Xaphire debs for debian

KDE 3.5 Themes by qgqlochekone 4 comments

Yeah I'm sure I messed up somewhere. I've only been using Linux for 8 years now. Personally I don't think Ubuntu is that bad. I've used gentoo and that is more advanced than debian in my opinion. I've tried all the mainstream distros and it's a lot of fun.

I found this on your site.

"Not work with stupid frontends like synaptics, call to a linux real expert to use my packages!"

I like synaptic and aptitude and frontends or gui applications work really great.

Sounds like your real professional with that type of stuff.

And as for being a windows users. I love computer science so I work with many types of operating systems and platforms. Use what works for you and sometimes that means Ubuntu or whatever suits your fancy.

I still think your theme could be better. Good luck getting that to work on kde 4. lol - Nov 20 2009
Xaphire debs for debian

KDE 3.5 Themes by qgqlochekone 4 comments

I think this whole thing your trying to do here just plain out sucks. I put this on an old debian box I had and it completely screwed up the whole system. It must have been the bootpsplash thingy because I got "kernel panic" message when I rebooted.

Plus it just looks bad. The colors are awful and so much more.

Please don't quite your day job. - Oct 04 2009

Great idea but just one question on the ipod theme I keep getting yucky blue titlebar color can I change that to silver? Also I had to changed colorschemes in kcontrol which was not installed by your install script but it's still blue. - Dec 04 2004

Cursors by dvornik 34 comments

I just wanted to say that this is really nice mouse theme. It's the only one I've ever used set aside from default cursor etc. In fact when I come to this section of the site this is the only one I get.

No offense to others who have made nice mouse themes but this one just seems to go well with any theme.

Thanks - Nov 19 2004
Baghira 0.6 for Slackware

KDE 3.5 Themes by rgeber 9 comments

There is no doubt that baghira is very nice style but IMO it is a bit too bloated. And when I hear people say their apps crash with baghira theme applied it don't suprise me. However, with the most recent versions that has rarely happened to me so I choose to run it anyway cause it's cool like a Mac.

As for baghira trying to copy OS X
I spend money but I just don't see the point in paying for a box that only looks good. I been on macs before in the store when they had them on display and for a "power pc" arch they don't seem that fast.

So I guess if you come over my place and see a few dells' as opposed to a mac then you won't feel at home?

It's all about status, just like you would prefer to drive a pinto and me a BENZ.

Bad analogy maybe but true enough. And I'm not directing that to anyone in general just indirectly speaking.

And thank you for making slack package ;-) - Nov 19 2004

It does not make sense to get a "theme" when I have to manually go and download all the components that are needed to comprise the theme itself.

3Dimensionnal Desktop !

Gnome Screenshots by jon1012 6 comments

Hey it would be nice if you were just blunt like saying Metisse and Xwnc when people ask instead of being discreet you should share.

Also be a sport and advise others of not wasting their time unless they have a "decent" graphics card that can support the opengl 3d accel etc.

For thoose who want to check it out metisse can be found at the link below. Be warned that it's totally experimental.

And since were on the subject here is mine with "only" fvwm, running stuff like gnome panel in metisse adds more bloat IMO. - Sep 23 2004

Since your using the symbol at the bottom that is suppose to be symbolic for "hackers" shouldn't it be the other way around?

OSX like Desktop

KDE Plasma Screenshots by Chris12349 1 comment

I was having the same problems with xcompmgr until I said the hell with it and bought an nvidia card, now my xcompmgr runs 10 times better. I still have issues but they are slim to none, I can run it for as long as my xsession last, switch back and forth between virtual consoles and maybe a glitch here and there but nothing major like before.

That solution worked for me but to be honest all that stuff still has a way to go.

I'd bet that baghira looks just as good on your box without the xcompmgr. ;-) - Sep 18 2004
Hey thanks this is a great tool and fits nearly all my needs and the best of all it looks great! - Sep 17 2004

kde 3.3 + 6.8 = transparency :)

KDE Plasma Screenshots by terra 7 comments

IMO it's not worth it unless your a developer and want to do some debugging yourself.

Oh it looks nice but looks a whole lot better in a screenshot than it runs. For most folks there is not an interval that passes that xcompmgr does not crash in some way or another.

If you don't want the headaches then just wait for the final release. ;-) - Sep 04 2004
