Love the updates. Would it be possible to play around with this setting:

Paint combobox handles with the highlight colour

It would look better if the colour was applied as a tint and not so obtruce. - Dec 03 2004
That really sucks. Plastik is the only theme I have come across that does this, all others do not suffer from this bug... - Dec 03 2004
I noticed some redraw problems that I dont know if they were present in earlier version (I dont think they were). If you select an icon and drag it around the window, it leaves artifacts...little dots. I couldnt use the original plastik theme because of this reason.

I am running KDE.3.3.1 and Qt 3.3.3. ATI 9200SE with built in drivers from Xorg 6.8.1.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Select an icon from a window or desktop.

2. Drag the icon around the screen.

Results in little dots and artifacts and can sometimes distort other icons.

Can be solved with a simple refresh. - Dec 01 2004
I have one major complaint: I can only vote once for this entry on kde-look...what the hell?

All joking aside, this is simply phenominal. THANK YOU so much for adding the option to get rid of the highlight on the taskbar buttons...oh man. This is THE theme for me now...unmerge everything else...gone...none need.

You are a marvellous beast! The updates, the work...you dont know how long I have been waiting to be able to scough at my bro and his beautiful gnome themes...now I can blow them all way.

I do have a minor suggestion. The menu items arrows. I think it might look nicer if the arrow also took on the text highlight colour as well, for now, they always remain their initial black.

Everything else is amazing. I also LOVE the scrollbar options you have put in, never got used to the KDE scrollbar type :) - Dec 01 2004
First off I just want to let you know what a fantastic job you have done. Your revisions to Plastik look beautiful.

I would also like to make a feature request. The dark outline on the currently selected item on the taskbar looks so heavy. It would be awesome if you could make an option to hide that so only the bold font is displayed, minus the obstrusive dark border around it. That would be a dream come true as the rest is just splendid. - Nov 29 2004
Thank you Lenz and thank you Pat for making this theme :) - Nov 25 2004

Great work. I really like the package icons as well as the DVD icons...very well done.
I think the file icons need a little more polish to match up with the rest of theme but all around its a truely an awesome job you have done.

I really like the logo, very well done. I do, however, think it would be better suited in the middle of the wallpaper and without the tackly looking lines behind it...maybe a software lens flare or nothing at all would be better.

Actually the wallpaper posted earlier with nothing but pot leaves, softened up and contrast reduced would me a wicked background for the logo, you guys should do a colaboration. - Nov 30 2004

I would hang on, TB v1.0 is scheduled to be released in the next 2 weeks ;) - Nov 29 2004
Gotcha. Just of note, I upgraded to the final release of v0.9 and your theme is not compatible at all. TB disables it and I assume its because of the build number.

FF had lots of headaches due to the build number changing with themes and extensions so I assume thats what is happening here.

I tested your theme with a recent nightly (labelled 0.8+) and it worked but it is completely unsupported in v0.9, bummer. Just wanted to let you know and thanks again for the development of a nice theme so I dont have to look at the ugly default for to much longer. - Nov 07 2004
Oops forgot to ask. Why did you make it for v0.8? v0.9 was released officially on the 3rd...just curious. - Nov 06 2004
Its a little buggy on v0.9 (alpha though), but its so nice to see someone making a theme for Thunderbird.

Thanks for making it and hopefully you stick with it to iron out all the bugs and make it completely compatible for v0.9

Awesome job :) - Nov 06 2004

Finally a decent FTP program for KDE. I see so much potential in this one.

I would love to see a more options for the UI such as allignment of the transfer windows horizontally (that would be a dream come true!) and a cleaner implementation of the log and queue windows. Keeping them in view at all times would also be a must have.

Please, PLEASE, make an option to hide the annoying and grotesque left favorites side bar that plagues KDE. God I do I hate that thing...

Anyway, awesome job on this one. Like I said, its about time a NICE FTP program was released for KDE :D - Nov 25 2004

I think it would have had more impact without the green font, maybe a small Suse typeface and logo at the bottom or in a corner somewhere.

Some polish could also be had in the background to better suit the clarity of the spiral in the center...

I really like this one and I see lots of potentional in it. - Nov 17 2004

Then you should probably post it under Lenirs name and not yours.

While your first version was poorly done, this new version shows none of your creativity or originality. All modifications made were at the advice of another person, which means this does not reflect anything from you at all.

Its one thing to take advice in stride but to follow it to the letter like they were orders is completely another... - Nov 17 2004

I would love to see more focus on managing queued items. Mouse support, drag and drop and easy movement on multiple selected items anywhere in the list order. Its especially important when you have 100+ tiems queued up and you want to change placement of lets say 30 in the list. Its painstaking to have to do it one by one or to select them all using shift one by one with the only option to move them to the top of the list.

This was also my biggest gripe with PAN for GNOME.

I am very happy someone has stepped up to make a binary newsreader for KDE. One was sorely lacking and would also like to point out, you are doing an awesome job so far.

Thank you. - Nov 17 2004

Worthless. Wallpapers are an artistic statement for the pleasure of your retinas--eye candy that should be used to uplift, inspire, or simply beautify--not poorly crafted statements.

Yes a message is not uncommon to deliver but artistic merit must be an intergral part of that message. You arent handing out flyers here.

This applies to anyone who chooses their message over art and releases them as these "faux" wallpapers when we really know its someone's opinion, and who doesnt have an opinion... - Nov 16 2004

oops, forgot to add. The world could use some polish...a little to abstract and blocky. - Nov 13 2004
Very nice. I really like this version, much improved. Love the colour, love the contours, and love the spotlight.

A wonderful piece and a really great work of art. Way to go! - Nov 13 2004
Love the smoothness and colour. Very nice use of reflections and shading.

I find the little ?puffs of could? distracting and add to much of an element of "trying to add more then you should have" to the piece. I think it would look better without them.

The world underneath the star could also use more polish or its opacity diminished to not take away from the star.

I really like the mood of this one and the design of the star as well as the text plays nicely, though cliche as it is, it works really well here. - Nov 11 2004

I completely agree. It is highly irritating to the eyes, tacky, and listless.

It would be a punishment to use this for a wallpaper and I seriously doubt the author uses it himself/herself.

I am almost tempted to believe this to be a joke, no one can seriously use it or even view the icons displayed over it in a desktop scenario.

Yes he is right. The X on linux should join together with the flow of the floor, you have the skew to the wrong side.

I really like this one. It shows real creativity and style. The mirror of the floor gives good contrast to the character in respect to the rugged drawing and the smoothness of the background. This only creates more focus to the character.

Really an excellent job here, good work. Aside from fixing the Linux text and possibly reworking the font, I would changed a thing...

Really great to see quality stuff like this shine through as its seriously lacking in these forums... - Nov 09 2004

I really like her face but her breasts, parts of her limbs and colouring need polish. Her breasts are much to square and need to be brought down in proportion, and her leg and arm need some better lines.

Colouring is pretty bland and blood doesnt fit to well. Nothing really to do with Gentoo either but some really nice elements here. Would have been better to just drop the Gentoo and add a better background colour. - Nov 04 2004
