Just for fun


Still kinda giddy about having a functional desktop that I (*think* I) know how to get around in. Just for laffs, I was wondering if anyone knows if someone's been clever/silly enough to write a program that can randomly choose a theme on boot up? And, uh, it'd have to choose only from ones I specify can be in the rotation/pool (ie. not the default ones that already come with the distro).

I have KDE on a KNOPPIX/DEBIAN system, btw.

please use useful thread titles e.g. "how to load random KDE themes", it's much more useful for people trying to help you. thanks

Mr. hyper,
I don't know of any, as I'm not a KDE user but I'd imagine it would be easy enough to write (should be a simple bash script). If you are unable to find something that does it for you let me know and I can whip one up for you.
