jachin(' ')a
Dr_williskde is so themeable/changeable - its sort of scary. :)
MinceRthat can't be scary
Q-collectivehey all, I just upgraded to xorg-server 1.3.0.0 (from 1.1.1) and building the screen when switching windows is very slow... is this a common issue with kde or did xorg just regressed again? :(
MinceRit's only scary if it isn't easy to do -- with fvwm, for example :>
Dr_williswonder if kde4 is going to clean up some of the themable issues with kde. Make things a bit clearer/cleaner/nicer to do.
Try explaining how the Kde theme 'system' works to a total beginner. :) scares them.
Jucatoif they do, I hope they don't "simplify" it while losing features/power...
Dr_willisJucato, yea. its a balancing act.
benJImanDr_willis: kde already has themes that simplify things, but nobody uses them
themese are really easy to use meta things
Dr_willisbenJIman, yep seen those also.
Jucatoexcept that they're difficult to "really" use...
Dr_willisexplain how the stuff works.. then you discover a way to use all the icewm themes.. :) then its like.. that opens up a whole new expance of themes..
Jucatokde themes (.kth) requires certain parts of the theme to already be installed before hand. It neither gives a warning nor a clue when they aren't
Dr_willisor am i the only one that just uses Plastik :)
Jucatosome oldtimers are with you :D
jachin:)
Dr_willisJucato, ya hit it on the hammer there.
logixoulbenJIman: would be great if those were a bit more flexible tho... currently they can't set the kicker/konvi/konq/konsole background, the text colors for the clock/konvi, etc
Dr_willishammer on the head. heh
jomppaokay now i'm pissed off. i've spent more than three hours trying to get some unicode characters to show up in konqueror, with no luck. i have installed the fonts to my system, then added them with kde's font installer, how can konqueror find them?!
jachinYes. Plastik is good theme in default.
logixoulbenJIman: but I guess the real issue is that people don't realize themes exist :)
Jucatologixoul: um... you can
logixoulJucato: really?
Jucato(except the text colors for taskbar)
logixoulJucato: how?
Dr_willisthey think of a 'theme' as ALL the parts.. not just a 'settings file on what parts to use' :) i guess is what one can say.
Jucatologixoul: what? you can set different background images for those apps you mentioned. except for kicker
chronosHow I install a splash screen for kde?
Jucatokicker's background affects all panels
logixoulJucato: see the message I was replying to... I was talking about what you can include in a .theme file ;)
Jucatologixoul: ah ok :)
logixoul: hm.. I thought Konqueror backgrounds (file manager view) were set in the .kth file as well
dang! I can't even remember my own doc :(
actionlogixoul tries
logixoultries
Q-collectiveanyone?
lilalinuxQ-collective: maybe it would be a good idea to mention your card and driver ;-)
Q-collective: alternatively switching to gnome or whatever for a second and see if it is slow too
