I fixed it, thanks to you.

Sorry to bug you about one more thing, but simply look at the comparison.

Your images:

And the ones from BlackGlass Splash (the same resolution, so 1600x1200):

As you can clearly see, yours are lower res, so the Chakra logo is a bit too small for me. Could you make it higher? I believe you could upload higher-res pictures for your theme in kde-look as well, because every user would profit from this ;)

Thanks

I'm aware of that, I used smaller icons intentionally. I used this application to create this icon:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Ksplash+theme+generator?content=104456

I've edited the source code for that, but you don't have to do that, simply go to oxygen icon style folder, replace all kde-branding icons with the Chakra ones. :)

For detailed explanation please send me an email or contact me via Facebook. ;)

Hi. I'm currently using this theme:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/BlackGlass+Splash?content=110449

And I wanted to use your Chakra animatied icon (instead of the default KDE one, of course). It works, but the Chakra icon is moved a bit too much up, so it fits perfectly into your theme, but doesn't look to well in the BlackGlass theme. Can you please post a separate version of the .png for me to work with that theme, or tell me how to edit it?

Thanks in advance ! :D

It's easy, just open file "description.txt" and edit these lines:

Quote:
ANIM_REL 5 CC 120 -100 LT 30 icon5_anim.png 85 1
WAIT_STATE desktop


and

Quote:
STOP_ANIM 5
IMAGE_REL CC 120 -100 LT icon5.png

I don't know if you agreem but I'd personally prefer to see the icons below the Chakra logo to be aligned into one line, as it is done in 90% os the splashes - you think you can do that? ;)

(As an alternative version)

They were aligned by default, I was thinking to try 'something completely different'. :)

Just to let everyone know, I'm having problems with hosting this file, it may be unavailable for some time. I apologize for inconvenience.

I am really happy someone is making splashes with Chakra logo. I used it and so far it has annoyed me that I need to see this KDE logo everywhere except the start button ;) One thing - could you use the squared Chakra logo (like the KDE4 one) and not the circular one? For me, the square looks much better.

And where can I find this plymouth theme?

I'm glad you like it. :) I used circular logo because the plymouth theme I based this on also uses circular logo. That white... uhm, wings, don't know how to name them, are supposed to spin inside blue circle. I'm on it at the moment, hope to make this soon. :)

You coon find out all about how this thing got started here:

You'll find a link to a video there to see how that plymouth theme looks like.
