Greetings

I want to know how did you do the animation (tools) and how can I do it by myself. May you give me the details?

By the way, this theme was't updated por the new versions of KDE. Are you going to do it? It's one of the best ksplash.

Hello,

all the animations were created with the Synfig 2-D animation project. I used a handwriting technique I had found in youtube... There is a link in the description-details of the theme in this page... I hadnt thought to port it in Plasma 5.x... For the time being there is no time yet in order to port it...

Dear Frolov,
thanks a lot for the notice, I have just updated the installation information as from 4.8.3 the problem is fixed in KDE....
There is also a new version 1.4.1 that adds a nice shadow animation for the bookmark...

After you install the theme you can go to the following folder:

<home folder>/.kde4/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/RedChenille-KDE/

in this folder there are two other folders 1600x1200 and 1920x1200. In each one there is an image called background.png.

So you can replace the background.png files with your image(do not forget to rename your image to background.png and also that it must be in png format)...

Have a good creating... :)

Are you trying manual install or through "Get New Themes"?
Any error message or something?

I tested it in OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.5

I have tried the two ways, manual and through "get new themes".

When i press the preview button appears and error message "preview failed".

And if i reboot doesn't work either.

Im using debian with kde 4.4.5

I think I found a problem, in a few minutes version 1.2.2 will be ready... The problem was that I have created the theme for resolution 1600x1200, in small resolutions near 1024x768 there were errors... So I enabled auto scaling but I dont know if it's going to look that good... Please inform me if you dont like the result comparing to your resolution...

I enabled version 1.2.4

Because pngs are 5x times bigger comparing to jpgs, I created two versions the default with jpgs and the second with pngs for kde versions <=4.4

I cant figure out why, no special packages are needed. I checked between KDE 4.4 and 4.5 and I didnt find any changes for ksplash...

The command:

ksplashx RedChenille-KDE --test

if you try it at the command line after you install the theme does it show anything interesting as error?
