Hey!

I very much like this weather applet, however, the only thing that's keeping me using CWP is it offers a ton of different weather map choices. The only map for the USA is one giant satellite view. I live on the eastern seaboard and prefer to see a Doppler view of the region. On a tiny little cloud view of the entire USA, I can't see how far away rain is without going to a website to see it. With CWP, it shows me/us right there.

I hate to talk "bad" about this weather plasmoid since I like the lay out better. It's compact and show (almost) everything I want to see in just a couple clicks.

I guess I should've mentioned that I am referring to KDE3 for this comment. Sorry about that... :) - Aug 11 2008
PLEASE! Is there a way to add a "Menu Show Delay" to this style? It's totally possible since the Serenity style can do it. QtCurve would be the 100% best (with Serenity a close second) style. The instant show menu thing is impossible to navigate. It's SO much easier with a delay.

For instance, If I'm going through the K menu, and I slip off "Internet" and hit "Graphics" the Graphics menu shows instantly and the Internet menu disappears. The Serenity theme has a configurable amount of time before the Internet menu would disappear allowing me to put my cursor back on it with out activating the Graphics menu.

I'm trying to be as descriptive as I can in text... :-) - Aug 06 2008

Partly for that reason I've been using Slashdot's "Broken Window" topic icon for Windows (Cedega/WINE) files.

This is a nice icon, but you start running into the decision of "How much Microsoft licensed stuff do you REALLY want on your machine?".

For me, "As little as possible". Microsoft doesn't make Jedi Academy ( the main reason I use Cedega), so I'm pretty much in the clear.

Well, I don't know what to tell you other than nothing's changed. It's a small html page that *IS* the tar-ball:

$ ls -sh EyeCandy/Icons/Gnome-Green.tar.gz
12K EyeCandy/Icons/Gnome-Green.tar.gz

$ file -k EyeCandy/Icons/Gnome-Green.tar.gz
EyeCandy/Icons/Gnome-Green.tar.gz: HTML document text

Change the extension and open it in your favorite browser. It's the same "Clique AQUI para prosseguir" page.

-------------------------

Perhaps it's because you have a cookie on your machine saying you're a logged in admin user? It's just a thought. If that's not the case. there's something really wrong with the hosting.

Anyway, it looks REALLY nice, and as I say above, it's *SO* nice to get away from all the damn blue icons and decorations. - Nov 15 2007

It's true. The page feeds you a tar.gz file, but:

It just the same HTML page that we click. That file is not there (or whatever the server thinks is going on). - Nov 13 2007
Yea, the DL link is down. I *really* want to see this set on my machines because I am VERY VERY tired of all the damn blue icons out there... (and the silver / gray ones don't go with the Keramik Emerald color theme I like).

This is a great idea! Again, I can't honestly say if it works or not as I haven't "installed" it yet (this extension or fprot), but, I really like this idea. It's very handy in a *NIX controlled, Windows domain. Hell, it's a great idea to just have to ummm... "assist" in the recovery of a Win* box... (heh :-) )

Nice!

P.S.
Before any one says "you can do all this without this menu item", yes, I'm full aware of this. I'm looking at it from the perspective of showing someone (victim) a nice pretty GUI and in a few mouse clicks are able to 100% fix their Win* Box.

OK, so where does one put this? I've got the file open in kate and it looks clean, so I'll use it. I click on it (currently sitting on my desktop, untarred) and KDE tells me (quote) "[...] has no Type=... entry" in a window that is entitled "Error".

A bit of a README would be nice.

Thanx, though. Great idea, don't get me wrong, but a bit more then "it will install itself" would be handy.

First, I do like the pic, I downloaded it the first time you put this up (I did forget to vote good, so I'll do it this time).

Second, I don't see anything "updated" about it to warant an "updated" status.

Third, even though I do like this pic, as posted, it doesn't make a very good desktop pic. It's kind of washed out looking and a bit dark. I pulled it into gimp and ran an auto-level on it which helped a LOT. I raised the brightnes a tad, but that makes the darker parts far more black.

If I wasn't color blind, I'd do a lot more with adjusting levels and such to suit the pic better, but if *I* do it... :-)

Anyway, it is indeed a nice pic, but it needs some work yet. - Feb 29 2004

Thank you for the HOWTO, but something's not working.

Portage does indeed apply the patch and all, but nothing shows up in the control panel. Judging on the screen shot, it's supposed to be in the Window Decorations dialog somewhere (a very obvious new tab...). I don't get this.

I like this. It's quite nice. I have a small request/sugestion:

Can you slap one together where the Gentoo bar thing is at the top (or bottom - whichever, doesn't matter) since the default KDM logon window obscures most of the bar. I could probably do it if I knew how to use Gimp better, but since you have the raw file...

If not, no biggie. I just thought I'd give a thumb's up to you and make that suggestion.

I've been using Geentoo since the summer or so (I'm in the US). Keramik is part of KDE 3.1. I've been running all teh beats and RC's. You could instll it right ow if you wanted. Just unmask the packages in /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask and you can compile and install RC-3 (the final isn't out yet). ONLY do RC3. Here's what I usually do/did:

joe /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask

Search for kde and put a # before all the KDE entries (for RC3)

Then you need to also make sure you unmask the corisponding QT package. In the case of KDE3.1-RC3 it'll want:
x11-libs/qt-3.1.0_pre20021104



Just thought I'd let you know, if you didn't already. It seems pretty safe. The RC's are pretty damn solid (the beats wern't all that good, but...).
