probably because it is very easy to install; it takes
care of dependencies, it all works together, it has
great font support (xft freetype antialiased), etc.

but to know how it is, you should really give it a
try as a slackware user.

them I'd be happy to tar and gzip them for you.

thank you for the compliment rmartine :)

hey guys,

i have been looking at some of the work produced with karamba and superkaramba and i have to say i am impressed!
i usually use fluxbox (cant wait for the next release), although kde looks tempting with karamba!
lets see who wins :P

anyway, what is the difference between karamba and superkaramba?? im a bit confused.

cheers

Are you saying because I am a RedHat user I am not worthy?

Karamba is the original program that allows you to create sensors. SuperKaramba is my program that builds on Karamba and allows lots of cool stuff because you can add Python code to your widgets. Most of the cool (in my opinion) widgets require SuperKaramba.

And SuperKaramba runs Karamba widgets just fine, but the reverse is not true.
This is the author's own answer.

Alright.... I've taken Jeremy's syndication a step further. I couldn't find a streaming karamba theme for LQ so I made one myself. Here it is in all its nerdyness

Cool Here's mine!

SuSE 8.2 & KDE 3.1.
I made the wallpaper myself with the gimp. You can DL it at www.kde-look.org if you like. Just search for Serial Experiments Linux.

Here it is, full size:

Resized (800x640):

and here is an old one I just found on my webspace, SuSE 8.0 & KDE 3.0. I figured I might as well post it:

worry not ; in my opinion the distribution someone
uses says nothing about worthiness.

it's just that dropline gnome can not be installed on redhat.

That's an awesome screen-shot!
Not a dumb question at all. The "panel/desktop bar/whatever" are superkaramba themes. Superkaramba is an eye candy utility that runs using Kde 3.1. It can also be used with other window managers.

The superkaramba themes that I'm using are hacks/rewrites of existing themes. Actually, they're almost mine now since I've modified them so much you can barely see the original code. My newest one is even cooler than the one you saw. IMHO

The LQ theme I wrote last night and posted on http://www.kdelook.org under Karama themes. If you want the ones I'm actually using get superkaramba working and I'll tar/gzip everything and post them.

Here is my newest. Sorry guys for posting so many similar screenshots. My desktop is slowly evolving and I just want to share

I love Linux.....
