Very attractive design. But it should be pointed out that Valve is incredibly paranoid about its trademarks (they have, believe it or not, trademarked the lambda symbol).

This should probably be checked to make sure that it's legal to post. - Aug 04 2006
Enlightenment Wallpaper (detour-pre3)

I couldn't find any similarities between you and the Detour enlightenment theme author.

If you created this (and created Detour) please let us know. It's a wonderful theme and you should be congratulated. Otherwise, please stop stealing. - Apr 26 2006

Various KDE 1.-4. Styles by darkclown 6 comments

Please recategorize as "Theme-Manager Theme". This is not a "Theme/Style for ..."

In your case, "Keramik" is the "Theme/Style". A collection of a bunch of wallpapers, icons, styles, window decs, etc, is a "Theme-Manager Theme". - Jan 04 2006
HAX0R Original

Wallpaper Other by SLackerLX 2 comments

Although quite glad that you mentioned that there was "another source". But you might want to not call it "original" since it isn't. And, if there is any question about the source, please don't repost it. Regardless of how "nice" it looks, it is still tantamount to stealing.

This wallpaper in question, however, is jimmac's which means it's likely all right to repost. I've located it here:, although I'm sure it can be found elsewhere. It is often titled "hax0r (original from jimmac)". By just calling this "HAX0R Original" it looks like you're taking credit :) - Sep 12 2005

Let me guess... you took the SVG of the iPod that someone else had created, slapped it onto a blue background (that someone else had created) and yet NO WHERE do you give credit to the original authors.

And then we wonder why Linux is accused of stealing code. - Sep 02 2005

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by sone 8 comments

You are incorrect, Sone. TOD asked for permission from TSA, and he was granted it. Therefore, HE has the ability to use these icons. Not you. They are not tied to the splash screen (so your argument of "update" does not apply).

This is why so many companies distrust the Open Source community. Freedom does not mean anarchy. We still have laws and we must still abide by them. Don't make us look bad in TSA's eyes - if this continues, TSA may completely refuse to allow use of their property in the future. And then where would we be? Even those people, like TOD, that want to do things "correctly" would not be allowed to. - Aug 25 2005

It's a nipple.

Please read the terms of service for this site. I do appreciate "serious" photography, but this site has had problems in the past with a bunch of horny nerds running around claiming "art" when there's no "redeeming" value (often the determination between "art" and "porn"). Unfortunately they've had to draw a strict line when it comes to this stuff. - Jul 26 2005
Simply Metabar Theme

Various Stuff by Voytaz 1 comment

I like the "less decorative" yet "still colorful" designs. This one is perfect - subtle and useful.

I don't know if it's documented anywhere, but you can also install the files into "~/.kde/share/apps/metabar/html". Putting them in the global kde directory will change it cross system. Putting it into your user kde directory (~/.kde/) allows each user to have their own styles. - Jul 20 2005

Sie sollen meine Deutsch lesen. Ihre Englisch is sehr gut!

Viele andere Leute haben dieselbe "Problem" gehabt. Die Kategorie "Theme-Manager" ist jetzt neu um die Unverstehung(?) zu reparieren.

At least I think that's how you say it: the category's new because a lot of people made the same mistake :) - Jul 20 2005

KDE 3.5 Themes by freemail6 4 comments

I like the work you've been doing, and have been getting some good ideas from them.

But you're putting these in the wrong category. "KDE 3.2+ Themes Styles" are for widget styles... like "plastik", "lipstik" or "Keramik". Your work belongs in the "Theme-Manager" category. - Jul 19 2005

Full Icon Themes by everaldo 199 comments

The configure script does not look at the kde prefix in the environment (it assumes that you've installed kde in /usr/local/kde). I, too, use gentoo and it installs it in another location. You'll have to specify the prefix:

configure --prefix=/usr/kde/3.4

That should do it for you. I'm using it right now. - Jun 24 2005

Wallpaper Other by hubi77 13 comments

Couple things:

1) posting a 1600x1200 picture: THANK YOU! (scaling down always looks better than scaling up)

2) I'm already using it as my background

3) if I have any criticisms, it's that you've placed the subject right in the middle of the shot. But that could just be me being picky - I still think it's beautiful. (photographers are big into the "rule of thirds", it allows a better framing of the subject when it's offset a bit).

Kudos. - Jan 30 2005

This was answered earlier. From the other post:

There were 2 .moc files missing in the
last .tar.bz2 package, and I can't compile without them (flatkniftyclient.moc and config.moc).
To compile it, I did a moc -o config.moc config.h and a moc -o flatkniftyclient.moc flatkniftyclient.h. - Nov 20 2004
Konqueror search/filter field idea

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by WedDa 30 comments

I'm not trying to be condescending... just want to be thorough (and I deal with "interesting" people at work, so I have to be VERY detailed):

How to mimic your request with kio_locate:
1. Open Konqueror and go to "Configure Konqueror..." (in the Settings menu).
2. Click on Web Shortcuts in the left icon list.
3. Click on "New..." to add a new (Web) Shortcut.
4. For "Search Provider Name" I inserted "local"... but use whatever makes sense for you ("My Computer", etc.)
5. For "Search URI" put "locate:/\{@}" (without the quotes) or "ilocate:/\{@}" for the case insensitive search. And, yes, that's a forward slash and a backward slash (or backward slash and a forward slash... I can never remember).
6. Click OK and then select your new "search engine" as the default from the drop down menu just below.

Now, when in "web" mode, the search does just what you want. However, for File Management it switches back. Anyone know how to add it in for both?

(I can't get spaces to work in my locate:/ searches, though. I'm probably doing something wrong).

Oh, and give props to the kio_locate folks! :) - Nov 13 2004
Konqueror search/filter field idea

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by WedDa 30 comments

So - why recreate the wheel? I'm certain the kio_locate people would appreciate the suggestion. It's just another text widget (the difficult part) that would automatically prepend locate:// (the easy part) that would contact their kio_locate slave.

I'd love this extra functionality, too. I had been debating contacting the kio_locate people to see if they could alias "find://" for "locate://"... fewer keystrokes :) But a seperate widget would be wonderful (heck - why not go all out and include a drop down icon - like in firefox - where you could choose "local" or "google" or "altavista" or whichever!) - Nov 13 2004

Onebase 2004 Wallpaper

Wallpaper Other by themadtux 3 comments

Rule one around here: Don't flood the front page with multiple copies of the same wallpaper - even if they're different resolutions. People frown on it quite a bit and it's a good way to get "blacklisted" (or just automatically voted "bad" without actually looking first).

Best way to do it: add multiple thumbnails for the same wallpaper -- each thumbnail actually links to a different resolution. Typically, people put the largest resolution (the one they categorize the background in) as the download link, and smaller resolutions for the "thumbnails". Just tell us which is which in the description! Thanks. - Jul 28 2004

Wizards of the Coast is Notorious for coming down hard on just using the symbols from Magic. In fact, fan sites for the game can't even use them.

Office icons

Icon Sub-Sets by osrogon 12 comments

I've been looking forward to these being released since the preview you posted.

And I, for one, really like what you did with the "folder" icon. I can see how some may disagree -- calling it too similar to the mimetypes. But I enjoy it. - Aug 06 2002
Office icons (preview)

Icon Sub-Sets by osrogon 26 comments

Already, I'm a huge fan. I've always been partial to the "flat" look... too much 3d makes things a little too difficult to read (just my opinion).

However, please post at least a handful of icons... too many previews just ruins the fun!

We like. We want. Can't wait to see the full download! - Jul 27 2002
[@Konqi] Konqi Revolucion

Wallpaper Other by Valentin 4 comments

I'd have to get nitpicky.

Personally, I think it's great. But you want some feedback - so, please understand, that this may sound much harsher than it really is. Because I love it.

Right: number one - is the picture floating on the wall? There's no nail, tape, etc. Not a problem, at the bottom of the graphic; but the top part makes it look like it's hovering. Perhaps making the drop shadow smaller at the top and larger at the bottom might look "better".

Number two (and here's the ONLY real issue I have with the graphic), the poster "looks too nice". I mean, in contrast with the brick wall, it's a bit too clean/sharp. Perhaps sharpening up the brick wall - or blurring the posters words/edges might consolidate the images.

Otherwise - well done. I'm not typically a "bright" desktop fan. But I actually really like the color scheme. I only wish I'd had this on May 1st! ;-) - Jun 12 2002
iMMersion 5 - transparent

Wallpaper Other by ASpirit 22 comments

Now, with all the possible color choices... I can't STOP playing with the background on the desktop! Do I like it more in Blue or in Green or Red or Brown...?? It seems like I'll never get any work done now!

Many thanks for taking the time to "do it well" -- keeping the same hue for the KDE as the background (just lighter) must have been difficult, but I, for one, am in awe. Well done. - May 25 2002
iMMersion 5 - transparent

Wallpaper Other by ASpirit 22 comments

Actually, I quite like the background colors (I mean... they're BLUE!!!)

I'm curious if you might be able to release a transparent/semi-transparent version of the penguin on the logo in a .png graphic. That way, users can set up their own gradients/colors to match their windows.

Modified Conectiva Splash Screen

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by secretmethod70 7 comments

If I'm not mistaken, GPL says that you can rework and redistribute the code -- just as long as you keep credit where credit is due.

The Conectiva folks created this... and some might see the removal of their logo as removing their part of the credit. Much like fixing a bug in the Kernel and removing Linus's name from it. - May 20 2002
Modified Conectiva Splash Screen

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by secretmethod70 7 comments

Anyone know what Conectiva thinks of all of this? I mean, we've seen their Gimp splash screen lose their logo. And now their KDE splash screen... And the Crystal Icons are being included everywhere.

Granted, impersonation is the highest form of flattery. But I'm curious their take on the whole "branding" situation.

I'm not pointing any fingers (personally, I love the Gimp splash, and the KDE splash -- but I don't run Conectiva either). I'm just curious about their views on all of this. - May 19 2002
The Winhoes XP

Wallpaper Other by n1xt3r 7 comments

I'm not a huge MS fan either. And I don't typically go out for this sort of thing. But it kept a lot of us laughing at the office for a while. (Not the "Winhoes" portion, but the "Micropimp" portion... subtle is very, very good).

Incidently. You are correct. A "hoe" is a garden instrument. But, most words ending with an "o" add an "es" when being made plural. - May 08 2002

Wallpaper Other by Xter 8 comments

The stippled effect is really well done in this background. And I like the "KDE" (unfortunately I didn't see the first version).

However, I don't think the font looks well on the smaller text... perhaps something a little more streamlined? But I'm just being picky. Very nice. Very flashy. But not overbearing; it's very functional as a background! - Apr 14 2002
Assorted Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by telex 7 comments

Personally, I love icons. I don't know why. I just do. However, I hate seeing the same "designs" constantly rehashed.

These icons, however, throw a spin on it. It's not a "text file" implementation (different rectangles with various mini-icons superimposed) or a "folder" implementation (same as above... just with folders). But the circular idea is just nice. Granted, it's not a 100% different.... but it's a breath of fresh air.

Please!!! Keep 'em coming! - Apr 10 2002

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by ian 22 comments

Actually, I kind of like the 3 the way it is. Too much 3D can ruin something. This is nice and subtle.

But I do agree about the icons, especially the second one and the fifth. They just don't quite all match.

Now... if only I can get KDE3 running! - Mar 26 2002
