If you're using KDM this is already possible. When you click "Logout" it will present you with "End Session Only", "Turn off computer", and "Restart computer". If you were using GDM or XDM though, I guess this might be useful.

What might make this more useful though is if you could present a restart option with boot images to select from. This is presented in KDM, but not in the logout screen. - Apr 08 2004

The open link has a reference to "/opt/kde3/bin/konqueror". Why? Just using "konqueror" works. Not all distros have konqueror installed in the same place, so an absolute path is a bad idea. - Mar 06 2004

Had nothing better to do, so went ahead and modified the script again to create a desktop link. Pretty simple actually. Anyhow, tell me if you want it, and I'll email it to you. - Feb 28 2004
I just hacked your script to use konqueror --profiles instead of the other setup. If I have enough time, I might also work on getting it to create a .desktop link as well. Anyhow, let me know if you want the modified version, and I'll email it to you or something. - Feb 28 2004
~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles doesn't exist on my system, and therefore the script has subsequent problems. What if you just had the script run "konqueror --profiles"? Just save the results to a file as in "konqueror --profiles > /tmp/profilelist". This would resolve the prob on my distro (Mandrake 10 Beta 2), and should everywhere else.

Also, although I understand this is a learning project, I don't quite see the practical benefit. I think most people would prefer to simply click/double-click a link on their desktop or kmenu, rather than run a shell script where the run through options. If a person isn't savy enough to define their own link, I could see this script being used to define one for them (i.e have the script generate a .desktop file for them). Other than that, I don't think most users want to sift through a dialog every time they want to use Konqueror. - Feb 28 2004

Finally decided to try this theme out after seeing it again while browsing. I wanted to see how the theme dealt with output from "ip", as it's quite a lot to filter through. After a quick glance at the theme file, I saw that the prog being used is "hostname -i".

Here's the problem with that. On my system, "hostname -i" returns 127.0.0.1. I'm pretty sure that's not my external IP :-). The problem is that I use a custom hostname versus the one that my ISP assigns me automatically ("HAL-9000" if you must know). I have this hostname mapped to the loopback address, so that when my internet connection goes down on rare occassions X will still respond normally (otherwise applications load extremely slowly, as it's trying to resolve a hostname that has no entry in /etc/hosts, and no, I can't put an entry there as the auto assigned hostname changes from time to time). Anyhow, the point is, in some instances (i.e mine) the hostname has nothing to do with the external IP.

I would suggest the theme use something like the following:
program="/sbin/ip addr show eth0 | grep 'inet ' | cut -d t -f2 | cut -d / -f1"

It still has a trailing space in front, and I'm sure there's a way to get rid of that, but this is just what I banged up in a min. or so. In any case, it's more ideal than "hostname -i". Oh yeah, and looking at that sequence I just realized some people may be working with multiple interfaces (eth1, eth2, etc.). In fact, I have another system here that I use eth1, since eth0 is an onboard network device that has probs. Anyhow, maybe you could have the user specify from which device they'd like to get info. - Dec 30 2003
That should be simple, actually. Any command that provides text output can be displayed on the desktop via karamba. So, traceroute, for instance, could be run and displayed on the desktop. If you can figure out how to produce the output in bash, you can easily do it in karamba :-) - Dec 20 2003

It's a karamba theme. In my case, it came with Karamba 0.17. It's very simple and doesn't use any python scripting, so I don't think it comes with the new SuperKaramba. You can actually build the theme yourself it's so simple. If you take something like my Evolution theme (I believe it's somewhere still buried on this site) and modify it to run "fortune -s" rather than my script, then you'd basically have it. - Nov 24 2003
I suppose I could have said something like "for people with limited computer literacy", but I'd rather make a blanket statement that will get a rise out of someone ;-). And yes, I do realize that many people involved in Computer Science are over 40, many of whom are great advancers in the field. I use this very example to counter the "I'm too old" argument I get from "old" people.

Just like the "computers were before my time" excuse. So you mean to tell me you were born before 1890, when Herman Hollerith invented one of the first electro-mechanical computers? Or in a broader sense, referring to any computational device, we have the abacus dating back to possibly 1000 BC. It was also common to refer to people who were experts at computation as "computers" all the way into the 1950's. We also have the first graphical interface, and the concept of hypertext links coming from that same decade.

Really the people who use these excuses are either lazy or afraid or both. They should just admit they're not willing to learn. If one is willing to learn, ley can overcome any ignorance.

Well, anyhow, that's the end of my rant. Mainly I'm talking about people like my grandfather btw. He commonly *brags* about how "I don't even know how to turn the damn thing on". My mother, on the other hand, can be frustrating with some self-imposed limitations (i.e she doesn't manage her own /home directory), but she's been willing to try out GNU/Linux, and is willing to learn anything if it's "shown", but like a lot of users, learns by rote, and gets annoyed when I try to explain anything in abstractions. - Nov 22 2003

It looks like the licensing was changed slightly (check above discussion). Other than that, I can't tell. The image looks about the same, and honestly I'm not sure ley should change anything. The wallpaper seems perfect as-is. - Nov 07 2003
I'm pretty sure re-scaling is not what the author intended to mean as "modification". Perhaps you could ask lem politely, rather than immediately insulting lem personally, simply because of leir choice in licensing. Some artists actually greatly value their artwork, and wish to protect it. Their goals have nothing to do with restricting your rights, or seeking monetary compensation.

BTW: Haven't seen the wallpaper yet, but the thumbnail looks somewhat interesting. Checking out now. - Nov 06 2003

Actually, it's a well-known scriptual quote, not something the maker of this wallpaper thought up (which is what those "" things mean ;-)). Also, I personally can't see how the heavens could declare the glory of "Nature". That is, if you are using Nature in its most common context. That being that of physical reality, or as Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary defines it: "The existing system of things; the world of matter, or of matter and mind; the creation; the universe."

Usually when we talk of something being glorified, we're referring to an entity, which would suggest that Nature is an entity. I honestly believe personifying nature is irrational, but then, I guess atheists believe the notion of any all-high intelligence is irrational as well. - Oct 25 2003

Unfortunately not. This wallpaper is based off of this image --> http://www.desktopia.com/cgi-bin/ImageFolio3/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Female_Models/Helena_Christiansen&image=26800.jpg&img=&tt= which, afaik, is only avail. in 1024x768.

I got the idea for this wallpaper when I saw a similar concept in a wallpaper. It was a B&W photo of 1/4 of a face (eye and nose) with the eye remaining colored (blue). I used the airbrush tool to simply color in the whites with a different shade and it turned out all right.

So that's when I browsed around desktopia.com for other faces, and found this one, which seemed to me to fit as Chani. From there I used the KDE desktop tool to fade black over the face (I'm not that proficient with The Gimp, so I couldn't find an easy way to do it in there), and then colored in the eye. The text on the left is a single layer from a generated "Neon" logo (a mistake at first, from simply copying and pasting the logo without merging layers, at which point I found I liked this softer look anyhow).

If you don't mind this quick hack (made it since there's too few Dune themed wallpapers), then I may post some more in the future. I'm thinking of doing one with Jessica (if I can find a good matching face) with some dunes faded in.


Thanks for the interest :) - Oct 03 2003

Do you still have the original gimp file(s) used to create this image (i.e with layers intact)?

I changed your code:

CLICKAREA X=4 Y=6 W=83 H=25 ONCLICK="dcop kicker kicker popupKMenu 0"

To this:
CLICKAREA X=4 Y=6 W=83 H=25 ONCLICK="dcop kicker kicker popupKMenu 0,173"

That way the menu pops out at the same place each time, horizontally. Not sure if this would be the same for all resolutions (I run 1024x768), but if you just experimented a bit, you could find out and see.

Now, if a way could be found to incorporate auto-hide, I'd say your theme would be fully complete :) - Jun 20 2003

Yes I get it and all, but this is a serious matter. Licensing is a very serious topic, and people should stop making light of it. These are very serious legalities, and kde-look depends on it's submitters to pay strict attention to these matters, in order for its continued existence.

I'm sure most people will get on a soap box about the image itself, I'm just wondering about the copyright. Even if you are the webmaster that this image is partially derivative of, how can this possibly be distributed under GPL? The download link is just the wallpaper itself. Where's the "source"?

People really need to think about licensing, before they just start randomly posting images everywhere.

Yep, and the licence comment as "GPL" is completely ludicrous, not only because their is no way this person can maintain the original copyright in order to license it, but also there's no "source" provided with this image, violating the terms of the GPL as well. This kind of crap sheds bad light on the free software community.

Whoever posted this should make sure they contact Lucasfilm before distributing this, and in the meantime I'd suggest kde-look.org removes this content to legally protect the site. - May 28 2003

I totally agree, however I'm perfectly content with the amount of games available for Linux. I personally have Descent3, SimCity 3000, Tactical Ops, NeverWinter Nights, Karting Race, and Unreal Tournament 2003, all for Linux, not to mention all the tons of quality Free/open-source games available. Some of my favorite Free games include Frozen Bubble, Ksirtet, and Celestia (if you can consider it a game; totally awesome nonetheless).

Linux gaming is becoming more and more viable as development companies and distributors realize the potential. Savage, for instance, is yet another game that is going to ship with Linux support. UT2k3 shipped with Windows and Linux versions, but not Mac, reflecting Linux's new place as the second most used OS, displacing Mac.

Of course, despite my skills, and my collection of games, I don't really consider myself a "gamer". I don't really *need* that hot new game as soon as comes on the shelf, so my occassional "cravings" are more than satisfied. My mother, on the other hand, is totally addicted to one game in particular (although she's spending less and less time with it), namely "The Sims". She has a Mandrake 9.1/Win98 dual-boot system, and I have her Mandrake desktop completely tweaked (Karamba, Slicker, custom X cursors), but I have done absolutely nothing with the Win desktop. The background is the default dull green, and cluttered with default icons from installations she never bothers to remove. I've noticed this subtle difference actually aids in her departure from Winblows.

Anyhow, in summary, Linux gaming is alive, and continues to improve, and in the mean time, if you'd like to break your addictions, try making your Win desktop less attractive to remind yourself that you're not there to have fun... just to play games ;) - May 11 2003

Seriously, how could this possibly be covered under the GPL. It's a friggin wallpaper! To distribute under the GPL you have to clearly define what is the "source code" for your project. Theoretically that could be possible, if you had like the original Gimp file you used before merging the layers or something, but that's not even being distributed. When you click download, you just get the image, no copy of the license, no source code or written offer for the source. This is becoming more and more common on this site, since the default license is just GPL, that's what people choose, disregarding their responsibilities for public distribution under the GPL. This kind of thing makes the GPL look like a joke, as if GPL=Public Domain or something. - May 09 2003
