My Workspace

KDE Plasma Screenshots by Louis 2 comments

Thanx for your comment, you are right, its a very practical desktop.
Today I wrote a small app, which allows the user to change to another desktop and shows the new desktop-info and number on the screen.
What means, it does not have to be included on the wallpaper anymore.
I will post a screenshot soon:-)

Another XGL/Compiz screenshot

KDE Plasma Screenshots by leandro 6 comments

Hi, thanks a lot for your quick return:-))
I installed the rpm`s.
But if I change to another win-decoration I dont see any change immediately.
At the next login, sometimes the decoration changes.
Anyway XGL/Compiz rules!!!!

Many greetings

KDE 3.3 Question????

KDE Plasma Screenshots by Louis 4 comments

Thank you so much for your help!
It works but,if somebody has the same problem,you have to remove or rename the old .kdetest or whatever is your kde-directory first.
When you log in kde next time you have to change to another style(already with the wizzard!!!!!).
Everthing looks great after you do this trick.
I use plastik now.

I compilled Baghira, but after I changed to it the same strange thing happened.
So I want to figure out a way to use another style or window decoration without having those stupid "????!!!!!"
If anybody else has an idea,it would be great!!!!!

Thanks a lot for your quick comment!
That is also my opinion but I was to tired last night to make the update.
But I will do it now:)
If I have time I will create my own Tux-icons for the splash.
Here comes my update but I will still work on it.

Was realy the best choice, that you start with Linux now.
But you should put a screenshot!
And anyway there is nothing to download
or the file is broken.
Please figure out:)
Have fun with your new experience!

P.S.: How is the Mandrake beta( if you have time write me an e-mail.My favorite Mandrake is 9.0)

Angry Dragon

Wallpaper Other by Louis 3 comments

My wallpaper is not a Yu-Gi-Oh card.
I modified the "petit dragon" with Gimp, because
my kids like that dragon, and I made it also angry (fire).
If you want to see the original which
is very different I can send you an e-mail. - Aug 16 2003
Linux Aqua 2.Version

Wallpaper Other by Louis 3 comments

Why should it be a L or whatever letter?
Is the letter X not included in Linux
or Unix or Xfree etc. ?
I like the "X", may be because it is the
symbol of a cross. Why do we have to think about Mac if we see a "X"?
Are we not more openminded?
Should we not forget all of those
Does a nice green landscap with blue
sky and white clouds (or a full moon) mean Win XP ?
In my opinion it´s not good to go on with such a thinking.
If we think like this we allow others
that even a simple "X" is not free anymore for everybody.
So one of my "leitmotifs" now is to make the "X" free.
Freedom for X or Xfree.
I hope there will be a discussion about this!

Glowing Pink K

Wallpaper Other by Louis 2 comments

Thank` s for your comment!
When I did the upload I did not have so
much time, so I made just a quick screenshot.
I am testing some stuff, so my desktop did not look so great.:)
Now I put only a preview.
I hope that some people may like it better now. - Jul 27 2003

I like the smooth blue color and the way
you put the "kde" logo!
Very nice!
It should not be necessary to ask for a
comment. It took your time to create the wallpaper and than post it for everybody, that`s "linux-thinking".
Lot`s of people just vote and we never
know why they vote bad or good, because they dont write any comments.
There is no way to learn anything.
Keep going with your work and linux-thinking!
