File Manager (OS X)

Has anyone used FileBrowse, a file manager, for OS X? Just from looking at the website it looks very nice, and it would be nice to see icons of a similar style in KDE 4. If someone has used it are there good ideas that should be borrowed for the KDE 4 file manager?

I know this won't satisfy your particular requirements, but if people are looking for a fun way to begin to get a handle on programming concepts they might consider looking at Kturtle. Cheers.

python can't find karamba module

Thanks for all the help, I just tried DoomCPU again today, and it works great. I've changed distros since my initial post (I'm running Kubuntu now), so I don't know if there are any issues running it on Debian Unstable. Thanks.

Panel color

If you want to change the color of the kicker, Open the Control Center (kcontrol) -> Desktop -> Panels -> Appearance tab. You should look at the Panel Background section. If you are trying to change the color of a transparent panel click on the "Advanced Options" button at the bottom of the screen. Cheers.

KDE 3.5 and mp3 issue

I think that the level of difficulty playing mp3 files is related to the distribution you are running. For example on Kubuntu getting mp3s to play only required that I install a couple packages. Good Luck.

Krita - How do I download

The download page for KOffice (krita is part of KOffice) is here... You should check to see if you can get Krita through YaST, it will be far easier. Good Luck.

Konqueror suggestion

Wishes belong in bugzilla ( But if I just wanted to see avi files sorted by size I could enter in the address bar /some/directory/*.avi, then press the Size column header. Good Luck.

random issues with KDE 3.5 RC1

bugs should be reported to . There is very little chance that problems will be addressed if you just post them here. Cheers.

Wallet is a PITA!

I'm running KDE 3.4.2, so I'm assuming it's the same for your version. To turn KWalletmanager off... 1. Open the Control Center 2. Select "Security & Privacy" 3. Select "KDE Wallet" 4. Uncheck "Enable the KDE wallet subsystem" Cheers.

Howto create themes for KDE

Maybe you're thinking about something different, but I think you can just setup your desktop the way you like it, goto "Appearance & Themes" -> "Theme Manager", and press the "Create New Theme..." button. A new theme will be created using your current desktop setup. Hope that's what you're looking for. Cheers.

The screen goes wild

A GeForce 6600 128MB provides more than enough horsepower for KDE, I just (two weeks ago) upgraded to a GeForce 4000 MX from a NVidia Vanta. Both cards run fine. As to what this particular problem is I don't know. I guess I'll list off the usual suspects... _ Have you checked your xorg logs? _ Do you have the latest NVidia drivers? _ Are you running with transparency/drop shadows? _ Does the problem occur at regular intervals, or when you do something specific? (Can you reproduce the problem?) H...

few config questions

I'm sorry I can only help with #3. 1. Open Control Center 2. Goto "Appearance & Themes" -> Style 3. Goto the Effects tab 4. Make certain that "Enable GUI effects" is checked 5. Locate the "Rubberband effect" drop down and select "Make translucent" That should do it. Cheers.

Sub-Launcher in Kocker

I've never used XFCE, could you describe what a sub-launcher is? Perhaps there's a KDE equivalent. Thanks.

worked like a charm

Thank you very much, your advice worked. I used the carousel.desktop that you supplied. (I removed the SuSE specific second line.) For fellow Debian users, the screensaver desktop files are in /usr/share/applnk/System/ScreenSavers/. Thanks again.

Carousel Screensaver

I noticed in xscreensaver there's a screensaver named Carousel. It loads a number of different images then rotates them around. The thing is I don't see it in the KDE Control Center. The box to the left of the screensaver in xscreensaver is checked, but I can't get it to appear in the Control Center. Does anyone know how to do this. Thanks.
