Hmm... You are right I thought about that myself - maybe I'll give Tux a white belly soon.

Thanks for your comment, I'd be glad if more people would act like you instead of simply voting "bad" - I can only improve if I know what people don't like on it... - Mar 25 2004
I'll think about submitting this one in other solutions if people like it -

so be patient and vote for this if you like it... - Mar 24 2004
I'm glad you like it :).

The icons are from the Sparkling icon theme and you can get it on kde-look as well.

Here you are:

There's a suitable Splash Screen available as well:

I really like the Sparkling design too - great work! - Mar 24 2004

I agree (of course) - but:

Trouble is, I don't have any. Because I didn't think this to become a big thing, I possess only PNG-images myself but not any GIMP- or other source-files. In addition, I made this one up using different images of which I don't possess any source either.

But because I really agree with you I'll try and submit the source in future - at least the source of any chances that will (hopefully) be done... - Mar 21 2004
There is no "blue one" - it's transparent, so just add a deep dark color for background and there you are ;-).

Concerning the flare effect:
I'll submit an additional version including a flare effect, soon. I'm experiencing a bit trouble in finding a suitable intencity at the moment - I don't want to exagerate one more time... - Mar 21 2004
Okay, thanks everyone for the comments.

I have to agree - as I said already - the lightning IS too much. I'll try and make it a bit (okay, a big bit ;-) "less powerful". Or would you like a version without it better?

In addition, I'll try and smooth out those ugly blueish pixels.

Even if your comments didn't seem to be highly encouraging, I'm delighted that you seem to like it in general at least - and I think they really will help me to improve the wallpaper.

So - keep commenting, please and be patient with me ;).

P.S.: I'm sorry, but I'm not able to bring out a version without Tux - firstly, that would not be the point of this piece of work and in addition you can find the logo-only-wallpaper around here somewhere I think - so there would really be no point in doing that. - Mar 21 2004
Well - it depends on the color you use for background of course. Good point, though... - Mar 20 2004
