KDE Orange Peel Wallpaper

Wallpapers KDE Plasma by sbrown1038 8 comments

Most of this was done using the gimp. It's a nice change from blue. You could probably make it blue using the gimp. I've made myself a lime green wallpaper based on this orange one with the 'image | colors | desaturate' followed by 'image | colors | color balance'. To do horizontal lines, you could use a repeating gradient as a bump map or try 'filters | distorts | video'.

Hope this helps. - Feb 07 2004

It's not transparent. I haven't upgraded to KDE 3.2, which allows the kicker to be set to transparent, yet. So everytime I create a wallpaper, I create a kicker background to go with it. - Jan 15 2004

Of course I don't object. I hope you also uploaded the theme to the appropriate section here on kde-look.org.

Note: When I clicked on the snapshot on blahzone.dk, it popped up a picture that was too large to view and could not be scrolled. Also, it was a little tricky downloading a .ktheme file (looks like garbage in a browser windows), but I was able to get it working. - Oct 31 2003

Thank you for your feedback. One reason for NOT using the 'changelog' is that the original work may have been rated low. I don't think it makes sense to submit an improved work and have it start with the low rating of the work it replaced. Do you agree? I do review my 'gallery' from time to time, so in the future I will make an effort to remove duplicates. - Jun 27 2003

Yes, it might be because of the dark colors. In cases where I want to get rid of the red and green, I 'colorify' the selected area. This will apply a tint and is only useful if you don't mind the selected area being tinted the same color. - Jun 07 2003

In gimp, right-click on your image and select 'Filters | Distorts | Video' from the menu. Make sure the 'Stripes' radio button is selected and click the 'OK' button. You can select an area and apply the effect to the selected area. - Jun 01 2003

Yes, that's a karamba theme. It's available here in the karamba section. The name of it is 'Jim McQuade'. The buttons in my theme have a glossier look than the ones in the theme that you will download. That's because I touched them up a bit using the gimp. - May 13 2003

Karamba & Superkaramba by crankshaft 7 comments

I can't get the xmms progress bar to work. Also, my xmms buttons don't 'light up'. Even though they are gray, they work when I double-click them. I downloaded xmmsctrl but I'm not sure it's the most recent version. It doesn't seem to support the 'time +/-' argument.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, a suggestion: I don't know whether karamba supports mouse-over hints, but if it does, you should add them.

Thanks. - May 02 2003

I hope that you have received all of my contest entries. I keep getting e-mails saying that my messages are too big (>40k):

"The reason it is being held:

Message body is too big: 45580 bytes with a limit of 40 KB

Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision."

To my knowledge, all of my .PNGs have been under 40k. I did send multiple files until I started getting these e-mails. Could you let me know how many entries you have received from me so I could re-submit them before the deadline if necessary? - Apr 22 2003

I don't think you can tell what 'style' I'm using from the screenshot. I'm using 'Kicker' for the bottom panel with a 8x64 background image I created. For the color scheme, I took the 'Dark Blue' color scheme and change the window background and push buttons to black. I changed my clock to 'Analog' and removed the date and second hand. I removed the task bar and pager from the panel (kicker). Then, from the kicker menu (right+click), I selected 'Add | Extension | Kasbar'.

Generally, I like the 'Keramik' window decorations. I believe it's available here. If you have a recent release of Red Hat Linux, it's included. - Apr 12 2003
