Icon Sub-Sets by belze 14 comments

Just FYI, KDE 3.2 will include a new control center module called UserInfo which allows users to change their password, name, and their user login icon ("face").

Please email these to Ravikiran Rajagopal ( the maintainer of this module, and .

I would love to see these in KDE 3.2 - Jun 30 2003
built-in K-menu manager

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by MMax 6 comments

Actually, KDE has a wonderful menu manager, called KMenuEdit. Mandrake Linux however, replaces all menus of all desktops with their "Mandrake menu". To accomplish this, they had to disable kmenuedit in their KDE release.

However, recent standards provide a new way for menus to be stored in a cross-desktop compatible way. Hopefully by the next major release of Gnome, KDe, XPDE, etc., the Mandrake Menu will no longer be necessary. - Jun 07 2003

One suggestion: perhaps the buttons could be bigger?

Otherwise, really great! I can't wait for the Grover style. - May 13 2003

Konqueror/kdesktop suggestion

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by PovMan 18 comments

Actually, In KDE CVS there is already an option called "Konqueror preloading", where you set a number of konqueror processes that always remain in memory.

I've tried it, and it makes konqueror start instantly. Also, for those who don't want it, it can be diabled entirely (which is the default.) - Mar 13 2003
Could you please update this theme and recategorize it under "X11 Mouse Themes"?

That would really be appreciated. - Mar 12 2003

Screensavers by onyx 15 comments

Actually, KDE supports xscreensaver itself. When I go into KControl : Appearance & Themes : Screen Saver, I get more than 120 entries. This is because all my xscreensaver savers are listed, and they work just as well as KDE screensavers.
I think that they are dectected at compile time however, so maybe this is why you don't see them.

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by elmo 21 comments

All right, I liked this style so much that I've started coding it.

I'll warn you ; I'm not the world's best coder, but I'll give it my best. As soon as I've got something that looks close to the screenshot, I'll post it, or email it to you.
I also have a few ideas for changes; when I finish the mockup I'll email it to you, and see what you think. - Feb 04 2003

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by elmo 21 comments

I will take a look at what is necessary to code something like this. I really like how it looks.

I would change: The menubar selected items at the top should look like your tabs; and the buttons look xpish. Also, the scrollbars need some work.

Other than that, really good looking! - Feb 04 2003

Ice-WM Themes by jdm 8 comments

The new(er) versions of Keramik easily support different colors. Look at any screenshots of KDE 3.1 . I like the way this windec looks, though. It'd be cool as a native KDE, instead of ICEwm. - Dec 02 2002

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by elephant 30 comments

Really cool windec!

Two suggestions:

1) allow disabling of dashed line effect on borders. (I know that you can set the colors the same)

2) Have some sort of effect on mouse over or mouse down on the buttons. - Dec 01 2002

If you did integrate the "run command", it would have to be optional. I really like such things as the icon that reflects what you type in, and the advanced options in minicli (the current run command box.) - Oct 21 2002

KSplash/ML (Release 0.95.3)

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by detsaot 57 comments

Before installing, verify that $KDEDIR is set to what Suse uses (for mdk9 it is /usr).
What's happened is that ksplashml has been installed in the wrong place, and can't find it's icons, etc.

*IF* suse uses its own menu system, you will also have to add a menu entry for KSplash/ML so that it will appear in control center; I'm not familiar with Suse, so I can't give details if this is needed. - Sep 30 2002

KSplash/ML (Release 0.95.3)

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by detsaot 57 comments

I used textars kde 3.0.1 MDK8.2 RPMs, which came with KSplash/ML. The kcontrol module is there, and works fine. If I run "ksplashml --test" it works fine. But I can't get it to work at login! Always I only see the traditional (ksplash not ksplash/ML) splash.

Here's my startkde file:
# the splashscreen and progress indicator

# Laurent kdebase-2.2.2-7mdk fix conflict with ksplashml
#if [ -e /opt/kde3/bin/ksplashml ]; then
# ksplashml
# ksplashml # ml added by braden

Why doesn't it come up?
