Hello & thanks for that nice theme(s).
I like both very much, unfortunately compiz isn't stable on my system. Is it possible for you to provide the buttons of this decoration as a SVG?
For then, I could use them to generate a theme for AURORAE...

Thanks in advance for your answer.

At first: Thank you very much for that nice plasmoid!

My idea for an additional function, activation of a window on mouse over the belonging preview (after a certain time)...Since I am not skilled in programming, I don't know if this complicated to do!

But this can be a helpful option for the plugin. - Mar 31 2009

Thanks for the theme! I like it's glass style very much.
You know the problem of the gap between a maximized window and the kicker; You find it also with KDE 4.2 (build 86.something, I believe). But it seems to disappear if plasmoids are locked... - Jan 28 2009

Hi there.

The sysinfo thingy works fine; Thanks a lot for that.

Except one thing, when installing it I get the following output from the bash:

Note that '/usr/lib/kde4/share' is not in the search path

be able to find it until you set them. The

Hi Furius.
Thanks a lot for this themes. Great work. Besides feeling lucky with your nice small themes , I've got the following problem: I use Fedora 7 which has elementtree build partly into Python 2.5 (In connection to that , some bugs made their way into F7 final) . For that the weather theme stays empty , all packages which have python in the name are installed on my machine . Maybe you have got an idea for a "nice" workaround? I'd really like to use this theme because liquid weather comes up so big on the screen ! - Sep 27 2007

First of all: Thanks for this great theme! Maybe you are interested to partly simplify the Liquid-Weatherlook? I think of the possibility to show/ hide the forecast for today and the next days of the week which are shown under the " main "current state of weather" part of the widget.

I do not know how to develop that. Please tell me what think about this... - Sep 25 2007
Nothing is as static as the change itself, isn't it!

I love this, because I can now find the village 2 kilometers away. All the true weather data. This is the best version since ever.

Hi there.

Sorry for no dark theme, but maybe white could be fine anyway, so try it! ;-)

You will find some backgrounds. novomac02 is the one you are looking for! - Aug 26 2007
I didn't mean to ignore your work or to dishonour it. So excuse me. Just as I wrote in the description, I really just used the mentioned parts. If some parts of the original theme(s) are taken from your designs it's hardly impossible to track all the involved artists, don't you think?

Anyway I hope you like it... - Aug 26 2007
