I cannot get this to work. Having the same problems as others. Please upgrade this project - and Acqua Graphite too - because this looks great! Good job! - Apr 20 2004

Your other themes/styles (acqua, acqua graphite) don't work. I didn't try this one, but, I doubt it works either - since the authors are the same. - Apr 20 2004
kde3 xp style

KDE 3.5 Themes by speleoalex 265 comments

My Linux box cries everytime it has to display something like this. Nobody in their right mind stays with a theme/style like this. Stop wasting your time creating butt-ugly themes and channel all that energy into saving your money and buying WindowsXP - seems like you love it so.

The intelligent folks will stay with Linux. - Apr 19 2004

This reminds me of WindowsXP. I gave up WindowsXP last year due to finding a much better, faster, and more stable OS that blows all Microsoft OS's away... I found Linux. If you want your box to look like WindowsXP, go buy that *toy* made by Bill and co. in Redmond, and, shame on you for wasting your time and resources to make something this bloody ugly.

Developers Apps by lane 6 comments

This can be done in Kjots, and possibly, Treeline, Tuxcards, Notebook Manager, etc. If you don't mind a little bit more writing. I use Kjots as a code snippet library, and it works just fine. - Apr 16 2004

Great job! Now, can you make one for Mandrake? 1024X768 would be my preference I thought I'd ask, since everyone else is putting in their requests. You could make one for each distro and in different resolutions and package them all into one tarball. That would be great because I am using Mandrake and Fedora Core on this computer, and SuSe on another.

Slackware Splash Screen

I don't use Slackware, but, this is a nice splash screen. I need to download this in case I ever do install Slackware.

Great job! - Apr 14 2004
Edit as Root

Dolphin Service Menus by gammaknife 44 comments

There is no way for a normal user to become "root" on my system - my system does not have the sudo/su commands. Nor is there any way for a normal user to travers or view files/directories outside their home directory. Logging in as root requires a username, password AND PIN - the password and PIN are kept seperate by two different individuals. This is because, in normal Linux distros, the superuser password can be piped/spoofed from any other computer connected to the network, or the internet, when the password is entered. One just needs to know what to look and listen for - I thought everyone knew how to do this. Linux is already too easy to hack and "conveniences" make it even easier. One should not be allowed to login to the root account while any connected system or device is connected to any untrusted system.

I may be paranoid, but I'll never be hacked. - Apr 13 2004
Edit as Root

Dolphin Service Menus by gammaknife 44 comments

Linux is awesome, it's great, it's secure, it's stable...it's a much better OS than Window$. But, I don't feel that will last for long if people continue to implement insecure practises, such as "open as root", "run as root", etc. Are these "...as root" really needed? Have we become that lazy? If we continue to do things the "fast and convenient" way, we may forget how to do certain things the "correct" way. Laziness was the fownfall of Microsoft, I do hope it won't be the same for Linux.

Anyone who does not agree should keep in mind that this is being posted in the interests of Free Speech and is just my 2 cents worth.

Thank you. - Apr 13 2004
BasKet Note Pads

Utilities by kelvie 347 comments

This is a very nice app. I use it for almost everything! I set a tab up as a Launcher, another for URL's, another for files, another for text, etc. I don't even need to access the KMenu or utilize cut-and-paste anymore. There is almost no end to what you can do with this.

Thanks for a great app! - Mar 30 2004

Linux XP Professional

Wallpaper Other by ftranschel 7 comments

Please do not use the phrase "XP" to describe Linux. It is a rather large insult to the entire Unix/Linux world. You can use "XP" to describe that toy made and distributed by Bills' company, but, please have more respect for a real operating system:) - Mar 20 2004

Groupware by Bert 7 comments

OK, I was informed about the kde-config command and learned how to find out where my KDE is installed. That is exactly what I was trying to learn. Thank you everyone who helped me with this - especially Chris. - Mar 18 2004
KickPIM

Groupware by Bert 7 comments

And, I would love to have it.
But, I downloaded it, ran ./configure (all went well), make (all went well), then make install (install went well), and cannot find it in the kicker panel Add->Applet list. Probably because I didn't ./configure it with /my/KDE/dir. Excuse me for being a newbie, but, I don't know where my KDE dir is (where KDE is installed).
Can anyone tell me how to find this out. I did a search for KDE and found several KDE and KDE3 directories on my Red Hat Linux Fedora Core 1 box. Which one should I use. Is there a terminal command I can run to find out where /my/KDE/dir is? Is there a specific app in my KDE directory that is no where else on my system letting me know that is the correct directory where KDE is installed?

Please help a Linux newbie. Thank you. - Mar 17 2004

iTunes style for KDE

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by ThEOnE 23 comments

This is a great style! Thank you for creating it. The only thing I have found wrong is when you right click a taskbar button for an open window, the popup list has a few menu items that are in a bold font. When I put my cursor over one of the bold items, the text seems to blend into the highlight so that it isn't readable. But it returns to a readable font when I move the cursor off that menu item. It really isn't a problem, just thought I would let you know in case you are a perfectionist like me ;)
Anyroad, it is one of the best styles I have seen on this site. Good work! - Mar 14 2004
