Description:

Splash screen for Kontact, the personal information suit for KDE. I use this application so much that I have come to love it - and seeing that when I start it I see no splash I felt like doing one.

Hope it gives you some eye-candy to look at while Kontact loads. ;-)

Where do I have to place the image to have it displayed?

OK, I renamed it to

splash.png

and copied it to /usr/kde/3.4/share/apps/kontact/pics/

/usr/kde/3.4/ = KDEDIR (Gentoo)

but I don't see it. Is there somewhere an option to show/hide the splash-screen??

I had a bit of a look, and I am afraid Kontact doesn't come with a splash screen feature. I am sure it would be easily added - probably less than 10 lines of text.

I knew this before I started out, so sorry for not mentioning it earlier.

Anyone know anything about adding a splash screen feature?
Also, I intent to make a few small changes on the splash sometime soon - making the icons watermarked also, and fixing that spacing issue.
