Description:

This is the smallest kde improvement you've ever seen!

In fact, if you can spot the change in the screenshot, you win the right to download the package!

Hint: Seriously, look for the bottom corner of the 2 kparts in the konq window, better leds... Kiss your KDE2 look goodbye!

Thanks to: Icon King! because the led comes from Nuvola. (The best icon set ever.)

INSTALLATION : put the 2 pics in /opt/kde/share/apps/konqueror/pics/
if your kde is in /opt/kde... else, locate share/apps/konqueror/pics in your distro.

##### UPDATE : You can get it if you have KDE 3.3.1, but it is now integrated in the CVS HEAD.

3.0: Ok, its smaller, and I admit it, it looks better, so thanks for harrassing me. Its got 2 pixels padding on each side so it wont look bad. Ive also included new frames for the anchor "checkbox" but its worth nothing... maybe someone will come up with a good idea.

2.0: NOW the background is transparent so there wont be problems with other color-schemes... and its 1 pixel smaller to please some guy...

Thats all!

Maybe if you submit your work to the kde-artists mailing list it'll be included in the next release ;-)

However, even if you resized it, it still is too big, expecially when compared to the previous led. I don't want my toolbar to waste precious pixels! Just resize it as the current led and it'll be fine...

Looking forward to see that in KDE 3.4!

A very nice enhancement. However, I found a problem - the LED background isn't transparent :( My foreground color isn't white - it's light-grey, so active LED has too bright background. I fixed it by making the background transparent using GIMP (I could mail you the modified files if you wish - my email is soundblaster [at] aircom [dot] lv).

These leds look a lot better, far more lively and modern. They fir in better with icons like Nuvola and Crystal.

And what I love most is how clean your Konqueror version is. It's absolutely stunning! This is how I would expect the default to be.

Ive done that... but it triggers a bug when you split a view... Try it.

(the current one is from kde 3.2-era.. the older one which was even more hideous was kde 2.x)
