CoreMoid

Plasma 4 Extensions by GermanTux83 35 comments

It works great.

I too noticed that CoreMoid takes up a lot of space in the panel. There should be no need to implement vertical bars, as long as CoreMoid keeps its width under control.

On another note, what about optionally including CPU-temperatures (for each core through K8Temp on AMD64, for example)? - Feb 10 2008

Klearlook

KDE 3.5 Themes by p3001ee 58 comments

In the configuration dialog, I have to set the 'Menubar and toolbar border level' to 'Dark' in order to get no border, so I guess the options 'Dark' and 'None' are switched.

Apart from that: I like the style very much! (And it fits very well with my Firefox and Thunderbird that use the default Gtk2 look with Clearlooks.) - Nov 26 2005

Baghira

KDE 3.5 Themes by thomas12777 1262 comments

After installing the latest gentoo baghira-ebuild, I can now happily run the Kde-enabled version of Ximian OpenOffice.org under baghira. Wonderful! But... The OpenOffice.org menus are all blue now, whereas the rest of the user interface appears in the familiar colors (my menus are a very light gray, with stripes, of course).

I've the Aqua Blue color scheme and tried to play with some of the baghira settings (e.g. menu color), without effect.

Who knows how to tweak the settings to get a proper baghira look? - Oct 08 2004

I couldn't care less that your initials are NG and that you used this nick ever since who-knows-what, but the fact remains that you chose this nick because of the name and reputation of the Nazi doctor. You should read some books about the Holocaust and maybe then you'll understand not only that the use of this name offends people, but also that you would not want to associate yourself with him and what he stood for. Or so I hope. - Sep 23 2004

Theme Idea from GNOME Community

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zammi 21 comments

The user experiences of the pre-versions of x.org R6.8 are encouraging, to say the least, even if real transparency may not be 100% complete/reliable in the upcoming release. And then, of course, it has to be integrated into Kde. Gnome certainly seems to be a bit further in integrating the new technology into its desktop (Metacity is already capable of exploiting real transparency.)

Considering the demand for 'fake transparency' in Kde, the real thing will be very popular. And for the people who'll hate it: it will be an option, just like color settings and the like. - Sep 06 2004

I've installed the new 0.5 version using the gentoo ebuild, but the control center modules are still the same as the latest 0.4 version (including the version number in the about window). I can hardly believe that so much changed while the configuration windows remained unchanged...

And I know 0.5 is really installed, because the brushed metal looked has changed to the new look.

Baghira

KDE 3.5 Themes by thomas12777 1262 comments

The only thing still bothering me about Baghira (if I may say so) is the window decoration, which seems to 'forget' to draw the comic frame at the two sides of the titlebar (brushed style). Since the tooltip in the control module warns about this, I assume this is a feature, not a bug. Could you explain why this must be like this? I would rather have the comic frame extending to the top of the window decoration.

I hope you understand what I'm pointing at; if not, I'll provide a screenshot.

Operations Monitor

Karamba & Superkaramba by philr 6 comments

I have the same problems with lm_sensors. Did you check if the 'raw' sensor values are to be found in /sys (for 2.6 kernels with sysfs, otherwise in /proc)? My MoBo-temperature, for example, is to be found in /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002d/temp1_input. Possibly, you have to do some arithmatic to get the proper values (compare with the values your BIOS gives you and look around in the lm_sensors files). In my case, this turned out to be rather simple. I use the program sensor to extract the values and awk to do the calculations.

This results in the following lines in my Karamba theme:

text x=0 y=25 value="M/B:"
text x=140 y=25 sensor=program program="echo `awk ' { print int($0 / 1000 ) } ' /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002d/temp1_input` °C" align="right" interval=10000
text x=0 y=45 value="CPU:"
text x=140 y=45 sensor=program program="echo `awk ' { print int($0 / 500 ) } ' /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002d/temp2_input` °C" align="right" interval=10000
text x=0 y=65 value="Fan:"
text x=140 y=65 sensor=program program="echo `cat /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-002d/fan2_input` rpm" align="right" interval=10000

Baghira

KDE 3.5 Themes by thomas12777 1262 comments

two things:

(1) When I go to Kicker and choose 'Panel Menu > Help > About Kde Panel', I get the wrong style (Baghira, but stippled, not brushed; other settings also unlike my default). Other About-dialogs are okay.

(2) I have the option 'Draw Comic Frame' enabled for the window decoration, but I can see no border around my windows. This makes popup dialogs indistinguishable from their parents, for example.

Am I too critical? - Jul 04 2004
[Gentoo - Ebuild] KDE Color Schemes

KDE 3 Color Schemes by chtof 42 comments

Would it not be possible to get the color schemes in portage by including them in the kdeartwork-ebuild? The drawback is that you won't be able to maintain it all by yourself, but it will be in the official portage tree and everyone will be able to profit from your work.

Just a thought. - Apr 10 2004
Seti_Sys_4_karamba

Karamba & Superkaramba by brunoldi 31 comments

I noticed that you entered some of your system info as clear text. Why not use the 'program'-sensor for this? Then you will never have to edit this again.

My theme, e.g., has:

text x=0 y=0 sensor=program program="whoami" fontsize=12
text x=0 y=16 sensor=program program="uname -o" fontsize=12
text x=0 y=32 sensor=program program="uname -r" fontsize=12
text x=0 y=48 sensor=program program="X -version 2>&1 | grep 'XFree86 Version'" fontsize=12
text x=0 y=64 sensor=program program="kde-config --version | grep Qt" fontsize=12
text x=0 y=80 sensor=program program="kde-config --version | grep KDE" fontsize=12

I'm sure this can be finetuned somewhat further. - Mar 09 2004

Well, how to explain this:

All my kcm-libraries seem to be in /usr/lib/kde3 and they work okay.

And restarting Kde doesn't work either. I have had this with every version of Baghira I compiled & installed.

And I am sure the kcm_kcmbaghira.* files in /usr/lib/kde3 are the most recent versions. - Dec 07 2003

Baghira works and looks really fine, but... there is no control center module here.
Baghira has been compiled and installed without problems, and the kcm_kcmbaghira.so and .la files seem to be in the proper directory (/usr/lib/kde3 on my Mandrake 9.1 system), just like the kcmbaghira.desktop file (/usr/share/applnk/Settings/LookNFeel).
I had no luck trying to load the module by hand through kcmshell.

Any suggestions anyone? - Dec 03 2003

KFiresaver used to run fine on Mandrake 8.2 (with Kde 3.0) here, but now I have switched to Mandrake 9.0 and it doesn't work any more...

I can configure, make and install without any errors. By default, it installs in /usr/local/kde (but my problems persist when I try to install elsewhere).

When I run KFiresaver from the command-line, I get an error message that the 'image-particle file' could not be read and the graphics appear all 'blocky'...

I guess KFiresaver can't find the data-files it installed in /usr/local/kde/share/apps/kfiresaver.

Why doesn't KFiresaver show up in my KDE ScreenSaver control panel? I compiled and installed it without any problems. It works too, because I can run it from the commandline. And the setup works like a charm too.
I run Mandrake 8.2 with Kde 3.0 (in /opt/kde3). It seems to me that the .desktop file is installed in the correct path (/opt/kde3/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers). - Sep 22 2002
