Description:

Here's a tux start button I made for use with the kbfx applet for kicker. This is my first project on kdelook.org so hopefully I doing all this right. I based it on the xandros start button and the xp start button. For those who don't like the tux icons I also made a version with the xandros os icon but I didnt release it cause IDK if I would be breaking any copyrights, if not let me know and I'll upload that version to. To use it extract the images somewhere, select both images and drag it to the kbfx applet. Note: This button looks best with the "linspire inspired kicker background" which you can get from: http://kdelook.org/content/show.php?content=23765.

Thank you very much indeed for your job. Kbfx is really perfect. I was hating the former K button because of too small like any button. This is start button and it must be more attractive than other icons. And you did this. Thank you again...

Thanks and yes, I guess so. I mean the size that is used when I set the kickersize to "normal" and the icons on it are displayed in 32x32 and the taskbar uses two rows.

Do you have respect for other's freedom of choice and liking?

If you don't like windows, that's your freedom to hate it.

But, If someone like windows then Again it is his/her freedom to do so!

Don't try to force others what they should or shouldn't do! and what they should like or dislike!

This freedom is guaranteed by GPL (freedom to modify, distribute, and share).

Preach Preacher! No but seriously you make a great point and I wish people would make a bar theme just like windows because then I could trick my family and friends into using it! It's GPL people one of the Best Ideas ever made into a reality, at last true freedom!

where do we put the images to be able to use them?

Report

Remember you need kbfx to get these icons work as kbutton!

1. extract the icons!
2. drag one of the image on the kbfx applet.

Get kbfx from: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=24898

You can save them anywhere there's really no special place to make it work. Just put them in any directory you want then drag them over. Just make sure if you move the images to a different place you drag them over it again.
