I like this icon set. Would you consider adding greys of each (for disabled buttons) and 'brighter' (for pushed/activated ones)? - Mar 20 2007

Works for me, and it remembered my settings from v 11.0. Thanks. - Apr 23 2006
A weather widget that works and doesn't take up huge amounts of real estate and looks good. I like it! - Feb 25 2006

I've already installed it, but... would it be possible to make a version in a deeper shade of blue? Thanks! - Apr 07 2006

Even though it could be improved, it's still good enough to put on the XP test machines in our lab to replace "teletubby land". And in the meantime, we eagerly await the refined version!


Thanks for brightening up our workplace! - Apr 07 2006

Just got back from travel and checked out 1.2c. Looks great! /dev and so on are not shown. - Apr 03 2006
Make sure you have py-imaging and PyQt installed on your system, as described in way above under "Whoops". - Mar 18 2006
OK, after did "yum install python-imaging"...


MMMMMMmmmm yeah! Transparency looks super good! I've popped a couple of screenshots up at http://clheiny.mystarband.net/screenshots/snapshot1.jpg and http://clheiny.mystarband.net/screenshots/snapshot2.jpg


Still see /proc, /sys and /dev, though.


Thanks! - Mar 17 2006

Just upgraded to 1.2, and still see the same problem - just a background colored bar, and nothing else. - Mar 17 2006
I was going to grab a screen shot of /proc etc, but decided to download the latest version first. Now it doesn't work at all. Yikes!


The window is not there - just a bar the color of the background (I can see it because it obscures part of an icon). The usual theme menu is available (no configuration, though), and I can unlock the bar and move it around the desktop.


I'm running superkaramba 0.37 of KDE 3.4.0 (Fedora Core 4). - Mar 16 2006

I like this one - easy to interpret at a glance. Some eye-candy I'd like to see:

  • a degree of transparency, to let the background partly through. Maybe 50% for the overall frame, 25% for the bars?
  • don't show filesystems such as /proc, /sys, /dev/pts, /dev/shm
  • remove the header and "hdd meter", or make them optional. I know it is an hdd meter - my brain isn't so far gone that I'm likely to forget.

Anyway, thanks for the work, and for a useful theme. - Mar 14 2006

I like'em! They'll be going into the desktop apps I write as the default icon set. - Feb 17 2006

Shouldn't that be Synaptic (for the package management tool) rather than Synaptics (the place that makes touchpads and pointing sticks)? - Feb 13 2006
