KSplasherX for KDE4 alpha 1
---------------------------

This is KSplasher (a convenient Splash Screen Editor and Creator) but for the new ksplashx, the splash engine for KDE4.

At time, you can create functional Splash Screens, but they can't be easily scaled as the one you see in the base KDE installation, but soon. That means that what you do in the editor screen is the final result so if you need bigger icons, you need to use a small background (or resize your icons, and then use it on KSplasherX).

Anyway, you can test your screens, and save as Directory or .tar.gz file. Also you can change author info, etc.

Editing a splash screen is still unimplemented (and maybe will never be, due to the lot of options in description.txt file) so this maybe has to be renamed from "Editor and Creator" to just "Creator".

You need pyqt4 (python-qt4) and PIL (python-imaging).

If you think you're capable to write some script (or make better mines) for generating animations (see filters.py in "modules" filder) plz contact me.

Any other help will be appreciated (translations, icons, logos, artwork, etc)

Well see ya. Good Luck.

yes!, the original KSplasher, who works on the Moodin Engine for KDE3.
you can found it http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/KSplasher+Splash+Screen+Editor?content=86463

Note that is still under development, but you can edit any (almost) downloaded moodin Splash Screen.

Right now i'm just developing the KDE4 version, based on the "don't look back" premise... and most of KDE4 distros are using ksplashx engine by default.

Good luck!.
Bye.
