Faenza icon theme for Kde4

Full Icon Themes by santgio72 62 comments

Just installed. Very nice Icon Theme. Question: After installing via System Settings > Application Appearance > Icons > Get New Themes... (running Kubuntu 10.04, KDE 4.5.1), there are two Faenza themes: Faenza-Dark and Faenza. Only Faenza appears to have any icons. At least, when I click on Faenza-Dark, no example icons are displayed, and selecting and applying it shows no difference from the Faenza theme. Were/are you going to be creating a Faenza-Dark Icon Theme as well? - Sep 26 2010

Amarok

Audioplayers by amarok 574 comments

Well, regardless, when playing an audio CD, the album cover art isn't displayed -and it should be. That it isn't, tells me that Amarok isn't programmed to look for the album art on the audio CD. - Sep 21 2010
Amarok

Audioplayers by amarok 574 comments

Kubuntu 10.04 32-bit, KDE 4.5.1.
Amarok 2.3.1 at the moment.

Amarok still won't recognize an audio CD unless Amarok is launched via the Device Notifier. If you start Amarok first, and insert an audio CD, it isn't listed when clicking on Local Music.

And Amarok still crashes playing an audio CD, the latest attempt here was using Random Tracks. Played the first two tracks, and crashed part way through the third. The random track selection worked.

I still dislike having to sign up for a last.fm account just so I can see my cover art. It was not this way in the 1.4 version, and I've never understood why the art can't be retrieved from the audio CD - it is there. - Sep 20 2010

luckyBackup

System Software by luckyb 244 comments

This is a Linux application, and a very nice one - thank you for your efforts.

But why are you using some Windows terminology in the dialogs?

Sync directory A:
Sync directory B:

Backup operations deal with source and destination

I would rather see:

Sync source:
Sync destination:

The use of drive letters is a Windows convention.

This is of course, just a cosmetic issue, but... - Sep 12 2010

Plasma Color Schemes by zvonSully 7 comments

The background of a particular forum window in Kubuntuforums.net is all black with the windows text being black. That of course, is not good. In this case, the themes window background color is overriding the sites color scheme. Anyway to override and/or correct this? I can send screen shots of the problem if you need.

Otherwise, an outstanding color scheme! - Mar 17 2010

Tragedy 2.01 fixes the issues in KDE 4.4.1. I'm one happy camper!! Thank you so much for getting this figured out. I'm now happily using Tragedy as my Desktop Theme along with the Tragedy Windows Decorations. Lancelot displays as it should. It all just works.

Kudos! Another dark theme that looks great. Now I'm not sure which I like better - Tragedy or Ghost. - Mar 06 2010
Tragedy

Plasma Themes by jmtodaro 89 comments

This is still an issue. The typed text is nearly invisible. I've just installed your Ghost Desktop Theme, and Lancelot has the same issue with this theme - the typed text in the search bar is nearly invisible.

If you can isolate this and find out what system setting is conflicting with Lancelot's color control settings, I would be very grateful. - Mar 06 2010
Tragedy

Plasma Themes by jmtodaro 89 comments

I really love this theme, however, using it under KDE 4.4.0, Lancelot (plasma-widget-lancelot) doesn't display the menu entries text until you hover your mouse over the item. This did not happen pre-KDE 4.4.0 (KDE 4.3.5) and doesn't happen with the Oxygen Theme.

Is this something that you can fix? It would be an absolute shame if I have to dump Tragedy due to this. - Feb 12 2010

Root Actions Servicemenu

Dolphin Service Menus by kubicle 227 comments

Kubuntu Jaunty 9.04 KDE 4.3.2

Just installed this most wonder service menu - again. It's been awhile, and I haven't had in Intrepid or Jaunty. Opted to keep the default 'dolphin' as the file manager with the Root Actions. Works great (did I expect otherwise?).

The suggested path for installation of the 'two' files is still incorrect in your README and on this site. It 'might' still be valid if anyone still has an upgraded KDE 3 to KDE 4 system, where both, a .kde and a .kde4 folder existed in the users /Home. But if a 'clean' installation of a current OS release utilizing KDE 4, then it is just .kde that exists in the users /Home.

Thanks again for a truly exceptional addition to the community. - Nov 08 2009

GRUB Themes by snowhog 7 comments

Assuming you haven't figured this out yet...

As root, create a directory under /boot/grub (I called mine splashimages)

As root, copy the *.gz file to this directory.

As root, edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.

Add the following entry (I put it below default 0 and above ## timeout sec):

# splashimage
splashimage=(hdx,y)/boot/grub/splashimages/watch.xpm.gz

Note: Replace x and y in (hdx,y) in the above line with the numbers you see in the # groot=(hdx,y) entry) - Mar 21 2009

Root Actions Servicemenu

Dolphin Service Menus by kubicle 227 comments

Okay, confirmed. I renamed the .kde4 folder and restarted my system. Logged into KDM without any problems. Desktop loaded normally. Konqueror started correctly. Check my user directory, and there was no newly created .kde4 folder. So that folder was 'left over' from my HH KDE 4.1.2 system.

Therefore, one has to copy the 10-rootactionsfolders.desktop 11-rootactionsfiles.desktop files to .kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus if you want Root Actions Service Menu to be available for use. - Nov 02 2008
Root Actions Servicemenu

Dolphin Service Menus by kubicle 227 comments

I've got the Root Actions working. I had to copy ~/Root_Actions_2.4/dolphin-KDE4/* to:

~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus

instead of to:

~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus

While Intrepid Ibex is KDE 4 only, I have a .kde and a .kde4 directory.

I had upgraded to II from HH running KDE 4.1.2, which it self was upgraded from KDE 3.5.x. - Nov 02 2008
