Kopete

Chat & Messenging by mattr 100 comments

Is there a way to send messages without having to do ctrl+enter? I find this highly annoying. It really gets to me after awhile. Kopete is a great client and it really does do everything I want from an IM client, but until I can just hit enter to send a message, I have to keep using Gaim. :\ - Jan 06 2004

KDE 3.5 Themes by thomas12777 1262 comments

This is, without a doubt, the best theme I've ever used for not just KDE, but ANY WM I've ever used. This theme is so complete and well done it borders on the rediculous. Its even got its own control panel. Nuts! Even better, its aware of color schemes. This means you can theme the theme! Absolutely brilliant.

The new animations are pretty slick too. Excellent work on this one. - Dec 21 2003

How exactly did you copyright your images? Just putting "Copyrighted by " doesn't mean its legally copyrighted. I'm not saying its moral or ethical to take/use other peoples work, but people who do this so-called 'digital artwork' who then slap copyright notices all over their images/web sites don't actually have legal recourse.

On top of that, using copyrighted work without permission is NOT theft. There is a legal distinction between theft and copyright violation. The only legal recourse you have, provided you actually have a valid copyright, is to sue to get someone to stop using it and/or for the direct damages caused to you by them using it. Of which, I highly doubt there has been any.

In short: Quit you whining and don't bother slapping fake copyright notices on your images.

Good day. ^_^ - Nov 30 2003

KDE Plasma Screenshots by lurid 4 comments

Both the background and the icon set are from deviantart. That site is horribly slow at all times, so forgive me for not giving a link. Just take a look through the OSX wallpapers and the Windows icons and you should find both. As for the bar, thats the improved Tuxbar with smooth scaling and the replacement iconset.

The iTunes is a project I'm working on. I'll post it here when I'm done with it and its fully functional. It makes me drool though. :D - Nov 20 2003
Blue Milk !!!

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by ThEOnE 2 comments

I love this theme. The colors are perfect. Its got a Mac-ish style to it, but finally people are starting to get away from the 'blue bubbles' that seem to have plagued the Linux theming community.

I've been using Linux for awhile now but I just switched over from Gnome (which I'd been using for years) and so I'm basically a newbie with KDE. The error I'm getting is with the 'install.sh' script.

1 - Looking for KDE home directories (this may take quite a while!)
2 - Copying files ..... Done!
3 - Announce style
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
4 - Blue-Milk style and IceWM window decoration installation completed.

No idea what that means. Also, the colors show up fine (I love them!) and the vertical scroll bar is fine, but the horizontal one is totally messed up and the colors don't apply to the menu bar.

Any help with this would be great because, again, I think this theme is fantastic. - Nov 11 2003
