation german umlauts in the actions for a given mime-type are not correctly displayed. Probably the wrong (only a standard) code page is used to display these entries...
Perhaps you could incoorporate the usage of the systems actual default codepage??

cheers - May 17 2005
So, what is the 0 in front of the dot trying to say to you???
This software is still under _development_ and - also it is buggi for shure - it is a great improvement of KDE.

So, if you don't like it, just don't install it. That there are problems with this software, can easily be seen by reading the comments. But quit posting such crap... - Apr 11 2005
I missed metabar 0.6 but I think as well that the current design is not as good as the old one (metabar 0.5)...

An option for choosing the design would be great. - Apr 05 2005

Just one more thing... To install this about-screen one does not need to extract the browser.jar in /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/chrome. It is adequate just to put the file there. Or even better, to rename the original one to something like browser-default.jar and this one to browser-debian.jar and to set a symlink named browser.jar to one of those...

cheers - Jul 26 2005
I always wondered where the images used in the about-screen are located...

Since I use the crystal icon for firefox I made my own png's, but thanks for pointing out how this works.

I think the iconset will be great. especially the mimetype icons look very pleasant. The other icons are somehow lacking some details, imho...

Would it be possible to get a copy of the mimetype SVGs, although the iconset is not released till now??

Actually although I'm running Kubuntu I switched to using KPackage. Kynaptic in m oppinion is not really usable since there are no progress outputs and - much more annoying - no error messages... - Jun 03 2005
to me this looks like a very nice frontend to the already existing package managers (e.g. apt with debian based distros).

But I think you're right. Kind of this programm is definitivly missing in KDE. Since I use Kubuntu there is already some graphical frontend to apt (Kynaptic) with "normal" Debian there is KPackage, but I think some kind of graphical upgrade would also enhance the usability of these programs...

nice idea!! - May 31 2005
