Plasma desk by lassekongo83 Plasma desk by lassekongo83
Just testing KDE. It still have a cluttered UI that can't be styled with CSS. :p (What's with the million menu entries for desktop customization? Put it under 1 lol.)

And it's a bit slower than Gnome...

Wall and pic:
:iconwinnichip: (Great gallery.)

Pic 2:

Plasma theme: Glassified
Qtcurve: Something I threw up... :p
Icons: Faenza for KDE.
Apps and plasmoids: avant-window-navigator, kwrite, picture frame plasmoid, digital clock plasmoid.

Close to perfection.

The top screenshot isn't showing anything and nothing that isn't already in the bottom shot???? If we want to see the wall, we can go to the creators page. KDE makes me laugh.

No drool, stay in mouth.

I hope with Qt5 it may become more performant that GNOME (this coming from a GNOME fan). I love 'em both, honestly. They both do very well in their own right. P.S. Where's the cashew button (in the upper right by default).

You can remove the cashew with Py-Cashew.

Really cool, love your style.
Btw, what's the name of the monospaced font? And do you use any custom font renderers? They're awesome! @.@

or the bitstream vera sans
muclemente Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I see! I was away from Ubuntu and didn't notice they've created their own suite of fonts. The mono one is really good!
Thank you!
yield65 Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
i think it's the ubuntu font
CraazyT Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Looks good,

I was big into css in gnome 3.2 but now that I have been using kde and bespin it just blows away gnome IMHO.
mmesantos1 Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Awesome work my friend. :-)
acidrums4 Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
How did you got the menu button with the app icon? All I've got is an ugly button with stripes!
cocooh Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
May i ask :D What font did you use in the screenshot ?
lassekongo83 Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Trebuchet MS
cocooh Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
alright :D thx
dmiranda2 Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
Very nice!

huh? million entries? there is one. then there is one for plasma... because these are
a separate type of apps... so they don't get mixed up. Qt supports qss since........
4.5? now 4.8 so you can style with qss (css). And kde being slower then gnome?
now you are just talking out your ass mr.
lassekongo83 Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
Haha. :p
Whatever reason they have for all those menu entries they surely like to confuse it for me, because I constantly click on the wrong ones. :p
Qss seems to have some problems and is marked as wontfix. With RazorQT it seems to be easier to use qss for some reason. (Check the ambiance razorqt theme for example.)
And the plasma desktop is noticeably slower on my virtual machines compared to gnome-shell that is snappy like a snapper. ;)
Th3R0b Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
2 menu entries is enough to confuse a swede? mmkay.
Everything has problems marked as resolved/wontfix,
what problem are you talking about. Who would want
to style the whole desktop with css anyways? -You
wanna talk about slow? On virtual machines?!?! that
an argument? c'mon.
lassekongo83 Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
I always click on the wrong ones when I'm going to change the appearance, don't ask me why lol. :P
I got my info about qss here: [link]
Actually I would love to have a whole desktop styled with CSS3. :) (Even the plasma part. Gnome-shell is almost there except for the window decorations.)
My VM:s are super snappy all the time, even with KDE, but I do notice a tiny difference. (It isn't that big of a difference. Harddrive load time seems to increase a bit, which could be reduced with a solid state drive.)
Th3R0b Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Oh you mean that, yeah, so they won't make a
thememaker for qss... you can still use it
tho. And that is not true at all what they
say about qss being capable of more then
a qstyle in C++, trust me. You can do pretty
much anything with a qstyle. Plus, a css
theme is stupid, it's static. You have a
point that css on the desktop makes sense
tho. That is kinda static, you always have
a panel and so forth... so performance there
is not an issue, I believe it was suggested
at first they make it css themeable. But then
they went with a svg approach!?!?!? why? well,
you get a HUUUGE clock if you want. If you
know of any other reason, feel free to elaborate.

I don't really know of the performance with
plasma myself, as I don't use it, I don't
like plasma. However, kde apps in general
are much more faster then other apps.

If however your performance is due to high
I/O load then that should not be a problem
with plasma... I don't see why plasma should
cause high I/O load. Some nasty background
daemons like akonadi (naaaasty thing) could
tho. I hate it as I cannot use kmail anymore
when they made it all akonadi :-| sighs.

Now I'm stuck with Opera,,, I don't like it
too much but beats any other alternative
atm.... until Trojita gets multiple accounts
support. Any opinions here? you know of a
good mail client?

Hey, nice to see other KDE desktops.

How did you get the KWrite look? :)
theb4rd Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Ooooh, those toolbar buttons would look excellent text-only!

KDE is insane where customization goes which I'm sure you'll love if you persist a bit. :)
