I've worked a bit on this.
As it isn't the first time i'm trying to mess around with transparency with python (i've done it for HDD monitor) i know there are problems to let the corners that are originally transparent unchanged.
So i'll have to ask this question :
Do you mind having a dependency ?
(most likely imagemagick or python-imaging, also known as PIL)
Wich one would annoy you less ?
How woulpd you like to set the transparency ?
(Percentage in a textBox, or some pre-defined values in the right-click menu, ...)

Anyome may answer this, i need a bit of feedback to go on :) - Jan 11 2007

KDE 3.x Splash Screens by KingoftheIrishSea 21 comments

Sorry, geek in training, but as said brandybuck, just don't look at it :)

I think it is really *great* that christian people can download a christian theme for ksplash if they want to.
It on't understand either the low score this ksplash theme has (does it really look that bad to you guys ?)
I am not christian, but christian people have the rights to *think *and* _do_ what they want (including ksplash themes :p)

But i'll stop polemic here :)
Just to say this theme looks great to me (just love the idea, and i know of some people who will like it)
Thanks :) - Sep 27 2006

Hi !
I've done the small theme (just have to post it, should be done in the week) and am asking myself a question : Is there really any use of such a complicated thing like tab ? I think it will eat space with a near-useless feature. If you want to know the sts of a friend, just change the date temporarily, or launch another theme (wich will be easy with the small skin)
So an alternative i am thinking about is : Juste name the themes. Showing a name is a *lot* simpler and nearly as efficient (if it isn't more) than tabs, beacause :
- you don't have to click
-you know (and anyone esle can) which person got wich stats
I think with tabs one can quick forget wich tab represents wich person, and having to check is nearly as long as changing the date 'thanks to the TAB touch)

P.S. i thank you for giving this feedback, this is what makes the linux community live : persons who develop, and persons who give those ideas. - Sep 12 2006

HI !!
Looks like you're filling my to-do list :)
The first thing i may do is multiple BirthDates, as it is something i'll have to code, not to design (i'm not an artist, and *really* bad at designing things).
If someone can make a smaller skin, i'll let the user the choice to change skins...
How would you like to switch between BirthDates ? Something like tabs ?
And in each Tab a configure button, or a global one ?
And how to set the number of tabs ?
This bit of programation would be quite complex, because superkaramba wasn't designed for complex things.
Maybe i'll do it ;)
P.S. : the design is not by me, i just modified the original theme's code :p - Sep 10 2006

Hi everyone !
As this feature is included in superkaramba 0.40, you just have to change the text (it is now in GB by default)
reminder : %f is the free disk space, %fg is the free disk space in GB. As simple as it ;) - Aug 13 2006

Thank you, i didn't know !
But my aim is to ask the SK developpers if they want a Object-Oriented SK, or not. I want SuperKaramba itself to change, not developping an API in python (too slow in my opinion) - Jul 05 2006

Yes, i thought about this, too.
But even when KDE4 will be out, there will still be people using KDE 3.x
And KDE4 won't be out before some month, so i think thaht KDE 3.x can still be better.
As suslik said, why should the KDE tema botheriing with 3.5.x when KDE4 is coming ? thaht don't make sens to me. :p - Jul 05 2006

Thank you for your comment !!

And if anyone comes chcking for a new version, i'm not dead ;-)
I'll be working on v1.3 as soon as i get out of my exams :-p
I think i'll be using the df outpout (much more simple and much less cpu-consuming i think)
I may look at the imagemagick functionnalities, but i haven't much time at the moment (lot of work to do :p)
I promise a new version in less than a month (2 weeks i hope)

Thank you for trying to speak french :) (hard disk = disque dur)
You do not need to have a little disk, you need it to be full ;-)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by sirajr 613 comments

hello !
the vista menu looks great, excepted the lack of content (i.e. nothing in edutainment)
But the button does not fit my picture !
i use the debian-themed one found here on www.kde-look.org (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=27026)
and it shows me just "debi", the the picture is cut.
is this a bug ?
thanks - Nov 10 2005
