Stuff on your desktop?


Well, I finally have everything in slack 10 working. I want to make my desktop better. I have seen pictures of desktops that have 2 panels, and that's what I want. I want to have programs and stuff on the bottom, and that panel is going to be transparent. Then, on the top, I want another panel that isn't transparent, and I want that to have the KDE start button and the taskbar. Is there something to download to change my panels and stuff? Or what?


Thanks

Sounds like you need SuperKaramba.

Hi!

If you are running on KDE just right-click on the panel and add>>you'll find there to add a new panel. Then right-click again and select preferences. There you can make the one translucent and put the other on top of the screen. You can delete the taskbar from the bottom-pannel and add to the top one, with right-click too.

Hope this helped!

I was looking at that earlier, where can I download some stuff for it? On their site I don't see many things.

I was looking at that too, but I don't want both of them transparent.

You don't get both transparent, only the bottom one. Also so can choose in preferences with panel to configure.

Go to the Karamba/Superkaramba theme section.
