I've seen a lot of icon sets in the last few years, and this is the best one. Many thanks!
The only thing preventing me from using Cezanne as default is it's incompleteness. You can't mix it with crystal, nuvola or something.
So, I'd like to encourage you to continue your great work! - Mar 27 2005

I'd like to encourage you for some more icons... Any chances?
The kmenu icon is my new default :-) - Mar 27 2005

Very nice (idea)!
But IMHO it is too bright for the desktop.
So I added (in Gimp) via Python-Fu/Effects some "Fog" -- light blue, opacity 50. Finally I applied Python-Fu/Effects/Drop Shadow and Bevel.

Of course, some of it's simplicity is gone now -- just a suggestion. - Nov 26 2004

That's it. For other Mandrake users: The right place is:
~/.kde/share/applnk-mdk/.hidden/ScreenSavers

It works (still after a reboot :-), and for this reason I didn't edit the kglwatersaver.desktop file.

One strange detail, which might give you a hint:
When I first installed the RPM, KGLWaterSaver appeared apart from the other savers (it wasn't categorized in kcontrol).
Now it's among the other OpenGL screensavers.
Hmm, maybe it doesn't mean anything.

And thanks a lot again (first of all for this great eyecandy-screensaver)! - Oct 06 2004
Thanx for your reply.

Yes, the binary is still installed, and I can run it from konsole -- no error messages occuring.

The kglwatersaver.desktop file is (still) in
/usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/
(where all the others are), but (I swear) it doesn't appear in kcontrol's screensaver list.

I had a closer look to the file (using Konquerer's "Properties" Dialog) and it seems to be all right ...

Any other ideas? - Oct 05 2004
Sorry, I have to correct me: After a reboot KGLWaterSaver doesn't appear in kcontrol any more ...

Trying to rpm -e the package, rpm states, that the package isn't installed; trying to re-install it, rpm states, that the package is already installed ... pretty weird ...

Finally I tried to compile the tarball, because I really like the screensaver. I had to install a whole bunch of devel-packages, to satisfy the configure-script and make, but in the end, I didn't succeed. I was running into dependency conflicts. :-(

So I stopped at this point, hoping that someone will build an RPM for Mandrake 10.1 Community some time. - Oct 05 2004
The RPM-Version for Mandrake 10.0 works fine with 10.1, too. - Oct 04 2004

All right, thanks for the hint.

I ignored the upload feature
"content file n (optional)"

Next time ... - Jun 12 2004
Ooops! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to "spam" kde-look.org with those four versions of the wallpaper. I'm just not familiar with the kde-look.org policies (my first upload ever).

When deciding to make four uploads instead of one tar.gz, I thought of the people with low bandwidth (for example: 1024x786 = 170 KB, tar.gz > 900 KB).

Okay, there have been other people who complained about the multiple uploads.

Thank you very much, and thanx to Frank, the photographer (contribution of a MacOS user :-) - Jun 12 2004
