The dials are png images, but the Karamba rotate (which is just calling the QT rotate) isn't doing any antialiasing. If QT allows for something like that, than it'd very easy to implement in SuperKaramba, but I don't think it does. - May 31 2004

This is the Aqua iconset (based on OS X) and it's been posted on kdelook by noonespecial, but I think it's not available here anymore. I've replaced some icons and added more icons to it though. Maybe I'll post it on kdelook, but I'm not sure if there are any copyright issues with it or not (anyways, the Apple symbols have been removed from most or all icons). You can get it here:

I don't think so, I've switched to another KDE style (plastik) and kwrite is still drawing the vertical slider. Give it a try, and if you think it's a Baghira bug please send a bug report to Thomas, the Baghira author, he'll fix it :) - May 22 2004
I'm not sure, but I think it depends on how the different KDE apps have been coded, the theme doesn't control that behaviour as far as I know. - May 20 2004
You should be able to get the rounded push buttons if that's what you mean, just play with the configuration options for Baghira in the KDE Control Center. For the window decoration try this Mandrake 10 rpm: - May 13 2004
First you have to enable this theme under KDE Control Center/Style, then you can customize it under Baghira. - Mar 07 2004
I've included the SRPM for KDE 3.2 or Mdk 10, and I'll release a binary rpm for it soon. To build a binary rpm, first make sure you have all the needed development packages installed (qt, kde, etc) and then run:

rpm --rebuild source_rpm

Your binary rpm package should be in /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586 if everything goes well. - Mar 05 2004
This rpm hasn't been tested with KDE 3.2, although Baghira should work with 3.2 it might need a recompile or maybe some other Mandrake specific fixes. I could post the source rpm (srpm) on and you could compile your own binary rpm if you want to, until KDE 3.2 and Mandrake 10.0 are officially released. - Feb 03 2004
That's probably kicker configured to stay on top of the screen with a small size. Just keep playing with the kicker configuration until you get what you want :) - Jan 04 2004
It's moved to now, you shouldn't have any problens downloading :) - Jan 04 2004
One more thing, you have to go to style, not theme manager, in the kde conrol center. - Dec 05 2003
Try running update-menus from the console, then restart the kde control center, it should show up there. - Dec 05 2003
The window decoration in the screenshot is not part of the rpm or the style, but you can find it here:

The screenshot was actually taken by the author of the style, I just used it for my rpm upload. - Dec 04 2003

I'm building and hosting the Mandrake rpms. Can you please tell me how it fails, can it resolve the hostname or it just doesn't connect? I'm not aware of any issues so far. Thanks. - Apr 22 2004
I was able to load my own background images by placing them in this directory:


Or you can have many bar themes in that directory and just link the one you wanna use to default.

Hope this helps. - Mar 19 2004
Yes, can you please explain what you like about it? :) - Feb 28 2004
Yes, I do have 2.1 but I made some changes to it, not to the parabolic zoom though. Drop me an email and I'll send it to you. - Feb 27 2004
Yep, I got the same thing on KDE 3.1.5. It looks like it doesn't compile anymore on KDE 3.1. Maybe the author wants to backport this version, or else I'll upgrade to KDE 3.2 :) - Feb 26 2004

I'll probably release it at some point, but the code has to be cleaned up, it's just a quick hack right now. And this old version of KSmoothDock is not very stable, it's crasing when resizing the dock. That's one of the reasons why the original author removed the parabolic zooming from KSmoothDock. I'll post the source code on when I'll have some time to clean it up :) - Nov 04 2003
It's KSmoothDock 2.1 with some modifications, that version still had parabolic icon zooming and I like it better. - Oct 30 2003
I've added two more versions, one with square top corners and one with lighter coloured buttons. I guess you wanted something like the second version :) - Oct 26 2003

Great skin. I just have one small suggestion, I think you should get rid of the Apple logos and replace them with something else, just to avoid any potential problems with Apple. Very good work, thanks. - Oct 18 2003

Those are probably OS X icons converted for KDE. You could do it yourself if you wanna take the time to do it, just go to some websites for OS X icons, like, download the ones you like, then convert them to png and rename them for KDE. There's a program called icns2png, I think it's available on somewhere. You'll also need unstuff to extract the files from the sit archives. Or ThEOnE could create an icon theme and release it, to spare you the trouble :) - Oct 12 2003

The circle is an imap mail checker, just a small Karamba theme. I made it myself, and I got the icon from an OS X icon website, but I don't remember exactly from where. I wanna port it to SuperKaramba and use python instead of perl, and I'll probably post it here when it's ready. - Sep 22 2003
